Bradley Cooper Says He Has a 'Death Wish' for Agreeing to Sing at Oscars with Lady Gaga

Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga will be taking the Oscars stage to sing their nominated hit song "Shallow"

Bradley Cooper is just a few weeks away from making his awards show singing debut.

The A Star Is Born director, writer and actor, 44, is set to perform at the 2019 Oscars with costar Lady Gaga, 32, after their hit song “Shallow” earned a best original song nod.

“Yes! It’s terrifying, absolutely,” Cooper told Extra of singing live at the Oscars. “I was like, ‘Why? I must have some sort of death wish.'”

But it won’t be the first time the pair sings “Shallow” live. Cooper joined Gaga onstage for a surprise performance while he was attending her new Las Vegas residency show.

“It was wonderful,” Cooper said of the performance, which quickly went viral after videos came out.

A fan-made video showed Cooper sitting in a private area near the front of the audience. “So I’m gonna be a little chance-y,” she continued. “Yo Bradley, you wanna come up and do this one?”

Cooper agreed and made his way to the stage, where they shared a hug and she led him to the piano.

“I even got you in-ears,” Gaga said of the earbuds singers use to hear themselves in concert venues.

“Jackson never used these,” Cooper joked in reply, referencing his rebel character in the film.

Cooper and Gaga are both up for awards for their performances at the Oscars. The film is also nominated for best picture.

The 91st Annual Academy Awards will air live Feb. 24 on ABC at 8 p.m. ET.
