Lady Gaga to perform David Bowie tribute at Grammys

Lady Gaga will pay tribute to David Bowie at this year's Grammy Awards.

The British singer died in early January aged 69 after a secret battle with cancer.

The music world was left reeling, with big fan Gaga particularly hit hard.

It has now been confirmed that the 'ARTPOP' star will honour Bowie with a special performance at the Grammys on February 15.

The ceremony tweeted: "Six-time GRAMMY winner @ladygaga will perform a special tribute to #DavidBowie at the 58th #GRAMMYs on @CBS Feb. 15!"

The awards’ executive producer Ken Ehrlich said: "We had already booked Lady Gaga on this year's show, but when David passed, almost in a single moment, we knew we had to change direction.

"We immediately spoke and agreed that she should be the one to honour David; she's perfect for it."

Bowie will also receive a posthumous lifetime achievement prize at the awards.
