Sorry, A Star Is Born fans: We probably won’t be getting a “Shallow” duet between Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper at Sunday’s Grammy Awards. Although Mother Monster is slated to perform the power ballad solo, her co-star will miss the ceremony completely to attend the BAFTA (British Academy of Film and Television Arts) Awards on the same day, Entertainment Tonight reports.
A Star Is Born is nominated in seven categories (including a Best Director nod for Cooper) at the BAFTAs and its hit song, “Shallow,” is nominated in four categories (including Recored of the Year and Song of the Year, two of the biggest titles) at the Grammys.
However, not all is lost. Cooper and Gaga are scheduled to perform the widely popular duet live at the Oscars, which take place on February 24. While the news may come as a relief for ASIB fans, Cooper is not so excited.
“I’m sure I’ll be terrified,” he told E! News of performing at the Academy Awards. He added to Extra, “I was like, ‘Why? I must have some sort of death wish!'” (Perhaps it’s for the best that he’s sitting out of the Grammys after all.)
Luckily for Cooper, he’s had some practice in sharing the stage with Gaga in front of a massive audience. Last month, the actor made a surprise appearance during the superstar’s Las Vegas residency and joined her at the piano for a sweet, impromptu performance of their now-iconic duet. We’ll get a reprise performance soon, just not at the Grammys this weekend.
The Grammys air on Sunday, February 10 at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.
