Who knew - Lady Gaga can sing!!! I hope this doesn't ruin her pop music career - being able to sing

happened to walk through the room while my significant other was watching the Oscars and I was floored to hear Lady Gaga singing and she really has a voice. She was singing songs from the Sound of Music. Her singing was, dare I say it: pretty!

Jesus! I hope this doesn't ruin her pop music career!

1. I was surprised too

Didn't realize it was her until I sat down and actually watched. She is such a relief - she hits the notes!!! I was beginning to wonder if anyone even cares about that anymore.

2. She could always sing.

 

But with her recent appearances with Tony Bennett, the Grammy's, the Stevie Wonder tribute and now the Oscars, she's reaching a broader audience and those folks are discovering her "talent".

3. Funny thing is - I cannot bear to listen to Julie Andrews very much - too high pitched.

 

So I have never watched the movie. Saw the musical in Philly, at the Schubert, in 1963. Winced when Florence Henderson was wheeled out on a roller-skated mountain peak, screaming "The heeeeeels are aliiiiive" in a key I just can't listen to.
But I loved Lady Gaga's voice, lower register, perfect.

5. Lady Gaga seems to be reinventing herself, or getting back to basics

Being the very talented singer-songwriter she was before she became famous:

Apparently they only gave her 3rd place. FFS

7. She is a cut above most of the pop music stars these days

 

That said, I have heard some songs, and she always seems to me to be doing a poor Madonna impression in her singing and songs.

8. Well, duh. She was more than holding her own with the legendary

 

Tony Bennett years ago. She has some serious vocal chops.

10. It was interesting showing the contrast of her singing classically vs her famous persona

11. And she writes and plays piano.

Very talented. Not the biggest fan of her songs, but she's the real deal.

12. I love talent and she has it in spades

When I heard she was going to sing, I continued to watch.
I saw her on Idol once singing while floating over the piano and playing it. It was impressive.
What she did at the Oscars was very smart. She already had a name, so she showed her talent and will have staying power. I did not know Julie Andrews possessed such vast octave levels. That alone would spur Lady Gaga to show her stuff... bravo!

13. I'm glad people listened.

I knew she was quite talented. I ignored the weird costumes and knew she could write a well crafted pop song.
She does have excellent chops. I like Born This Way and Bad Romance.

I'm glad people listened to her singing straight Broadway music and wearing a respectable dress, so the visuals didn't overwhelm the audio.

She has a much better voice than Madonna has ever thought about having.

Credentials: I took many years of piano and violin studying classical and also took 2 years of voice lessons and learned to sing opera in French, German and Italian. Found out I was a mezzo-soprano.

There are a few pop singers out there with really good voices. Celine Dion (except for that crappy Titanic song), Cyndi Lauper, Cher.
Adele has a good voice but her songs are not terribly imaginative.

15. Here are two of Madonna's best songs where she sings, IMHO

 

Just listen to the music and don't watch the video, she sounds really good in these songs, not only are the songs top notch, but she sings really well in them too.
