It was a pleasant surprise for all the fans who were not aware that the director was going to show up. The show was to prepare them both for their appearance at the Oscars.

When asked about the performance Bradley said:

“I had to just Zen out and just pray I wouldn't ruin her show,”

Bradley said he felt the pressure from the fact that Lady Gaga had been on stage for two straight hours, which means he had to kill it.

The song Shallow is from Bradley Cooper's first movie as a director, titled A Star is Born. In the film, Cooper takes the role of a country music star, Jack, who is struggling with alcohol addiction, while Lady Gaga plays the role of Ally, a singer with whom Jack starts a professional and romantic relationship. Ally goes on to become a big pop star.
