Oscar nominated singer/actress, Lady Gaga, was overwhelmed with emotions and shed tears after newbie Oscars co-producer David Hill said her rendition at Sunday’s Super Bowl 50 was the best he had ever heard.
Hill was onstage with fellow Oscars producer Reginald Hudlin to share a few words, when he gave a special shout out to Gaga for her performance of the national anthem at the Super Bowl.
Hill, a producer of several past Super Bowls, called Gaga’s performance “the best rendition I have ever heard, and, trust me, I’ve heard a lot.”
That was enough to draw tears from Gaga’s eyes who was surprised by the unexpected praise. Her mouth dropped open when she heard her name and tears rolled down her cheeks as Hill gushed. She was was so overcome with emotion that she rested her face in her hands before taking a deep breath to regain her composure and wipe the tears from her face.
