Brutally honest rankings of Oscars 2019 musical performances, from Queen to Lady Gaga

Brutally honest rankings of Oscars 2019 musical performances, from Queen to Lady Gaga

On an Oscar night that was low on exhilarating moments, we could have used the star power of Kendrick Lamar and SZA, who skipped out on performing their nominated hit song “All the Stars” from superhero movie “Black Panther.”

But even without rap and R&B royalty within our midst, there were still a few things to admire from the performances during Sunday night’s telecast (most of which were nearly axed, as part of the academy’s divisive efforts to cut time). From “Bohemian Rhapsody” subjects Queen to “A Star Is Born” lovebirds Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper, we've ranked those who took the stage from best to worst.

If Jackson and Ally Maine had a happier fate in "A Star Is Born," this is probably what "Shallow" would've sounded like had they performed it years later in a jazz bar: both dressed to the nines, locking eyes from across a grand piano, still very much in love as they dueted on the already-iconic power ballad.

Of the three times we've seen Gaga and Cooper sing the song together – first in the film and last month during Gaga's Vegas show, during which she literally fawned at his feet – this was certainly the tamest, most straightforward "Shallow" that we've seen. Cooper, dropping Jackson's gravelly voice, was mostly in tune, while Gaga performed her usual vocal gymnastics. But their swoon-worthy chemistry made this the telecast's easy highlight, as the former co-stars sparked romance rumors on social media with their unusually close and googly-eyed performance.
