When Lady Gaga collaborated with BLACKPINK on a track off her 2020 album Chromatica, it was probably the first time that many had seen her name tied with the K-Pop scene.
However, Lady Gaga has been an inspiration for many idols since long ago thanks to her over-the-top performances and unique artistic flair. Many artists have covered her over the years, but here are just 5 performances.
5. Rolling Quartz
Rolling Quartz dropped this punk-rock version of “Bad Romance” in 2020, and they totally nail the spirit of the song while putting their own interesting spin on it.
The girls’ powerful vocals are a perfect fit for this cover of “Pokerface,” one of Lady Gaga’s most iconic songs that fueled her rocket to stardom. The crowd is totally loving this performance, and we are right there with them!
TWICE got everyone’s attention when they performed this cover of Gaga’s most notorious self-love anthem. They are eating the stage up with confidence and surely doing Lady Gaga proud!
2. SHINee’s Key
Key from SHINee is a proud fan of Lady Gaga, and he certainly proved it by covering not one, but two of her songs in one sitting! His powerful voice works so perfectly here, we can’t deal.
1. NU’EST’s Ren
Chances are high that Ren of NU’EST is Lady Gaga’s biggest fan in K-Pop and maybe even ever. He’s covered her numerous times in both song and dance, and makes no secret what a big fan he is of hers. He completely nails this cover of her song “Shallow” from the 2018 film A Star Is Born. We hope that someday he’ll be able to collaborate with Gaga on a track!
