VIDEO: It seems David Bowie’s family didn’t rate Lady Gaga’s tribute to the legend

David Bowie was honoured at the Grammys in a musical tribute led by Lady Gaga.

The singer drew a standing ovation from the star-studded audience for her six-minute performance of nine Bowie hits.

Gaga, backed by Nile Rodgers, who produced Bowie’s ‘Let’s Dance’ album, sang ‘Space Oddity’, ‘Changes’, ‘Ziggy Stardust’, ‘Suffragette City’, ‘Rebel, Rebel’, ‘Fashion’, ‘Fame’ and ‘Let’s Dance’.

But it looks like the most important critics didn’t appreciate Gaga’s depiction of Ziggy.

Bowie’s son Duncan Jones, who has been acting as a spokesperson for the family since the death of the legend, posted this after the performance.

However, there were many music fans who expressed their love for the performance, with many stating they were ‘moved to tears’.
