Ben Platt and Max Sheldon perform ‘Shallow’ together and it’s amazing!
The hit Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper song has been bombarding the airways ever since the Star is Born remake was released last year.
The song went to on to win Gaga a Golden Globe, a BAFTA and an Academy Award for Best Original Song.
Although the original version has somewhat been played to death, we cannot help but love Platt and Sheldon’s performance.
Before the performance at New York’s 54Below earlier this month, theatre star Sheldon suggested a remake of the movie ‘but with two dudes’ which was met with cheers from the audience.
Platt – who publicly came out this year – then responds: “Should we do a preview of that now? Will you be my Gaga?”
The two then went on to give an outstanding performance of the song with Platt taking on the role of Cooper and Sheldon as Gaga.
Sheldon then says after: “If anyone has a contact for Gaga… send it!”
