Medley was performed for film's 50th anniversary
Lady Gaga performed a medley of songs from The Sound Of Music at the Oscars last night (February 22).
The performance coincided with the 50th anniversary of the musical, first released in 1965. During her performance, Gaga performed four songs from the film including ‘The Sound Of Music’, ‘My Favourite Things’, ‘Edelweiss’ and ‘Climb Ev’ry Mountain’.
Backed by a choir and a string section, the performance was watched by Julie Andrews, who starred in the original film as Maria Von Trapp, and introduced by Scarlett Johansson.
