We’ve officially figured out the one thing that Lady Gaga’s “Judas” was missing all along: a choir of nuns.
In a newly released video, the U.K. cast of “The Sound of Music” pays tribute to the “Born This Way” singer with a musical-inspired montage of her hits. Though the world is just seeing the amazing performances now, the tribute was taped early last year in response to Gaga’s flawless “SOM” medley at the Oscars.
Director Anton Belmonte told GSN that “it wasn’t supposed to be released. I’m not sure how it has actually come out as it wasn’t initially approved by the Rodgers and Hammerstein estate. I’m shocked how it suddenly appeared online yesterday. It was a real group effort between myself, Danielle, [musical director] Jeremy Wootton, and [producer] Chris Clegg to get it to all come together. I’ve always loved the show since I was a kid, and I like Lady Gaga. I’m so shocked by how much people are loving our tribute!”
Shocked? Check out the clip below to see why Belmonte shouldn’t be—it’s that good.
