Need a reason to watch the Grammy Awards in a couple weeks? Here’s a good one — as part of their new partnership with the Grammy Awards, Intel is working with Lady Gaga and Nile Rodgers, producer of the late David Bowie’s album Let’s Dance, on a tribute to Bowie for this year’s show.
There’s no word on what Intel’s part will be, but with Lady Gaga as the creative mind behind the project, it’s safe to assume some of their more experimental technologies will be used in some pretty novel and unexpected ways. Rolling Stone is reporting that the tribute will consist of a medley of three or four David Bowie songs over about seven minutes.
It should definitely be worth checking out. We’re interested to see what Intel is bringing to the table — we’re guessing their RealSense camera will figure prominently, and we’re hoping for no holograms. But, tech aside, Lady Gaga is a great choice for a Bowie tribute. Fashion and change are defining themes of both musicians’ careers, and we’re sure Lady Gaga is going to come up with some terrific ways to pay tribute to Bowie’s wide range of looks and personas.
If you want to watch Intel help Gaga channel Ziggy Stardust and the Thin White Duke, the Grammy Awards are taking place on the night of February 15.
