There was never a question that there would be a David Bowie tribute at this year’s Grammy Awards. Today, the show’s producers announced that Lady Gage will be performing that tribute—solo.

According to the Grammys website, the performance will be a “multisensory testament to the icon’s incredible artistry and limitless creativity.” Nile Rodgers, the legendary Chic guitarist who produced Bowie’s 1983 chart-topper Let’s Dance, will serve as its musical director.

Grammys executive producer Ken Ehrlich said that Gaga, whose song “Til It Happens To You” is a nominee for Best Song Written For Visual Media, was already booked to perform at the show. But when Bowie died, Ehrlich quickly began talks with Gaga and her manager to put together the tribute. According to the New York Times, many artists asked to participate, but Ehrlich chose to stick with Gaga’s solo performance, which will last “six or seven minutes” and cover “three or four songs.”

The Grammy Awards will air on CBS on Feb. 15 at 8:00 p.m. EST. You can read our David Bowie eulogy here.
