Lady Gaga and Bowie

The singer is to be joined on stage by Bowie's friend and collaborator Nile Rodgers.

The 58th Annual GRAMMY Awards will pay homage to David Bowie with a music tribute from Lady Gaga.

The singer will honour the late rockstar along with Chic's Nile Rodgers, who produced Bowie's Let's Dance album.

GRAMMYs executive producer, Ken Ehrlich, said: "We had already booked Lady Gaga on this year’s show, but when David passed — almost in a single moment — we knew we had to change direction. We immediately spoke and agreed that she should be the one to honor David. She’s perfect for it. So I reached out to Nile [Rodgers] and, before long, we were on our way to creating what we believe will not only make a great GRAMMY Moment, but one befitting of David.”

The show will take place on 15 February 2016.

Lady Gaga has long cited Bowie as a major influence, and currently has Bowie's Blackstar logo as her Twitter profile picture.

The Poker Face singer also posted a throwback photo of the star on her page.

Meanwhile, the details of Bowie's Will were revealed this week, with $100m reportedly being left to the star's wife, Iman, and two children Duncan and Alexandria Jones.
