Watch Lady Gaga's Stunning Sound of Music Medley With Legend Julie Andrews

Amazingly enough, it has been 50 years since Robert Wise's The Sound of Music arrived in cinemas, establishing Brit Julie Andrews as a musical star just a year after Mary Poppins.

And The Sound of Music was marked out for a major tribute at the Oscars 2015 last night - fitting for a film which one 5 statues including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Sound Mixing, Film Editing and Score. And boy did they go big, with the one and only Lady Gaga making her Oscar debut with a stunning medley of songs from the musical hit. She belted out tracks including The Hills are Alive, My Favourite Things, Edelweiss and Climb Every Mountain before being joined on stage by Maria herself - that's Julie Andrews to those who don't know.

The full video isn't up online but here are the clips we've scavenged. Lady Gaga is one heck of a singer.

Andrews spoke about the experience of making the film: "It's hard to believe that 50 years have gone by since that joyous film was released. I blinked and suddenly here I am! I think that I do speak for everyone connected to the movie when I say, we all really felt blessed to be a part of it. And as for me, well, how lucky can a girl get?" She then gave out the award for Best Original Score to Alexandre Desplat for The Grand Budapest Hotel.

And the best news? Andrews herself will be in Dublin in March 2015 for the Jameson Dublin International Film Festival, with a public interview and an introduction to a special screening of none other than The Sound of Music! More info here.
