One of the highlights at this year’s Academy Awards was Lady Gaga’s Sound of Music tribute. Sure the show was already long, but Gaga killed it, and it was nice to see her interact with Julie Andrews, who she obviously held in high regard. I would have never expected her to completely ditch the crazy outfits and sing classic tunes like “My Favorite Things” and “Edelweiss,” but she did and she nailed it, suggesting she’s got more range than some thought. Now let’s just hope that that range extends to acting as well.

It was just announced that Lady Gaga is officially set to star in American Horror Story season 5. I never saw Machete Kills, but I american-horror-story-hotel-lady-gaga-600x502did catch her performance in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For and distinctly noted that she was surprisingly natural in the minimal role, so perhaps she can handle a bigger part on this show.

On top of that, the Lady Gaga casting announcement video also revealed the theme for season 5, American Horror Story: Hotel. Right now I’m imagining scenarios like what goes down in The Shining, but really, anything is possible from hauntings to murders and more. No matter what type of scares Ryan Murphy and his team run with, I’ve got my fingers crossed that they stick close to what they achieved in Murder House by making sure that everything that goes down on the show is connected to the location. As we saw in Freak Show, Coven and Asylum, straying too far from the theme of the season rarely works out well.
