Queen guitarist Brian May has shared a new statement about pop star Lady Gaga in an emotional letter on Instagram. He wrote:

“I see a little silhouetto…

The Night of the Oscars is still reverberating in my head. Thanks to @triniqueenie3d I can relive this moment. The exquisite live performance by @ladygaga and @bradley_cooper.official was for me the greatest art of the whole evening.

In a moment when nobody was judging from racial or sexual or gender-preference agendas, and nobody was pushing a political agenda, these two brave performers got up cold from sitting in the audience and BLEW US ALL AWAY.

It was a moment for us all to remember what all these award ceremonies were traditionally about – rewarding the ability to engage, to emotionally move – and above all – to entertain us, in the true sense of the word.

All Hail Ga Ga/Cooper – a match made in Heaven. Art for Art’s sake is still alive !!! This this song so richly deserved its Oscar. And – oh yes – my silhouette seems to be a central part of this moment ! No credit to me – but you can probably see the expression of joy on my face !”

A fan responded:

“I have waited for Your opinion about this beautiful performance Mr.May … I’m so glad that You love it and Yours performance was great too (as usual).”

Another fan wrote:

“I am so in agreement with you Bri I thought it was beaufiful. I will say I was distracted too because I was always looking for you and Anita in the audience. I truly hope you had a magical evening and that you’ve been resting up since.

I miss you so much when you don’t post for days but I know you have a full life and there’s plenty more to attend to than IG. At any rate so happy to see your post this evening. You truly are such an inspiration <3″
