But the moment was also melancholy — a farewell to a song we've all belted out in the shower three-million times this awards season and to a showmance many wish was more than just good acting.
But have no fear, Jackson and Ally stans. Warner Bros. has announced that on Friday it will release in theaters a new version of Cooper's directorial debut, featuring 12 additional minutes of precious footage for one! week! only!
According to the studio, many of the new scenes will be musical too, including extended performances of “Black Eyes,” “Alibi,” and yes, “Shallow,” which Gaga’s character will sing more a capella. There's also a moment in which the two characters write a new song together called “Clover,” which you can check out below.
In the scene, Ally lies on her stomach on a stage while Jack strums the guitar, and she enthusiastically responds to his new lyrics by tenderly pushing a piece of hair behind his ear.
