Fast forward two decades and Bradley's career has seriously taken off and he and Lady Gaga performed Shallow at the Oscars themselves.
They turned up the heat when Cooper joined Gaga on her piano bench, singing their last harmonies into one microphone together, and fans were all over it, declaring the pair stole the show.
Incidentally the closest Madonna has ever gotten to an Oscar was not at all, when she was snubbed of even a nomination for playing Eva Peron in 1996's "Evita", despite winning a Best Actress Golden Globe for the same role. "Thank you so much".
Madonna responded by sharing a meme of former USA presidential candidate Hillary Clinton looking at her phone with the text reading: "Can't hear you".
During the Oscars ceremony, Irina sat between GaGa and Cooper, but was also seen giving a standing ovation after their performance.

Separated from her Dutch IS fighter husband, and after giving birth to a son in the camp last weekend, she now wants to come home. When asked if she could be rehabilitated following her time with the terror group, she replied: "I am willing to change".
"There's not a single person on the planet that could have sang this song with me but you".
She singled out film's director and co-star Bradley Cooper for believing in her and their song. "And I still admire her, no matter what she might think of me", the singer says. It was an overwhelming moment of joy for the pop star, who celebrated her win with a honest speech alongside fellow co-writers Mark Ronson, Anthony Rossomando, and Andrew Wyatt.
After Gaga and Cooper finished their performance of "Shallow" on the Oscars stage, Shayk was reportedly one of the first people to stand and clap for the stars. "I can't imagine having the courage to do it without her", Cooper further explained at the Toronto Film Festival. "I just want Madonna to push me up against the wall and kiss me and tell me I'm a piece of shit".
Body language expert Judi James studied the behaviour of Lady Gaga and Bradley, sharing her thoughts with Express.co.uk.
Lady Gaga's spectacular necklace was easily among the prettiest accessories worn on the red carpet of the 91st Academy Awards on Sunday evening in Los Angeles (which is Monday morning in India). "It's about how many times you stand up and are courageous and you keep on going".
