It's just one week to go, until Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga take to the stage at The Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles to perform their duet 'Shallow' together!

But the 44-year-old actor has since revealed he will be singing as himself at the Oscars and not his A Star Is Born alter-ego Jackson Maine.

That's right.

Cooper won't be using his gravely southern drool as it's "gone".

Appearing on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert over the weekend, he said: "He's gone. I am not going to try and get him back."

"But I will be me singing."

However, he is making sure he hits the notes by rehearsing with his vocal coach from the movie.

"I'm going to start rehearsing with this great vocal coach who I love, Roger Love, who I worked with all the time on the movie," he continued.

"I hope to be in present and enjoy it and hopefully people love the song sung that night."

Lady Gaga surprises audience by bringing Bradley Cooper on stage to sing 'Shallow' live in Vegas!

The A Star Is Born director recently took to the stage with Lady Gaga at her Las Vegas show to sing the song but he has now revealed he was acting throughout the performance.

He said: "The truth is as was revealed when I went on stage at Vegas, I had to create a character because that guy certainly isn't a rock star."

"So I went up there and watch the video back and we went up there and sang it and I just sort of look like this idiot from Philadelphia singing with Lady Gaga..."

"Luckily I was on pitch and thank God, but I was like, 'Oh, Jackson's gone.'"

We can't wait to see them together!
