Lady Gaga's Grammy night tribute to David Bowie pushed the boundaries of costume changes by having the star of today morph into several Bowie incarnations of old, not through makeup artists scrubbing her face and reapplying paint between songs -- but via overlaying projections atop her face.

Intel was involved in creating the stage show and the clever overlaid makeup and facial (ch-ch-ch) changes, as you can tell from the 'Making Of...' video in which several Intel logos feature prominently:
