"They [Jackson and Ally] kind of fall in love in that scene in the film," the director explained, referring to the duo singing "Shallow" for the first time. "It's that explosive moment that happens to them on a stage in front of thousands of people…It would have been so weird if we were both on stools facing the audience."

While addressing the steamy Oscars performance between the two, the outlet revealed that Cooper "had conceived the performance to unfold like a scene from the movie in part to help manage his own fears about singing live."
