September 11, 2013

Lady Gaga GMA

It seems like 2013 is the year for comebacks; Justin Timberlake surprised everyone with outstanding new music, Eminem is back on tour and just released information about his upcoming album, John Mayer is back in the game after a lengthy recovery and now, Mother Monster has stepped back into the limelight and is better than ever!

On September 9th, just a few short days ago, Lady Gaga made her way to Good Morning America in New York City where she performed her new single, “Applause”. But, knowing Gaga, this performance wasn’t going to be anything close to ordinary. Being that Gaga is known for her unbelievable vocals, costumes and outrageous performances, she knew she had to spice things up. Her performance was shown on the big screen live in Times Square where thousands of people gathered and watched from the streets. Gaga took over the city dressed as Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz. She even had a real dog in a little basket as she sang the intro, and I must say, she literally looked just like Dorothy, except for the short black wig she was wearing, but still… props to you Gaga!

After her 2013 VMA performance, many people thought it would be pretty hard to top, but she did it. As soon as the intro ended, Gaga made her way down a yellow brick road right in the GMA studio! She made sure that the Tinman, Lion and Scarecrow were apart of the act, which made the theme even more real and entertaining. As soon as she began to sing and dance, in the blink of an eye her wardrobe changed and she was dressed as a fairy in a pink dress, blonde hair and waving her wand. As the performance continued, Gaga disappears for a moment while her dancers continued with the choreography until she returned. As she made her way back in, she was dressed as a scary looking version of Dorothy, almost like a “Dorothy gone wrong” look and finished the song.

If you didn’t already know, Gaga released new album information a few weeks ago and then decided to perform a few unheard songs at the iTunes Festival while announcing the track list for her upcoming album, ARTPOP. Gaga performed 8 separate cuts from 8 different songs on the new album which had her Little Monsters screaming for more, much more! Not only did she put on another amazing performance, but it’s quite obvious how much dedication she has put into the time she had off and hopefully the next time she decides to take a break, it won’t be for this long.
