Gaga opened the show with a high energy performance of her latest single, “Marry The Night”, off her album “Born This Way”. Her skeleton make-up reminded me of Zombie Boy who starred in the music video for her album title track single.
After being announced for three GRAMMY nominations during the show, Gaga returned to the stage for a powerhouse performance with Sugarland. Mother Monster and Jennifer Nettles killed it with a duet of the country tone “You and I”, Gaga’s previous single.
During the performance — which closed out the telecast — Gaga sat at her grand piano with “Panda eye” make-up and clad in a shiny onyx one shouldered gown designed by Carolina Herrera.
It appeared to be custom, but reminded me of the yellow and black design from Ms. Herrera’s Resort 2011 collection.
The huge bow applique was just extravagant enough to highlight a glamorous look for Gaga. I was so glad to see her in this in place of just a bra and briefs. She had worn that earlier in the show — under a blazer.
I wonder if Gaga will select another design by Ms. Herrera for the 54th GRAMMY Awards when they take place and air LIVE on February 12, 2012 — only on CBS.
