    VERY VERY GOOD but it felt like it was just getting started. It would have been her best performance if she had finished it with a 2 minute version of 'Poker Face' or 'Bad Romance'

    Absolutely BRILLIANT!!!!!!!!!!

    It was that magical moment just before the orgasm.

    Let's face it, NO OTHER RELEVANT POPSTAR right now could afford such a performance. That's what she's all about.

    She owned the show from A to Z.

    Afford in what sense? Because if you're talking cost-wise, what exactly cost so much?

    :D

    I meant, she's the only one around right now who can sell such a "different" performance.

    She doesn't need hundred dancers, screens and flashy lights on stage to make it exciting and grab the attention. She nailed it tonight.

    I loved it, but it would have been nice if she had sung some hooks.

    the Telephone part got a bit boring, I liked the intro to Dance in the Dark but it ended up needing some oomph

    Absolutely amazing

    At first I wasnt GETTING IT, the fact she sung no hooks and none of her hits. It's like Cheryl doing an acoustic version of NOTED ALBUM TRACK "Happy Hour".

    But she remained ultimately captivating, the Dance In The Dark remix was a sight, and I could have had her continue for the next 10 minutes.

    OH don't diss Happy Hour, it's by Danish SUPER PRODUCER SOULSHOCK.

    He's the best we've got apparently.

    Yup. I'm definitely tired of the GaGa does GaGa 'standards' schtick. Any appreciative audience knows that she's capable of dancing AND singing her (considerable) balls off to 'Pokerface' on a live stage.

    I can't help but think that her live interpretations only serve to highlight how much she relies upon her IMAGE to reinforce the whirlwind. The songs don't REALLY hold up to being stripped down; she won't convert a non-fan into being a consumer of 'Fame Monster' with that performance. It will only translate to already-fans. And yes, I know there's a lot of them.

    Yep I agree with this.

    But even as an already-fan, Telephone for me is all about the energy. I didn't think the stripped down version was anything special.

    I don't really get why she dedicated Telephone to Alexander. She could have worked his name into Dance In The Dark instead (you will never fall apart Alexander you're still in our hearts)

    Oh well

    The stripped down version of Telephone was interesting, and I love how she always attempts something new, but it was a bit like she was trying to recreate the success of Poker Face (STRIPPED), and Poker Face 2.0 worked because the stripped back and rearranged it was harmonically really interesting. Telephone (STRIPPED) was just unmemorable.

    She looked flawless though, and I loved the brash uncommercialness of it all.

    For the first time in a while I found her quite dull. Especially when speaking; the one thing she's missing - and it's sorely lacking - is the personality to match her persona. Sorry, no offence, but it's true.

    Too slow at the beginning, she should have just done a bit of "Dance in the Dark" on piano and then gone into full :disco: mode with "Telephone".

    She did the piano thing too many times before, it's boring now. The second part was a bit better, but I'm getting sick of her she and Beyonce need to fuck off for a year or so.

    Yes it is true. I noted this months ago and at last someone else finally agrees.

    Yeah the Piano Elton John-y thing was interesting the first couple of times but doing it to every song makes them sound even more samey than they already are.

    She was terrible accepting the awards too. I think she's having a complete breakdown.

    Her personality/mood changes a lot between appearances.

    Yesterday she was extremely emotional, I guess she's been shocked by MacQueen's suicide + the fact she won 3 awards.

    But on stage during her shows or in other interviews, she's much more outspoken and often shows a more witty side.

    But why HER more than anyone else? And whilst I'm not saying there is a particular period of grief, it's not like she found out on the night.

    I just find her all a bit FALSE if I'm honest. Great performer (most of the time), just not a very good PERSON.

    I don't buy that at all. She ran up to Jonathan Ross and gave him a hug - she was hardly grief-stricken throughout the evening.

    I've made the point before but as far as I'm concerned she's never said anything even vaguely interesting or memorable.

    Well, they were good friends, he made like 60% of the outfits she's famous for (including all the Bad Romance ones).
    Anyway, I'm not in the position to know if her behaviour is always authentic or not, or if she is a "good person". But to be honest, this is not what makes a great popstar...

    Huh? I'm sure they were very good friends but I'm talking about her jubilant behaviour.

    And who is talking about her being a good person? Edit: O I C, Slave is!
