No one could ever call Lady Gaga lazy. Still whizzing around the world and working as hard as ever on the Born This Way promotional trail, the singer stopped off at the 2012 Grammy Nominations Concert to deliver not one, but two knock-out performances.
Fully embracing the dark vibe of Marry the Night, a zombie painted Gaga wowed the audience with a note for note perfect rendition of the 80's inspired dance song. Previously, I hadn't been that impressed with performances of the song- for example the X-factor version was too stiff, and the MTV EMA rendition was too static- but this one really brought it, with the perfect mix of theatrics, dancing, charisma, and vocals!
Still playing with the left over Halloween make up, Gaga appeared again, after all the Grammy nominations had been revealed, looking like a cross between Marilyn Monroe and a panda. This time she performed my least favourite track from Born this way, You and I. But the genius addition of country duo SugarLand, who joined Gaga on stage, gave the song a different dimension that made the song work a lot better for me. The chemistry between Gaga and singer Jennifer Nettles was palpable and their voices complimented each other brilliantly. Real musical artistry was on display here!
