Lady Gaga: Grammys 2011 'Born This Way' Performance!

Lady Gaga belts out her latest song, “Born This Way,” at the 2011 Grammy Awards held at the Staples Center on Sunday (February 13) in Los Angeles.

Earlier in the evening, the 24-year-old singer made her way down the red carpet in a giant egg!

Gaga then broke out of the egg on stage and was “born this way.”

In addition to Best Short Form Music Video, Gaga picked up the award for best Pop Vocal Album for Fame Monster!

“Thank you so much from the bottom of her heart,” she said during her acceptance speech, specifically naming her fans, her sister, her parents, and her longtime managers Troy Carter and Vincent Hebert.

    @ERIC: some of her record breaking has to due with the fact that her monsters are buying multiple records. My niece bought 10 because all the others are saying buy as many as you can. Pathetic cant wait til these grow up a lil and are over her

  • jwl

    this reminds me so much of Madonna twenty years ago .
    Don’t go for second best baby
    Put your love to the test

    express yourself (OR AT LEAST BE ORIGINAL)

  • Vlad

    I used to love gaga, but I don’t know, I think the fame has gone to her head and everything. Don’t like the song, definitely not as catchy as her other ones. As for her performance and what she wears, well what the HELL was everyone expecting her to walk down the red carpet in jeans and a shirt? or maybe even a DRESS?! YO SHES LADY GAGA , you guys haven’t figured it out yet, she’ll keep shoving it down your throats till you do.
    Also, she used to be way hotter in her 2008-2009 just dance days. I miss the old original GAGA. thumbs up if you agree.

  • Michael

    THIS PERFORMANCE WAS AMAZING GAGA YOU NEVER FAIL TO SURPRISE ME SINGING AND DANCING AT THE SAME TIME IS HARD SHE DID IT LIKE IT WAS NO PROBLEM

  • sugar and spice

    <3 gaga music she is so different from everyone else

  • Russell

    Lady GaGa Rules I don’t know what these other people were watching but the ONLY performance of the Grammys’ that inspired me was Lady GaGa’s I was born this way I am in my forties and sick with bronchitis and I was out of my chair and dancing truly inspiring and fresh performance

  • yeah, said the line again

    plus Gaga have also twice, TWICE performing on the Grammy stage. And only best singer that NEVER DOING LIPSYNC that ever performed up there. Have Britney? Nah! That’s why she never performed there.
    How dare you to say Gaga is less better than Britney, so hysterical.
    Gaga wrote some song for Britney you know? Hah!

  • Love Da GAGA

    It’s funny that people make fun of GAGA but that’s what these songs are about we don’t care, She does not care “WE WERE BORN THIS WAY” These songs even Pink and Katie they sing because people are ugly inside and only like to critisize because it makes yourself feel good meanwhile you’re hurting inside. Half the haters who are men are in the closet maybe like to dress like a woman, and the Girls are freaks and feel fat and have crappy reputations. We are human God still loves ya!

    @Jordy:

    Go back to your job at McDonald’s and Kmart haters and stop hating on Gaga…the woman is beyond talented.

    @dfbd:

    gaga could have gone all out! all she did was come out an egg and play with her ponytail. wtf lady gaga

  • Mel

    i think that it was completely original. she chose not to do her normal over the top performance because she wanted her songs message to shine. i honestly wasnt a huge fan on the song when i heard it friday but after seeing her performance tonight i think it is great. It may not be like bad romance but it is truly GAGA

  • Sam

    GET WITH THE TIMES PPL! MADONNA ETC HAV HAD THEIR TIME! GAGA IS THE FUTURE AND HER CAREER IS GOING UP AND UP AND OF COURSE WILL ONE DAY CALM DOWN LIKE MADONNAS ETC BUT FOR NOW SHE IS THE QUEEN!!!!!

  • common sense.

    BLOND AMBITION PONYTAIL.

    BORN THIS WAY IS AN EXPRESS YOURSELF REHASH, AND NOW THIS?

    GAGA, ENOUGH ALREADY. CHANGE YOUR NAME TO MADONNA 2.0 AND BE DONE WITH IT.

  • http://seriousbodoh SERIOUSbodoh

    1. she was lipsynching, except for the talking parts
    2. choreography was bad
    3. boring as hell, her past performances were better
    4. the egg thing at the red carpet. come on respect other artists and walk bitch u aint queen. it just yells out fame whore
    5. the piano part was quite cool though
    6. congrats to lady Antebellum
    - oh and total rip off of madonna! the song the hair. funny that during grammys express yourself was trending world wide on twitter. haha guess ppl are realising the similarities, madonna should have done the whole kanye west thing, but she wasnt at the grammys too bad

  • http://seriousbodoh SERIOUSbodoh

    @Jon: hahaha funny you talked about your IQ dropping. hell yea. your grammar is really bad. gaga and perez can suck each others dick

  • LesbroHeather

    terrible.. I’m so let down- she needs to at least stay on the same level she has been, if not better- her fans expect at LEAST what she has done thus far… this tonight, and the song itself was so sad… its terrible- I’ll be surprised if it doesn’t murder her career

  • LesbroHeather

    @LesbroHeather:

    and I appriciate her writing a song inspired by the LGBT community- but christ, can we get more than 10 mins for a song?! (they say she wrote it in ten mins…. and you can tell)

  • diana

    guys, let’s all chill. lady gaga basically said that we were were all wrong and that whitney houston was the inspiration of this song and that she pictured only her singing it. Bwahahaha! did anyone really believe that bc i sure as hell didn’t. no way in hell would whitney sing that song…not her style. that was a good one gaga. lol

  • Whatever

    @oheneba1:
    oh Yeah at least she actually sings at concerts unlike those fake people you just mentioned

  • Cindy

    Everyones music today all sound the effing same anyways. So really no one is really “original”. People can talk all the crap they want but Lady Gaga is still a hit! If you don’t like her music carry on and quit complaining! :D

  • common sense.

    omg that was effin hilarious, madonna doing kanye.

    can u imagine if she did do that? THAT WOULD BE THE BEST THING EVER!!!! SHE TOTALLY SHOULD HAVE!!!

    but seriously — that performance, at best, was mediocre. she was awkward in her dancing, and as stated earlier, the ponytail thing has been done alrady. superbly. by MADONNA.
    bottom line: lame performance, gaga. lame. you let down all us little monsters.

  • http://seriousbodoh SERIOUSbodoh

    @yeah, said the line again:
    first of all gaga wrote one song for britney, only one song
    second of all britney has performed at the grammys at the start of her career, she chooses not to now
    thirdly gaga was lipsynching during her performance, the only one that was live was when she was talking “dont be a drag etc”
    her dancing was pretty bad and it was easy steps. it wasnt one of those hard core dancing
    SHE’S COPYING MADONNA

  • Whatever

    @anonymous:
    Are you kidding xtina sucks and all she does is annoying ohhhhh yeah shit at least gaga sings live you want to talk about a fake pop star mention stupid xtina

  • Paraflowers

    OKAY ALL YOU “OLD” GAYS NEED TO CHECK YOUR SELF!! HER PERFORMANCE RROOCCKKEEDD!! i’M SORRY THAT YOU CAN’T KEEP UP WITH THE TIMES! MADONNA HAD HER RUN (HELL EVEN SHE IS TRYING TO PREFORM WITH GAGA) YOU ALL SHOULD LET IT GO AND GET ON BOARD CAUSE BABY YOU WERE BORN THIS WAY!!

  • Whatever

    Ok people who are saying she’s a Madonna wannabe is seriously retarted. Madonna sucks Lady Gaga is way better. And at least she actually sings at concerts I mean all the fake pop stars you are mentioning xtina and Madonna don’t even sing at their own damn concerts talk about fake.

  • G

    Loved it, its a new GaGa and im loving all of her. I loved the gospel vibe she had going with the outfit and the organ. Its a beautifully written song, a beautiful voice, and a beautiful performance. Songs like this change the world.

  • Will

    @Nikky m:
    Like poop. she has no more money to buy her songs (:

  • common sense.

    one last thing-

    THIS WAS GAGA AT HER BEST LIVE TELEVISION PERFORMANCE:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=grKF_AcmYdc

    BRING BACK THE GOODS, MOTHER MONSTER!!!!! NO MORE OF THIS BORING DULL UNINSPIRED STUFF!

  • Will

    i dont care what people think or say and im pretty sure she doesnt either :] Great performance. you dont get her. You haters are just jealous she ruling you and the world and messing your head up that you have to hate. Overall she wins just deal with it go listen to britney and floptina. :] bye

  • Cesar Andalon

    I see that everyone is quiet obviously expecting your usual Gaga who will do odd things, and dress wierd.
    BUT!!!!!!!!
    SHE WENT A LITTLE MORE SIMPLE TO PROVE TO EVERYONE THAT SHE IS NOT JUST A MEDIA ENTERTAINER
    THE GIRL HAS AMAZING TALENT
    SHE CAN SING AMAZINGLY LIVE
    SHE CAN DANCE
    SHE IS A GREAT SONG WRITTER
    SHE IS A MUSICIAN WHO CAN PLAY
    show me all those pop stars who can do what Momma Monster can do
    Born this way is not a Madonna rip off
    Madonna’s song is about relationships and hetrosexual
    Born This Way is not!!! ITS THE A GAY ANTHEM!
    Standing for the gays, bisexuals, lesbians, transgenders.. etc!
    HATE GAGA ALL YOU WANT,
    SHE AINT LEAVING BABY!!!!

  • anthony

    I am not a fan of her at all, mostly because I dislike her personality and gimmicks so much that I can’t bear to listen to a full song, but with all the hype around her amazing new song and this arriving inside of an egg crap I expected a lot more. This was just a pop performance. It was also one of the least entertaining and most boring moments of the show.

  • yeah, said the line again

    yeah get over it people, time changes, even Madonna inspired by some other artist that too old for you to know.
    And britney NEVER did performing at Grammy all of her career ever. Check the list if you don’t believe me, from 1999 and up. Don’t be a fool by denying facts just because you’re a stan!
    Plus Xtina got standing ovationbecause she brought up a song from a legendary diva well, not because of herself, she’s been getting downhill since Bionic, just admit it. And getting old too, she’s forgetting her own country’s national anthem. How embarassing.

  • Dan Bailey

    Totally rocks, wtf to all those that say it sounds like Madonna, where???? As for less theatrics, I enjoyed the fact that I could watch listen to her without all the distractions of too much going on! She is moving in a new direction from her earlier stuff, I, for one, will be heading out and buying the cd when it comes out! Rock on Lady Gaga! A newly converted “little monster!”

  • wtf

    Just copy Madonna…pathetic.
    Shame on you Grammy’s
    BOOOO boring.
    Been there done it, 1990, Madonna, Blonde Ambition Tour

  • Cesar Andalon

    @G: songs like we are the world. Maybe all the people hating on Gaga will for ONCE listen to the song, read the lyrics, and feel ashamed. God made her this way to open our eyes to all the bullied and teased humans in the world!!!
    Lets learn to accept people!!!!!

  • Helen

    She’s in great shape!

  • joe

    say what you will, but gaga has immense talent. awesome singer, dancer, writes all of her own songs, comes up with all of her outfits/performances/everything she does by herself. she’s worked so much harder to get where she is than half of the people in the industry nowadays.

  • om

    wild and chaotic performance!

  • Marta

    “A girl’s got to use what she’s given and I’m not going to make a guy drool the way a Britney video does. So I take it to extremes. I don’t say I dress sexily on stage – what I do is so extreme. It’s meant to make guys think: ‘I don’t know if this is sexy or just weird.”
    — Lady Gaga

  • Marta

    “I used to walk down the street like I was a star. I want people to walk around delusional about how great they can be – and then to fight so hard for it that the lie becomes the truth.”
    — Lady Gaga

  • orchadeye

    totally reminds me of express yourself from madonna

  • Is it???

    Is it just me, but did this song sound a bit like Madonna’s Express Yourself at some points? I mean, not lyrically, but the beat and rhythm?

    I could be wrong, and I’m not hating on Gaga, I like some of her stuff, but…….I personally think I heard the Madonna beat to it.

  • Cesar Andalon

    Okay this whole reminds me of express yourself has got to stop.
    Different meanings in the song! Wayyyyyy different is everyone so critical that they look for ways for this exceptional woman to fail?

  • ICYNDICEY

    @Jason:
    LMFAO!!! How do you really feel?

  • Marta

    “Prejudice is a disease. And when they come for you, or refuse your worth, I will be ready for their stones. I belong to you. GAGAKLEIN.”
    — Lady Gaga

  • ICYNDICEY

    @Paraflowers:
    Honey I ain’t an “old” gay and I can see in plain sight, because I’m not brainwashed like you, that this horsey face is nothing but a Madonna retread and a very, very UGLY one at that.

    Let’s have some fun this song is s-h-i-t let’s beat Lady G with an ugly stick!

  • http://www.twitter.com/jackintheheart Jasman

    Honestly, all I can say is that I loved it! No matter what she does, more or less than her usual, she is an amazing entertainer with a lovely voice. The song was brilliant, especially the message, and the choreography was flawless.

    To those who are comparing her to Madonna, although I see and hear many similarities, know that Madonna is Gaga’s inspiration – hence why Gaga may put off as very Madonna-esque. Lady Gaga is the Madonna of this generation, bringing us similar music and messages the legendary Madonna brought to many in the 80s. Do you think many teens listen to Madonna today? Doubt it. Lady Gaga is what’s in.

    Also, to the people who are criticizing her ability to sing and dance: Your comments have no value! Lady Gaga is an international star and you’re probably just some old geezer struggling to make a living for yourself. Why don’t you reach the fame at which Gaga stands at and then come back to criticize her, otherwise keep your negative comments to yourself because quite frankly, you crying over the internet isn’t going to break her down.

    Thank you. <3
