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

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.

    Lady Gaga is a fun one to watch I guess but Christina Aguilera nailed it…she was amaaazing! But let’s not talk about her in here cause they are so different.. they could not have been any more different but Gaga stans you know how it feels now, right? Your fave being compared to another female artist? Madonna. So stop hating on Christina and others, it’s ok if gaga is your number one and you don’t have to like other female artists but just shut up kids. Karma is, and will be a bitch.

    Bitch can’t dance for shit. She has NO rhythm AT ALL!!!

    @WANNABE:

    Ok, I’m repeating this once. MADONNA’S CAREER IS DEAD. It’s over. She was a once radiant pop star of the 80s and now is nothing more than a face on the red carpet to reassure us all that she’s in good health and not dead.

    Don’t hate on GAGA just because her career is flourishing. And comparing Madonna and Lady GaGa is a lot like comparing N’Sync to The Back Street Boys, or Britney to Christina, or Destiny’s Child to TLC, or Jay-Z to PDiddy, or Beyonce to Rhianna. They’re dangerously similar but just different enough to be considered their own force in the music industry. I’m not sure why Madonna fans are so threatened but it’s quite comical.

    And I AM SICK of hearing the comparison of Born This Way & Express Yourself. The only similarity in the two songs is the chord progression, but other than that I’ve listened to Express Yourself many-a-time and can garantee you that they are HARDLY similar. You have to remember that this is the MUSIC industry. There’s always possibility that something may end up sounding like something else, it’s just the way it is. And this music is overseen by major recording companies who have a far better extensive knowledge of music than any of us do, and I’m sure if they even sense the slightest bit of “copyright” infringment the song wouldn’t be made otherwise they’d be faced with a lawsuit.

    Express Yourself and Born This Way are two entirely different songs. Madonna promotes being a whore in her song while Lady GaGa talks about how you’re beautiful the way you were born (which for some of you, clearly means without a brain.) I personally just think Madonna fans are being self conscious little skanks that are upset that the “freak” is pumping out more meaningful music than their beloved pop queen ever did in all 100 years of her dead career.

    Sit & Spin sweetheart. Sit & SPINNNNNNNNNN.

    I’m glad the little monster a stepping up to defend Gaga against Madonnas sad fans. Gaga song live on the Grammys. Gaga has a great voice. The performance was amazing. She proved you can dance and sing live. I want to say to the little monsters don’t pay attention to the Madonna and Britney Fans because all it boils down to is they are jeolous of Gaga. If Gaga was no huge threat, they would not take the time to write the nasty, untrue comment. Gaga is a way better singer and dancer than Madonna and thats killing them to see the truth. I was a Madonna fan. I know. Gaga is truly a better artist and Madonna fans are crapping in their pants. I never seen Madonna hard-core fans loose their minds over another female artist. That just shows the power of Gaga. I loved how Gaga thanked Whitney Houston for Born this Way. That was the ultimate FU Madonna and her sad fans. Gaga is smart. She’s slowly but surely distancing herself from Madonna and this Gaga is ripping off Madonna will start to get very old. Young people don’t care. Gaga album is breaking records and will continue to. Just get use to it!!!!!!!

    I’m glad the little monsters are stepping up to defend Gaga.

    Lady Gaga’s Grammy costume and hair extension are basically Madonna Blond Ambition Tour cone bra, but in black….

    I can also imagine Gaga calling Madonna now

    Lady Gaga: “Madonna, which look of yours should I use THIS time… for the Grammys? You know for the Little Monsters.

    Madonna: “Hmmmm That’s a good one, I think you already copied most of them… Wait! What about my Blond Ambition Tour cone bra costume, I looked fierce in that!”

    Lady Gaga “Yes you did Madonna! Yes you did.”

    Madonna: “But change it up a little bit this time Gaga. Don’t make it to obvious.

    Lady Gaga: “Oops I did it again.”

    Madonna: “Gaga…”

    Madonna: “What about black instead of gold?”

    Lady Gaga: “Perfect!”

    okay we get ur point…you’re scaring me with the caps lock

    I think some people are used to see gaga doing fantastic things and then they talk bad thing about her. And now, when she does something alittle bit more “simple” (cause her performance wasnt simple), they talk bad things about her again. I just dont understand some people! I think Gaga is amazing! she is not only a singer, or a songwriter or a popstar! she is influence and culture!

  • theoneandonly

    Gaga made gag gag

  • Texas

    Why are they doing Texas Rangers “The Claw” at the end?

  • Digusting!!

    Can this quack ever just sing a song. An egg. Seriously she came to the awards show in an egg. I have never liked her and I really do not understand her appeal. I prefer real musicians who do not have to go though theatrics just to get people’s attention. You might call it art, I call it CRAP!

  • Donn wilson

    lady Gaga’s performance on the Grammy’s is by far the best i have seen in a long time. refreshing and she is a true artist. I love the message in this song. lady gaga will be around for a long time. move over Madonna gaga is here.

  • Hanna

    i like her, but… WHY SHE TRY SO HARD TO LOOK UGLY?,
    i mean, yes she is original, but really looks like a freak

  • Marcelo P.

    Aloka. hahahah

  • chema711

    Badass Gaga, who in the pop world isn’t influenced by Madonna, Bowie, Grace Jones, NYC clubkids or whatever…
    People don’t like to give credit to creative artists that take risks and aren’t scared if people are gonna like it or not…
    She has a badass body and a badass voice, the rest is just performance art…
    Not my fav song of hers but I’m sure the album will have some surprises…

  • I Do Makeup for $$$

    SHES SUCKS AND IS AN AMALGAM OF WHAT EVERYONE ELSE HAS ALREADY DONE.
    GO AWAY “GAGA” – YOU ARE NOT A LEGEND. YOU SUCK

  • http://@erikkaJay Erikka Jay

    sooo overrr itttt…..

  • emy

    gaga sucks go Britney u are the best

  • Just sing

    She needs to lose the name lady gaga – go back to her regular name and write songs like she CAN DO and sing them like she CAN do – and let the world focus on her and her talent – not the SHOW… the SONG is getting lost. Songs like speechless. She doesn’t need fireworks and all the distractions around her. She needs to watch famous women like janis joplin who did it all w/their voice and a microphone. she could do the same. Course who am I to talk, she’s laughing all the way to the bank in her egg.

  • Jules

    Does she think we’re stupid? She just said that she thinks she has one of the best voices in the industry & now she wants to act modest and say she wasn’t secure enough with herself to think she could sing Born this way so she imagined Whitney Houston singing it. Don’t her fans realize what a hypocrite she is?

  • AlineF

    So-so.

  • Soul Singer

    Work it Gaga!!!!

  • Sam

    lol Ur sad… so is Madonna so I guess it makes sense xoxox

  • cala

    Probably her best live perfomance ever, IMO. Hard to find other current artists who can sing with those powerful on -pitch vocals and dance like that. And those full-voice high notes she belted during the bridge and at the end gave me chills. Simple, artistic, beautiful, and flawlessly executed. The best of the evening, without a doubt!

  • GAGALOVER

    everyone shut up, she is the best there is out there. GaGa did not copy Madonna, she has her own talent. You try going up there at the grammys and sing while dancing. she did a great job
    GO GAGA

  • Collin

    The performance wasn’t boring. She just didn’t want it to be too distracting. She probably actually wanted people to listen to the song and not pay attention to her outfit or actions.

  • Jonathan

    GaGa is a very talented girl! It’s pretty obvious you haven’t seen this girl belt out a tune, she is better than most of what you people call talent now in days she can actually sing her ass of and she always sings live!! so don’t hate on GaGa cause you bitches wish you can be her!! Born This Way was #1 in 23 countries and the fastest downloaded song in history so i don’t think your negative comments are effecting her on bit!

  • nohate

    This song is the most amazing song.
    You all should take a step back and listen to it by the young girl who plays the piano.
    Gaga didn’t stop the entire performance! She is amazing, there were many moments when she could have taken a break, and didn’t, she just came back with more power. And it makes this song so incredible.
    I never truly appreciated her until this song.
