Lady Gaga Opens VMAs with ‘Applause’

Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga opened the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards with a rip-roaring set. Mother Monster performed her new ARTPOP single “Applause” for the first time at Sunday’s show.

She changed clothes and wigs multiple times—from a nun’s white outfit to a seashell bikini—while recreating looks from the artsy music video.

See Gaga’s show-stopping set below.

    Such an amazing performance. Even if you don’t like her, you have to admit she has talent. Not only can she sing, she can dance and write her own music! Can’t wait to hear more from ARTPOP!

    She’s purely entertaining. I’m impressed. This bitch switched wigs and clothes like 3 times and her Ass did look real fine! I think the song is huge grower.

    I thought the peformance seemed rushed, but she said this was going to be her best performance ever. She’s had better performance in concert. At least it was better than Miley though.
