Lady Gaga was nominated for half a dozen prizes at Sunday night’s (February 13) 53rd Grammy Awards, and the envelope-pushing pop star walked away with three victories. Her incredible single “Bad Romance” scored two wins (for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance and Best Short Form Music Video) while her album The Fame Monster picked up the gold for Best Pop Vocal Album.
But in between receiving awards, Gaga kept busy. After making the evening’s biggest red carpet entrance (which saw her carried into the Staples Center in an egg-shaped vessel that was carried by a series of scantily-clad servants), Gaga took the stage during the show’s first hour to deliver an electric version of her just-released new single “Born This Way.” Surrounded by dancers, Gaga found the song’s heavy groove and even added a pipe organ solo for good measure.
While she was in the audience, there always seemed to be a flurry of activity surrounding her. In between meeting Usher and Justin Bieber (who gave her a hug following her victory for Best Pop Vocal Album), she managed to squeeze in a costume change and even found time to bond with Willow Smith.
Though she came up short on three awards (most notably losing Album of the Year to Arcade Fire), Lady Gaga certainly walked away from the Grammy Awards a winner. And with Born This Way on the horizon, those victories will keep on coming.
