Lady Gaga Serenades Oprah With “Born This Way” And “You And I”

While sitting at a keyboard perched on a giant golden high heel stand designed by her sister Natalie, Lady Gaga belted out a slowed-down version of her smash “Born This Way” on the Oprah Winfrey Show today before launching into “You And I,” a track from her upcoming album. (You may have caught American Idol contestant Haley Reinhart crooning the rock ballad last night). We admit, we got a little misty when Gaga began serenading Oprah, who only has 14 more shows to go before her long-running daytime show leaves the air. Watch below! After Gaga’s performance, she stepped down from her giant piano stool and spoke with O.

“I appreciate that we’ve all had someone like Oprah — such a strong woman — to lead us for so long, who continues to lead us,” the “Judas” singer gushed as the audience cheered. “Thank you for inspiring me and thank you for inspiring the world.”

But by far, one of the highlights of Gaga’s appearance was the facial expressions of both Oprah and Johnny Depp, who watched from the audience while Mother Monster tore through “You And I.”

Note: this is a much more elaborate version of “You And I” than the one Gaga has been performing at her Monster Ball shows for the past year. What did you think of it?
