Watch Lady Gaga Perform “ARTPOP” On ‘Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’

She's Back
Lady Gaga unveiled a rare live performance of ARTPOP‘s title track for the second episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon Tuesday (February 19). The performance marked Gaga’s return to the spotlight after a couple months spent opening up about betrayal and depression, and working on more ARTPOP material.

No surprise, it was like she never left. Mother Monster began on a modern grand piano for a quiet rendition of the first verse. Then that trance beat kicks in and by the end she was down on the stage doing her faraway-look art freakout dance. I don’t know about you, but the live take gave me a new appreciation for the track.

Check it out up top.

    This is one of GaGa’s live performances in a while. I’m thinking/hoping that this means she has had some rest and is ready to move ahead with more ARTPOP…(Please!)
