The wait is finally over! After careful consideration, we have chosen our top five Lady Gaga awards show performances of all time.
The top five contain some of Gaga’s most incredible, iconic, and controversial moments. (If you missed the first part of the countdown, you can find it here.) Some of our choices will seem obvious, but others will surprise you.
We chose not to rank these performances according entertainment factor alone. Rather, we decided to make Gaga’s message and mission as a pop revolutionary our primary factor in ranking her performances. Remember, Lady Gaga is as much an avant-garde performance artist with a social conscience as she is a commercial pop singer and, in the spirit of Gagaism, we wanted to create a countdown that was true to Gaga’s values and mission as an artist.
With these things in mind, let’s get on with the countdown!
