Lady Gaga steals the show with elaborate two-hour set.
It’s safe to say that this weekend’s first-ever iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas delivered the goods. The two-day festival featured an impressive lineup of top-tier artists such as Alicia Keys, Jennifer Lopez, Jay-Z, and Coldplay. Virtually every act gave a strong performance, but when Lady Gaga hit the stage as the last headlining artist of the festival, she made it abundantly clear once again that she can and will steal the show every single time.
Gaga turned her scheduled 45-minute set into a two-hour extravaganza. She created a full concert, complete with brand new costumes, set pieces and props such as a motorcycle piano that is almost certain to become as iconic as her flaming piano from the Monster Ball.
Early on in the set, Gaga gave a heart-wrenching performance of ‘Hair,’ which she dedicated to Jamey Rodemeyer, a 14-year-old high school freshman who committed suicide last week after being bullied relentlessly over his sexuality. It was enough to move almost anyone to tears. Later, Sting joined Gaga on the stage for two incredible duets.
The entire show was streamed live at iHeartRadio.com. It is no longer available for viewing on the official website, but we’ve pieced together a playlist of her entire concert using the best quality YouTube videos available for each song. Special thanks to luixiw, itsjoeyworld, and MrSlduf for uploading the videos!
These will likely be taken down by YouTube, but in the meantime, enjoy!
