There was nothing wrong with her performance, it wasn't her most original or outrageous but who gives a shit? She was channeling Blond Ambition hardcore... but how many other artists have gone out there and paid tribute to their idols in a similar way? How many MJ wannabees have we seen at award shows over the years?

Her performance last year was better, but this was good too.

It's only acceptable when certain people do it. Obviously.

I just wish it was more epic of a performance just cause she's so damn good at the epic performances.

I think the only way to keep up the mystery was to do something completely toned down which is different for her.
Honestly, I didn't think the song needed anything huge.
The choreography was very interesting.
Overall very gender neutral which definitely reinforces BTW's message.
Her vocals were great.

It's funny how people complain when she goes overboard on performances but then she does something (semi)normal and everyone says it's too boring.

I just wish she was prancing around naked like she usually does.

I doubt any one person believes both those things at once.
"Hold It Against Me" is pretty awesome I must say.

as a neutral fan or whatever, this song is absolutely awful. Massive step back.
I agree with this. song is super boring and unoriginal.

I just watched this for the first time since '09. Just so amazing. Still waiting for another pop star to top this performance. Still waiting for Gaga herself to top it, too.

Im actually dissapointed at all the gaga fans who were wanting more from gaga with this performance.
For this generation, gaga has been doing something new, all the time. She started wearing crazy outfits and the other artists started to follow suit ect.
Every year gaga has done an astounding, crazy elaborate performance. Her performance of paparazzi from the VMAs will always be remembered, her duet with elton john was just awesome, so this year people would expect her to top herself?
But I really really liked, and preferred this almost "stripped-down" gaga. All the other performers were going big, trying to top eachother, and gaga came out with singing and dancing, and that's all. Her clothes were very simple and her vocals were amazing.

I think she did something unexpected, just like she always has. Everyone was expecting something outrageous because its gaga, and she decided to take a different route.

I thought her performance was the best of the night.

This is literally what caught me off guard and made me, well, speechless and actually like "wow, who is this girl??" before this I just thought she was another dumb popstar. This will always be that iconic performance that hit me like a ton of bricks right to the face. Amazing. Will never be topped.
