Lady Gaga took the stage of the Grammy Awards to give audiences an emotional performance — and even snuck in a reference to the Time’s Up movement.
Performing her songs “Joanne” and “Million Reasons” from her Grammy-nominated album “Joanne,” Gaga accompanied herself on a white grand piano as she serenaded the audience. Draped on the piano were two massive angel wings, adding to the heavenly vibe as “Joanne” as she dedicated the performance, and her album, to her dearly departed aunt, Joanne Stefani Germanotta who passed away after battling lupus.
During a moment of quiet in her song “Million Reasons,” Gaga said “time’s up,” a reference to the movement against sexual harassment.
Many fans took to Twitter to show their love for the performance.
the determination in lady gaga’s eyes as she’s singing this. her energy is unmatched.
Lady Gaga is so talented. A shame that people slept on Joanne, which was a solid album.
Lady Gaga just broke my heart. This is such a good show.
I LOVE when @ladygaga reminds everyone that she is a phenomenal natural talent and easily held her own on stage with Elton John so. #GRAMMYs
