Lady Gaga Gives Japan a Visually Lush Performance on SMAP x SMAP

We can’t recall the last time we saw an American pop mega-star play a piano in the palm of a gigantic, nicely-manicured hand. But that’s just what Lady Gaga pulled off last week on Japanese television variety show SMAP x SMAP. She performed three tunes from her best-selling album “Born This Way”, including the title track, “The Edge of Glory”, and a solo version of “You and I” sitting in the giant hand and accompanying herself on piano. All around a pretty cool TV performance, which featured some very nice choreography and some dark but stunning sets very heavily influenced by Japanese culture and architecture. Get on over to the link and check out the entire 10-minute performance for yourself. (YouTube – Lady Gaga on J-TV)
