Barefoot and guitar in hand, Lady Gaga brought down the house Sunday night (Nov. 20) at the 44th annual American Music Awards in Los Angeles as she performed her latest single “Million Reasons.”

The song reached No. 1 on the Billboard + Twitter Trending 140 real-time chart at 7 p.m. ET and remained the top song overnight and into the morning for 11 hours straight. The Billboard + Twitter Trending 140 chart measures the real-time acceleration of conversation around artists and their music on Twitter.

Gaga’s performance was unlike what we’ve seen from the singer as of late. Instead of an over-the-top performance like we saw during her Dive Bar Tour, her performance Sunday night subtly showcased her vocal prowess.

“Million Reasons” is the second and latest single off Lady Gaga’s album Joanne, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 dated Nov. 12. The song is bubbling under the threshold of the Pop Songs airplay chart dated Dec. 3, reflecting the tracking week ending Nov. 20.
