Lady Gaga has performed on some pretty massive stages over the past year — from the 2017 Super Bowl halftime show in February to headlining Coachella in April and kicking off her Joanne World Tour in August — so it’s only fitting that she cap her 2017-18 with the 60th annual Grammy Awards.
Gaga hit the stage following a fire-and-drum-filled opening spectacle from Kendrick Lamar to tone things down at the piano.
“This is for my father’s late sister Joanne,” Gaga said from her piano bench, before launching into her new version of the title track from her 2016 album Joanne. “This is for love and compassion, even when you can’t understand.”
She also performed “Million Reasons” at a lit-up white grand piano draped in massive angel wings, with Joanne producer Mark Ronson on guitar. Gaga showed off her powerful pipes on both songs, infusing emotion into every note.
