As summer rain drizzled down on her and her little monsters, Gaga crooned a jazzy rendition of the classic George Gershwin song “Someone to Watch Over Me” and segued into “Bad Romance.” Later, Gaga performed her new song, a piano-driven ballad called “You and I,” plus two more from “The Fame Monster,” “Alejandro” and “Teeth.” The pop star has been in New York all week to play a three-night stand at Madison Square Garden as part of her Monster Ball tour.
