The Mother Monster commands the crowd to raise their paws up during 'Bad Romance', acknowledges the parental presence in 'You and I', and gets playful when playing her own spin of 'White Christmas'.
Lady GaGa spread holiday spirit on Saturday night, December 3 when headlining KIIS FM's Jingle Ball. "I miss being on tour so much," the Mother Monster greeted her screaming fans gathering inside Nokia Theater in Los Angeles, California. "I miss my little monsters."
The "Born This Way" hitmaker went all out that night. She underwent various flashy costume changes, belted out her powerful voice, delivered high-energy routine, pranced around the elaborate stage-set, and equipped herself with a festive-themed guitar in a form of Christmas tree.
"Are there a lot of little monsters here tonight?" the New Yorker addressed the crowd. "If you're not, raise your hand so you could get attacked by a little monster nearby." She later commanded the concertgoers to raise their paws up when she charged into "Bad Romance".
At one point, GaGa acknowledged the parents who came with their family, "(It may be a) little uncomfortable 'cause you want to let loose, 'cause your favorite artists are here tonight." In honor of the parental presence, she delivered "You and I" which she called a family tune.
Furthermore embracing the holiday, GaGa covered "White Christmas". She stated, "I always sound funny singing Christmas, so I'm changing it to Kissmas." She added, "Always remember I was the one who told you the truth about Christmas. To everyone who's listening, Santa Claus is real."
When singing "Born This Way", GaGa additionally said, "Christmas is all about Jesus Christ, you know," before pausing to spell the capital H-I-M. She continued making religious references in "Judas" by noting that "if there weren't a Judas, there wouldn't be a Jesus Christ."
The other stars performing at the event included Big Time Rush, Gym Class Heroes, David Guetta, Taio Cruz and Karmin. Also in attendance were Willow Smith, Sean Paul, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Stephanie Pratt, Alexa Vega, Ryan Seacrest and Carrie Ann Inaba.
