Watch: Lady GaGa Rocks Kennedy Center Honors / Earns Ovation From Obama’s

lady-gaga-kennedy-center-honors-thatgrapejuice

Pop queen Lady GaGa was one of the select names tapped to perform at the Kennedy Center Honors earlier this month. The special, which aired last night, saw Mother Monster perform ‘If I Ever Lose My Faith In You’ in tribute of one of this year’s recipients Sting.

Th superstar’s rousing rendition of the track earned rapturous applause from the man she was singing it for, as well as President and First Lady Obama.

Watch the 28-year-old shine bright below…

Bravo!

Granted the growling did grate at points, GaGa turned in an otherwise great performance.

    Jazz, Dance Pop, EDM, R&B, Hip Hop, Classical… Lady Gaga can do all those genres. She can sing, dance & perform really well. She has the talent to back everything up! Go Gaga.

    I know should not say this but I am. Granted this performance was really good no doubt about it, however, why is it that when Christina rips, roars and growls people say she is straining or over doing it or she can’t sing; but Gaga and said others do it its praised…why?

      Because Xtincta IS straining and it ruins the brightness of her tone. GaGa doesn’t do as much runs but she rarely strains.

    I do not care for Lady GaGa’s music (nor that of Sting’s) but I must say that the former is indeed one of the most talented Pop stars out today. She’s a solid live singer, an above average dancer and is very involved in the creative process of her music. I was really surprised by her vocal ability here. Kudos.

    Besides beyonce and pink, lady gaga is the only other pop star who can genuinely SANG and put on a great live show with dancing and imagery etc. She may not be as popular this time around but her raw talent puts 99% of these pop acts (notice how I didn’t say artists) to shame! Say what you want but the proof is in the talent: EDM, jazz, r&b, rock, alternative, soft rock- she can literally do it all

    STFU with your “pop queen” bs Sam when it comes to those your bottom as$ fan girls over like GaGa and Janet. Nobody says Pop King Timberlake, Usher or Bieber….we all know that only belongs to MJ. Just because you shade Madonna (as well as Mariah and RiRi) left and right doesn’t mean she shares her title with anyone. I get ya’ll love your favs but get real. They’ll never top what Madonna did and are walking down the road she paved for them. GaGa is no Pop queen and never will snatch that from Madge. Respect the legends we still have esp ones that have kept it together and still slay

    Every time I see Gaga I want to throw a rock at her. I don’t understand how anybody can call themselves a fan of this ridiculous freak show. If she were actually talented, she wouldn’t need to be so abstract. The truth is that she’s not, which is why she has to try and market weirdness to try and deflect from it.

Dats why she crashed and burn as quick as she did people got tired of the “art”. Whitney, Mariah, Adele, Celene, Christina, Patti, Barabra, Aretha, Alicia and the like don’t need nothing but a mic on stage to kill it. I feel wit gaga it’s too late.

      Christina is the true meaning of a try hard. She sounds good sometimes but she sings waaaaay to our of her range, she screams entirely too much, she sings painfully out of her throat and misses many, many, many, many notes. She’s cool but there are a bagillion and 5 singers who will sing her under the table. Shes a faux soul singer- no tee, no shade.
