  23. Jack May 26, 2011

    I can’t believe she was giving away her album for free and it still didn’t push as many copies as Taylor Swift or Lil Wayne.

  24. ilys May 26, 2011

    she slayed. She is the best

    damn 900K ??? lol i bought my copy. GREAT ALBUM. PERIOD

  25. can’tbelieveit May 26, 2011

    Good for her since she is the biggest gimmick in the industry beside Nicki Manji. She should have sold more since it was .99cent and she brought up so many for her fans.

  26. Spears May 26, 2011

    Flopga!!!!!!!!!!

    WOW 900K IS AMAZING. I’LL BUY MY COPY TOMORROW .

  37. CYNTHIA May 26, 2011

    Epic performance. This is what i call pure art. She made me feel the song. It was the best performance of the night. She really deserves her # 1 spot ! You go GAGA

  38. VA STAND UP!! May 26, 2011

    As annoying as I find her to be, I must admit that she is usually a good performer. She definitely knows how to entertain!

    This performance was kinda dry to me. I was just waiting for her to come down off that tower thingy, but I guess that was supposed to be the ‘edge’. She just didn’t do much at all. She sounded good though.

  39. gaga May 26, 2011

    EVERYTHING IS GREATER IN MONSTERLAND

  40. gaga May 26, 2011

    BEST PERFORMANCE OF AMERICAN IDOL HISTORY. PUT YOUR PAWS UP

  41. myg May 26, 2011

    Horrible ass song.. is this 86 dirty dancing soundtrack? Wtf. She changed her music too much for me.. she should have sold more then Taylor swift.. she under performed if u ask me.. everyone I know expected her to sell more than 900000..,,no suprise here.. still love her tho.. she should be doing old nsnyc numbers..

  42. ibrad May 26, 2011

    i just downloaded this video on my ipad. I can’ t stop watching it. Get those numbers queen gaga, i want those b****** to be pressed. Their faves will never sell 900k these days. maybe it will go diamond like the fame.

  43. lol May 26, 2011

    best performance of the night

  44. Ariana May 26, 2011

    @Are you serious!

  45. aisha May 26, 2011

  46. jesse lopez May 26, 2011

    that girl can sing! i don’t know about that rolling on the floor and booty rubbing stuff though.but good performance however I wont be buying the album because i feel i will be cursed or pulled into something i don’t believe in…oh and because I don’t like lady godiva..i mean lady godzilla oops lady blah mama sa mama sa mamakusar? um…. lady gay gay(gays buy my album,cuz i support you and expose you) oh i got lady gaga.lol it still was the best performance though

  48. rihannathebanana May 26, 2011

    eww..who played that..sax sounded horrible, the album version of the sax is the best part..he ruined it

  49. HER VOICE IS DRY & WEAK May 26, 2011

    HORRIBLE,

    VERY AMATEURISH PERFORMANCE…FORCED AS USUAL..STRUGGLING TO HIT HIGH NOTES…

    🙁

  50. THE EDGE OF FAILURE May 26, 2011

    …..one of Gaga’s worst performances…..ever!

  51. Beyonce Paws Up May 26, 2011

    ************mediocre*****************

  52. Not feeling it May 26, 2011

    Gaga sounds so screechy …….like a high- school prom performance !!! Next ? 🙂

  53. THE EDGE OF PITCHINESS May 26, 2011

    PITCHY….PITCHY….PITCHY !!!

  54. an epic fail May 26, 2011

    Lady GagGag on American Idol:-

    Hooky a bit
    Pose a bit
    Singing a bit
    (bridge)

    Dance a bit
    Throw in sharp voice a bit
    Hooky a bit

    (repeat to bridge)

    Without the “the sharp voice Aguilera style” bit you could be summarising the large majority of music with singing in, especially with a gay man as ‘best peformance’ ???

    Maybe it is the “talk in sharp voice” bit that gets her and tone deaf little Monsters described as mindbogglingly creative.

    Hmnnn….

  55. Mundane & Boring Caca May 26, 2011

    This isn’t music. This isn’t art. This is the edge of she has lost it.

    It doesn’t express anything original in any capacity by any stretch of the imagination. It’s like a Big Mac for music. It’s cheap, formulaic, bad for your soul and shoved down the throats of the general public because its marketable to morons & impressionable children with the IQ below than 70.

    Sad era with live in, right?

  56. Petra UK May 26, 2011

    i dont think Madonna’s fans have much to worry about with this performance. It is suck to the core…boring as fcuk and insipid like one of American Idol top 10 contestant performances…! 😀

  57. Queen Rihanna Barbadian Diva May 26, 2011

    2 out of 5 performance..just like her album. Next ?

  58. Rihstan May 26, 2011

    MADONNA COPYAT. Sit down gaga she just bores me nowadays to ott and its all for publicity and as sam said shes lost all her urban influences she had on the fame so her music doesnt appeal to me anymore except judas i hate to admit it but its catchy. And to think when she first came out i really liked her then she just started to go too far. She should bring back the Just Dance and Pokerface Gaga.

  59. The Perrylicious is taking over… May 26, 2011

    she’s is trying too much.
    Only GAYs out there impressed with this performance.
    WACK!

  60. RihannaNAVY May 26, 2011

    GO GAGA
    U OWNED THAT SHOW

  61. GangsterA May 26, 2011

    good peformance a bit boring though

  62. kj May 26, 2011

    wow….loved dat performance, no funny tricks, just her voice belting out that wondeful song. I love TEOG, been stuck in my head since da google chrome add.

    Big up, to Beyonce n Gaga…. the current Queens of pop.
    Britney shud take notes from these girls.

    South Africa loves LADY GAGA!!!!!

    as for American Idol, so narring. Hailey or Pia shud have won, not one trick pomy scotty or lauren.

    @ jack,,,,, get ur facts right before posting lies n making urself look stupid.
    The free cds at best buy, are not goin to be counted as sales, that was best buys own marketing ploy. Same with amazon, they brought Gaga’s album at da full price n dey themselves marked it down, since they trying to compete with itunes as a online music outlet.
    n Gaga was #1 in 22 countries with itunes stores n #2 in da netherlands itune stores,…where der was No free anything or low prices. In South Africa the album is R150, dats $25, but still selling like crazeeee. So no need to deny Gaga’s success.

    n comparing taylor n gaga, dats just damn silly. Taylor= country music, where teeny boopers actually go out n buy albums……gaga= pop, where in the 21st century singles sell not albums, and most people just dwonload illegally.

    So anywhere near 1 million for gaga in da 1st week is beyond huge!!!!!!!!.

  63. gus May 26, 2011

    she is so very nasty, her gotic 80’s look is bored but really good voice 3/5

  64. matt May 26, 2011

    love to watch the haters hating, get a life, go buy Born This Way, we welcome you from the dark side. This album is gonna SELLLLL!!!!!

  65. latin86 May 26, 2011

    Awesome performance!

  66. chibikuma May 26, 2011

    Is this a glimpse of Lady Gagas career in later years? Having s** on stage! She bores me to tears now and I used to be a fan!

  67. sab May 26, 2011

    Great performance and great album. I don’t see any album topping born this way this era.

  68. JohnVidal May 26, 2011

    I have to say it´s difficult to not become a fan of Gaga. She is definitely an ARTIST
    That´s why this was the best performance of the night. If u are a real artist, u don´t need perfection. I liked the outfit too this time.
    Plus the most important thing is she has delivered big way with the album. It´s a f****** great album with so many and different songs. You and I is epic.
    Born this way slayed all the rest of b****** this year musically except for Miss Adele
    Do I need to mention the sales? 900,000 are predicted. You untalented girls stans are so pressed cos talent is reigning in 2011.
    Seriously there are Katy, Britney fans on here talking s*** about a real artist???? lol

    PD: it must be difficult for Jlo seeing all that talent in front of her week after week knowing she hasn´t any

  69. Kaka May 26, 2011

    Beyonces performance was better…sit down gaga…
    …They already sending out Free test models of iPad 2..but ONLY if you live in United States..i got 2..sent 1 to my mom house & 1 to my dorm..lol http://ow.ly/51XEe

  70. Yo May 26, 2011

    I cosign to JohnVidal

  71. Hudson Morrigan May 26, 2011

    That performance was immense!!
    When she jumps off the cliff my jaw hit the floor!!

  72. Lady_whatever May 26, 2011

    Lady Caca is so annoying.

    I’m tired of the media shoving Lady Germ down my throat. I will never like her sh*t in a million years!

    Lady Caca is a stupid alien newbie wannabe fashion monster piece of huge crap. Words cannot describe how wack she is.

    Unfortunately, she will remain the most popular for a little while, just like f*cking McDonalds is the number 1 restaurant worldwide but we all know what a piece of epic SH*T that poisonous restaurant actually is!!!

    I’m a little mad at Christina Aguilera, because had she never put Lady Caca on the map by mentioning her name.. me and so many other people would have never even heard of this [email protected]** clown that is Lady Germ Caca Sh*t.

    What a MESS.

    Hopefully, Lady Caca will be retired in the next 5 to 7 years. Her singing is wack, boring, repetitive, redundant, derivative and she sounds like a man. She doesn’t even sound like a good male singer, she sounds like an annoying, trollish one.

    Lady caca is a f*cking McDonald burger : pure trash!!!!!! Unhealthy for the ears.

  73. Lady_whatever May 26, 2011

    I can’t believe so many people wasted their 99 cents on Born like A Sh*t. Lady Caca’s work isn’t even worth that much!!!!!!! Lady Germ should’ve sold her trashy work for only 5 cents MAX. That’s the real value of her wack sh*t.

    With 99 cents, people can do all kinds of things. Buy a pencil to write! Or an eraser! Or a small bad of almonds to eat! ETC!

  74. Lady_whatever May 26, 2011

    If Lady Caca had released one of Ciara, Aaron Carter or Hilarry Duff’s albums… those stupid albums would have been consider pure genius by Lady Garbage Germ Caca’s fans.

    The media would have praised those lame, ridiculous albums.

    Lady Caca is a [email protected]** troll and I will never comprehend why people are impressed by her sh*t.

    The music industry is very messy these days. Very horrific.

  75. Lame is Gaga middle name May 26, 2011

    I cant wait for the performance to end.

    There was no punch to this performance except the gay guy trying to r*** this ugly monster on stage.

    So lame..

  76. Lady_whatever May 26, 2011

    Lady Caca apparently released her debut album in APRIL 2008. Nobody knew or gave a flying f*ck about Lady Poop until December 2008 ~ January 2009!!!!!!!!!!

    That’s almost a year!!!!!

    It’s all Christina Aguilera’s fault. Whoever told Christina it was a good idea to do her 2008 VMA performance of Keeps getting Better the way she did it… it was probably an undercover Interscope person… someone’s from Lady Fraud’s team.

    Such a mess.

    Seriously, Lady Caca would otherwise not be here today ruining my ears. Ruining the radio and music shows with her boring piano. UGH.

  77. The Edge of Flaky May 26, 2011

    To think, the world once believed Britney Spears was the heir(ess) apparent to Madonna.

    Then along came Stefani Germanotta, an ugly Italian-American misfit with self-esteem issues and dreams of stardom. Since then she is well-known as a lame Madonna copycat.

    God bless us..

  78. Onyx May 26, 2011

    Lady GaGa is great, the edge of glory is beautiful

  79. The Edge of Flaky vs Scotty the Idol May 26, 2011

    BREAKING NEWS: Scotty McCreery – I Love You This Big tops US iTunes today pushing Gaga ’s The Edge of Failure to # 6

    😀 😀 😀

  80. WildChild May 26, 2011

    I truly enjoyed this performance. She seems a lot more comfortable performing this song than Judas. BTW is better than The Fame and The Fame Monster.

    @The J.Lo fan shut the f*** up 🙂

  81. YOURS TRULY, GODDESS GODGA May 26, 2011

    oH MY GOSH LITTLE MONSTER WE MADE bORN tHIS wAY THE NUMBER ONE ALBUM IN AMERICA!!!!!! (not that it takes alot since musical taste over there is s***) WE DID IT!!!!

  82. Babyrad May 26, 2011

    Pure art lady gaga is one of the only amazing artists left her and Adele and a few others. her performance was better than everyone’s on American idol scotty and laurenn suck the only good one was pia but of course America is retarded. just because lady gaga didn’t get off the rock doesn’t mean anything maybe she was too fixed on actually singing and dancing and not using auto tune like every artist out born this way album is where she really expressed her emotions and every song is unique and not the same and expresses different topics that’s actually going on instead of singing about s&m. everything stefani does is art she made it possible for people to believe in them selves again and actually bring good music creativity back she doesn’t lip sync and actually dances so every one can get on with there lives and stop hating on the queen of pop.

  83. HUDSON MORRIGAN May 26, 2011

    LMAO @ you b****** mad as hell your faves are being slaughtered by Gaga!
    Born this way is UNSTOPPABLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

  84. WildChild May 26, 2011

    @Hudson Preach!!!

  85. ..and Haterz win again ! May 26, 2011

    Gaga= when you ape a real s*** u can dress like a queen Madonna but u’ll always remain a real s***!!!

  86. bam bam May 26, 2011

    WOW GaGa Children watch this show…

  87. Beyonce slays and keep slaying leave your favorite to pout May 26, 2011

    Gaga’s performance IS getting worse and worse month by month 🙁

  88. Gaga is a Madonna Thief May 26, 2011

    enough said!

  89. Force This Way May 26, 2011

    Beyonce’s performance was effortlessly entertaining compared to Gaga @ Forced!

  90. Queen of 99cents album named Lady Gaga May 26, 2011

    What a trying hard MESS performance.

    Hopefully, Lady Caca will be retired after the next album. Her singing is wacky, boring, repetitive, redundant, derivative and she sounds like pitchy . She doesn’t even sound like a legend, she sounds like an annoying top 30 America Got Talents.

    Lady Floga…. is a f*cking McDonald burger artist : pure trash no substance!!!!!! Unhealthy for the ears and your soul. Just commercialism at its best.

  91. Musicfan May 26, 2011

    I loved this. She’s doing her thing! Along with Beyonce.

    Right now, I’d say the reigning queens are Beyonce and Gaga. Bey just needs to get some of her singles and make them hits. I do like 1 + 1. It’s a great song and can become big with some good promotion. Big ups to these two. Britney, Katy, Kesha, etc, should take notes.

  92. Lady Germ May 27, 2011

    I am so over Lady Germ. She can sell 5 million copies of her lame album, I will not care. Let the whole world be a fan of Lady Germ.

    I will NEVER be one of those fans.

    Lady Germ is such a monstrous clown. Next time someone brings her up in any topic, I will simply roll my eyes and move on and not discuss this wack newbie. At this point, I am epically bored with her sh*t.

    Media, keep attempting to shove Lady Germ down my throat. You will NEVER succeed in a million years. Lady Caca is s piece of lame newbie redundant mediocre sh*t.

    The end.

  93. jesse lopez May 27, 2011

    @johnvidal stop with the lies you know j.lo has talent,even if her vocals aren’t up with gaga’s she sure as hell will perform her on then off the edge of glory with her dancing and stage presence.

    @wildchild sorry I know why you’re mad but don’t take it out on me,I can’t keep up with such a bizarre name or person.excuse me for making a joke of a joke…who names themselves after baby words?

  94. VFB May 28, 2011

    LADY GAGA IS SKATING BY ON HER IMAGE & STAGE APPEARANCE, SHE MARKET HERSELF VERY WELL! HOWEVER, HER CD SUCKS!!!!!

  95. tina June 8, 2011

    I can’t stop watching this performance! I’ts freakin awesome! I love her.
