As pre-order sales for ‘ARTPOP’ continue to soar with every passing hour, tonight saw Pop icon Lady GaGa build even more momentum for the release when she arrived on the ‘X Factor UK’!
It was there, armed with impeccable live vocals and her ever impressive charisma, that she performed her brand new singles ‘Do What U Want‘ and ‘Venus’.
How did the Grammy winning chart topper fare?

As ever, a solid performance from Mother Monster – one where, between the theatrics, she smartly re-asserted her ability as a vocalist.
If there’s any gripe, it’s that she didn’t incorporate ‘Applause’ into the medley. It’s industry 101 that new songs are a tough sell to an audience that do know them, hence weaving in something acutely familiar (‘Applause’ was a UK top ten) wouldn’t have gone amiss.
Still, we doubt many will complain. The performance, albeit messy in places, was hot and offered the first live takes on two blazing tracks.
We’re oh so ready for ‘ARTPOP’s November 11th release. Are you?
