Lady Gaga

I'm sorry, is Lady Gaga singing? I'm too busy staring at her chest/crotch/enormous green glittery shoulder pads to notice. Actually, judging by her previous performances (see: the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards act in which she bled to death and hanged herself in one song, "Paparazzi"), her 52nd Grammy Awards opener seems fairly tame. But just when I begin to write her off as nothing but show, out comes Elton John to combine her "Speechless" and his "Your Song" in one sweeping act of dueling-piano-ballad glory.
