Lady Gaga Belts Out Her New Single In A Secret (And Tiny) London Show

In a modern ecstasy

Lady Gaga gave a surprise and seemingly impromptu performance at London's Moth Club in the wee hours of Saturday morning, where she belted out her new single, "Perfect Illusion," to a small but enthralled audience. Although Gaga hasn't necessarily been away from the stage for a long time, it has been ages since the singer released her a single of her own (sans Tony Bennett), and it's great to see her back to doing her own material again.

Still going with the somewhat more demure look (at least by Lady Gaga standards) she's been rocking lately, the singer took the stage around 1:30am in a simple high ponytail, silver hot pants, and a grey crop top. And, despite the tiny stage, Gaga took command of the performance with the same energy and enthusiasm one might expect from an arena show—clearly she's in her wheelhouse and feels excited to be performing her new work. After "Perfect Illusion," Gaga wound down the crowd with a slower, keyboard version of "Bad Romance," and then danced around the stage to "Just Dance" and Ronson's "Uptown Funk." All in all, it was only about a 25-minute set, but certainly a sign of good things to come. Is a new album to follow? And a new tour shortly thereafter? We'll take whatever Gaga we can get, but Little Monsters are certainly ready for their mama to be back in full force again.
