Talented lady is talented.
It turns out that underneath all the costumes and special effects, Lady Gaga is just a very talented performer who can sing good. Which we already knew, but there's still something a little exciting and incongruous about imagining her in the role of Maria, instead of, say Carrie Underwood (sorry, Carrie Underwood! We know, you thought that was behind you).
In honor of the 50th anniversary of The Sound of Music, Gaga sang a medley of "The Sound of Music," "My Favorite Things," "Edelweiss" and "Climb Ev'ry Mountain." It was a stirring performance, and most importantly, no one went home with the song "Paparazzi" stuck in their head.
