SNL first time host, Lady Gaga, shows she can play almost any role and get applause! Gaga's "Do What U Want" was sooo 70s, channeling the look and sound of Donna Summer or Vikki Sue Robinson. Her second performance of "Gypsy" seemed to us like an ode to Elton John's "Love Lies Bleeding" that could have fit perfectly on Meat Loaf's Bat Out of Hell album. As always each Gaga performance was larger than life in production and story.
And the skit where Gaga plays her 70-year old self without the fame was reminiscent of a skit on the Cher show with Cher, Elton John and Bette Midler...remember this flash from the past?!
