“Bad Romance” (Live on X Factor) (Video)

    The X Factor seems to be slowly taking over the world, so it’s appropriate that the ubiquitous Lady Gaga was invited to appear on the show this past weekend (Dec. 5). Gaga chose to perform “Bad Romance” while dressed in a costume that looked like a cross between a bat and a devil.


    This performance was undertaken in a giant bathtub filled with Gaga’s writhing dancers, which is just about enough to detract from the fact that “Bad Romance” is a fairly rote piece of Europop. The best part of this clip comes around the 3:05 mark, when it transpires that Gaga has affixed a piano to the tub, although she perhaps wisely avoids flushing herself down the plughole at the end.
