Lady GaGa: "Poker Face" (Live on American Idol) (Video)

Lady GaGa bashing has become something of a sport (well, like baseball) among us writers here at Prefix, and I'm not about to change that--the New York performer appeared on American Idol last night to perform "Poker Face," which apparently isn't about fat dudes playing poker (which would be way cooler). GaGa starts her performance playing at a clear piano that looks like it was rented out from a strip club, and then proceeds to amp up the performance by singing off key and out of breath as she "dances" vigorously. I can generally tell a pop star's appeal (like Katy Perry's faux-lesbianism making her a star), but apart from get-ups that look like they were stolen off of dead drag queens, I really can't place what's so damn interesting about this Lady GaGa character. Did everyone in America suddenly decide drag queens are the arbiters of style? Because they're probably stoked right now. [ Idolator

I agree. Not entertaining at all.

I'm going to be the dissenting voice here and say that I love Lady GaGa. And that performance was fantastic. It's just wonderfully odd. What on earth is going on at the start with the violin players, spazzy dancers and borderline obscene lyrics? We need more pop stars like Lady GaGa.

i'd rather see this than another britney karaoke show

I don't care about her at all, but I will say this is much more interesting than Britney's karaoke, Perry's stiff dancing, or even Lily Allen's not knowing how to play an instrument. So I generally get her appeal. And haven't drag queens been arbiters of style for years now??

I'm going to stumble out of the closet, and admit that I kind of love Lady Gaga. I mean, she's vacuous, absurd, and a whole lot of other things, but the fact that she conducts herself without any apparent knowledge of those things is really intriguing to me. Also, that first back-up dancer you see, the one who's spinning like a top? He is in the last stages of Gaga's Disease; a neurodegenerative disease that attacks after you hear "Beautiful, Dirty, Rich" for the tenth time.

America needs something interesting and weird and fun right now. Lady GAGA is awesome, she brought down the house at the house of blues here in Chicago.
I have never seen a crowd of people go so crazy.
It was AMAZING!!
Clearly a lot of people agree with me..her first two singles are #1 hit and her third single is already at # 7.
hate all you want, but you can't take that away!
Go GAGA!!!

Oh I like her!!!! BUT I'm afraid others were already doing this before so she didn't invent this style of performance. Lots of people do it and some have better songs

lookup Roisin Murphy
Peaches
Chiki

i had actually never really listened to Pokerface or GaGa before this performance. and at first, i thought it was just really weird, but then she sped it up and i ended up loving it. now, ive started listening to some more of her music, and i absolutlely love everything about it. i really love her style. its unique and different. i think shes amazing!

and wayyyyyyyy damn better than britney.

lady gagas perfomance was just fantastic. she brought the house down. my opinion is that if she were to do somthin els with her hair it could have been better but other than that it was so cool. i am a huge fan of lady gaga x.o.x.o.x.o.x.o.x love kaitlyn.......

I think people will always look for someone to judge and single out as "different" or "weird". Maybe im the only one who is tired of American Idol producing the same plain one hit wonder "artists". That show makes me want to vomit. I'm blown away by Gaga who writes all of her own songs and material for other artists. How many other pop artists do that?...Dont worry i'll wait. I've been to one of her concerts and I was thrilled that she actually puts on a show worth paying for. Concerts shouldnt consist of the artist standing on stage and singing, thats what the CD was for. Gaga knows that pop needed something fresh and different and relevent. I love that she is who she is and I hope she doesn't change a thing.

she has a unique style. its just her. sure she may get some influences from other people but she is no copy cat and is a damn good singer and song writer and i think anyone who trys to hate on someone for being unique is just jealous. "shake those haters off" ..sit on that.

I like the Beat from the back ground of Lady GaGa's songs _But the Lyrics are in Bad taste, thats why so many TEENS get pregnant the Lyrics Influence nothing but SEX! lady GaGa's just one of them out there! And the video on American Idol was in very BAD taste! MARY the MOTHER of JESUS would of ABSOLUTELY have NO part of that Video! JESUS is coming SOON ! and he's going to Wash Out All the Sinful Trash thats on this Earth! GOD will not make none of us Love him thats why we have freedom of Choice ,Judgement will come to all of us sooner then we think! P.S. And I'm Not a Pastor I'm a Girl that was asked for my comment and there it is ! I Hope that this gets posted so it can be read!...The Truth is WHAT some people don't Like to Hear! GOD BLESS You ALL:))))!!! HE LOVES YOU !!! Love Him Back before its to LATE!
