THE SCREENING ROOM: Lady Gaga Performs "New York, New York," "Applause" and More on "SNL" (Video)
18 Nov 2013
Grammy Award winner Lady Gaga, who recently released her third studio album, "ARTPOP," hosted the Nov. 16 episode of "Saturday Night Live" on NBC.
Gaga opened the show with a jazz-inspired performance of her new single "Applause," which led into the Frank Sinatra classic "New York, New York." The singer also performed "Gypsy" and "Do What U Want," featuring R. Kelly.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
