On the other hand we did get to hear Lady Gaga, in the most ghastly
dress I've ever seen, singing something or other.
Oh please, I've seen hundreds of worse dresses. Hell, I've seen Lady
Gaga in worse dresses.

I had never seen or heard her before. To my great surprise, I thought
she sang well.
She's a very food performer. The first time I saw her was on the Royal
Variety show (I'd heard of her and heard some of bits of her music
before that, but that was the first time I saw her). It was a weird
performance, but also brilliant. But part of her shtick is being
unusual and provocative.
(that is a worse dress, btw).
Yep, still weird (she and her piano are suspended above the stage) but
her performance is still amazing.
She's performed for Brenda II several times, including at the Diamond
Jubilee and at least one other Royal Variety.
(I did not see this performance and don't know when it was, but it's a
much better dress, not as good a song though, I don't think.)
This is her outfit for "America the Beautiful" at a recent Super Bowl,
also a worse dress, I think. If you can call it a dress?
Like all Super Bowl halftime shows not featuring Prince, it's a pretty
damn silly show.

I noticed that nobody sang with her. Here, that would be considered
I did not watch the event¹, but it is rare in the US for a crowd to sing
along with a professional singer.
¹ I've watched some clips, but not of the musical performances. I
overheard a bit of someone singing "America the Beautiful" from the
next room, I think.
Han : Not a bad bit of rescuing, huh? You know, sometimes I amaze
Leia: That doesn't sound too hard.
