Her stop in Atlanta’s Philips Arena was a monumental spectacle in every sense of the word. Consisting of a plethora of costume changes, magnificent lighting, bitchin’ graphics, and a jaw-dropping cast of backup dancers, Lady Gaga handed A-town a strong dose of her A-game.

Among the highlights of the night were her solo piano performance of “Edge of Glory;” which was preceded by a message to rise above the political, racial, sexual, and religious tensions our country is currently suffering through. Other notable moments were the several eye-opening stage variations of the night, and Gaga’s announcement of her 2 Grammy nominations prior to a rendition of famed anthem “Poker Face.” Nonetheless, the night’s most enthralling moment was a towering accomplishment, literally. Gaga & co. delve into smash single “Applause” in the most fantastic way … on 3 mini-stages … connected by 3 bridges … lowered from the ceiling … to make her way from the flashy front row seats all the way to the nosebleed section. Undeniably a one-of-a-kind maneuver.

If you’re nearby an upcoming event, do yourself the favor and go catch Lady Gaga entertain and blow some minds. You can thank us later.
