Lady Gaga SNL monologue in sparkly showgirl outfit

Lady Gaga was the host and musical guest on Saturday Night Live last night and she just killed it. For her monologue, Gaga came out dressed in a sparkly Chicago-style showgirl outfit and belted out an awesome jazz version of her hit "Applause." Only she gave it a comic twist, singing that she loves Cheap Applause. The monologue is not online yet, but it was a knockout. Gaga appeared in a number of sketches and in most of them she sent up her career and what the bloggers are saying about her. It was one of the best written shows of the season, no question.
