Overwhelmed Lady Gaga cried before duet with Elton John

Lady Gaga “cried” because she was so overwhelmed at singing with Elton John.

The 23-year-old singer was so happy the pair got to perform a spectacularly extravagant duet – seated either side of a giant piano which sprouted hands – at the Grammy Awards on Sunday she was forced to make an emergency visit to her make-up artist shortly before she was due on stage.

She said: “I’m just so happy, I can’t say enough and Elton was so amazing and the performance was really truly magical. I had been fantasising about this performance piece for a while and we got to do it… and I’m just really truly floored.

“I ruined all of my make-up right before the show. Crying… I was just so happy.”

The ‘Bad Romance’ singer picked up two awards at the event – Best Electronic/Dance Album for ‘The Fame’ and Best Electronica/Dance Song for ‘Poker Face’ – and dedicated her wins to her legion of fans.

She told ‘Access Hollywood’: “This is not an award for me, it’s for my fans. And I love my fans so much. And I wanted them to know that they should believe in themselves.

“And I wanted to be everything that they hoped I would be tonight, and that’s what we got to do.”
