Tomorrow night Lady Gaga returns to the Toyota Center for her third packed show at the venue in less than a year. Last July, she held all the Little Monsters and pop fans hostage at TC for two blood-smeared, fiery, glittered, and hit-filled shows.
Rocks Off was there for the first night, the Sunday show, making for an awfully black sabbath, turning in a show featuring a huge green monster, a fountain of blood, and enough Gaga ass to keep us sated for months. Did we buy almost a 100 dollars in merch? Maybe. And maybe we have a Gaga poster on our bedroom wall from that night.
Anyhow, here are the good, the bad, and the ugly of the Lady Gaga covers on YouTube, from the menagerie of screamo covers, young prodigy Maria Aragon, and even a Led Zeppelin cover from Gaga herself, from before she was bathing in pearls and putting electrical tape on her nipples to go to Burger King.
Loren Allred "Speechless"
Orto Pilot "Just Dance"
Christian Rock FTW?
Daughtry "Poker Face"
Maria Aragon "Born This Way"
Aragon has actually mastered most every major recent pop song, better than some of the original artists.
Renoe Alexander "Dance In The Dark"
You're Going To Hollywood! Florida to visit your grandma.
All Time Low "Alejandro"
Shut up, Mom. Can I borrow the Prius?
Kids these days...
Traci Hines "Brown Eyes"
Finally, our Gaga and Jessica Rabbit obsessions have met in the middle.
Pre-Gaga Stefani Germanotta "D'yer Maker"
Hell, why not?
Lissie "Bad Romance"
Australian pop-singer that played in the lobby of our hotel during this year's SXSW.
