(UPDATED WITH VIDEO) Friday Night: Lady Gaga At Toyota Center

Lady Gaga Toyota Center April 8, 2011

Lady Gaga fell off her piano stool Friday night at the Toyota Center, during her newish "You And I," a sweetly nostalgic and classic AM radio cut from her upcoming Born This Way. To be clear, she had just been bending the keys with the heel of her stiletto boots while pounding out the notes, so she was already testing gravity.

She got up and promptly finished the song in front of the elegantly burned-out shamble of keys and wires, with just her voice.

"You will never see me lip-sync. You will never see some rich bitch limping through a set," she screamed five minutes later, after a costume and scenery change. She howled it with force during a moment of introspection in front of her pit of Monsters.

Welcome to Lady Gaga Country.
