Lady Gaga performs 'Marry the Night' for first time: watch the video here

Shockingly, here’s something Lady Gaga hasn’t done before: A stripped-down performance of “Marry the Night,” from India, complete with sitar accompaniment.

The video marks Gaga’s first live performance of the song — minus her briefly singing a few stanzas in her Monster Ball HBO special — which will be her fifth single off Born This Way.   The video for “Marry the Night” is set for release sometime in the next few weeks, and the cover art has already been revealed on Gaga’s Twitter account.

She marked her first trip to India with this performance in New Dehli, telling fans, “I’ve waited a lifetime to come here tonight, and I’m very grateful. I’m so happy I get to be here and sing for all of you.”

Watch the performance below:

I’m not sure I’m feeling the sitar here, but I am enjoying this slowed-down version of one of her dance tracks. Like she’s done with all of her big songs, Gaga’s best surprises are the simple piano-plus-voice gems she’ll regularly perform. Let me add my voice to many of her Little Monsters’ wishes: an all-acoustic album in 2012!

Readers, do you agree? And what do you think of “Marry the Night”?

    I’m still hoping for the day when she puts out an acoustic album. Just her and her piano, instead of wasting her talent making pop songs.

    • Mike

      When are you going to do something productive with your life?

      • Gretchen Weiners

        What does that have to do with anything I just said? If having a job and paying for college to get my education isn’t productive, I don’t know what is. Troll.

    • Kelsey

      She may not have a whole album with all acoustic songs on it, but she has done quite a few versions of her songs with just her and the piano. I agree though ….. I’d like to hear all her songs stripped down more.

  • idviceroy

    Didn’t she do the song on a BBC performance or something when the album came out. I thought she rose from a coffin.

      @jennysong. Who gives a rat’s youknowhat about Stay on topic or get off the site!

    She’s amazing! And to think this woman has been performing and touring non-stop for three years and her voice still sounds this fantastic. No offense to Adele (who I think is great), but she can’t even get through one 11-date tour without vocal drama. It just seems like some people are in it to win it and some are not. Gaga is the first kind.

    • Ben

      Adele has an infection/condition that requires surgery, idiot.

  • goliath

    well please could she release goverment hooker and sheibe already?, GH is sexy sexy song and sheibe is awesome, i play them and heavy metal lover when i paint!

  • Paige

    I love her singing voice and i love this song and love it even more live.

  • Paige

    I just love this acoustic version so much so much i wish she would release it on a cd live, i haven’t felt this way since i heard bad romance live. Gaga is the only complete pop artist not including adele or christana because they are soul and r and b. Pure pop in the category of britney rihanna and katy Gaga is the only one with real vocal talent. I can’t wait to comes to america to perform it without all the damn talking.
