After a rousing performance by Kendrick Lamar, Lady Gaga took to the Grammys stage with a much more somber offering. The multiple Grammy winner brought two tracks off her 4th album Joanne to the stage when she performed part of “Joanne,” the album’s title track and “A Million Reasons,” which she has now trotted out onto television a few too many times.
Most people were “gaga” over the performance.

Gaga always sounds good, but I was mostly impressed she pulled off a Grammy booking for that project.

That was my favorite Lady Gaga performance at the #GRAMMYs since she opened the show with Elton John in 2010.

During the performance, Gaga said “Time’s Up,” a reference to the #TimesUp movement, meant to bring light to women facing sexual assault in and out of the entertainment industry. Several celebritiesall of them womenshouted out the movement during their Golden Globes speeches, as well.
Gaga has spoken about sexual assault in her music before. She released the song “Til It Happens To You,” which she performed at the 2016 Academy Awards, to bring light to campus sexual assault.
