Gaga did SO WELL. She’s a natural performer, a gifted comedian. She did wonderfully and the general public will be talking about this all week. Her ability to make fun of herself while not losing her sense of an SNL host was incredible, she had the perfect balance of international celebrity and underground comedy girl.
The last sketch was nothing more than a reminder that we have not forgotten about this women in the five years that she’s been on the scene. And at the rate she continues at, we will never forget her. Gaga is like Cher or Madonna, she will be remembered, and she will produce work that is challenging and beautiful.
Gaga’s first time performance on SNL may not have had any of the memorable sketches that she guest-starred in during former musical performances, but she made her own way and crafted one of the best episodes of SNL in recent memory.
