Singer brings her 'Poker Face' to Worthy Farm
The star’s performance involved numerous costume changes and a typically provocative anecdote about topless festival-going as she played an 8pm (BST) slot on the Other Stage.
The singer began her set with ‘Paparazzi’, emerging from a silver case, opened up by dancers to reveal her sporting a silver, robot-style sparkly dress.
The New York musician played an enormous keytar to end the song while standing on a revolving platform that span round to reveal her buttocks to the crowd, inducing a ripple of cheering.
The singer was playing with a new backing band for the first time in public, leaving them to play an instrumental jam while she underwent a costume change. She returned to play ‘Boys Boys Boys’ wearing a red outfit covered in spikes, flanked by a pair of mopeds on stage.
Following another costume change into a nipple-revealing black outfit she donned a bra that fired sparkle-flames from her breast area when she sang the chorus to ‘Eh Eh’.
Lady Gaga ended her set with a rendition of ‘Poker Face’ on piano wearing a bubble-laden outfit, followed by the full version of the song.
Lady Gaga played:
‘Boys Boys Boys’
‘Poker Face (piano version)’
