This is no perfect illusion: Lady Gaga will be taking the stage on November 20th to perform live at the American Music Awards, where she’ll be singing tracks from her newly released record, Joanne.
Lady Gaga’s recent shows have been intimate and small in tiny dive bars in Nashville and New York. While they were streamed on the Internet for virtually anybody in the world, the atmosphere had a close-knit feel with a certain sense of genuineness to it – it’s a vibe that Gaga regularly experienced when performing in these kinds of venues when she first started out. However, this performance, on a much larger stage, is finally going to put her back in the spotlight that she flourishes in effortlessly, and luckily, she’s got the music to back it up now, too.
Joanne, released this past Friday, has Gaga at her finest, delivering her most vulnerable, personal and best songs yet. There’s no doubt she’ll perform “Perfect Illusion” on the big stage, and you can put your bets on a performance of “A-Yo,” too. If you had any doubts whether this new sound from Gaga is working, take a look at the chart projections: Hits Daily Double reports that Joanne is expected to debut at number one, moving around 190,000 units – it would mark the third number one solo album in Lady Gaga’s career.
