Strangely enough, people actually seemed SURPRISED that she killed the performance.

She's built a career on meat suits and insanity - but that #Oscars performance was the first time @ladygaga has actually shocked me #slay

So if you think Lady Gaga is just some pop star with some crazy outfits, you need to SIT YOUR ASS DOWN and receive an education about what an epic artist she truly is.

Let's start with her voice, because DUH. Have you heard her stripped-down acoustic version of "Edge Of Glory"?

How about her Grammys duet with Tony Bennett? It's obvious that Gaga doesn't just have a voice for pop... but for jazz and theater.

Now let's go way way back, before she was famous. She basically was DESTINED for greatness, because she learned to play the piano at age four and was accepted to the Juilliard School at 11 ...

Just check out this ethereal performance from when Gaga was at NYU. It's clear the talent has ALWAYS been there.

So yeah, Gaga knows a thing or two about writing and producing music — she's churned out tracks for Britney Spears, Fergie, the Pussycat Dolls, and Jennifer Lopez, as well.

She ain't just some vocalist for hire like some other pop stars out there! NOT NAMING NAMES but you know who you are.

But Gaga ALSO is an incredible live performer. Maybe you remember her insane dance moves... sick vocals... and crazy piano skills from her Grammys performance with Sir Elton John?

You probably should watch it. Right NOW.

Or what about her fiercely theatrical VMAs performance of "Paparazzi" in 2009 where she DIED ON STAGE???

Or "G.U.Y." which also featured The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills?!?!?

AND IS ALMOST 12 MINUTES LONG.

This also wasn't the first time Gaga was called in because a major event needed a one-of-a-kind headliner. Maybe you heard about the time she played for the MOTHERFUCKING Queen of England...

We can't wait to see what you're gonna do next.
