Spectacle: Lady Gaga 'hatches' out of a giant egg during her performance of Born This Way at the Grammy Awards in Los Angeles tonight

She had already made one of her most bizarre red carpet entrances yet as she arrived at the Grammys concealed in a giant egg.
And Lady Gaga made sure she 'hatched' in a spectacular way for her performance at tonight's live show.
The 24-year-old outrageous singer emerged from the glowing egg to launch into a spectacular version of her latest single Born This Way.
Dramatic: The singer's outrageous red carpet entrance and subsequent performance didn't disappoint fans as she left her egg
Wearing a sheer gold coloured skirt and cropped top, with her hair tied up in a style reminiscent of Madonna's Blonde Ambition tour era, the singer danced her way through the number.
At one point, she played on a dramatic organ with disembodied heads balanced on top.
Gaga has scored six nominations at this year's awards, including one for Album of the Year.

Earlier, the star had been barely visible through opaque shell as she was carried on a sedan chair by four scantily-clad attendees at the event, being held at the Staples Center in Downtown Los Angeles.
Known for her kooky outfits, it appears the outrageous star may well have outdone herself.

Her entourage did the speaking for her on the red carpet as they chatted to Ryan Seacrest - Gaga refused to speak because she was in 'incubation' ahead of her performance although she did muster a wave.
'She's in an embryonic state and won't be born until the performance,' explained one of her assistant to Seacrest.
The egg is fitted with an oxygen tank and a fan.
Seacrest told E! viewers that the singer has been inside the egg for three hours getting into character ahead of her performance of the track tonight with only her Blackberry for company.
Kelly Osbourne tweeted: 'You will not believe your eyes when you see how @ladygaga showed up to the Grammys.'
Last year Gaga caused controversy by turning up to the MTV Video Music Awards in a dress made out of meat.
