What an entrance: Lady Gaga arrives to the Grammy Awards in Los Angeles today, hiding in a giant egg
Singer is in 'incubation' and will not emerge until tonight's performance
She has already spent three hours inside the egg getting into character
The shell is fitted with an oxygen tank and a fan inside
How long has Lady Gaga been hatching this plan?
The Born This Way singer managed to make her most bizarre red carpet entrance yet at the Grammys today as she arrived concealed in an egg.
Gaga, 24, was 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.

She spoke to E! host Ryan Seacrest through the egg
Known of her kooky outfits, it appears the outrageous star may well have outdone herself.
The star is currently riding high in the download charts after her new song Born This Way managed to hit number one in 21 countries within hours of being available to download on Friday.
Cracking up! Her arrival created something of a stir amongst onlookers
Lady Gaga is also a promising figure in the awards, with six nominations, including for Album of the Year.
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 signer 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.

Entertainment channel E! also managed to set a new world record for the largest gathering of Lady Gaga impersonators.
The group, who strutted the red carpet, had to dress in an outfit resembling one worn by the star in the past - either on the red carpet or for a performance.
The exact number of people who took part is set to be released shortly.
