Lady Gaga Performs 'A-Yo' And 'Million Reasons' On SNL

Lady Gaga

(Radio.com) Lady Gaga performed her two most recent singles, "A-Yo" and "Million Reasons," off her 'Joanne' album during her appearance on Saturday Night Live this past weekend (October 22nd).
For the up-tempo "A-Yo," Gaga started center stage on a lift. Wearing a silver sparkly crop top and fringe-laced bottoms along with her staple pink Joanne hat, she danced and twirled and generally seemed to seethe with a little bit of hostility. Her moves came across less like a pop star's fun and punctuating choreography and more like a singer's frantic, pointed moves as she tried to prove she could pull off a new genre of music. Gaga grabbed a big pink electric guitar to use more as a prop than an actual instrument near the song's end.

She changed gears with "Million Reasons," playing the mournful song at an upright piano accompanied by her co-writer Hillary Lindsey on guitar. Gaga wore a floor-length cape, and removed her pink Stetson hat for the duration of the performance. She gave the brooding song a tinge of anger as her playing grew more powerful. Whatever she had been wanting to work out on "A-Yo" carried over to "Million Reasons." Toward the end, she gave up accompanying herself on the instrument and climbed on top of it to finish the number with a theatrical bent. The song was a potent reminder that no matter what she's singing, by golly she can really sing. Watch it here.
