Lady Gaga entertained fans with her unpredictable performances during her recurring Vegas residency last year. The “Born This Way” singer mixed in jazz and piano performances, which featured stripped-down versions of her hits as well as music from the Great American Songbook.
The 33-year-old relies heavily on her early dance hits when putting together a setlist for her traditional Enigma shows, but the critically acclaimed “Shallow” from 2018’s “A Star is Born” was a crowd pleaser right off the bat and has already been performed live 31 times, according to setlist.fm, usually as an encore.
For the most part, fans can expect a heavy dose of songs from Lady Gaga’s 2008 debut The Fame and the 2009 reissue The Fame Monster at one of her concerts. But you never know what treats she’ll sprinkle in between. Here’s a look at the top ten songs Lady Gaga has performed live the most.
10. THE FAME - 330 TIMES
As the title track of her debut album, it works perfectly as a mission statement for the career she's embarking on. "I'm obsessively opposed to the typical," she sings.
9. BORN THIS WAY - 413 TIMES
The title track from her sophomore is an unapologetic bouncer that speaks for itself. "I want to write my this-is-who-the-f***-I-am anthem, but I don't want it to be hidden in poetic wizardry and metaphors," she told Billboard.
8. BEAUTIFUL, DIRTY, RICH - 418 TIMES
Gaga has said she was doing a lot of drugs at the time she wrote the song, "but it's also about how on the Lower East Side, there was a lot of rich kids who did drugs and said that they were poor artists, so it's also a knock at that," she said.
7. TELEPHONE - 434 TIMES
The version that appears on The Fame Monster features Beyoncé and it was originally written for Britney Spears.
6. ALEJANDRO - 466 TIMES
Lady Gaga's Madonna influence is rarely more apparent than on this track from The Fame Monster.
5. BAD ROMANCE - 518 TIMES
The pulsating track that leads off The Fame Monster details Gaga's penchant for getting involved with the wrong person.
4. LOVEGAME - 573 TIMES
The directly sexual single from her debut featured several remixes, including one involving Marilyn Manson.
3. PAPARAZZI - 632 TIMES
"It's a love song for the cameras, but it's also a love song about fame or love – can you have both, or can you only have one?" she explained.
2. JUST DANCE - 748 TIMES
The lead single from her debut album remains a standard and is about dancing through intoxication at a club.
1. POKER FACE - 822 TIMES
It's no surprise that the methodical track loaded with sexual innuendo tops the list. It's a fan favorite and reached #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 2009.
