First GRAMMY Wins
She's now a six-time GRAMMY winner, but following a single nomination at the 51st GRAMMYs, Lady Gaga came out swinging the following year at the 52nd GRAMMY Awards. She earned five nominations, including nods for Record Of The Year, Song Of The Year and Album Of The Year. By the end of the night, Mother Monster took home two awards: Best Dance Recording ("Poker Face") and Best Electronic/Dance Album (The Fame).
Album Of The Year GRAMMY Nominations
Lady Gaga has earned GRAMMY nods for the prestigious Album Of The Year category not just twice, but three times in her career. Her 2008 debut studio album The Fame was recognized at the 52nd GRAMMY Awards. She earned her second nomination for 2009's EP The Fame Monster at the 53rd GRAMMYs, and her most recent nod for Album Of The Year came for 2011's anthem-packed album Born This Way at the 54th GRAMMY Awards.
Taking Duets To Another Level
Lady Gaga is a versatile performer, and she proved that with her 2014 collaboration with Tony Bennett, Cheek To Cheek. The 11-track album saw the two artists taking a trip back into music history by reinterpreting classics such as "Anything Goes," "I Won't Dance" and "It Don't Mean A Thing (If It Ain't Got That Swing)." The album earned the dynamic duo the GRAMMY for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album at the 57th GRAMMY Awards.
GRAMMY Fashion To Remember
It's hard to mention Lady Gaga without also taking a trip down fashion memory lane. We've seen Gaga arrive at the GRAMMYs in everything: a glittery out-of-this world orbit dress, as a hatchling in a literal egg ushered down the red carpet and a David Bowie-inspired midnight blue gown with flaming red hair. Most recently, at the 60th GRAMMY Awards, Gaga elected to wear a stunning black laced Armani gown that radiated elegance.
Unforgettable GRAMMY Performances
Lady Gaga has become a GRAMMY stage regular, giving six career performances to date. Her first was a brilliant medley of "Poker Face," "Speechless" and "Your Song" with none other than Elton John at the 52nd GRAMMYs. She also delivered a killer Bowie tribute medley comprising more than 10 of Bowie's hits at the 58th GRAMMYs, rocked out with Metallica at the 59th GRAMMY Awards and at the 60th GRAMMYs delivered heartfelt renditions of her GRAMMY-nominated songs "Million Reasons" and "Joanne."
