Worst: Lady Gaga
If it were any other artist, Lady Gaga’s show opener would have gotten a rave; but by her own standards, it was a major let down, especially compared to her past VMA performances. Starting as a nun, Lady Gaga ripped through costume after costume and wig after wig as she worked through snippets from her past videos before ending up in the clam-shell bikini and smeared face-paint from the “Applause video.” Bring back the meat dress.
