Sneak Peek: Lady Gaga Dances in Red Sequins on "Gossip Girl"

November 13, 2009 4:43 PM ET

A quick clip of Lady Gaga's performance on Monday's upcoming episode of Gossip Girl just surfaced, showing the Fame Monster singer belting out her new single "Bad Romance" for a select handful of dapper rich kids at an intimate club. Dressed in a cherry red sequined gown with a 35-foot chiffon train, Gaga floats about the stage with the help of three buff back-up dancers as Gossip Girl's Blair (Leighton Meester) looks on approvingly.

Flip through Lady Gaga's wildest looks.

As Rolling Stone previously reported, Gaga filmed her cameo for the episode — fittingly titled "The Last Days of Disco Stick" — at the Angel Orensanz Center (a New York venue that only fits 500 people, a fraction of Gaga's normal concert audience). "She was amazing," one of the show's executive producers, Stephanie Savage, told RS. "She was willing to stay on set and perform silently in the background of all of our shots so that she could stay a part of the scene and integrated into the action."

In the episode, Blair (Leighton Meester) enlists Gaga to play a show at NYU so she can impress the theater kids at school. How Blair pulled that off is anyone's guess. Another thing we'd like to know: Who's that mystery stud standing next to Blair in the clip?

Song Stories

“Try a Little Tenderness”

Otis Redding | 1966

This pop standard had been previously recorded by dozens of artists, including by Bing Crosby 33 years before Otis Redding, who usually wrote his own songs, cut it. It was actually Sam Cooke’s 1964 take, which Redding’s manager played for Otis, that inspired the initially reluctant singer to take on the song. Isaac Hayes, then working as Stax Records’ in-house producer, handled the arrangement, and Booker T. and the MG’s were the backing band. Redding’s soulful version begins quite slowly and tenderly itself before mounting into a rousing, almost religious “You’ve gotta hold her, squeeze her …” climax. “I did that damn song you told me to do,” Redding told his manager. “It’s a brand new song now.”
