Last night Lady Gaga led a galaxy of stars performing in Times Square to celebrate the New Year.
Lady Gaga, 25, put on a stellar show in front of the one million revellers gathered in New York to welcome in 2012.
The kooky singer was joined by the likes of Justin Bieber, Pitbull, LMFAO, Florence and The Machine and The Band Perry who all took to the stage throughout the evening.
As always, Lady Gaga did not disappoint and neither did her outfits with the singer enjoying several wardrobe changes throughout the evening.
When the time came activate the ball drop Lady Gaga was on hand to help New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
Looking glittery as the orb itself, Lady Gaga was invited by New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg to press the crystal button at 11:59 p.m. that triggered the decent of the 2012 New Year’s Eve Ball – a dazzling sphere 12 feet in diameter that weighs 11,875 pounds.
More than one ton of confetti – some of it inscribed with wishes for the New Year written by people across the globe –descended on the revellers in New York, who enjoyed an unseasonably warm New Year’s.
Dick Clark – who has hosted his New Year’s Eve special since the 1970’s – is again being helped this year by his protégé Ryan Seacrest for the 40th anniversary of the show. The ABC special has been expanded and now begins at 8:00 p.m., making the six-hour broadcast the longest ever.
Teen favorite Justin Bieber took to the stage alongside legendary guitar player Carlos Santana to perform the classic Beatles hit Let It Be.
Justin Bieber, 17, showed off his piano skills as he spoke about New Year’s resolutions but said “what’s done is done’.
He donned a bright red beanie, a camel colored coat, a Burberry scarf and maroon jeans for the occasion for his performance.
After the New Year celebrations were over Lady Gaga took to Twitter to talk about her experience.
Lady Gaga tweeted: “I cant even quite describe what tonight felt like. Sort of poetic madness. A dream come true. Moments recalling a leather taking the subway.
“My new years resolution: Never be afraid to be kicked in the teeth. Let the blood and the bruises define your legacy.”
