Gaga then appeared on Oprah, surprising the audience with an acoustic rendition of “Born This Way” and a performance of “You and I,” the new ballad she lent to American Idol‘s Haley Reinhart, from atop – what else? – a giant high-heeled stiletto piano. No big deal.  Watch the clip below!

Oprah was then followed by the NOT-TO-BE-MISSED HBO premiere of Lady Gaga Presents The Monster Ball Tour at Madison Square Garden.

Filmed at her show at Madison Square Garden on February 21st, the two-hour special switches between the concert and black-and-white footage of her arriving to the show, changing between sets and her off-stage remarks.

Lady Gaga’s sold-out Monster Ball tour has been circling the globe since November 2009 and wraps up today in Mexico City after 201 phenomenal concerts worldwide.

Now Mother Monster’s media take over is at it again.  Lady Gaga is  releasing “The Edge of Glory” today at 1pm PT / 4pm ET, kicking off iTunes’ “Countdown to Born This Way” promotion leading up to the album’s 5/23 release.

“The Edge of Glory,” which features E Street Band saxophonist Clarence Clemons, was inspired by the death of Gaga’s grandfather in late 2010.  In her interview for Musicians@Google Presents: Google Goes Gaga,Gaga explained that the song is “about your last moment on earth, the moment of truth, the moment before you leave earth.”

Rolling Stone writer Matthew Perpetua reviewed the track in February, writing “This one sounds crazy in print — it’s a massive power ballad with heavy club beats that features Clarence Clemons of the E Street Band wailing on his saxophone — but somehow it all seems totally natural when you actually hear it…  The inclusion of Clemons is an inspired touch that amplifies the song’s Eighties stadium rock vibe, but his actual performance is amazing and ranks among the best of his career.”
