Lady Gaga Opens 2013 MTV VMAs

World gets first performance of 'Applause'…

Lady Gaga has officially kicked off the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards in Brooklyn's Barclays Centre in New York with a world exclusive performance of Applause. 

Beginning by staring down the lens garbed in a sylised white nun outfit the ARTPOP songstress took fans down memory lane changing her costume throughout the performance including iconic wigs and clothing from her Just Dance and Telephone videos.
 
 
Surrounded by dancers in black leotards, Gaga eventually stripped down to the cockle-shell bra and thong mermaid-like look from her Applause video.
 
The 2013 MTV Video Awards will be shown on MTV from 8pm on Monday August 26.
