Lady Gaga performs 'Judas' live at Cannes film festival [Pictures]
The "surprise" performance was actually a rehearsal for a gig on the TV show "Le Grand Journal" that happened later in the evening. Clad in a casual-for-Gaga black ensemble, below, the singer arrived with several bodyguards at the Canal+ studio on the Croisette.
"It was so lovely performing with the ocean," she said. "I would’ve liked to have jumped in after the performance!"
After the televised performance and still wearing one of her elaborate costumes, she talked to fans and signed autographs.
