She had already made one of her most bizarre red carpet entrances yet as she arrived at the Grammys concealed in a giant egg.

And Lady Gaga made sure she 'hatched' in a spectacular way for her performance at last night's live show.

The 24-year-old outrageous singer emerged from the glowing egg to launch into a spectacular version of her latest single Born This Way.

Scroll down to see video of the performance...

Dramatic: The singer's outrageous red carpet entrance and subsequent performance didn't disappoint fans as she left her egg

Wearing a sheer gold coloured skirt and cropped top, with her hair tied up in a style reminiscent of Madonna's Blonde Ambition tour era, the singer danced her way through the number.

At one point, she played on a dramatic organ with disembodied heads balanced on top.

Gaga bagged three awards and was nominated for a total of six gongs.

Ensemble: Gaga wowed fans with a spectacular dance routine at the Los Angeles awards show for which she has received six nominations

She was honoured for best pop vocal album and had censors reaching for the mute button after she exclaimed, 'Oh, s***!' when she accepted it.

Earlier, the star had been barely visible through opaque shell as she was carried on a sedan chair by four scantily-clad attendees at the event, being held at the Staples Center in Downtown Los Angeles.

Known for her kooky outfits, it appears the outrageous star may well have outdone herself.

Another outfit change: The singer slipped into another risque outfit of knee-high boots and gaffer tape around her chest with a half jacket

The star is currently riding high in the download charts after her new song Born This Way managed to hit number one in 21 countries within hours of being available to download on Friday.

Her entourage did the speaking for her on the red carpet as they chatted to Ryan Seacrest - Gaga refused to speak because she was in 'incubation' ahead of her performance although she did muster a wave.

She spoke to E! host Ryan Seacrest through the egg

'She's in an embryonic state and won't be born until the performance,' explained one of her assistant to Seacrest.

The egg is fitted with an oxygen tank and a fan.

Seacrest told E! viewers that the singer has been inside the egg for three hours getting into character ahead of her performance of the track tonight with only her Blackberry for company.

Kelly Osbourne tweeted: 'You will not believe your eyes when you see how @ladygaga showed up to the Grammys.'

Last year Gaga caused controversy by turning up to the MTV Video Music Awards in a dress made out of meat.

Entertainment channel E! also managed to set a new world record for the largest gathering of Lady Gaga impersonators.

The group, who strutted the red carpet, had to dress in an outfit resembling one worn by the star in the past - either on the red carpet or for a performance.

The exact number of people who took part is set to be released shortly.
