    It's just an amazing show. She does what she knows to do. It's amazing the way she feels the emotions of her fans and the way she sings. She DOES have voice not like the others...

    This special is spectacular, there is no denying the power and creativity of her craftsmanship. And to think that this was her first "real" and international tour. Amazing!

    An absolutely sensational concert event. At times gratuitous and uncensored, yet uplifting and inspiring. In addition to hearing her spectacular live voice, we also get a closer look behind the scenes of her complicated and elaborate live shows. Lady Gaga's show at Madison Square Garden is proof why she's a legend in the pop world, and a beacon of hope for the hopeless.

    Filled with great singing, dancing and elaborate sets like the giant monster fish this HBO special is sure to make you see how this pop star has way more to offer than just catchy fun pop songs. What is more impressive is her connection with her fans and how she commands the audience even when she is not singing; the mark of a real entertainer.

    The concert in general, the stage, the lights, the dancers, the music, and of course, Gaga, makes this show flawless and with little messages, the audience goes crazy, dancing, smiling and happy, Gaga knows how to perform!

    Fantastic concert. Gaga is an incredible singer and a natural performer, and she puts 110% into each show. This one is no different. Anyone who likes talent, art, and entertainment will appreciate this.

    You just have to wade through a landfill of lame camp and gratuitous weirdness to get to the pop center of Gaga's HBO show.

    If you're not a big fan of Gaga, or even if you think she's Madonna lite, this HBO concert film will make you a true believer--or a believer, at any rate.

    Filled with more shoulder pads than an episode of The Golden Girls, the special is actually at its best between songs when Gaga dishes out hilarious asides like "The only thing better than a unicorn is a gay unicorn."
