Pop star Lady Gaga made her entrance to the Grammy Awards on Sunday encased in a giant egg. The pop star was barely visible inside the opaque capsule.

RENEE MONTAGNE, host:

Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne.

The year's hottest musicians converged on downtown Los Angeles for last night's Grammy awards. And another bold fashion statement from Lady Gaga. She arrived in an egg, carried Cleopatra-style by near-naked models. The pop star was barely visible inside the opaque capsule. Some even doubted she was inside. The stunt was a promotion for her new single "Born This Way," which she later performed after hatching.

It's MORNING EDITION.
