A Grammy Award (originally called Gramophone Award) – or Grammy – is an accolade by the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences of the United States to recognize outstanding achievement in the music industry. The annual presentation ceremony features performances by prominent artists, and some of the awards of more popular interest are presented in a widely viewed televised ceremony. It is the music equivalent to the Emmy Awards for television, the Tony Award for stage and the Academy Awards for film.

Influence

Although Gaga had a major 2009, following the chart-topping success of her debut album, The Fame, her earlier nod for "Best Dance Recording" for "Just Dance" barred her from being considered for "Best New Artist" at the 52nd Annual Grammy Awards.
In light of the "Gaga situation", the Recording Academy has announced that artists who have received previous nominations may still be eligible for the "Best New Artist" award.

"If an artist/group is nominated (but does not win) for the release of a single or as a featured artist or collaborator on a compilation or other artist's album before the artist/group has released an entire album (and becomes eligible in this category for the first time), the artist/group may enter this category in the eligibility year during which his/her/their first album is released".

Red Carpet

Lady Gaga famously arrived on the red carpet encased in a vessel. She was carried by a troop of dancers and remained in the vessel for the entire period in which she was on the red carpet. The purpose of the vessel was to implement her philosophy of beginning a performance on the red carpet an continuing it on stage and for the remainder of the show. So, when she would eventually leave the vessel, it would be the beginning of her "rebirth." Lady Gaga has stated that she considers this vessel as a fashion piece, and it was custom designed by Hussein Chalayan. The outfits of the dancers and the supermodel nurse were custom designed by MUGLER.

Acceptance speech

Holy shit! Thank you so much, from the bottom of my heart, to all my fans, to all the monsters watching. Thank you to my father, my mother, my beautiful sister Natali. I love you. To Vincent and Troy for standing by me, for being the best manager and the most amazing A&R partner a girl could ever have. Thank you Jimmy Iovine. Thank you so much to Doug Maurice and Lucius. Thank you to the whole team at Interscope. I had this dream, when I was really young, that I could be whoever I wanted to be, and no matter what I visioned for myself, that I would do it, no matter who didn't believe in me. Thank you so much. And thank you, I need to say thank you tonight to Whitney Houston. I wanted to thank Whitney because when I wrote Born This Way, I imagined she was singing it because I wasn't secure enough in myself to imagine I was a superstar. So Whitney, I imagined you were singing Born This Way when I wrote it. Thank you.
