"Jewels N' Drugs" (Intro)

"Jewels N' Drugs" plays as Gaga changes outfits and wigs. A video interlude is also shown on the screen in the back showing Gaga dancing. Gaga rises from the stage near the piano and sings one chorus of "Jewels N' Drugs" then the song ends. During Gaga's costume change, her dancers pop star-shaped confetti and dance to the music.

At the show at Madison Square Garden on May 13, T.I. joined Gaga for a surprise performance of the song; the first time that he has performed the song with her. Jewels N' Drugs was played after "Born This Way" at the Madison Square Garden show to give T.I. time to do his verse and after he finished, he and Gaga went down on the stage.

"Letters to Gaga"

After Aura, Gaga talks to the audience while fans throw letters onstage. Gaga chooses a couple letters and reads them aloud to her fans. On some occasions, she performs a song dedicated to the letter's writer. She also always invites the letter's writer backstage.

On May 20, 2014, Gaga read a letter from a Little Monster named Jose. He explained how his sister was at rock bottom, so he gave her his copy of "Born This Way". He also said that "The Queen" was her favorite song from the album. Gaga then sang the chorus of "The Queen" acapella for her.

On May 25, 2014, Gaga read a letter from a Little Monster named Tyler. He explained how him and his friend Matt always listened to her music and they loved her song "Hair", but Matt tragically passed away after getting cancer. In memory of Matt, Gaga performed a shortened version of "Hair" that played the first verse and chorus. It started acapella, but the band joined in on their own.

On October 92014, Gaga read a letter from a Little Monster named Dennis. He explained how his relationship with his mother was complicated. She passed away 2 months before "Born This Way" was released and how he loved the songs "Marry The Night" and "The Edge of Glory" of how they meant much to him and how Gaga inspired him and made him feel stronger. So, Gaga sang a short piano (even though she didn't play it) acoustic version of "Marry The Night".

"Sexxx Dreams"

A red couch is risen onto the main stage for the performance of "Sexxx Dreams". Gaga begins the song while laying on the couch as the dancers push it to the side of the stage. At the pre-chorus, Gaga gets up from the couch and performs the song with the dancers on the main stage. The backdrop show black and white curved shapes moving. During the choruses, the backdrop video shows the song's lyrics flashing across the screen in large white letters. Starting on October 15, 2014, at the first show in Birmingham at NIA Arena, a new intro is used for the song. The intro features the drums only while Gaga dances and opens her jacket and speaks out "At the artRAVE, nothing's what it seems. So I close my eyes and think about you and I have these sex dreams." (though this may change sometimes) and everything stops and quickly changes to the song as the dancers enter the stage.

"Mary Jane Holland Intro"

"Mary Jane Holland" begins with a new intro during which a pre-recorded Gaga voice says: "Now, is a good time to light up".

"Mary Jane Holland"

White cabaret chairs are brought out onto the stage by the dancers for a performance of "Mary Jane Holland". Gaga sits on one of the chairs while it rotates on a platform as she starts the song. The dancers then join her and they perform "Mary Jane Holland" on the main stage while doing choreography with the chairs. Half way through the bridge, the dancers exit the stage and leave Gaga with three chairs. During the final chorus, she places a chair around her neck, holds another atop her head, and drags one behind her as she walks across the stage. The song is shortened, removing the second verse and chorus. The ending of the song fades into the start of "Alejandro" and features Gaga acting as if she smoked marijuana and gets "high" with a male dancer.

Immediately after "Mary Jane Holland(or "Sexxx Dreams" on some shows) ends, Gaga performs "Alejandro" with the female dancers on the c-stage.
