During the interview segment of the show, Gaga was asked about the issue of illegibility to receive a nomination for "Best New Artist", because "Just Dance" was nominated in 2009. Neil Portnow, Grammy president, told Entertainment Weekly that they were considering bending the rules so Gaga would have a chance at the award, however, an official spokeswoman for the Recording Academy told the Los Angeles Times that the ballots had already been tallied for the event, and the nominees were ready to be announced. Although Gaga wasn't able to be nominated for the award, she mentioned that she will always remember her mother attempting to bend the rules for her.
I'll tell you the biggest reward for me has been my fans, […] I truthfully don't rely on that outside validation. My fans are my family now, and really what I care about is what they think.
For the performance segment, Gaga performed "Bad Romance", and was seen wearing a pair of black sunglasses and a black jacket. The all male backup-dancers were wearing black suits and S&M headgears. The performance starts off with an A cappella rendition, then the instruments start, with choreography mirroring that of the music video. During the performance, the dancers removed Lady Gaga's jacket after the first chorus for more mobility.
