The Bad Romance hitmaker took to the stage in three offbeat looks, one of which comprised of a rear-flashing blue leotard.

The bodysuit was emblazoned with an array of pearl embellishments, while its dramatic padded shoulders made for some added pizzazz.

She paired the costume with sexy thigh-high boots, beneath which she donned a pair of racy fishnet tights.

But the ensembles only got saucier as they evening progressed, with Gaga – real name Stefani Germanotta – later leaving little to the imagination in an opaque all-in-one catsuit.

The design just about covered her intimate areas, thanks to a number of leather inserts that were placed sporadically around the piece.

Despite the outfit’s revealing nature, the chart-topper wore the look with confidence as she paraded around the stage.

Her performance came just days after a number of explosive texts from Lady Gaga’s six-year copyright battle with a little-known artists over her hit song Judas. 

The messages expose the pop singer’s desperate plea to be credited on Jennifer Lopez’s album to avoid being labeled a copycat, DailyMail.com can reveal.

Drama! DailyMail.com recently revealed that Gaga pleaded to be credited on Jennifer Lopez’s 2011 Love album after being embroiled in a bitter copyright battle with Rebecca Francescatti

Chicago-based singer/songwriter Rebecca Francescatti sued the Poker Face singer in 2011 claiming Judas was based on her own song ‘Juda,’ which she wrote in 1999.

The 43-year-old alleged in her lawsuit that she worked on the track with recording engineer Brian Gaynor, who subsequently passed the track onto Gaga.

A judge originally ruled in Gaga’s favor, but Francescatti appealed the decision and the case was finally dismissed by Francescatti two months ago after she and the Born This Way singer agreed on a settlement.

However, documents from the lawsuit obtained by DailyMail.com reveal Gaga demanded credit for co-creating songs on J-Lo’s 2011 album, Love?, to avoid any misconception that she copied Lopez’s song, Invading My Mind, because of its similarities to Judas.

The texts have been made public for the first time in court filings, which exposes Gaga’s own ruthlessness in the music industry, as she had also counter-sued Francescatti – a penniless musician and artist – for $1.4 million in legal costs, which was ultimately thrown out.

In court documents obtained by DailyMail.com Francescatti’s attorney William Niro called the pop star ‘a liar’ and reveals texts between Gaga, 31, whose real name is Stefani Germanotta, and her producer RedOne, who was also working with Jennifer Lopez at the time.

Previously, these texts had been kept sealed as part of an agreement Gaga’s lawyers had with the judge.

In the lawsuit, Gaga claimed she decided to name her song Judas after her split with entrepreneur Speedy in May 2010. She said she thought of him as ‘Judas’ because, ‘he’s the betrayer of all things, you know, because Judas is the biblical betrayer of all things.’

Illinois district judge Marvin Aspen ruled in Gaga’s favor back in May 2014, saying the two tracks didn’t sound similar enough to infringe on Francescatti’s copyright.

But Francescatti appealed that decision at the US Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit.

She argued that the original ruling was invalid as it should be heard by a jury preferably made up of people with music experience, rather than being seen by a single district judge with limited experience.

The revelation of the texts was part of Francescatti’s argument intended to damage Gaga’s credibility and claimed she did not create Judas independently.
