Mother Monster began the show with a message of acceptance, singing "God Bless America," from the top of the stadium before making a unique dive onto the field for "Poker Face."
A shimmering, Spider-Man like maneuver -- along with a mid-air hairdo change by Gaga -- followed before the singer belted out another hit, "Born This Way."
Gaga's performance of "Telephone"again stirred up rumors of a Beyonce appearance, despite Gaga's instance otherwise, but Bey was nowhere to be found.
The New York native then continued with "Just Dance," a song from her latest album, Joanne, "Million Reasons," and "Bad Romance," before literally dropping the mic and jumping into the abyss in an epic conclusion to her performance.
Despite rumors of special guest stars, Gaga announced just hours before her performance that she would be flying solo.
"I want to say thank you to my fans for cheering me on all these years. There will not be any guest performers tonight, I'm doing these 13 minutes solo!" she wrote on Instagram in a touching post thanking her fans. "Thank you for believing in us so we could be here today little monsters this is YOUR stage. And I'm gonna leave my heart on it so you never forget it. Let's do this."
ET caught up with Gaga's parents, Cynthia and Joe Germanotta, ahead of their daughter's performance, where they gushed about her big moment.
"From the time she was little until now, she's been an inspiration to all of us," Joe said. "Not only to our family, but to the world, and to finally realize this... to be on the biggest stage on the world is every artist's dream."
