Here's a clip of Lady Gaga, or as she was then known in 2005, Stefani Germanotta, performing her own original song at NYU's annual talent show. The poor girl is not yet comfortable with her gift, as we can see when the announcer calls her 'talented' she groans. She ended up coming in 3rd place. 2nd place was Funky Butter. 1st place was Tom Costello & Stephan Magloire. And where, pray tell, is Stephan now?

Note the black hair, the pre-surgery nose and dammit, the raw, unadulterated talent that led her all the way to the top. Brava, Gaga!
