Lady Gaga's Top Art Moments Grammy Awards 2010

Performances With Sculptures by Terence Koh

As the opening act of the 2010 Grammy Awards, Lady Gaga's performance with Elton John had to be a bang. Recognizing this, she commissioned Canadian artist Terence Koh to create a piano for the two legendary singers. Inspired by the claw-shaped "monster hands," which fans would make during Lady Gaga's concerts, Koh fashioned a dual-sided "Monster Claw Piano," which as its name suggests, is adorned with those very claw-hands, protruding from the Baldwin pianos' surfaces.

The siamese piano was such a hit that Koh was asked to design her piano and a separate sculpture for her Brit Awards performance a month later, which as a tribute to Alexander McQueen. Koh also went on to design the "Rubberman Piano" used during the AmfAR New York Gala and a collaborative charity concert between the two friends called GAGAKOH
