Adelaide's 'little monsters' were out in force last night, with 10,000 of them converging on the city's Entertainment Centre for Lady Gaga's one and only Adelaide show. They dressed to the nines - many with drink cans rolled into their hair ala the 'Telephone' clip. Some wore not much at all. One young man had his face painted, wore knee-high black boots and a bright pink tutu.
They all came to witness arguably the most exciting new pop artist on the planet in the flesh - and they most certainly weren't disappointed.
Though the show was peppered with adult imagery and a number of expletives, it also showed why brand Gaga is an untouchable pop force right now. She had the audience in the palm of her hand from woe to go, constantly reassuring them that her fans were the best fans in the world - and that without them she would surely die. And as always, the loudest cheers were saved for when she mentioned the magical word... "Adelaide"
It was fresh, it was fun, the hits came thick and fast, there was a burning piano, a nod to her gay boy fans, a big monster, fabulous frocks and hot dancers. And with no intermission, Gaga sang and danced her way through the two hour set with an incredible energy.
And as she mentioned in the show, it's incredible to think that just two years ago, we had no idea who she was.
Now, she's one of the biggest stars on planet pop - and with the Monster Ball tour, it's not hard to see why.
