Lady Gaga broke down in tears on U.S. television on Wednesday night (27Jul11) as she was overwhelmed by a performance on So You Think You Can Dance.
The Poker Face hitmaker was acting as a guest judge on the reality contest alongside panellists Rob Marshall, Nigel Lythgoe and Mary Murphy.
But when she was faced with judging a contemporary routine by dancer Marko Germar, which aimed to promote more tolerance and less judgement in the world, she was overcome with emotion.
She choked back tears as she told him, “I’m just so proud of you. You really love to dance… There were so many things I did wrong when I was younger and so many things I wish I could take back. I felt every moment of that in your dance tonight.
“You are absolutely incredible. Whether you are number one, three or 10, you have it.”
