Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber perform at 2011 Bambi Awards (video)

What did Gaga do this time?

While the Bambi Awards are not exactly well-known here in North America, it is a major ceremony in Germany — so with that in mind, it shouldn’t be too big of a surprise to see some of the biggest stars in music there to perform.

Let’s look at both Lady Gaga’s and Justin Bieber’s performances for the show individually (you can also check out some performance videos below each description):

Lady Gaga – The singer has always been about putting on a show, and she did so yet again this week with a take on “Marry the Night” that included a piano built into a car door. If that wasn’t cool enough, then the musicality of this performance will surely get you. “Marry the Night” should have been released as a single far before now.

Justin Bieber – Performing a song like “Mistletoe” can be tough, if for no other reason that that it is still over a month away from Christmas. Thankfully, there were plenty of people in attendance ready for holiday cheer.

To make matters even more interesting, we also saw a language barrier at work during this performance. Things were awkward for a moment when a presenter brought a pair of girls onstage to greet Justin, but then he made things a bit easier for them by inviting them backstage.
