The inaugural YouTube Music Awards, streamed live on Sunday (Nov. 3), felt like a confusing mess most of the time, but at least the ceremony had some interesting music performances going for it.

Lady Gaga‘s emotional debut performance of new ballad “Dope,” off upcoming album “ARTPOP,” was one such performance. In a atypically restrained costume, with very little makeup, Mother Monster sat at her piano and wailed out the plaintive  tune, an ode to a love she needs “more than dope.”

Check out the performance above and yet us know what you think of Gaga’s latest single.
