First came “Born This Way,” then came a country version — we would have expected a hip-hop version next, but we couldn’t have been more wrong.

Lady Gaga rang in her 25th birthday on Monday (Mar. 28) with a live performance at LA’s Staples Center, but before that she took a much smaller stage at low-key Mexican restaurant, La Cita.

Us Weekly reports that 60 of Gaga’s closest friends gathered to surprise the “Born This Way” singer with dinner, drinks and of course, a Mariachi band. Gaga, sporting a black slinky dress and giant blonde beehive, joined the band onstage for a very special rendition of her latest hit.

What do you think of the Latin infused “Born This Way?”
