VIDEO: Lady Gaga rocks India

Lady Gaga made quite an impression on her fans in India during a performance at the after-party for the country’s first F1 Grand Prix at the Buddh International Circuit in Greater Noida.

The Economic Times reports Gaga followed through on her promise of a "special treat” for her Indian fans, as she performed on piano and was accompanied on sitar.

"Gaga's performance was delightful. She was high on energy and the audience was extremely excited about it. The stage was grand and Gaga was in her spirits," said a teenager who saw Gaga perform at a special 20,000 sq ft construction at the Jaypee Greens Golf and Spa Resort in Greater Noida.

The party was hosted by Bollywood actor Arjun Rampal and restaurateur AD Singh's lounge-bar LAP Sunday night.

Dressed in a white, knee-length dress with open, blonde locks, Gaga collaborated with a sitar player to offer some fusion music to the guests. She also sang some of her popular hits as well as new songs from her latest album, "Born This Way," according to a party insider.

She ended her performance with a warm and cheerful "Namaste India," said a source.

Prior to the performance, Arjun told reporters that Gaga had rehearsed for six hours for the show.

"We have the best performer in the house for the party! I saw her rehearsals and she has prepared the best. She has planned a nice single which she has never performed before. It's from her new album and she especially prepared for her fans here. She will also sing with a sitar player to add some Indian element," Arjun said before the party kicked off.

Even actor Chunky Pandey, who caught some bits of the rehearsals, said: "She has planned a fantastic show. I saw her rehearsals, and she is very professional. She has planned a fusion."
