Then, the singer appeared to jump off the roof of the stadium with her microphone in hand. The Internet went bonkers over her fearless jump, but it turns out it was pre-recorded.
In the video above, you can see that once the cameras showed Gaga leaping from the roof, a spotlight shined on her in mid air a few seconds later.
Intel told USA Today that they needed to pre-record her opening portion because they did not want to chance what the weather conditions would be like during live television for her safety.
Even though it was pre-recorded, Gaga did film the opening on the roof a couple days before. Live or not, she still gets major props for getting all the way up there.
