Lady Gaga Enigma at Park MGM Kicked Off on Friday

The singer, 32, unveiled her latest alter-ego as she transformed into a sparkling metallic alien on stage at the Park Theater in the Monte Carlo Hotel.

The preview appears to resurrect PetGa, an "alien" interface of an app that generated users' auras that appeared alongside Gaga's 2013 ArtPop album. Her fans can be heard encouraging her to continue. She also sat in an egg that hung from the ceiling.

Gaga's sparkle-filled, technology inspired costumes also inhabit the extraterrestrial space and are said to represent what the artist does best: combine her art with fashion and create a shared idea of both story and style.

The show touched of everything from the upbeat, such as "Bad Romance" and "Applause", to the more sentimental, such as "Million Reasons", during which she played the piano in the middle of the stage.

According to People Magazine, the highly energetic show began with Gaga descending from the rafters to a standing ovation as her earlier hits like Just Dance, Poker Face and LoveGame began to play. The video ends with the girl saying, "Hello, Gaga".
