Lady Gaga was seen breaking down in tears after her performance at Feb. 5’s Super Bowl — hugging her family in an emotional moment that followed the massive show.
Gaga was seen in photos hugging her parents, Joe and Cynthia Germanotta, as well as her sister, Natali.
The whole family was seen embracing in an emotional, touching hug following the performance, in which the pop star sang a 13-minute medley of her biggest hits. The show featured a number of sparkly outfits and a glamorous introduction via a harness that lifted her in the air.
Many celebrities praised Gaga’s performance in tweets, including her frequent collaborator Tony Bennett.
“Lady … the most super thing about the Super Bowl was you … just amazing!” Bennett tweeted, Daily Mail reported.
“You don’t need anyone else on stage when you are @ladygaga smashed it. #GOGAGA,” Joe Jonas tweeted.
Many people applauded Gaga for focusing on entertainment and avoiding any political commentary in her performance.
“I don’t like her music or agree with her political views, but she gave a great show and steered clear of political BS, so I give her great kudos for all of that. Also seeing her sincerity in these pictures of her and her family makes me want to listen to someone like this to understand her perspective with political thoughts,” one Daily Mail reader commented.
ABC News reported that following the performance, Gaga’s sales surged over 1,000 percent on the day of the show alone.
The singer reportedly sold 150,000 albums and songs digitally on Super Bowl Sunday, as opposed to 15,000 units the day before.
“Incredible performance by my friend Lady Gaga,” former Vice President Joe Biden tweeted in response to the show. “You amaze me — and not just onstage. Proud to work with you to end sexual assault.”
Even Ivanka Trump, daughter of President Donald Trump, praised Gaga for her “incredible performance.”
