The 'Marry The Night' singer presented a special award to Nigel Lythgoe at this year's International Emmys.
Lady Gaga made a surprise appearance at the 39th International Emmy Awards last night (21st November) in New York City.
The 'Born This Way' singer attended the television awards ceremony to present American Idol executive producer Nigel Lythgoe with an honorary Founders Award.
Gaga, dressed in a floor length black dress split to her thigh, thanked Lythgoe for "all of the early opportunities he gave me to perform on TV", as well for his extensive work with the charity Idol Gives Back.
"He always spoke poetically about the pursuit of widening the boundaries of love and acceptance in TV," Gaga added, reports The Telegraph.
While accepting his award on stage Lythgoe also praised the pop star for being, "The most creatively talented woman working in show business right now".
Lady Gaga attended the event shortly after opening her Gaga's Workshop exhibition at Barneys flagship store in Madison Avenue.
