Lady Gaga opened the Children In Need Rocks concert in typical fashion with a trio of her biggest hits.
The world's hottest performer topped the stellar line-up of music industry royalty put together by Take That singer Gary Barlow.
And the pop icon whetted her followers' appetites by posting on Twitter that after her Children In Need concert she would release a clip from her new music video.
"I will release 1 min 47 seconds & 18 frames of "MARRY THE NIGHT: THE PRELUDE PATHÉTIQUE" The full prelude is 7 min 33 seconds & 15 frames."
True to her word Gaga posted a link shortly after her performance.
The footage reveals the singer being wheeled into surgery by two nurses.
Despite fans perhaps hoping to hear a snippet of the tune, the singer only delivers a spoken monologue over the video.
Reports have suggested that the video is autobiographical.
