The first European Games opened in Azerbaijan on Friday, and Lady Gaga was there to help ring it in with a performance of John Lennon's classic "Imagine."

A video of the performance is now online, showing the Mother Monster singing the ballad to 70,000 people, while playing along on a flower-laden grand piano. 

Her dress and makeup were all very understated by Gaga standards, but that didn't stop her from belting the song out beautifully. Watch it below.
