She's called Lady GaGa, as her name suggests she's a bit of a Queen fan and she's a 22-year-old singer-songwriter from New York. Her debut single, 'Just Dance', is a terrific electropop track that, to nick an expression from Kylie, "goes off like a frog in a sock". It's already been No.1 in Canada, cracked the Aussie top three and, well, performed fairly respectably on the Billboard Hot 100 given how dancey it is.
And there's more. Lady GaGa - real name Stefani Germanotta - has been writing songs for the new Pussycat Dolls and Britney albums and recorded a track called 'Big Girl Now' with New Kids On The Block. In all likelihood we're going to be hearing quite a bit from her over the next 12 months or so.
'Just Dance' doesn't have a UK release date yet, but there's nothing to stop us from watching the video now, is there? It's stylish, sexy and very trendy-looking... up until the moment where Lady GaGa decides she'd quite like to hump an inflatable whale. You know, even Madonna never did that.
