So did Lady Gaga trick millions of TV viewers into thinking she jumped 260 feet down into Houston's NRG Stadium? Well yeah sort of, but it doesn't mean her stunt was any less impressive.
Gaga's performance on the roof (and subsequent jump) was pre-recorded. Cameras inside the stadium clearly catch the drop. As you can see below, cameras picked up Gaga suspended halfway over the middle of the stadium.
Still gotta give her a ton of credit. No stunt doubles, she did it all herself.
