She was seen with prosthetic horns and ridges on her forehead, cheek bones, and shoulders for a month and during the media promo following the debut performance of "Born This Way" at the Grammy Awards. The rebirth theme was replaced with a more Roman Catholic style during the promotion of "Judas" It was then followed by manly Versace archive pieces and many variation of a teal hair around the release of "The Edge of Glory". For "Yoü and I", Gaga returned to long blonde hair. For the final single, "Marry the Night", Gaga used a light mint color for her hair and even clothes. At that time, Gaga made her first appearance in India and recorded her first television special entitled, "A Very Gaga Thanksgiving" which aired on ABC.
