Album: A Katy or A Gaga
Released: November 5, 2013
By: Lady Gaga
Sung by: Artie, Blaine, Marley, Ryder, and Sam
Place: The April Rhodes Civic Pavilion
Episode: A Katy or A Gaga

Applause by Lady Gaga is featured in A Katy or A Gaga, the fourth episode of Season Five. It is sung by Artie, Blaine, Marley, Ryder, and Sam.

Sam is desperate to win the affection of the school nurse, Penny Owen. Since the week's assignment for the "Katys" is to perform a Gaga song, Sam decides that he needs to be controversial, creative and unique. He wants to find a way to convince the whole school to watch it but despite Sam's teaser, only a few people (New Directions, Becky, Will, Stoner Brett, and Penny) arrive at the auditorium at 3:30 to watch the performance. Artie, Blaine, Ryder and Sam wear Gaga inspired costumes while Marley wears a Katy costume, much to Mr. Schue's confusion and annoyance. Due to the fact that Marley has chosen to wear a "Katy" costume rather than a "Gaga" inspired costume, her teammates are not very happy with her. Marley says she won't compromise who she is for an assignment-or any guy. Will suspends her from Glee club for the rest of the week for her decision, claiming she has not completely fulfilled the assignment and has allowed her "personal agenda" to get in the way. 

Lyrics

Sam:
I stand here waiting
For you to bang the gong
To crash the critic saying,
"Is it right or is it wrong?"

If only fame had an IV
Baby, could I bear (Bear, bear)
Being away from you
I've found the vein, put it in here

Blaine:
I live for the applause, applause, applause

Artie (with Ryder):
I live for the applause-plause
Live for the applause-plause
(Live for the)

Ryder:
Way that you cheer and scream for me
The applause, applause, applause

Marley with Artie, Blaine, Ryder and Sam:
Give me that thing that I love (Sam: I’ll turn the lights on)
Put your hands up, make ‘em touch, touch (Blaine and Sam: Make it real loud)
Give me that thing that I love (Sam: I’ll turn the lights on)
Put your hands up, make ‘em touch, touch (Blaine: Make it real loud)

A-P-P-L-A-U-S-E (Artie: Make it real loud)
A-P-P-L-A-U-S-E (Marley and Artie: Put your hands up, make 'em touch, touch)

Sam:
I've overheard your theory
‘Nostalgia’s for geeks!’

Ryder:
I guess sir, if you say so
Some of us just like to read

Artie:
One second I’m a Koons
Then suddenly, the Koons is me
Pop culture was in art, now
Art’s in pop culture, in me
