UNION SQUARE - Lady Gaga lookalikes did the "Bad Romance" claw dance on Friday to win tickets to see the real Lady Gaga perform at Madison Square Garden later that night.
Bravo Pizza and Pizza Packet threw a slice party after Lady Gaga delivered Ray's pizza to fans waiting on line Thursday night to see her Friday morning "Today" show performance.
The Union Square pizzeria also gave away three pairs of tickets to the most "Gaga" fan.
Sporting caution tape, jeweled underwear and pink and platinum blond wigs, 5 contestants vied for the tickets.
"I'm so excited, I've never seen her live," said winner Renee Cole, 26. "I tried to get tickets, but they were sold out."
Cole said her dress was originally used in a Broadway show. She was considering wearing the spangled bodice and full skirt, which she got from a flea market, to the concert this evening.
Decked out in caution tape with a Red Bull can taped to her head, Lisa Abbel came in second. The 17-year-old said her inspiration was Lady Gaga's outfit in her "Telephone."
Lyn Alyson, 24, saw the Friday morning 'Today' performance before entering the look alike contest.
"This is pretty awesome," said the third place finisher, who's a singer, dancer and actress from Brooklyn. "I don't usually win things."
Alyson was wearing a jeweled bra she bought for a photo shoot, and black hot pants.
"I saw her play in small clubs before she blew up," Alyson said.
Lady Gaga is scheduled to finish a three-show run at Madison Square Garden on Friday night.
