Little Monsters rejoice! Lady Gaga is back to doing what she loves best—performing.

Turning up Thursday night at jazz trumpeter Brian Newman's gig at the Gramercy Park Hotel in New York City, the pop superstar reportedly wowed a small crowd when she joined the musician for an impromptu rendition of "Someone to Watch Over Me."

"Thanks to the 1&only @ladygaga for coming out to @GPHhotel tonight an singing a song!!" Newman tweeted after the show at the Rose Bar.

It was Lady Gaga's first time on stage since she was forced to cancel the remainder of her Born This Way Ball trek to undergo hip surgery in February after suffering a tear in her right hip during a concert earlier this year.

No word from Gaga's rep if and when she might resume her usually rigorous touring schedule.

The "Marry the Night" singer and the bandleader are close pals as the latter is best known as Lady Gaga's go-to-jazz player having performed with her on the Today show, ABC's A Very Gaga Thanksgiving as well as in the studio. The hitmaker has also been known to drop in on his shows in the past, including a 2011 appearance at the Oak Room
