They came, they wore costumes, but they didn't cause any trouble: The Los Angeles Police Department were a little nervous about a Thursday evening appearance in Hollywood by Lady Gaga. The pop star was booked for a live two-song performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live, which is taped just a stone's throw from where a crowd got seriously out of hand Wednesday night at the intersection of Hollywood and Highland.

Fans of the eccentric singer lined the streets, many dressed in tribute to their icon, however while about 2,000 people showed up, Gaga's appearance went off without a problem.
