Gaga was so moved by the large crowd waiting for a glimpse of the singer, she sent them a tasty surprise as a sign of her appreciation.

Posting a photo of her dedicated followers on her Twitter.com account on Thursday (19May11), she wrote, "Someone took this pic (picture) of monsters (fans) outside SNL. My lil (little) babies! This makes me cry. I'm sending treats!"

Gaga is scheduled to perform during the program's star-studded finale, which will be hosted by Justin Timberlake.

It's not the first time Gaga has sent pizza to fans - she showed the same kindness to devotees who waited in the rain last year (10) in anticipation of her appearance on breakfast program The Today Show's Summer Concert Series.
