Great Performances: Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga Cheek to Cheek

If you can pick this up at a later showing on PBS or on demand, GET IT!

It's GREAT! They had 2 great bands and an orchestra with lotsa strings.

Gaga looked to be trying to channel Cher so much with outfits, she sang a ballad version of "Bang, Bang."

She got the emphasis wrong on "Lush Life," but she has the range.

Methinks that Tony is wearing hairpiece.

A quick search on the TiVo app doesn't show any upcoming performances.

Crap! I'm sorry I missed this.

They appeared on CBS News' Sunday Morning about a month ago.

Transcript: Tony Bennett & Lady Gaga: A musical love supreme

There are links to videos, including a link to SoundCloud for "Anything Goes".

Set up an ARWL. (That's how I got Kate Bush on SNL.)

Or stream it online (HD quality available if you sign in):

It's likely that you'll see this repeated somewhere around the time of your local station's pledge week, so the ARWL is probably not a bad idea.

I set up a keyword WL using "Bennett" and "Gaga" as my 2 keywords. What else did others do?

For those who have them, the PBS channel for Plex and Roku will let you see past shows on demand once you create an account with your local station identified.

We're lucky in the Bay Area because we have lots of stations. Appreciate the heads-up.

Most people dont know that she trained as a jazz singer but ended up going pop. She showed some of her jazz abilities last year in her Christmas special. She was also great on Tony's Duets II album and video. There are reports that they are going to do a tour together. I have to say they had a great chemistry between them on stage. You could tell by the way she was always touching him.

I have the album (from iTunes, which has one more track than Amazon MP3) - it's pretty good, though in some spots you can hear Tony straining.

She was a lounge piano singer before she figured out the gimmick(s).
The word is that she might stick with singing standards now.

Tony said she's one of the bests singers he's worked with - which I find hard to believe but OK.

The flirting she was doing was choreographed, including him pointing to his wedding ring.

I don't think Tony has lost a thing in his singing quality. Sinatra hisself said that Tony Bennett was the best singer in the business.

The main thing is that Tony's son and manager, Danny, looks for ways for Tony to catch on with younger audiences, which is how Tony was "rediscovered" on MTV Unplugged.

yep, his son has really done a great job of running his career. I was surprised how many younger people were in the audience for their show together

"Live" as in "live in concert", not "happening live at this moment".

Here in Chicago I only see Gaga and Bennett, amongst many others, at the tree trimming in New York. No two person performance.

I'm in DC. Both local PBS affiliates are showing it now through at least 12/4. I'm just hoping they're not cut up by fundraising drives.

There are snippets on the ATV PBS app. In cheek-to-cheek, Gaga looks like she's channeling Liza Minnelli.
