In today’s Lori’s List, TV critic Lori Rackl reviews “Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga: Cheek to Cheek Live,” airing at 9 p.m. Friday, WTTW-Channel 11.
Sixty years separate pop star Lady Gaga, 28, and legendary crooner Tony Bennett, 88, but this unlikely duo came together for a concert this summer at New York City’s Lincoln Center.
Music Makers — Sun-Times reviews “Cheek to Cheek” CD
Accompanied by a 39-piece orchestra, Gaga and Bennett alternate between duets and solos, singing jazz standards like “Anything Goes” and “It Don’t Mean a Thing,” culled from their collaborative album “Cheek to Cheek.”
This could have easily fallen into creepy/weird territory. But the concert is a classy affair jazzed up by Gaga’s always interesting wardrobe choices, which bounce between ‘70s Cher and Cleopatra.
At least your grandparents will finally know who Lady Gaga is.
