Lady Gaga’s Emotional Tribute To Tony Bennet

Lady Gaga’s Emotional Tribute To Tony Bennet

Lady Gaga enhanced the  glitz and glam of Sunday’s  Grammys 2022 . Gaga enchanted the audience with her heartfelt homage to musical veteran Tony Bennett, who had a five-decade career. Bennet formally resigned from performing in 2021 due to his Alzheimer's disease, which made it difficult for him to continue. Gaga performed “Love for Sale” and “Do I Love You” from her debut album “Love for Sale”, which she co-wrote with long-time friend Tony Bennet.

The legend opened Gaga's performance with a video, saying, "Hi everyone, please welcome Lady Gaga!"  According to Variety, the Grammy winner then set the house on fire with her electrifying interpretation of “Love for Sale” while wearing an exquisite pastel midi gown with a huge bow in the back.

Furthermore, the singer reduced the tempo and began her piano-heavy version of “Do I Love You” with an emotional vintage video of Bennet and Gaga recording the song in the studio playing in the backdrop. Billie Eilish, who was openly hooting and hyping up the performance, was one of the many celebs in the audience that shouted for Gaga as she slayed the stage.

Meanwhile, the album's collaboration between Bennet and Gaga has been nominated for five Grammys this year, including Album of the Year and Traditional Pop Vocal Album, while their track “I Get a Kick Out of You” has been nominated for Record of the Year, Pop Duo/Group Performance, and music video.

Gaga closed her performance by recreating a photo of the two that had been placed in the background, resting her hand on Tony's shoulder and saying, "I love you Tony, we miss you."
