There's a chemistry between the two, and this Friday night the pair will show fans at their sold-out show at Borgata Event Center just why they're such a good fit together.
Bennett and Gaga first met at the Robin Hood Foundation gala in NYC in 2011, following her performance of Nat King Cole's "Orange Colored Sky". Bennett then asked Gaga to sing a duet with him on his album "Duets II". They ended up recording their version of "The Lady is a Tramp". Next they talked about doing a jazz album together. The final result was their duet album titled "Cheek to Cheek', which was finally released last September. The album went on to win a Grammy for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album. That led to their Cheek to Cheek Tour, which makes a stop in AC this Friday night at Borgata. It will be exciting to see Bennett and Gaga performing live together...Cheek to Cheek. :)
