Smooth as Jazz: Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga Sing "Cheek to Cheek" and Bring Down the 2015 Grammy Stage

Lady Gaga has given a lot of credit to her duet partner Tony Bennett for having saved her career with their latest release Cheek to Cheek. While that may not be entirely true, the unique pair has rallied massive support and their latest Grammy performance only adds to their rise. The pair sang the classic "Cheek to Cheek" on the 2015 Grammy stage and were as smooth as jazz.

The ARTPOP diva may be known for her lavish and outlandish fashion sense, but perhaps the mayor of the meatdress decided to focus more on her chops. And what better partner to sing beside than the ever-beloved Tony Bennett?

Bennett is already a man on top -- "I Left My Heart in San Francisco" is the city's theme song and has been accepted by listeners of all stripes. Yes, he might be the least judgmental and close-minded artist out there, especially to so willingly collaborate with an artist far from his own.

The two put on an astounding rendition of the classic "Cheek to Cheek," backed by smooth and timely musicians, everyone dressed impeccably to the key. For Gaga and Bennett, the performance came off as just another night out -- that is, it flowed out of them with ease.

Whether you are a fan of the uptown swing or prefer your Taylor Swifts of the world, it is hard to slam the duo after last night. The album is out now with an exclusive review from us here at Classicalite.

So it is our pleasure to bring you Gaga and Bennett below:
