Lady Gaga And Tony Bennett Perform “Winter Wonderland” On ‘Good Morning America’: Watch
Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett performed their version of holiday classic “Winter Wonderland” on Christmas Day on Good Morning America — having surprised fans with their rendition earlier in December.
Like with their jazz standards album Cheek to Cheek and the ensuing live performances, Lady Gaga has tried her best to sell the transformation she underwent this year. With a floor-length fur stole draped over one shoulder, she belted every note, flaunting her chops to an audience that was likely grossed out by her meat dress at one time. Meanwhile, Bennett sang with an ease that could only come from performing this way for more than 50 years.
Just when Little Monsters grew used to seeing Lady Gaga channel old Hollywood glamour, though, she appeared in the studio alongside Chic lead guitarist Nile Rodgers and songwriter Diane Warren — for what, though, she has yet to say. Later that week, though, Lady Gaga revealed that she was working on her follow-up to 2013’s “acid-making record” ARTPOP. She didn’t dive into specifics, though she did call the album “my old self as a cadaver.”
It all seems just as curious as when she made herself over in 2014 to look like disco queen Bianca Jagger, Joan Crawford when she was a ’30s and ’40s-era screen siren and then jazz singer Ginger Rogers. Surely, though, Gaga’s GMA performance is proof that she can pull more off than most.
