New Music: Lady Gaga "Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down)"

This performance is from GREAT PERFORMANCES “Tony Bennett & Lady Gaga: Cheek to Cheek LIVE!” which premieres on PBS October 24th.

Smokin-hot, latin-tinged jazz cover of Cher's "Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down)" by Lady Gaga, in full-on Cher drag.

There's a lot that COULD have gone wrong here. Without the musical sensibility Gaga brings, plus her commitment to the lyrics without commenting, she wins the day.

This is really pretty great. I love covers that not only re-invent, but succeed in the new exploration.

Whatever doubts you think you have about Gaga, she delivers here.

p.s. you know Cher is a very vocal fan of Lady Gaga, so when the queen approves... :)

The Tony Bennett/Lady Gaga collaboration album - Cheek To Cheek - is available now.
