Lady Gaga Wows Singing “New York, New York” at Sinatra 100 Concert
It sometimes gets lost in all the showmanship, but Lady Gaga is one helluva singer.
On Sunday night, “Mother Monster” once again proved her mettle as a singing powerhouse belting out “New York, New York” at the Sinatra 100: An All-Star Grammy Concert honoring the late Frank Sinatra’s 100 birthday, which falls on December 12.
The Sinatra 100 Concert featured some of today’s biggest singing stars, such as Sam Smith, Celine Dion, and Carrie Underwood. John Legend and Katherine McPhee started off the star-studded night singing a medley of some of Sinatra’s best-known hits. Even longtime Sinatra friend and legend in his own right, Tony Bennett performed. But it was Lady Gaga, who stole the show as she closed out the night.
As she rose up from below the stage, Lady Gaga was Sinatra re-born. In her sleek black tuxedo and Old Blue Eye’s signature fedora, she completely embodied the famous crooner, even emulating his mannerisms and movements. As she removed her hat towards the end of the song, Lady Gaga revealed a short haircut, quite reminiscent of the slick-back look Sinatra favored.
The crowd and the Twittersphere weren’t the only ones absolutely loving Lady Gaga’s performance.
Perhaps the biggest thumbs-up of all, after the tribute, Frank Sinatra’s daughter, Nancy, happily posed for pictures with the six-time Grammy Award winner. Her dad would definitely be proud.
