With the release of Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett’s new album, “Love For Sale” on Friday, the pair were featured in a segment on 60 Minutes. This special interview gave fans a look into the making of the new jazz album and behind the scenes of Bennett’s “Final Act”. 

Anderson Cooper led the interview as he spoke to Gaga and others about working with Bennett as he battles Alzheimer’s Disease.

News of the legendary jazz singer’s dementia came back in February of this year. Gaga and Bennett released their renditions of classic Cole Porter songs as Bennett’s final album. The duo also performed together in a two-night concert event titled “One Last Time” in New York City. The concerts which were held in August, were the final performances of Bennett’s timeless career. 

Gaga spoke to Cooper about the changes she has had to make when interacting with the legendary crooner. She expressed that keeping it simple is important, questions which he could reply with “yes” or “no” were easier for Bennett to answer than asking him which song he’d prefer to sing. Gaga also noted how Bennett would transform when the music would start, he would know exactly what he was doing and she was mindful “not to get in the way of that.” 

The "One Last Time" concerts were indeed revealed to be an emotional experience. Footage from the event showed Tony lighting up as soon as the curtains rose. When Gaga made her entrance, he greeted her by saying her name - Gaga later revealed that this was the first time he had done so "in a long time".

One Last Time: An Evening With Lady Gaga & Tony Bennett, the concert filmed at Radio City Music Hall, is set to air Sunday, November 28 @ 8PM ET/PT on CBS.
