The party continued Tuesday night in Washington, D.C. as Lady Gaga – and a surprise guest in Tony Bennett – performed at the final inaugural ball to celebrate President Obama’s second swearing-in ceremony.
Lady Gaga – real name Stefani Germanotta – re-tweeted some photos from the event, which was held for campaign staffers at the Washington Convention Center. Following remarks from President Obama and Joe Biden, Gaga – wearing a white outfit reminiscent of Glinda the Good Witch - took to the stage and sang some of her biggest hits, including Born This Way and Edge of Glory.
At the end of her set, the legendary Tony Bennett, 86, surprised the crowd by joining Gaga, 26, on stage for a duet on The Lady is a Tramp. (They first recorded the Rodgers & Hart classic together in 2011 for Bennett’s Duets II album.) Gaga wrapped up her performance by explaining she had to leave to make it to a concert in Phoenix Wednesday night.
