Watch Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga duet 'Lady Is A Tramp' - video Lady Gaga Tickets

New video sees pair perform 1930s classic

Video: Lady Gaga - 'Happy Birthday Tony Bennett'

The video for Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga's new duet has emerged online.

The pair recorded 'Lady Is A Tramp' for Bennett's current 'Duets II' album, released last month (September), and are the latest in a long line of artists to perform the song.

You can watch the duo trade vocal couplets below, with Gaga playing up to the 'Tramp' role of the song's title, stealing Bennett's handkerchief and slow dancing during the finale.

Frank Sinatra is responsible for perhaps the most recognisable version of 'Lady Is A Tramp', written by Rodgers and Hart for their 1937 musical Babes In Arms.

Ella Fitzgerald, Shirley Bassey[/b], Sammy Davis Jr and [a]Lily Allen, accompanied by Jools Holland's Rhythm And Blues Orchestra, have also recorded famous versions of the standard, while the song featured in the live set of Alice Cooper for a number of years and was also heard in an episode of Glee.

Earlier this year Lady Gaga sent Tony Bennett a video wishing him a happy 85th birthday, while the crooner's duet with Amy Winehouse, 'Body And Soul', was her final recording before her death in July.

Bennett said in a recent interview that he could tell Winehouse wasn't going to overcome her addictions.

Proceeds of 'Body And Soul' will go to the Amy Winehouse Foundation established by her father Mitch.
