Tony Bennett may not seem like the typical Super Bowl halftime show performer, but it sounds like Lady Gaga is hoping to recruit him for 2017!
Gaga might be bringing jazz to the Super Bowl in February. A new report states that Bennett might be in talks to join Gaga at the upcoming halftime show.
"At the top of her list is incorporating Tony in the set," an industry source told the New York Daily News in a Tuesday report.
Gaga and Bennett teamed up for a duet jazz album in 2014, Cheek to Cheek, which won the pair a Grammy for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album last year. But would this infusion of jazz fit in with the exciting energy of the Super Bowl?
"The issue would be fitting in a classic standard with the upbeat pop show she is planning, but Tony is still energetic and boasts one of the greatest voices ever," the source added. "There is no two ways about it - a duet would be one of the greatest moments ever in halftime show history."
Another veteran act might be joining Gaga as well next year: The Rolling Stones. "There has been talk about the (Rolling) Stones returning, too," according to the report. "Mick (Jagger) and Keith (Richards) are on a promo push for their new album and they share the same label (Universal), so anything could happen."
Gaga has performed with The Rolling Stones before, with the eccentric pop star joining the legendary band in concert in 2012 to sing "Gimme Shelter" with Jagger.
Gaga has her fifth studio album, Joanne, coming out next week, which is expected to be more toned down and universal than her most recent pop album, 2013's EDM-heavy ARTPOP. Gaga said in interviews that the NFL booked her for the Super Bowl after she played Joanne for them.
