    Tune In Alert!

    Tony Bennett & Lady Gaga: Cheek to Cheek LIVE!, featuring an evening of classic jazz standards in both vocal duets and solo performances, will air on THIRTEEN's Great Performances, Friday, October 24 at 9PM ET on PBS. (Check local listings.)

    Taped at Jazz at Lincoln Center's Frederick P. Rose Hall on July 28, each song was handpicked by the artists, and features classic selections from the Great American Songbook. At press time, the song roster is scheduled to include "It Don't Mean a Thing (If It Ain't Got That Swing)," "Sophisticated Lady," "Lush Life," "Anything Goes," and the title track from their forthcoming album, "Cheek to Cheek."

    You know what time it is. Time to set a calendar alert so you remember to watch or DVR this shit. And by "shit," we mean Gaga x Tony awesomeness and crossing of the generational divide.

    Tony Bennett & Lady Gaga: Cheek to Cheek LIVE! was filmed in front of a live audience of invited guests, many of whom were students involved in arts programs in NYC public schools.

    Gaga is so invested in the arts and keeping them going.

    The new special will air as part of the PBS Arts Fall Festival 2014.

    With set and lighting design by Robert Wilson, the stars are joined by a 39-piece orchestra conducted by Jorge Calandrelli.

    Cheek to Cheek, the collaborative jazz album from Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett, will be released on Streamline/Columbia/Interscope Records on Tuesday, September 23.

    Will you be tuning in to watch Gaga x Tony?
