For their performance on the CBS concert special One Last Time in 2021, musical legends Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga have been added as last-minute Emmy nominees.
Although both celebrities were initially overlooked for the Outstanding Variety Special (Pre-Recorded) category, they have now joined the project's producers, which also include Bennett's son, Danny, and Gaga's longtime manager, Bobby Campbell.
Due to Bennett's ongoing fight with Alzheimer's illness, Gaga and Bennet's performance also served as the impetus for the debut of their most recent jazz album, "Love For Sale."
Her 2011 concert video Lady Gaga Presents: The Monster Ball Tour at Madison Square Garden and 2014's Tony Bennett & Lady Gaga: Cheek to Cheek Live both received Emmy nominations. Tony Bennett Live by Request: A Valentine's Special from 1996 and Tony Bennett: An American Classic from 2006 are both TV programmes for which Gaga Bennett has received two Emmys.
The host for the 74th Primetime Emmy Awards ceremony has not yet been announced, and it will take place on Monday, September 22, at the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles.
