Lady Gaga & Tony Bennett did an interview and performance on "The Colbert Report" with Stephen Colbert last night.

Check out the performance from "Cheek To Cheek" above.-DocFB

Diagnosis: Remember when all Gaga performances were a "must see"? This is what happens when you appear on every single show. Granted, this was her first time on Colbert, but she has been everywhere for over a year. I dig the Liza Minelli look but we need to miss you for a little bit.

I think I am the only one not surprised by this.  Ratings for the 11 P.M. hour of cable were released and Chelsea Handler's "Chelsea Lately" show is beating the "Conan O'Brien" show soundly.

The ratings show Chelsea with over a 100,000 more viewers on a nightly basis than Conan.  For those at Conan watching the ratings, they did see Chelsea creeping up on them, but no changes were made.

Prince @ Montreux July 18th, 2009 © 2009 DMY

Prince performed 2 shows at Montreux over the weekend as we told you first a while ago.  From what we have seen, it was a success.  Would we expect anything less from him?

He did 2 90 minute shows and a few songs twice. Rumor and rumor only has it right now that the songs were done twice for a possible DVD release.  Wait...what happened to that Coachella DVD?  Well, we will see. 

Prince performed classic tracks as well as new ones from his latest 3 CD set.  Heck, for good measure, he even did 2 songs off his protege's CD.

Prince was also all over pop culture this week.  From a mention on "The Colbert Report" on Monday to 2 mentions on ESPN's Espy Awards. Samuel L. Jackson even dressed up as Prince during the award show, circa the Purple Rain era with purple studded jacket and wearing those "I Would Die 4 U" pants.  Mr. Jackson. Whew. Later in the show, Quarterback superstar Peyton Manning pretended to have a conversation with Prince over the phone.

Even the Home Run Derby had a Princely moment with Prince Fielder won the Home Run Derby with some music by, you guessed it, Prince playing. Not to mention every tacky sports journalist using a Prince metaphor on that night's news cast.

Prince, the pop culture icon and the Montreux funk man, all in one.-Dr.FB
