“Poker Face” – ’40s Big Band Style Lady Gaga Cover starring Kelley Jakle in her PMJ Debut

Back to all posts >

Since Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett will be teaming up in this year’s Super Bowl Halftime Show, we made our own Gaga / Jazz mashup by turning “Poker Face” into a 1940s Big Band tune, sung by Kelley Jakle from Pitch Perfect 2 in her PMJ debut.  Watch:

The clever lyrics of “Poker Face” seem to take inspiration from Great American Songbook writers like Cole Porter, so imagining it in a jazz nightclub setting isn’t a farfetched notion.  Kelley’s sultry low register brings to mind cabaret stars of the past, and her strong high notes and incredible breath control take this performance to the next level – truly an impressive debut by a rising star.  Kelley is currently filming Pitch Perfect 3, so you’ll also be able to see her in theaters near you later this year!
