Lady Gaga had a dance off with the Rock ‘n’ Roll King of Moves Mick Jagger as she made a cameo on stage at Rolling Stones’ surprise star-studded gig on Thursday.
Supermodels, Hollywood actors and singers gathered to celebrate the launch of the band’s album Hackney Diamonds at west side club Racket NYC.
Legendary catwalk queens Christie Brinkley, 69, and Christy Turlington, 54, brought along their daughters Sailor Brinkley Cook and Grace Burns with Daniel Craig, 55, and his wife Rachel Weisz, 53, also attending.
Much to the crowds delight the band – Mick, 80, Keith Richards, 79, and Ronnie Wood, 79 – hit the stage ninety minutes into the party and were joined by Gaga for the encore.
The Just Dance hitmaker, 37, was there to showcase her duet with the band, Sweet Sounds of Heaven, from the album.

Gaga tried to give Mick a run for his money as she busted some moves on stage while belting out the new hit.
Mick matched her energy and showed off his signature moves as the duo harmonized together in front of the star-studded crowd.
Gaga commanded attention for her surprise cameo. The songstress dazzled in a red and black sequined jumpsuit with flared legs and a plunging neckline.
She gave her petite frame a boost in black platform shoes.
Mick, meanwhile, had on a checked jacket which he took off mid performance.
The late Tina Turner previously revealed in an interview with Daily Mail that Mick learned to dance from his mother.
She said: ‘Mick wanted to dance – and I was a dancer – but he never gave me the credit! He said his mother taught him how to dance. But we worked with him in the dressing room, me and the girls, and we taught him how to Pony.’
Hackney Diamonds, which was released on Friday, is the Rolling Stones’ 31st studio album and the first without their late bandmate Charlie Watts.
Charlie passed away aged 80 in August 2021, surrounded by his family in hospital – weeks after he pulled out of US tour to recover from emergency heart surgery.

They kicked off the gig with one of their classic New York theme songs Shattered.
The band first blazed through a six-song set that included the Hackney Diamonds tracks Angry, Whole Wide World and Bite My Head Off, along with such Stones classics as Tumbling Dice and Jumping Jack Flash.
On top of that, they treated the intimate crowd to classics Tumbling Dice and jumping Jack Flash.
The Stones were joined by new drummer Steve Jordan, bassist Darryl Jones, keyboardist Matt Clifford, and backing singer Chanel Haynes for the one-off set.
The hitmakers showed they are raring to get back out on the road and are hoping to tour the album – their first comprising all new material in 18 years – next year.
The party proved to be a star-studded event that brought actors, comedian, musicians and models together for one epic night.
Leonardo DiCaprio’s ex-girlfriend Camila Morrone, 26, looked ultra chic as she arrived in an all-black outfit.
The actress rocked a busty dress, knee-high boots and a blazer that she wore over her shoulder.
Comedians Trevor Noah and Chris Rock were seen chatting near the venue’s packed bar.
Elvis Costello stepped out in a black leather bomber jacket for a night out with his wife of 20-years Diana Krall.
Bond star Daniel was spotted wearing a bright cardigan as he attended the concert with his wife Rachel.
At the after-party, Keith was seen holding a funny looking cigarette – despite his previous declarations that he had dropped the habit.
The rocker gave up his heroin habit in 1978 and eventually stopped using cocaine after an accident in 2006 in which he fell out of a tree, requiring brain surgery and a metal plate in his skull.
‘I’ve given up everything now – which is a trip in itself’, he said afterwards.
But he also joked the secret to his longevity was treating his body like a ‘temple’ by only taking ‘high quality drugs’.
He said in his memoir Life: ‘When I was taking dope, I was fully convinced that my body is my temple. I can do anything I want with it and nobody can tell me yea or nay.’
The Rolling Stones Hackney Diamonds review by ADRIAN THRILLS
The Rolling Stones: Hackney Diamonds
Verdict: Back with a Bang
The supporting cast includes Elton John and Paul McCartney, but it is the energetic artistry of Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood — combined age 235 — that steals the thunder on the first album of new Stones songs in 18 years.
They call themselves ‘the greatest rock and roll band in the world’, and this is a late-career masterpiece.
They made the 12-track album — its title is Cockney slang for shattered glass — with a new collaborator, Andrew Watt, and the New Yorker, 33, does an excellent job. He adds modern touches, but respects familiar strengths.
Recent single Angry is a weak link, a Start Me Up pastiche with a by-numbers feel, but the other rock numbers frame the band at their best. Charlie Watts, who died in 2021, added distinctive drums to two songs in his final sessions.
Get Close recalls 1972’s Exile On Main Street, and McCartney supplies a distorted bass solo on Bite My Head Off.
But it’s the big ballads that give this overdue return its five-star rating. Jagger is fully engaged on the lovely, country-ish Depending On You. Richards sings lead on Tell Me Straight.
Penultimate track Sweet Sounds Of Heaven, a duet between Jagger and Lady Gaga, is a tour de force — an epic that evokes 1969’s You Can’t Always Get What You Want.
If this turns out to be the last time — and I wouldn’t bet on that — the Stones will go out in style.

Speaking on stage, Keith reflected on Charlie’s death, saying: ‘Ever since Charlie has been gone it’s different, he’s number four.’
The guitarist continued: ‘He’s missing, of course he’s missed incredibly, but thanks to Charlie we have Steve Jordan who was his recommendation if anything should happen to him.

‘He’s been a friend of ours so he was a natural progression, it would have been a lot harder without Charlie’s blessing.’
Sir Mick revealed during the show that there are 12 tracks on the album and while most featured Jordan, there are two tracks recorded in 2019 with Charlie.
On the song Live By The Sword the trio are backed by both Charlie and former bassist Bill Wyman, reuniting the original rhythm section of The Rolling Stones.
The second song featuring Charlie is named Mess It Up.
The London-born drummer joined the then-fledgling band in 1963 after meeting Mick, Keith and Brian Jones while playing in rhythm and blues clubs.
Along with Mick and Keith, he featured on every one of the band’s studio albums. He was widely regarded as one of the greatest drummers of all time.
Hackney Diamonds includes several collaborations with the likes of Lady Gaga, Elton John and Paul McCartney.
