Gaga joined the band's lead singer Bono from behind her piano to sing "Ordinary Love," written in honor of the late Nelson Mandela for the 2013 film Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom.

Entertainment Weekly reports U2 has taken up a residency at Madison Square Garden, performing each night in New York with an entire roster of celebrities, from Paul McCartney, Nile Rodgers and Alicia Keys to Jon Bon Jovi and even the Roots along with Jimmy Fallon.

The eight nights of performances are all part of U2's "Innocence + Experience 2015" tour, which comes following the release of the band's 13th studio album, Songs of Innocence

According to Madison Square Garden's website, the band wanted each performance to be unique. "We are going to try to have a completely different feeling from night one to night two, and have some fun playing with the idea of innocence and experience. More to be revealed!" Bono said, according to the website.
