On Wednesday night (December 5), Jack Antonoff hosted his fifth annual Ally Coalition Talent Show benefit concert at the Town Hall in New York City. During the star-studded affair, the Bleachers frontman teamed up with Lana Del Rey to perform what she described as a couple "country songs." Antonoff accompanied the singer, as she belted out two tracks reportedly titled “I Must Be Stupid for Being So Happy” and “Hey Blue Baby.” The pair also performed “How to Disappear,” which Rey has played live but hasn't released, and the previously released “Venice Bitch.”
The collaboration couldn't come as too much of a surprise, as Antonoff is producing Rey's upcoming album, Norman F**king Rockwell.

Former Vampire Weekend member Rostam and Regina Spektor also performed at the concert, as well as Hayley Kiyoko, who surprised the crowd with Taylor Swift. Together, the two performed a stripped down version of "Delicate" off Swift's latest album, Reputation.
In its fifth year, the benefit concert continues to support the LGBTQ organization by raising funds and awareness. In a statement on their website, The Ally Coalition says, "Through tours, special events, and online campaigns, we highlight systemic inequality, organizations supporting LGBTQ youth, and opportunities for fans to engage."
