Smelly Cat is undoubtedly one of the most iconic musical moments of the hit American sitcom FRIENDS and fans were excited as it was featured in the HBO max Special reunion episode. However, viewers were treated to an upgraded version of the much-loved ditty when Phoebe, played by Lisa Kudrow, was joined on the set by popstar Lady Gaga in the reunion special.

Kudrow sat down at the recreated Central Perk and sang the song, strumming her guitar, almost 26 years since that first performance.

After singing the first stanza of the song alone, Gaga popped into the coffee house, with a guitar in hand and joined Kudrow in the rendition of the song. “I love ‘Smelly Cat,’ it’s one of my favourite songs,” Gaga said.

The duo was also joined by a gospel choir. After the performance, Kudrow, who was still in character, mumbled: “I still think it’s better when it’s just me.”

Kudrow first sang “Smelly Cat” on the second season of “Friends,” in an episode entitled “The One With the Baby on the Bus.” The duo’s performance delighted many on the internet. Take a look at some of the reactions here:
