    Talking I Had No Idea She Was Singing Here

    I love me some Tony Bennett. So when I heard the female vocalist on this track, I thought, damn, she is good. I was shocked to find out who it was.

    She gets my respect.

    They really seemed to be bored while making this video, too...

    I've been a TB fan for decades & the unknown lady in the duet is fantastic in it. Very well done & very, very entertaining...

    Unknown lady? It says Lady GAGA for god's sake. Are you trying to be funny? (you weren't). Gaga has a very good set of pipes. Anyone who has followed her for years knows that.

    Didn't Cyndi Lauper also do this song with Frank Sinatra? She's another one who has a set of pipes.

    Lady Gaga is a true singer and musician.

    She has a huge and impressive voice. I personally think it says something sad about the music business that she never got anywhere until she adopted the name and the persona that goes with it. Someone with a voice like that shouldn't need a gimmick.

    Gaga is a very good vocalist, her theatrics just tend to take away from people noticing. I wish Bennett had asked Kelly Clarkson to perform with him. She did Big Band so well on American Idol and performed at a Tony Bennett tribute concert a few years ago doing an amazing version of his song Because of You (not to be confused with her song by the same name).

    I heard it on internet radio first. They didn't say the names until afterwards. I immediately recognized TB, but not LGG. So I then checked out the video.

    Yes, for all the Madonna comparisons, she does have a good voice. Even better than Madonna's. But I never heard her sing like that before. She actually reminds me of Diane Schuur.
