    Tony Bennett Comments on Carrie At Grammy Rehearsals :)

    Carrie & Tony are also presenting Best New Artist, as well as performing!



    Tony Bennett and Carrie Underwood do Grammy duet - Boston.com



    LOS ANGELES—Tony Bennett performed on the very first Grammy Awards, and as he returns for the 54th show this Sunday, the singer says it never gets old.



    "I've been on every single one that we've had through the years," Bennett said Friday after rehearsing a duet with Carrie Underwood. "And what I love about it ... this is the only place where all the performers get together in one weekend, and it's so great to see old friends and new guys that are coming up."



    The 85-year-old entertainer said he knows most of the artists, "and the new ones, I'm interested in."



    He and Underwood are set to perform the 1924 classic "It Had to Be You." Underwood, 28, called Bennett "America's most enduring artist."



    Indeed, Bennett will be celebrated for his own classic song, the 50-year-old hit "I Left My Heart in San Francisco," in the City by the Bay next week.



    After running through their Grammy performance three times, Bennett told Underwood, "It was beautiful singing with you."

    "She's beautiful and she sings great and she's so popular," he said as he came off stage. "It's just a wonderful experience to be on the show."



    The pair is also set to present the award for best new artist. Up for the honor are The Band Perry, Bon Iver, J. Cole, Nicki Minaj and Skrillex.

    Could Tony Bennett be any sweeter??? This duet will be Grammy magic. And I hope the Band Perry wins Best New Artist - it will be a real coup for country if they do because didn't Zac Brown win it last year?

    Thanks for posting Tee!

    They won it two years ago. Last year was that artist no one heard of before or since, I might add!!! Last year was the year Bieber thought he should win and he made a sour face!!!!

    I'm not a fan of Tony Bennett, to be honest. But that was a great comment about Carrie. Makes me happy. He's right. She is amazing. ♥

    I can't say I have ever been a fan of Tony Bennet myself, even though I have heard his music for a long time, but he is truly a legend. For his kind of music, he is one of the best, so Carrie was very fortunate to have him in her corner. If you have watched the video when she sang The sound of music, they show him towards the end shaking his head at her performance in a very good way, so he has been a fan for some time.

    Aww, that's so sweet! I love it. Tony is truly a class act. Will we only see Tony and Carrie performing, or this a group performance to celebrate his duets album?

    Sounds like it will be an abbreviated version of IHTBY, than the presenting of the BNA grammy. Of course everything may be turn upside down w/ addition of the tribute for Whitney requiring them to revamp their schedule.
