Queen Latifah Brings Class to ‘America’s Got Talent’ On Duet With Tony Bennett

In a stark contrast to many of the more sensational performances and cameos during the ‘America’s Got Talent‘ finale on Wednesday night, Queen Latifah looked eloquent standing next to 85-year-old Tony Bennett as the two sang ‘Who Can I Turn To (Nobody Needs Me).’ The song is included on Bennett’s ‘Duets II’ album that drops Sept. 20.

Latifah was a good head taller than than Bennett (her high heels only exaggerated the difference) but it was on her to keep up with the legend. Early fans of the rapper-turned-songstress would be amazed to hear how delicate she could be. Yes this is the same woman who once sang “U-N-I-T-Y / You gotta let ’em know.”

A tender piano and soft brush strokes against the snare drum joined a regal stand up bass in backing up the two singers. Bennett and Queen Latifah seemed to truly enjoy working together and while they’re not a perfect vocal match their genuine joy made this performance one of the night’s highlights. Other artists joining Bennett on the new album include Lady Gaga and Amy Winehouse.
