Lady Gaga joins Tony Bennett on the 1937 Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart classic "The Lady Is A Tramp." The song is featured on Tony's latest release, "Tony Bennett: Duets II," out today on Columbia Records.

And the crooner has high praises for his partner on the song. "I never met a more talented person in my life, he tells Billboard Magazine. "I think she's going to become as big as Elvis Presley."

"Duets II" follows up "Tony Bennett Duets: An American Classic" - the 2006 Grammy winning best selling CD which became Bennett's best selling recording to date.

The album boasts a cast of A-list singers partnering with Bennett, including Carrie Underwood, John Mayer, Amy Winehouse, Sheryl Crow, Aretha Franklin and Mariah Carey.

"I can't tell you how professional every one of them was, and how they worked and memorized and knew what they were going to do," he tells the magazine.

"And it shows up on the record, you know? You can hear them performing very well for us."
