They were the opening number, singing next to an old piano in a casual obscure room. Bennett said, “I see in Lady Gaga a touch of theatrical genius, she is very creative and very productive, I think as time goes on she might be America’sPicasso. I think she’s going to become as big asElvis Presley.” The song, even though not officially released, got to enter theJapan Hot 100chart, where it managed to reach the top 40. It also entered the top 200 extension to theUK Singles Chart.
