“This is my 16th Grammy. Isn't that wonderful?" Bennett said from the podium.

He added, “It's an amazing album. It's the first album I've ever had that went to No. 1 on Billboard. It's selling all over the world, in every single country. It's an amazing, wonderful experience. My son came up with the premise of 'Duets I' and 'Duets II.'"
