Tony Bennett performs on American Idol

Scotty McCreery may be the American Idol winner, but one of the performers during last night’s season finale showed he still has something left in the tank.

Tony Bennett performed with Haley Reinhart, one of this seasons contestants in Idol.

Bennett showed he still has moves while he danced with Reinhart and did a couple of spins moves in front of a piano.

The two sang “Steppin Out With My Baby” and the pair received a standing ovation after the performance was over.

“Steppin’ out with my baby, Can’t go wrong ’cause I’m in right,” sang the duo. “Ask me when will the day be, The big day may be tonight.”

Bennett—crisply dressed in a suit and tie—put his arm around Reinhart as the two waved to the crowd when their performance was over.

The 84-year-old singer’s new album “Duets II” is scheduled to come out in September.

In the album, Bennett sings some of his greatest hits with some of the stars of today.

Singing in the album with the New York-native is Andrea Bocelli, Michael Buble, Mariah Carey, Natalie Cole, Sheryl Crow, Aretha Franklin, Josh Groban, Faith Hill, and of course…Lady Gaga.

During last night’s finale, McCreery was announced the winner of Season 10 of American Idol, and Lauren Alaina was the runner up.

“It’s been a year since me and Lauren Alaina tried out now,” Scotty told Ryan Seacrest when he asked the new American Idol what he was feeling that moment. “Me and her have been together since day one and we’re going to stay together.”

Other performers during the finale were: Lady Gaga, Beyonce and Carrie Underwood.
