Two songs with Bublé. Blocked the duet with a 30-piece orchestra, performed 10 minutes after arriving — and out in an hour. “This was three months in planning. We shot at Radio City. Working around the Rockettes, rehearsal schedule, we came in 7 p.m. to 2 a.m. and worked all night on a weekend. Loaded in our sets Friday. Shot Saturday and Sunday. “Streisand’s done a duet with Bublé on an album. It’s a great guest list.”He talks about Grande like she's some icon already...
