Cher has no reason to "turn back time" -- the iconic singer is still killing it!

ET's Nancy O'Dell sat down with Cher in Los Angeles on Tuesday, where she opened up about the next generation of singers, and why she's still got it, five decades after she hit it big with Sonny.

"I really think it's the genes, because I haven't had to take my keys down," the 70-year-old singer explained. "That's the most impressive thing for me that I have ever done, because it's hard to hit the notes, you know? It's hard to hit the notes and when you get to -- it's like, I feel like I'm going to be the Tony Bennett of my generation."

Cher is definitely one of a kind, still performing flawlessly night after night at her residency, Classic Cher at the Monte Carlo in Las Vegas, and at the MGM National Harbor in the D.C. area. As for whether the legend has been offered any advice by Jennifer Lopez or Britney Spears, who have current Vegas residencies, Cher simply says she doesn't need it.

"Babe, I was doing Vegas when they were in rompers!" she joked.

"Elton I think [has welcomed me back to Vegas, but] I don't know the other girls that well, so not really… I use to know J.Lo a little bit," Cher said.

As for who Cher thinks could follow in her iconic footsteps, well, nobody's quite got it.

"Christina [Aguilera] certainly has got that, her own thing happening," she shared. "And I wouldn't say, I wouldn't say [Lady] Gaga. Gaga and I have more of a, kind of a... our looks pass in the night, you know? Our looks pass in the night."

But there's one artist Cher is really a fan of: Adele.

"Oh God, who wouldn't [want to duet with her]?" she mused. "How can you not [be a fan]?"
