Did anyone else catch Barry Manilow on Leno last night? He sang Unchained Melody from his new album, The Greatest Songs of the 50s. He was spectacular. He’s got a new gig at the Hilton in Vegas. Next time I’m there, I’m going to be front row.
You may think I’m kidding, but I actually do like him! Seriously! Especially the dramatic hand pullbacks he does when hitting the climax.
Perhaps the best part of the show was when he walked off the stage over to be seated next to Jay. The evening’s prior guests were the American Idol judges, so Barry asked them appropriately, “Did I win? Did I win?”
