You know you have been pretty dang successful in your carrer when you have the biggest names in show business gathering to celebrate your birthday… LOL well Tony Bennett’s 90th birthday for the NBC special Tony Bennett Celebrates 90: The Best Is Yet to Come that aired on Tuesday night had a ton of huge names. Lady Gaga belted out Frank Sinatra’s hit “The Lady Is the Tramp,” which she and Bennett covered on their 2014 duets album Cheek to Cheek. Michael Buble, Billy Joel, Elton John, and Bob Dylan also performed tributes for Bennett. Meanwhile, Alec Baldwin served as the unofficial emcee for the celebration and repeatedly delivered his spot-on impersonation of the singer. At the end of the night, Bennett himself took the stage–looking ridiculously healthy and happy for 90–and belted out a vey appropriate Sinatra standard: “The Best Is Yet to Come.” He then treated fans to a flawless rendition of his signature song “I Left My Heart in San Francisco.” The hashtag #Tony90 began trending during the special and many Twitter users expressed their admiration for the singer. “Tony Bennett is the definition of cool,” one tweeted. Another gushed, “Wow! Tony Bennet”s voice is still smooth as velvet even at 90. Timeless, indeed!”
