FRANK SINATRA AT 100



The other night PBS celebrated the 100th birthday of Frank Sinatra at Lincoln Center.  There were a few surprises.


First, host Seth MacFarlane can actually sing.  Would not surprise me if he is cast as Frank in a future biopic.


Second, Fantasia is far too large.  I can't believe it was eleven years ago, but she became the winner of American Idol in 2004.  Her rendition of Summertime was memorable.


However, this is how she looks now:


The very first American Idol winner, Kelly Clarkson, too, seems to have a problem:


You say, well, not too bad.  But that is a posed photo from redbook.  Here is something from FAT WORLD wiki:


On the other hand, Bernadette Peters looked great:


How old do you think she is?  67!  She made her professional debut in 1958, and has mostly been on Broadway, but has appeared in 24 films.


Also in the show were Christina Aquilera, Sting, Chris Botti, Sutton Foster and the New York Philharmonic.Tomorrow, my usual somewhat irrelevant review on Star Wars:  The Force Awakens.
