click here to watch

“Billy Joel: The Library of Congress Gershwin Prize” is a PBS music special honoring singer-songwriter Billy Joel’s receipt of the Library of Congress Gershwin Prize for Popular Song. The evening will include performances by Joel, as well as Tony Bennett, Boyz II Men, Gavin DeGraw, Josh Groban, Natalie Maines, John Mellencamp and LeAnn Rimes, with a special performance by Kevin Spacey~— as well as a dance ensemble performance from Twyla Tharp’s “Movin’ Out.”

I just turned it on. How can it be anything but great?

Saw it a few nights ago. Fantastic show. The only performance I didn't like was the rendition of Allentown.

I just watched it and I also didn't like the rendition of Allentown. I like watching with sub-titles and especially enjoy reading his poetry put to music. I was surprised when someone said he has been entertaining for 50 years. I also felt pretty old hearing that too.

Billy Joel's band circa 1970 when he was in his heavy metal phase.

Thank you so much for the link. I just finished watching it. You just don't appreciate the number of songs he wrote and sang until you view this award ceremony!
