NEW YORK -- Tony Bennett makes 85 look like the new 55.
The legendary crooner celebrated his milestone birthday with a star-studded concert at the Metropolitan Opera House on Sunday, looking youthful and spry as he performed for more than an hour without taking so much as a water break. He danced, told jokes, and sang duets with Aretha Franklin, Elton John and Alejandro Sanz for a capacity crowd that included Robert De Niro and Katie Couric.
"I think it is amazing. He is amazing. This just goes to tell you nobody under 85 can complain about jack," said Whoopi Goldberg, who was also in attendance. "Don't tell me you are tired. I don't want to hear it. Tony Bennett can sing a cappella in the Met."
