Great choice.

I hope Jill and Joe dance to 'Just the Two of Us' tonight. They've earned it.

She was great, as were the other performers on the star-studded roster, plus the editing and other aspects of the production.

Remember when red don couldn't get decent talent for his installation? Bwaaaahah. What a contrast--Springsteen, Hanks, Perry, Lady Gaga...many many names. All of the performances have been great!

Different covers of this beautiful Bill Withers song have been posted to DU a few times. In fact, I posted one myself by Jose James shortly after the November election:

For me, there many highlights in tonight's show. The whole thing was a delight, but my absolute favorite was the Ant Clemons-Justin Timberlake performance of "Better Days" from the fabled Stax Studio A in Memphis! This studio, where Booker T. and the M.G.s (and Otis Redding and a few other notables) recorded, is a sacred music site for those of us who love that music. (Yes, I believe that's Steve Cropper's old beat-up amp leaning up against the wall.) And when they went out on McLemore Avenue to be joined by a chorus of backup singers and other musicians, it was a moment of jubilation that did a lot to heal four years of trauma.
