Anyone else totally blown away by Aretha Franklin's appearance? If you missed it, in the segment honoring Carole King, Ms. Franklin, age 73, came out in a full-length mink (why not?), sat down at the piano (I didn't even know she played), and proceeded to SLAY "Natural Woman". It was quite a moment, with Carole King going nuts in the balcony, the crowd roaring, and Obama wiping away a tear (me, too). And before that James Taylor (even old and bald he sets my heart thumping) sang "Up on the Roof" and Sara Bareilles sang "You've Got Friend". I was verklempt. The rest of the evening was darn entertaining, too--watching Gina Rodriguez tell how Rita Moreno had inspired her was another teary moment. Watch it if you can.
