barry manilow 4th july capitol singing surgery gi Barry Manilow reviews: Good 4th of July singing, bad plastic surgery

Barry Manilow headlined the 33rd annual “A Capitol Fourth” on Thursday (July 4) for the second time. While his performance drew positive reviews, the 70-year-old singer’s appearance was mostly just confusing.

Although many of Manilow’s admirers mentioned age when praising the singer, the praise was totally there. A post from Twitter user @librarian_kate said:

“I just sang along with Barry Manilow. Yep, I’m old.”

Another tweeter, @buckhollywood, used age as further praise for live singing:

“Barry Manilow still sings live and he is like 100!”

In appearance, reviews were not quite as kind. One Twitter user found Manilow’s entire body to be objectionable: 

“Barry Manilow has a body like a ventriloquist dummy.”

@staciatague was mostly just worried on Manilow’s behalf:

“Oh!! Barry Manilow!!! What have you done to yourself??”

One Twitter user, @ninatypewriter, even included a photo to prove her point:

“Barry Manilow on #ACapitolFourth was a plastic surgery, cheek implant cautionary tale”

“Barry looked and sounded FANTASTIC last night on @pbs Capitol Fourth!!”
