Anybody get a chance to watch the celebration of Frank Sinatra's 100th birthday. The program aired on one of our local stations last night. It was a 2-hour special which I did not get to watch in it's entirety.

‘Sinatra 100: An All-Star GRAMMY Concert’ Shows Frank Sinatra’s Country and Pop Influence

Ask me why? Don't ask. I'll tell you.

  • Because my husband insisted on watching Quantico with Priyanka Chopra and never learned how to program his VCR!! We've had VCRs for almost 30 years. There was no excuse for that!

Anyway … I forgive him.

Didn't see the whole show but think I caught two of the best performances.

  • Alicia Keys and Seth MacFarlane.

Seth WHO? Seth MacFarlane? Yeah! That's what I said. He can sing? Yes! He can sing! It was amazing!

Maybe other people knew about this guy's talent. But it was a surprise for me.

Did anyone get to see the entire show? How was it?

McFarlane has a great voice. He sings from time to time on various shows of his.

I did not see the show, but I have always liked Frank Sinatra's legendary songs.

Your husband could have watched Quantico on demand! Seth MacFarlane was an unusual choice. Is he a big Sinatra admirer?

No, I did not see it. When I was young, I could not stand Sinatra. Now, I feel quite differently. But I don't care to hear someone else sing his songs.

On Demand? Nope. We stopped getting cable TV long time ago. All we have are the local stations. My hubby is a Sinatra fan. But he's a huge Priyanka Chopra fan and he's dying to know who the terrorist is. That's the Quantico plot. They framed PC to take the blame for a terrorist attack. She's trying to figure out who really done it!

Also, my hubby was a little upset with some of the people chosen to perform. He thinks certain artists did not have a voice suited to sing Frank Sinatra's music. He thinks the people in charge of choosing performers for the show should have consulted him first. LOL. Picky. Picky Picky. :)

The picture in your post remind me of the film whose male leading role is like him.

I didn't see that but my mother, a major Frank Sinatra fan saw it. it is amazing that he would be 100 years old now. And his music is still being listened to by many generations.

Sinatra was very fortunate in that he enjoyed a lengthy career in the entertainment business. Some people don't realize that for a while he had to struggle and although he was an amazing talent, he wasn't getting any breakthrough opportunities. Nevertheless, he persevered and things finally turned around for him. He was a success and did it his way. That's for sure! :)

The really cool thing these days is when the new artists do that retro thing. I don't know what it's called. But they take the film of the original performance from back in the day and then they do their performance and they blend them! That is such a tribute. Many performers do that. Natalie Cole did one where she was singing her father, the late Nat King Cole; and Celene Dion did one where she was singing with Old Blue Eyes.

I missed the show but enjoy Sinatra as one of the great entertainers and singers.
