I guess the teleprompter was in the shop.

First of all, I want to thank, uh, the other entertainers who are here today, uh, a great friend and an extraordinary musician, Ben Harper. Please give it up for Ben. Tony, uh, Tony nominee (unintelligible.) Give it up for Raul. Before they walk off the stage, please give a big round to the band. Come on out here. Take a bow, guys. Thank you so much. And for one of the greatest singers of our generation, and entertainers, Barbra Streisand.
