    Close race this round. So close that we have a tie.

    Let's enjoy the two winners from their Central Park concert.
    (Watch especially from 2.25 on The Boxer clip for the "forgotten verse" - and the smile/pat on the back. These two hated each other for a some time, but here they seem to be in good spirits and let bygones be bygones, remembering why they were friends to begin with. Such a beautiful moment!!)

    Thank you for posting this version @Emelee, I haven’t seen it before, nor had I heard the forgotten verse.


    They both look so relaxed during this performance and its good to see them enjoying singing every word of this classic song.

    And now I have this song going around and around my head :D
