Tony Bennett - Tony Bennett's Olympic Blunder

Veteran singer Tony Bennett was late to the stage at a show on Friday (27Jul12) because he was wrapped up watching the opening ceremony of the London Olympics on TV.
The legendary crooner was so engrossed in director Danny Boyle's spectacular show that he missed the cue for his set at the Monte-Carlo Sporting Summer Festival in Monaco.
A source tells the New York Post gossip column Page Six that Bennett was "laughing so much" backstage while watching Daniel Craig and Queen Elizabeth II's James Bond skit.
The insider adds, "Tony couldn't hear his name called to start his set."
The star later received a standing ovation when he finally appeared onstage.
