Billy Joel’s “Uptown Girl” doesn’t always make the set list, especially considering Joel divorced the song’s subject (Christie Brinkley) back in 1994, but I guess things change after 20 years…and if the “Uptown Girl” has primo seats in front.
At Joel’s most-recent Madison Square Garden residency show, he serenaded his ex-wife with the massive pop hit and made sure that one of his cameramen got a shot of her on the big screen, which the audience greeted with much applause.
Christie managed to get a still of herself on the screen, which she shared on her Instagram page, along with the caption, “He’s still got it!”
I don’t know which is more incredible: How gorgeous Christie STILL is or how Billy nabbed her in the first place! Whichever instance you choose, props to both of them. What a great live music moment!
