Barry Manilow headlined PBS' 33rd annual "A Capitol Fourth" Thursday, which also included a performance from Neil Diamond and a fireworks display.

The Fourth of July celebration on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., marked Manilow's second time at the live, televised event.

"I did it four years ago and I was so thrilled when they called me back and asked me to do it again," he told reporters. "For me it was one of the biggest thrills, not only because I was standing, singing, looking at the Capitol and being surrounded by history... and then being in the company of the National Orchestra [who] are amazing. Most of all, for me, it was ending the show with 'Let Freedom Ring.' Bruce [Sussman] and I wrote it for a moment like that."

Some Twitter users cheered Manilow's performance, praising him for singing live, while others were more focused on the 70-year-old's surgically enhanced facial features.
