Tony Bennett Pulls Out Of ‘Idol’ Appearance

The show won’t be going on for Tony Bennett on tonight’s “American Idol.”

The legendary crooner, who turned eighty a few months ago, is not well enough to put his golden pipes on the air.

According to a spokesperson for the star, he has a cold.

With just hours left until tonight’s live show, producers from “American Idol” are working hard to find a stand in. A source close to the show told Access Hollywood they are trying to get Canadian singer Michael Buble to fill in.
