Fans are shocked at how youthful singer Barry Manilow looks just before his 80th birthday

Fans are shocked at how youthful singer Barry Manilow looks just before his 80th birthday

He's made a deal with the devil for sure.

Fans are absolutely shocked to find out how good Barry Manilow looks just days shy of his 80th birthday.

Ok, we need to find what fountain of youth Manilow is drinking from because the singer doesn’t look a day over 40.

Over the weekend, the musician with a career which spans more than 50 decades hit the Tony Awards at United Palace Theatre in New York City ahead of his birthday on June 17.

And Manilow made quite the impression looking rather dapper in his navy blazer and black suit pants.

One Twitter user wrote: “It’s Barry Manilow. He looks great.”

Another said: “Who else just googled to see how old is Barry Manilow? Spoiler alert.. he turns 80 this week!”

While a third commented: “A great voice. Mum liked him too. Hardly believe he's nearly 80 now.”

However, not all users showed him with compliments, as one shared: “With all that botox and work done to his face, my guy Barry Manilow is starting to look like Madam the puppet from the old Hollywood squares my word. He’s a damn legend regardless tho.”

The 'Copacabana' hitmaker, who's currently on tour, recently opened up to the Mirror on how he stays so youthful.

"Just luck! It's just blind luck. I'm very old, let's not talk about it - it's just very depressing," he said.

“I think of people who are 80... they look older than I do," he added.

“They’re retired. You know, that ain’t me.

And the multi-award-winning singer isn’t showing any signs of slowing anytime soon.

"I’m just getting started. I’ve always got the next one,” he said.

The legendary singer-songwriter has sold more than 85 million records worldwide, and released 13 platinum and six multi-platinum albums throughout his 59-year career, making him one of the best-selling artists of all time.

He dominated pop music during the latter half of the seventies with several hit singles, including, 'I Write the Songs’, ‘Looks Like We Made It’, ‘Mandy’, and ‘Copacabana (At the Copa)’.

He’s worked with the likes of Bette Midler, Nancy Wilson, Sarah Vaughn and Dionne Warwick.

Aside from writing songs for himself and other artists, the singing icon has written and performed songs for musicals, films, and commercials for corporations such as McDonald's, Pepsi-Cola, and Band-Aid.
