Royal Variety performance spectators then wept on Wednesday night Captain Tom Moore sang that you will never walk alone with Michael Ball.
We are not crying, you are.
Michael appeared on stage at the Blackpool Opera House, accompanied by the NHS choir, while Captain Tom performed via video link.
Earlier this year, Captain Tom took a walk in his garden to help raise 33 33m for NHS charities.
He planned to walk 100 laps to his garden in Marston Moreten, Bedfordshire, before his 100th birthday on April 30, and of course, he broke it.
Captain Tom and Michael also sing You Never Go As Single in April and it reached number one.
Following his emotional and moving performance, a viewer took to Twitter and yelled: ‘Is anyone else tearing it up? Such an ongoing demonstration. ‘
Another commented: ‘On me, I think there is something in my eye.’
One added: ‘In a bit of it.’
Elsewhere on the show, Sheridan Smith reiterated her role as the late Fortress Black, and her performance inspired everyone.
There was Steps, Melania and the music of the Brit Award winner Celeste.
West End star Marisha Wallace and Kenya’s Black Blues Brothers’ Acrobats as well as performances.
Royal Variety Performance is available at ITV Hub.
