Another LONG night at the Tonys and Bette Midler's speech didn't help. After the music came up signaling her to wrap up, she refused and kept going. Finally the band just gave up and let her talk. Later, host Kevin Spacey appeared as his TV show's alter ego, (the president of the United States) what stated that he wanted to leave before Midler thanked anyone else.
