Carly Simon Rocks Tribeca Film Festival with "You're So Vain" Performance

It's a fantastic night to be a New Yorker!!

The incomparable Carly Simon dropped by New York's 1-OAK Thursday night to perform her 1973 hit "You're So Vain" at the Tribeca Film Festival after-party.

"This is the most thrilling night for me," Simon told the crowd, before handing over a $10,000 check to Brett Bisagno, a contest winner who filmed a hilarious and charming music video of the hit song.

"'You're So Vain' has never had a music video before," Simon reminded the audience.

Accompanying Simon during her performance was son Ben Taylor ("My old man taught me this song," Taylor said of dad James Taylor, before playing "Hard-Headed Woman,") along with musician David Saw and sister Lucy Simon.

"We haven't played this song in twenty years," Lucy said, before the sisters dueted on "Wynken, Blynken and Nod."

Check out Simon's performance of "You're So Vain" - which the crowd happily joined her on-stage for - below.
