Moment 15: Liberace's Final Interview

Of all the iconic interviews, TV Guide Magazine picked this one from 1986 as their all-time favorite. Entertainer and pianist Wladziu Valentino Liberace was best known only by his last name. For more than 40 years, he was one of America's most beloved performers. On December 25, 1986, Liberace appeared on the first season of The Oprah Show, playing a Christmas medley that Oprah called "the most beautiful I've ever heard." It was Liberace's last televised appearance before he died six weeks later.
