Let's look at some positives from the Yeezy Season 3 debut, shall we?
We don't know about you, but seeing the former athlete make his first public appearance since his nearly-fatal overdose — walking in right behind the man of the hour Kanye West — made us feel some type of way!
It is truly remarkable to see him so happy and healthy after such a terrifying scare. We love to see him back on his feet, celebrating this new lease on life!
An insider told People:
UPDATE 12:19 P.M. EST: Good news! It looks like Mr. Manilow's most recent hospital visit was a success. His rep recently confirmed:
"Barry is out of surgery and doing well. His Doctors report that the surgery was successful and they expect no further complications. For the next forty eight hours, Manilow has been instructed not to talk, sing, or rap.
Barry thanks everyone for their well wishes and concern."
Just know we're thinking about you, Barry!
Earlier this week, Barry Manilow was rushed to the hospital following complications from oral surgery he had done only a handful of days ago. Yikes!
It's said that the Mandy singer was able to perform at his sold out Memphis, TN concert but had to rush back to El Lay for medical attention. The 72-year-old's team took to Facebook on Thursday to confirm that a few of his concerts would have to be rescheduled.
But what about the hitmaker's performance at the Grammys?? They wrote:
L.O. looked healthy and happy to be in NYC taking in Kanye West's The Life Of Pablo and Yeezy Season 3 presentation on Thursday.
We can only hope this sighting is the first of many. What a miraculous recovery!

She looks healthy now!
On Thursday, Janet Jackson was caught on camera for the first time since suffering from a mysterious illness back in December!
And while we still don't know what exactly caused the legendary performer to go under the knife, we do know that she looks to be in better health now!
The 49-year-old was snapped in London, hand-in-hand with her husband, Wissam Al Mana, at the Lazarides Art Gallery, and she was even seen smiling!
She donned an all-black ensemble, except for the white scarf wrapped around her neck.
Glad she's feeling better — and the songstress appears to be recovering quite nicely!

Ahhh, this makes our hearts so happy!
This marks the first time the former athlete has been able to travel since his nearly-fatal overdose back in October, and Kris Jenner is certainly "excited" to see him getting back in the swing of things.
The momager sat down with ET to offer up the scoop on the huge milestone in the 36-year-old's recovery:
"Kanye invited him to come, and it's a big deal for him to be able to come. I'm excited. For him to have this, you know, this is a milestone for him to be able to travel. So, baby steps. But this is a big one. This is a huge step for him."
After being "very careful" about taking all the right steps to get LO in the best shape possible, Miz Jenner believes he is truly "ready" to be back on his feet:
"It's a really short [trip]. I think it's a great thing for him to be with the family, and come out and do something that we're all a part of, and he really wanted to support Kanye. He really wanted to be here for him, because Kanye was very instrumental in part of his recovery. Kanye would go to the hospital and play him music, and that's what he really, really responded to. He was amazing. Lamar started rapping again before he could talk. Isn't that wild?"
