The singer and classic TV performer has died at the age of 84. Eydie Gorme passed away on today in Las Vegas after a short undisclosed illness. A well known nightclub performer in New York, Gorme joined Steve Allen’s local TV show in 1953. She soon was partnered with another singer on the show Steve Lawrence and the duo moved upward with Allen in 1954 when his show became NBC’s Tonight Show in 1954. The couple married on December 29, 1957. The next year, The Steve Lawrence and Eydie Gorme Show debuted on NBC and lasted one season. Still, both solo and with Lawrence, the Grammy winner would show up on the small screen often over the next three decades. Gorme appeared on the Gary Moore Show, What’s My Line?, Password All-Stars, The Ed Sullivan Show, The Bob Hope Show, the Carol Burnett Show among other. As well as a big music hit in 1963 with Blame It On The Bossa Nova, she co-hosted The Kraft Music Hall for NBC in the late Sixties and hosted The Hollywood Palace on ABC in 1970. Gorme won a Primetime Emmy in 1979 for Steve & Eydie Celebrate Irving Berlin. In 1997 and 1998, Gorme joined Rosie O’Donnell on her syndicated talk show. Gorme is survived by Lawrence and their son David.
