Billy Crystal's tearful Robin Williams tribute is the only Emmys moment you gotta see [VIDEO]
If you missed last night's Emmy Awards, you’re not alone – we’re not really sure why, but somehow they’re just not on par with the Golden Globes or Oscars – and there aren’t any wild MTV VMAs-style moments to recount, but there was one segment that’s really worth your time this morning.

Billy Crystal’s emotional, touching three-minute tribute to his dear friend Robin Williams was truly beautiful and you gotta see it. You just gotta! 
  
"I spent many happy hours with Robin on stage," said Crystal, fighting back tears. "The brilliance was astounding. The relentless energy was kind of thrilling. I used to think if I could just put a saddle on him and stay on him for eight seconds I was going to do OK."

"While some of the brightest of our celestial bodies are actually extinct now, their energy long since cooled, but miraculously, because they float in the heavens so far away from us now, their beautiful light will continue to shine on us forever," he continued. "And the glow will be so bright it will warm your heart and will make your eyes glisten and you will think to yourselves, 'Robin Williams. What a concept.'"

Oh lordy lord, where the heck are the tissues?!
