In 2008, legendary brother-sister duo, Donny and Marie Osmond, kicked off what was supposed to be a six-week residency at the Flamingo in Las Vegas. That six weeks turned into an 11-year run.

After an 11-year run, Donny and Marie Osmond performed the final show of their residency at the Flamingo in Las Vegas on Saturday. 

The pair was emotional throughout the show, especially when singing the final song of the night 'May Tomorrow Be a Perfect Day.' They sang the finale through tears. 

The Osmond's residency was originally scheduled for six weeks when it began in 2008. Instead they performed 1,730 shows. 

"I want to express my deepest thanks to everyone who came to see the show during our 11-year run here in Vegas. You've traveled from all over the world to see us perform. We feel and sincerely appreciate your loyal support," Donnie wrote on Instagram. "?Our show and our Vegas residency here at @flamingovegas would not have been possible without our phenomenal crew, stage manager, video director, band, dancers, wardrobe and makeup teams, maitre d's, ushers and staff at @flamingovegas. Your warmth, energy and skill are irreplaceable. I'll miss all of you."

"Performing with Donny provided stability for my children by not traveling and for the first time I felt peace. I could be a mom and still do what I loved with someone I trusted, my brother Donny - I love you Donny!?" Marie added. 

Well we made it over the finish line and I only limped a little!! ??♥? Last night as ‘Donny and Marie’ we sang together again but this time was for the last time. I’m not losing him, we are, after all, still brother and sister and I’ll see him at Christmas?? But ‘Donny and Marie’ will be different now. Change is a good reminder that it’s the only thing in life that IS consistent. ?? But this is one of those times when it isn’t easy to move forward without tears. The Flamingo was exactly the “stay at home job” I needed and Donny and I both felt God’s hand in everything we did. During this time I literally got my life back on track. I was a single mom with 8 kids and a lot of baggage - along with their broken hearts to heal. Performing with Donny provided stability for my children by not traveling and for the first time I felt peace. I could be a mom and still do what I loved with someone I trusted, my brother Donny - I love you Donny! Thank you for being my big brother♥? I believe one of the main reasons Heavenly Father put us back to together was to have support for my children when my son Michael passed. We found strength from family and our new family of friends @FlamingoVegas My greatest gift was remarrying the love of my life Steve Craig. Also four of our children got married and I became a grandmother.??. Another huge blessing in my life was reuniting with dear friends and managment team Greg and Darla Sperry. Then there are the fans! You have been such a blessing in my life and I have God to thank for that.But I’m not a new person as I go forward, just more refined.... like silver: “For thou, O God, hast proved us: thou hast tried us, as silver is tried” (Psalms 66:10) ... I love the analogy of silver being refined. Go to my Facebook page for the analogy of this story and more or MarieOsmond.com #SundayMessage So: May tomorrow be a perfect day. May you find love and laughter along the way. May God keep you in his tender care Till he brings us together again! I love you all..... Make sure you tune in to @thetalkcbs tomorrow (Monday) to go behind-the-scenes of our last day at @flamingovegas
