I have always loved The Kennedy Center Honors show. I wish a skater would win one someday.

Can't wait to see this. It's become one of our late December traditions.

Come to think of it, I don't know why one hasn't yet. Don't they sometimes give them to athletes?

Is this the 'Kenney' you're refering to? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kenny_McCormick

No, at least not so far.


The Kennedy Center Honors is an annual honor given to those in the performing arts for their lifetime of contributions to American culture.


There's over 150 + honorees here.

Holy moly. I had heard that Glenn Close could sing, but I didn't know she was that good!

I watched this last night, and it was wonderful. The Meryl Streep tribute was nice, but I looooved the Yo-Yo Ma portion. All of the chamber music was beautiful and Stephen Colbert was funny too (and yay that YYM got the pimp spot and he got to sit next to Michelle Obama!)

There is a "connection" between three of last night's honorees.
Meryl Streep, YoYo Ma. and Steven Colbert were all profiled on Dr. Henry Louis Gates' "Faces of America" last year.
That could be why he did the segment for Ma.
