    :swoon: Loving this group of honorees! Meryl Streep, one of my greatest guilty pleasures Neil Diamond, Broadway legend Barbara Cook, cellist Yo-Yo Ma, saxophonist Henry Rollins.

    Kennedy Center Honors

    Awwwww, Meryl's statement:
    Going to be a sweet few months for Streep, methinks. The airing of this and release of Iron Lady within a few days of each other ... then the Oscar for the latter a couple of months later. :)

    Diamond wrote "Sweet Caroline" for Caroline Kennedy? I never knew that!

    What a wonderful group of honorees.
    I'm sure I'll be crying during the tributes; as I do during every telecast!

    Watching the Gala during the Holidays is a Family Tradition, but this year's going to be an awful lot of fun than it usually is. AWESOME group of Honourees this year.

    It'll be odd for Yo Yo Ma to be honoured and up there in the box watching the show though. :D How many times has he performed in it to help honour friends or mentors of his over the years?

    Oh and you've got to think they'll save Neil's tribute for last and w/Sweet Caroline being the last song. Seeing all those people in their best doing the Bop bop bop bah should be quite entertaining. :D

    What a great group of honorees! The Kennedy Center Honors is one of our favorite award shows and has become a tradition to watch during the holiday season. Classy presentation all the way. :)
