Last night, NBC honored Carol Burnett with a special honoring her legendary career.

The evening included musical performances from Bernadette Peters, Billy Porter, Jane Lynch, Katy Perry, Kristin Chenoweth, Sutton Foster, and Darren Criss.

Paying homage to Carol's renowned career performances, Peters and Chenoweth performed "Old Friends," dedicated to Carol's 60-year friendship with Julie Andrews and "Only an Octave Apart," which Carol sang alongside Beverly Sills in the 1976 television special "Sills and Burnett at the Met."

To honor Burnett's beloved duets, Foster and Criss performed a rendition of "Side By Side By Side" by Stephen Sondheim, sung to "Carol Burnett's Duets."

Carol's memorable songs from the hit film "Annie" were honored by Jane Lynch performing "Little Girls" and Bernadette Peters and Billy Porter performing "Easy Street."

Katy Perry ended the special with a tribute to Burnett's classic theme song, "I'm So Glad We Had This Time Together" from "The Carol Burnett Show."
