I hope the televised version of it this year is not the botched up job they showed last year.

It should be fun (unless something better is on TCM).

Happy to see all these artists being honored. They all deserve it. I'm especially glad to see Ross being recognized. I'll be watching tonight.

Caroline looks beautiful but she should get some pointers on how to walk on camera.

Glebb- I loved her dress! I just watched Yolanda Adams totally tear the house down! She and the choir were absolutely AMAZING! Wow! Goosebumps through the TV! So far, the performance of the night. I was very disappointed in the Steve Martin tribute- except for Steve Carrell. Just found it a little odd and there were so many people missing like Lily Tomlin and SNL cast mates. I thought the opera singer for Martin S was so beautiful. Back on- mom

That tribute to Leon Fleisher was stirring!

Any idea who the choir and soloists were during the Beethoven choral fantasy? They announced the piano soloists and the orchestra but not the choir. I thought the choir was fantatstic, and the neglected choral singer in me wants to know who they were! re: Kennedy Center Honors Tonight!

yeah, that Steve Martin tribute was a bit odd. The Ross performance portion is about to come on here.

Leon Fleisher and Brian Wilson will leave you in tears. Well, they left me in tears, anyway.

These last two segments were all I got to see, but they were fantastic. Just wish they would have told us who the singers were though......re: Kennedy Center Honors Tonight!



SPOILER:::::








And what was up with the weirdly shaped beach balls? I get the "beach" reference, but they looked like footballs.....

Were Wendy and Carnie Wilson present at this event? I noticed all of Diana's children were there.

I was wondering if maybe they were filled with helium and if that somehow misshaped them......they just looked strange.....LOL


Really enjoyed the boys group Libera. Hadn't heard of them before...think I may have to look into their recordings...

I'm sure it was a very emotional evening for Mr. Wilson since he is the only surviving brother.

Well, I think there were some odd choices for the night. Brian Wilson has been around for so long and they got some boys choir from England. I guess it was supposed to symbolize that his music is international but I was expecting more from some of his peers maybe- or his children. I also thought they should have ended with the Diana Ross tribute as the performers were just better (again, Yolanda Adams was the performer of the night and the song she sang would have been perfect to end the show). I did enjoy the night as I always do- just some odd choices to honor a lifetime of achievement. Just sayin' mom

The first young boy to sing had the voice of an angel. I was trying not to think of castrati, lol.
