Sunday night, in Washington D.C., some of the greatest entertainers in American history gathered for the Kennedy Centers Honors. The ceremony awards lifetime achievement honors to those who have helped to shape American culture, and this year's winners were no different. President Barack Obama was in attendance as the first award was presented to Dustin Hoffman by Robert De Niro, who described him as “world class, spectacular, colossal … pain in the *ss.”
King of the talk show David Letterman was hailed by the likes of Stephen Colbert, Ray Romano, Alec Baldwin, Tina Fey and Jimmy Kimmel. Jack Black introduced rock titans Led Zepellin, and surviving members Robert Plant, John Paul Jones and Jimmy Page watched as the Foo Fighters, Kid Rock, Lenny Kravitz and Heart all performed songs from their back catalogue.
Prima ballerina Natalia Makarova and blues legend Buddy Guy, who recently sang "Sweet Home Chicago" with Obama in the White House, were also honored. The special will be aired on CBS on December 26. Do you like watching awards ceremonies?
