Recognizing the achievements of Gloria Estefan, Lionel Richie, LL Cool J, Norman Lear and Carmen de Lavallade, the 40th Kennedy Center Honors ceremony was held in Washington DC this past weekend.
CBS will air the event as a two-hour broadcast on December 26.
To generate excitement for the TV broadcast, the network released a gallery of photos from the taping.
Those featured in the gallery include Becky G, Luke Bryan, Eva Longoria, Misty Copeland, Stevie Wonder, Leona Lewis, Meryl Streep, and Dave Chappelle.
The aforementioned names — and many more — paid tribute to the honorees with performances and/or speeches. A full lineup is available here.
