The Kennedy Center Honors: Help cast the show

Posted on

Okay, so the Kennedy Center probably doesn’t need our help to cast the annual tribute show — this year honoring Barbra Streisand, George Jones, Morgan Freeman, choreographer Twyla Tharp and The Who’s Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey. But then again, after that Jessica Simpson-does-Dolly debacle a couple of years ago, you can’t be certain…. So, who do you want to see honoring these artists come December? I’m particularly concerned about who’s going to sing the greatest country song ever, George Jones’ “He Stopped Loving Her Today” (below).

If you’ve got favorite Kennedy Center Honors moments, list ’em. (If you’ve never seen Mikhail Baryshnikov dance, I suggest you watch his tribute, introduced by the late, great Gregory Hines.)
