The Kennedy Center Honors, which were held on December 2nd at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., will air tonight (Wednesday) at 9 p.m. ET on CBS. Among this year's honorees were Led Zeppelin, Buddy Guy, Dustin Hoffman and David Letterman. The honors, which are not limited to Americans, are the nation's highest award for those who've influenced American culture through the arts.
Among those who performed Zeppelin songs were Foo Fighters doing "Rock and Roll" with Dave Grohl on drums and Taylor Hawkins on vocals, and Kid Rock covering "Babe I'm Gonna Leave You" and "Ramble On." Lenny Kravitz did a fine Robert Plantimpression on "Whole Lotta Love," and to cap it off, Jason Bonham, son of original drummer John and a participant in the band's 2007 reunion show, joined Ann and Nancy Wilson of Heart for "Stairway to Heaven" that also featured a choir. The members of Zeppelin loved the performance, with Plant becoming teary-eyed.
Jeff Beck and Bonnie Raitt helped pay tribute to Buddy Guy.
