The 38th Annual Kennedy Center Honors was another excellent awards special
20 January 2016 | by See all my reviews

Just watched this, the Kennedy Center Honors from last December, with my mom on a recording machine. The honorees were: Rita Moreno, George Lucas, Cicely Tyson, Seiji Ozawa, and Carole King. Moreno's co-star from "Jane the Virgin"-Gina Rodriguez-introed her profile film. Of course, they showed her "America" scene from West Side Story. That was later reenacted on stage. Also, Rosie Perez reenacted Ms. Moreno's "Fever" number from "The Muppet Show" with Animal once again showboating on the drums to hilarious effect. C-3PO and R2D2 helped Carrie Fisher intro Lucas' bio film which was narrated by Darth Vader himself-James Earl Jones. Steven Spielberg and Martin Scorsese also offered tributes. Host Stephen Colbert reappeared at this point to mention that the Eagles decided to not accept the honor at that time in order for group member Glenn Frey to recover (He died a couple of days ago) but Miranda Lambert did go on to sing their "Desperado". Tyler Perry did an anecdote about working with Ms. Tyson on Alex Cross before her film of her life and work was shown before Viola Davis then offered her tribute to her "How to Get Away with Murder" co-star. Then Kerry Washington introed someone who was doing a tribute to Ms. Tyson's former and late hubby, Miles Davis, which led to a gospel-tinged finale. John Williams narrated the film on Ozawa as we see the Boston Pops conductor play with the Boston Symphony conductor. Yo-Yo Ma also performed in tribute. Finally, John Kerry introed the Carole King film which was mixed with the reenactment of the King musical "Beautiful" with the lady playing her narrating. Janelle Monae performed "Will You Love Me Tomorrow" and "One Fine Day", James Taylor performed "Up on the Roof" on the roof of a building set, and Aretha Franklin did "You Made Me Feel Like a Natural Woman" to excited reaction from Ms. King. The finale began with a '70s clip of Carole doing "I Feel the Earth Move" which segued to Aretha, Janelle, and James then singing the lines in front of the other guests honoring the other honorees. In summary, this was another highly enjoyable special of the Kennedy Center Honors.
