The 2018 Kennedy Center Honorees are jazz saxophonist and composer Wayne Shorter, singer/actress Cher, country singer/actress Reba McEntire, composer/pianist Philip Glass, and Hamilton co-creators Thomas Kail, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Andy Blankenbuehler, and Alex Lacamoire. Based on the photos from the awards ceremony, which CBS broadcasts on December 26, Cher had the most fun. The 72-year-old Emmy Award, GRAMMY Award, and Academy Award-winning singer and actress, receives a spoken tribute by Whoopi Goldberg who wears a black spider cape. Let’s face it, the Cher crew is the best dressed at the event.
It’s also a star-studded Cher crew, even considering it’s a night of stars. Emmy Award, GRAMMY Award and Tony Award-winning singer, songwriter, actress and LGBT rights activist Cyndi Lauper, clad in black leather, brings the house down when she performs Cher’s hit song “(If I Could) Turn Back Time.” And if that wasn’t enough, Lauper performs “I Got You Babe” with American Idol runner-up Adam Lambert. The 41st Annual Kennedy Center Honors airs December 16 at 8 pm on CBS.
