The center has also selected Meryl Streep, who has sung in a few movies and on Broadway but is much better known for her flawless interpretations of diverse characters over the past 35 years.

Maybe Ma will invite Condoleezza Rice to accompany him again.

Thanks, kfw. What did you think of the broadcast overall?
Come on, people. I can't believe only two of you saw it.......

It doesn't surprise me that the Diamond segment was successful. I was dragged to one of his concerts many years ago and had an unexpectedly good time. He's written a ludicrous number of hits and he's an energetic stage performer. Hard man to dislike whatever you think of his music.
I think Anne Hathaway would be great on the stage. Did she sing? She has a voice.

I have to disagree about Glenn Close. I thought she was the only person in the Cook tribute who had a poor voice. So many divas on one stage!

Not a lot stood out for me this year, although I enjoyed everything except the Diamond segment (but I agree, you can't not like the guy), which I fast-forwarded through. One of the funniest moments was when Stephen Colbert came out to begin the Yo-Yo Ma tribute, stopped and waved, then strode offstage, reappearing quickly and miming a great "The podium's over there? OK." I've still never seen a funnier KC Honors speech than what Steve Martins gave for Paul Simon in 2002.
