You won’t see this tonight on the show:
This was the video from the Kennedy Center honors taping on December 7th. But it’s not shown on the program, it was only inside the auditorium. Toward the end when George Stevens Jr. says David Rubenstein came to him and said it was time to go, there was an audible gasp in the room. Stevens is a class act.
And now it turns out that the Kennedy Center under David Rubenstein is launching something new next month: The Lincoln Awards. It’s to honor people who’ve supported the military. Bruce Springsteen is the only celebrity getting the award. But there are tons scheduled to perform. So as I said before, get ready, because tonight may be the last Kennedy Center Honors as we knew them.
