no title

What an incredible performance!

On Tuesday night, CBS aired The Kennedy Center Honors — which recognizes important people in the performing arts for their contributions during their lifetime — and it was AH-Mazing as expected.

The night was hosted by Stephen Colbert, and this year's incredible honorees were Carole King, George Lucas, Rita Moreno, Seiji Ozawa, and Cicely Tyson.

However, there was a hiccup in this year's honors as the legendary rock band the Eagles were also supposed to be honored, but due to Glenn Frey's "health complications", the band opted to wait until next year.

Luckily for us, the show decided to give the band some recognition this year anyway and had Miranda Lambert perform a beautiful cover of their hit ballad Desperado.

Ch-ch-check out the wonderful performance (below) and let us know how you think it stacks up to the original!

Perez Reviews: Beautiful, The Carole King Musical

Beautiful lives up to its name and then some!

The new musical based on the life of and featuring the music of legendary songwriter Carole King is a non-stop hit parade and the perfect example of a jukebox musical done right!

If you enjoyed Motown the musical, you will love Beautiful!

Both shows wisely choose to tell real-life stories instead of crafting one together out of the songs, which doesn't always work. For every Mama Mia you have two We Will Rock Yous and a Spice Girls musical.

Beautiful has heart, soul, humor and moves along at a brisk pace! And it is all set to the iconic songs of Carole King!

You forget, also, how many songs she wrote before she became famous as a solo artist!

One Fine Day! Up On The Roof! The LOCO MOTION! And so many more!

The beautiful music, arranged beautifully and beautifully sound-engineered, is the star of the show. BUT, the show's star, Jessie Mueller, is such a star!

Jessie Mueller is the future of Broadway! Right now!

Her voice is special! Her tone! Such a warmth to it! And range! So special!

AND, what we especially loved, is that we got to see her shine in The Mystery Of Edwin Drood, where she played a hilarious role in a super comedic part. So it was very nice to see her do a total 180 and play a normal person and showcasing a different, more heartfelt acting.

She was so beautiful!

Anika Larsen and Jarrod Spector were two other standouts from the show and we are running right now to iTunes to download Carole King's greatest hits!

We suggest you do the same, but only after you buy tickets to see Beautiful on Broadway!
