Five names are set to receive their rainbow ribbon of honor!

The Kennedy Center has announced their annual honorees and we are liking who they picked this year! Some we can't believe haven't been chosen before!

Billy Joel is representing rock 'n roll. Shirley MacLaine is being honored for her accomplishments on the big screen (although we think it's no coincidence that she's finally being recognized after her guest spot on Downton Abbey!)

Jazz pianist Herbie Hancock is being awarded for his decades of smooth songwriting. And for the first time EVER, two Hispanics are being named Kennedy Center Honorees in the same year!

Carlos Santana and opera singer Martina Arroyo!

Estamos muy orgullosos!

Congratulations, Carlos!

Looks like Carlos Santana got married under the radar last month to drummer Cindy Blackman in Hawaii.

Guests in attendance at the wedding included George Lopez and musician Herbie Hancock.

During the ceremony, Santana and his new wifey released doves "to release our purity and love into the cosmos."

So sweet! We're happy for you two!

Denzel To Host Nobel Peace Prize Concert

Pretty impressive, Denzel. Definitely a step up from hosting the Teen Choice Awards (Sorry, Katy Perry!)

Denzel Washington will host the Nobel Peace Prize Concert in Oslo, Norway, on Dec 11, with support from a lineup of artists, including Florence and the Machine, Colbie Caillat, Herbie Hancock, and Elvis Costello.

Here's what Denzel had to say about his honor:

"I am honored to attend the Nobel Peace Prize Concert this year and participate in this historic and momentous event to help spread the message of global peace."

Here's what Geir Lundestad, secretary of the Norwegian Nobel Committee, had to say about Denzel:

"We're thrilled to have Mr. Washington join us to host this year's Nobel Peace Prize Concert. He is the perfect ambassador for this event, which celebrates peace through music and illuminates the notable contributions of the Nobel laureate."

The 2010 Nobel Peace Prize winner will be announced in Oslo on Oct. 8, and the award will be handed out on Dec. 10 as always, which marks the anniversary of prize founder Alfred Nobel's death in 1896.
