Video: 'Stairway to Heaven' at Kennedy Center Honors

Awesome. Brilliant stroke to go female with the Led Zeppelin anthem. Ann Wilson of Heart led the way, with Nancy Wilson on guitar and the late Zeppelin drummer John Bonham's son on the skins. The surprise church choir voices finally brought Robert Plant to subtle tears. Jimmy Page just looked completely wowed.

Marvelous show all the way around. The other winners were Dustin Hoffman, David Letterman, Buddy Guy and Natalia Makarova.

Here's our backstage picture story from last week on Tiler Peck, the New York City Ballet principal dancer who performed for Makarova.
