2010 Kennedy Center Honorees Announced

"Receiving this year's Kennedy Center Honors are television host Oprah Winfrey, musicians Paul McCartney and Merle Haggard, dancer and choreographer Bill T. Jones and lyricist Jerry Herman. The honorees will be saluted during a Dec. 5 all-star gala and sold-out performance at the Kennedy Center (which will be broadcast Dec. 28 on CBS)."

Jones, 58, won a Tony this year for his choreography in the musical "Fela!" based on the life of Nigerian composer and activist Fela Anikulapo Kuti. "It's almost like being told you have 11 Tony nominations," he said of his selection. "I don't take good news well. I have a psychic freeze."]
