Stars to Perform for Kennedy Center Honorees

With all the attention given to which celebs are coming to the inauguration, most of the talent for Sunday's Kennedy Center Honors has managed to stay under the radar. The producers like to keep the A-list a surprise until the stars walk onstage, but a few names have leaked:

  • Beyoncé will perform "The Way We Were" for her career model, honoree Barbra Streisand. "I want to be like her," Beyoncé told the L.A. Times. "She is just the ultimate. And I want to be an icon, too."

  • Clint Eastwood and Denzel Washington will pay tribute to Morgan Freeman: Eastwood co-starred with him in "Million Dollar Baby"; Washington worked with him in "Glory."

  • Garth Brooks will sing for George Jones; the two recorded a duet together, then had a falling out, but are now BFFs.

    Still secret: the performers for dance legend Twyla Tharp and the Who's Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey.
