The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts will bestow its annual Honors awards on five entertainers this weekend in its national celebration of the arts.

"We honor an artist whose name is synonymous with dance at its most sublime [Mikhail Baryshnikov], a musician who revolutionized American popular music [Chuck Berry], one of the greatest and most popular singers that the world of opera has ever produced [Placido Domingo], a film icon equally brilliant in front and behind the camera [Clint Eastwood] and a beloved actress who has conquered the worlds of film, theater and television [Angela Lansbury]," said Kennedy Center Chairman James A. Johnson.

Events include a presentation of the Honors tonight at the State Department and a gala event tomorrow night at the Kennedy Center Opera House. The gala, the 23rd, will be broadcast at 9 p.m. Dec. 27 on CBS.
