The Kennedy Center Honors inducted Herbie Hancock, Martina Arroyo, Shirley MacLaine, Billy Joel and Carlos Santana this week. During the ceremony, while the President and the First Lady sat in the audience, Anna Kendrick performed “It’s Not How You Start, It’s How You Finish” to honor MacLaine.
Lady can sang.
She also joined Sutton Foster in the full tribute.
If that’s not enough Kendrick for you (is there ever enough?), if you haven’t seen this yet, here’s some fantastic tap dancers recreating Kendrick’s “Cups,” which may be the most impressive thing in this post.
