The 2021 Kennedy Center Honors special will be airing TONIGHT (June 6) and we have the full list of performers and celebrity presenters who will appear during the show.

The event was filmed a couple weeks ago in Washington, D.C. and the show is going to look a lot different this year because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Gloria Estefan will be hosting the show, which airs at 8pm ET/PT on CBS. It will also be available to stream live and on demand on the CBS app and Paramount+.

Estefan, who received a Kennedy Center Honors in 2017, previously hosted the show in 2018.

The 43rd Annual Kennedy Center Honors show is actually the event that was intended to take place in 2020. The event is traditionally held in early December every year.

Dick Van Dyke, Garth Brooks, Debbie Allen & More Honored at Kennedy Center Honors 2021

Dick Van Dyke leans on his cane while arriving at the 2021 Kennedy Center Honors ceremony held at The Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., on Friday (May 21).

The 95-year-old legendary actor was honored at the ceremony, alongside Debbie Allen, Garth Brooks, Joan Baez and violinist Midori, for their contributions to the arts.

“Many years ago, I was the host of a similar event held, as I recall, in private with the Kennedy family,” Dick shared in a previous statement about the honor. “I saw the care with which the recipient was chosen from an impressive list of nominees. Since the creation of the Kennedy Center Honors, just over 200 have been honored with equal care. Being included in that small, illustrious group, is the thrill of my life.”

In addition to the honorees, Norm Nixon, Debbie‘s husband; Jasmine Jankelow-Harris, Joan’s granddaughter; Trisha Yearwood, Garth‘s wife; Charles Danziger, Midori‘s business partner; and Arlene Silver, Dick‘s wife were also in attendance with Kennedy Center Chairman David Rubenstein and its president, Deborah Rutter.

The 2021 Kennedy Center Honors, hosted by Gloria Estefan, will air on June 6 on CBS.

The event will also be available to stream on demand on the CBS app and Paramount+.
