The 33rd annual Kennedy Center Honors, held Dec. 5 in Washington, DC, and broadcast Dec. 28 on CBS, featured a plethora of starry tributes to the five men and women honored for their contributions to the performing arts.

Below is a complete clip of "Dreamgirls" Academy Award winner Jennifer Hudson performing "I'm Here," the emotional showstopper from the Broadway musical The Color Purple, which was co-produced by 2010 honoree (and Oscar-nominated star of the 1985 Purple film) Oprah Winfrey.

Also included are Tony Award winner Angela Lansbury's tribute to honoree Jerry Herman, who composed her Broadway triumph in Mame, as well as a montage of other spoken and sung tributes. Tony nominees Kelsey Grammer and Matthew Morrison perform tributes to Herman, and stage and screen stars Julia Roberts, Claire Danes and Alec Baldwin speak, respectively, about Winfrey and her fellow honorees, Tony-winning director-choreographer Bill T. Jones and legendary musician Paul McCartney.
