Chita Rivera, who shared the stage with Brian Stokes Mitchell in Kiss of the Spider Woman, was surprised by the actors appearance at the Kennedy Center Honors Dec. 8. Mitchell went straight from his Man of La Mancha matinee to perform at the ceremony.

Along with Rivera, the United States awarded actor James Earl Jones, actress Elizabeth Taylor, singer-songwriter Paul Simon and conductor James Levine with the Kennedy Center Honor. CBS will air "The Kennedy Center Honors" on Dec. 27 at 9 PM ET.
