The Kennedy Center Honors is an annual honor given to those in the performing arts for their lifetime of contributions to American culture (although recipients do not need to be U.S. citizens). Each year five new artists are honored. While most inductees are musicians, dancers or actors, directors, writers, choreographers and other "behind-the-scenes" artists are also honored.

The ceremony is televised, with the show this year airing on December 26, and the honorees are dancer Carmen de Lavallade, musicians Gloria Estefan, LL Cool J and Lionel Richie and TV producer/writer Norman Lear.

Which of these past honorees from behind the scenes do you think was most deserving?

Jen,

I am really happy to see that dancer Carmen de Lavallade, musicians Gloria Estefan, LL Cool J and Lionel Richie and TV producer/writer Norman Lear have been honored. I am having a difficult time choosing from your list of honorees, many of whom I admire.

Carmen de Lavallade is a partner personally and on stage with Geoffrey Holder. They were so beautiful together...

Jen,

Although this probably has little chances of appearing on the IMDb Home Page, would you mind moving the choices with images to the beginning of your list.

Live Poll: http://www.imdb.com/poll/Z8qigfD-RN4/?ref_=po_fp Bravo... bravo!

Oh wow, Alvin Ailey, Balanchine, Tennessee Williams, Twyla Tharp, Bill T. Jones, and even more great ones! 'What a tough choice. The writer in me says Willliams and the former dancer in me says one of the choreographers, especially Ailey or Jones; I'll go with whichever one gets the least votes.

Thanks! I went with Aaron Copland. His compositions are essential American works of art.
