Stars of pop, rock and country serenade McCartney and Haggard at Kennedy Center; Michael Jackson's posthumous album makes the rounds

- The stars came out to the Kennedy Center Honors Sunday night to fete two incredibly influential musicians -- as well as a trailblazing choreographer (Bill T. Jones), a Broadway legend (Jerry Herman) and some woman named Oprah Winfrey.

But the show closed with tributes to country icon Merle Haggard and pop god Paul McCartney. Haggard was serenaded by a wonderful cast: Miranda Lambert, Kris Kristofferson, Vince Gill, Brad Paisley, Willie Nelson, Sheryl Crow, Kid Rock and Jamey Johnson. McCartney's tribute was performed by Mavis Stapes, James Taylor, Dave Grohl dueting with Norah Jones, Steven Tyler of Aerosmith performing solo and Gwen Stefani performing alongside the rest of No Doubt.

Our colleague Paul Farhi has the entire report from last night's ceremony, Jacqueline Trescott has a report from Saturday evening's dinner on Arts-Post and The Reliable Source caught Glee's Matthew Morrison jumping on the mic at the after party.

- MTV News has a track-by-track look at "Michael," the forthcoming Michael Jackson album. Look for our review here on Click Track when the album drops next Tuesday.
