The annual Kennedy Center Honors took place Dec. 2 in the nation's capitol, and will air on CBS Dec. 26.

Bluesman Buddy Guy and ballerina Natalia Makarova were also honored.

President Obama, who was there to salute the honorees, joked that the honorees were “extraordinary people who have no business being on the same stage together.

Jack Black, the Foo Fighters, Kid Rock, Lenny Kravitz and Heart all honored Led Zeppelin with performances of the legendary rock band’s songs. Members Robert Plant, Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones were seated with the president and first lady. The band, which disbanded when drummer John Bonham died in 1980, played a reunion concert in 2007 that was recently released on the DVD “Celebration Day,” and rumors have swirled of more performances since then.

Comedians Ray Romano, Tina Fey, Alec Baldwin and Jimmy Kimmel also paid tribute to late-night TV icon David Letterman.

This is the 35th year of the honors, which are lifetime achievement awards for individuals who have influenced American culture through the arts and are hosted by Caroline Kennedy at her father’s memorial center.
