If you've got, oh, 13 minutes or so to spare this morning, then, please, do yourself a solid and check out the pair of clips we've got posted for you after the jump. They come courtesy of CBS's Kennedy Center Honors coverage, aired last night, where Oprah Winfrey, Bill T. Jones, Merle Haggard and Paul McCartney were honored.
The McCartney presentation was especially moving -- even if former Dallas mayor Ron Kirk's presence in the seats behind the Beatle was a bit distracting -- as Booker T. Washington grad Norah Jones joined Dave Grohl and others, including 35 Conferette performer Mavis Staples, Paul Simon, Steven Tyler and No Doubt to pay tribute.
