Is what might be one hell of an honor, Panic! at the Disco frontman, Brendon Urie got the opportunity to perform Billy Joel’s hit song “Big Shot” for the piano man himself last night as part of The Kennedy Center Honors on CBS.
Joel had two others performers pay tribute to his honor; country singer Garth Brooks also paid homage to him with “Allentown” and “Good Night Saigon” and Rufus Wainwright with “New York State of Mind” and “Piano Man.”
Other performers that took the stage last night included Snoop Dogg for Herbie Hancock, Pitch Perfect’s Anna Kendrick performed “It’s Not Where You Started, It’s Where You Finish” for Shirley MacLaine. Taking the reigns for Carlos Santana’s tribute were Steve Winwood, Sheils E. and Orianthi as well as Buddy Guy slaying on guitar for “I’m Your Hoochie Coohie Man.”
