Tracey was rehearsing earlier today at the Kennedy Center along with actors Kevin Kline, and Glenn Close, two stars Tracey has worked with in the past.
Honorees this year include Tracey's close friend, Meryl Streep, Neil Diamond, and Yo-Yo Ma.
The ceremony takes place tonight, Sunday, December 4, 2011, but won't be broadcast until December 27, 2011, on CBS at 9PM in the United States. We should have known something was up due to reports of Tracey sightings in Washington DC this past week.
Expect photos and video!
