Miranda Lambert Covers The Eagles' 'Desperado' In Show-Stopping Kennedy Center Honors Performance
By Sophie Schillaci
Miranda Lambert is looking and sounding better than ever!
The 32-year-old singer hit the stage to pay tribute to The Eagles at this year's Kennedy Center Honors, which aired Tuesday on CBS. Showing off her figure in an all-black jumpsuit, Lambert sang the band's 1973 hit, "Desperado," while images of a sunset-painted sky played behind her.
The Eagles were chosen to be honored at the 2015 ceremony, but opted to delay their acceptance until next year due to Glenn Frey's health troubles.
In introducing the performance, Stephen Colbert quipped that the group would "accept the honor the way they made their music, together -- and shirtless."
"But since the rest of us are here," he continued, "let's celebrate them anyway."
Among the other honorees celebrated at the special event were Rita Moreno, George Lucas, Cicely Tyson, Seiji Ozawa, and Carole King.
The show marked Lambert's first public appearance since news broke of her first post-divorce relationship. As ET previously reported, Lambert has recently started dating rhythm & blues singer Anderson East.
"They started seeing each other less than two months ago,” a source tells ET. “They are just having fun and seeing where it goes.”
Lambert and Blake Shelton, her husband of four years, split suddenly in July. By November, Shelton confirmed that he and fellow The Voice coach Gwen Stefani were dating. "Anderson is the complete opposite of Blake," says ET's source.
Lambert and East already seem to be a match made in heaven! Get to know her new beau in the video below.
