Jarrod Fairclough – Sesame Street experienced two extremes on Sunday 8th December, as that morning legendary performer Caroll Spinney passed away, but that night the show was honored by The Kennedy Center for 50 years of education and entertainment.

The cast was on hand to celebrate the occasion, with Big Bird, Bert, Ernie, Abby, Cookie and Elmo performing alongside Cedric the Entertainer, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Lucy Lui and Thomas Rhett.

The full video is currently on YouTube, which you can see below.

The cast also walked the red carpet beforehand, and below you’ll find just a few videos from earlier in the night.
