Kristin Chenoweth was among the stars who turned out to pay tribute to Reba McEntire at the 2018 Kennedy Center Honors, and she had the black-tie crowd in stitches with a rousing, comical performance of "Doin' What Comes Naturally" from Annie Get Your Gun.

McEntire conquered Broadway when she starred in Annie Get Your Gun in 2001, and Chenoweth — a veteran Broadway star and Tony Award winner — honored McEntire with her humorous selection, singing in front of a Western-themed set and hamming it up as she delivered a high-spirited, fun performance of the light-hearted song.

Before she sang, she put her hands together in the shape of a heart and mouthed "I love you" to McEntire, who took in her performance from the balcony, blowing a kiss back to her friend and beaming throughout the song.

The 41st Kennedy Center Honors Gala took place on Sunday, Dec. 2 in Washington, D.C., and aired on CBS on Wednesday night (Dec. 26). In addition to McEntire, Cher, composers Wayne Shorter and Phillip Glass, Hamilton co-writer Lin-Manuel Miranda, director Thomas Kail, choreographer Andy Blankenbuehler and music director Alex Lacamoire were also recognized for their cultural contributions.

Kelly Clarkson, Lady Antebellum and Brooks & Dunn were also on hand to pay tribute to McEntire with her songs, and Little Big Town honored Cher with a medley of her hits.

Clarkson also gave an emotional speech about McEntire before delivering a powerful performance of her 1990 hit "Fancy" that was one of the evening's highlights.
