Other musicians receiving stars are Jennifer Hudson, Jane's Addiction, Usher and Thalia.

Also receiving stars are master makeup man Rick Baker, movie actors Javier Bardem, Viola Davis, James Franco, Olympia Dukakis and Helen Mirren, director/actor Ron Howard, television actors Simon Baker, Bryan Cranston, Ellen DeGeneres, Jane Lynch, Katey Sagal and Mathew Perry, magicians Penn & Teller and radio personalities Steve Harvey and "Shotgun Tom" Kelly.
