What do these two actors, three politicians and four musicians have in common? They all took the stage in 2006 and got us talking. But it wasnt' always for the right reasons. Not all these performances are to be remembered.

JESSICA SIMPSON got so flustered at the Kennedy Center Honors as she was singing 9 to 5 to Dolly Parton that she stopped midway and fled the stage -- hardly an argument for women in the workforce.

MICHAEL RICHARDS, a.k.a. Seinfeld's Kramer, lit into a heckler during his stand-up act, calling him a "nigger", joking about lynching and proving that as far as racist rants go, drunken anti-Semitism (a la Mel Gibson) is so last season.

JOHNNY DEPP, as Captain Jack Sparrow, steered critically disliked Pirates of the Carribean II to the biggest opening-weekend take ever; $132 million. A royalty check to Keith Richards personlity is in the mail.

THREE 6 MAFIA has more fun than anyone else at the 2006 Oscars. The rappers gave the nights' most energetic song performance - It's Hard Out Here For a Pimp, from the film Hustle and Flow.Then they won for Best Song, which led host Jon Stewart to observe, "Martin Scorsese, zero Oscars. Three 6 Mafia, one."

JOHN KERRY doesn't want you to get stuck in Iraq. I mean, get, us stuck in Iraq. The vet botched his anti Bush punch line, making it sound antimilitary. Kids, if you cant' tell a joke right, especially during elections, don't tell it at all.

JIM MEGREEVEY, the former New Jersey Governor, was the ,most contrie of Oprah's celebrity apologizers/ Two years after saying "I am gay American" he talked tactfully about the trysts, even though he wasnt' promoting a book. Oh wait, he was.

PERVEZ MUSHARRAF, President of Pakistan, charmed the media - including a hilarious stop on The Daily Show - while promoting his aptly titled memoir, In the Line of Fire. Guess he takes those assasination attempts with a sense of humor.
