The Walk of Fame has released its latest list of names who will be taking their star power to the next level.

In a Facebook Live session on Thursday, radio host Ellen K, who serves as the Walk of Fame's selection-panel chair, was joined by Hollywood Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Rana Ghadban to announce the 2021 honorees.

Among the names on the list were actors like Zac Efron, Shia LaBeouf, Naomi Watts, Don Cheadle, Morris Chestnut, Josh Brolin and Benedict Cumberbatch, according to Variety.

Musicians including Kelly Clarkson, Missy Elliott, Salt-N-Pepa, Jefferson Airplane and Trisha Yearwood made the cut — as well as a posthumous nod for Charlie Parker, the legendary jazz saxophonist who died in 1955.

Reps for the Hollywood Walk of Fame have not yet announced when the 2021 stars ceremonies will be held, and in fact are still working out when some of the 2020 recipients' events will be scheduled due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

"Honorees have two years to do their star ceremony when selected," the official Hollywood Walk of Fame Facebook page told one user who inquired about timing. "Most likely last year's people will be extended of course."

2020 Walk of Fame honorees include Julia Roberts, Chris Hemsworth, Spike Lee, Octavia Spencer, Mahershala Ali, Andy Cohen, Christina Applegate, Wendy Williams, Dr. Phil McGraw, Terry Crews, Cindy Crawford, Kathie Lee Gifford and the late comedian Andy Kaufman.
