A Star-Studded Christmas In Rockefeller Center Airs On November 29th on NBC

A Star-Studded Christmas In Rockefeller Center Airs On November 29th on NBCFrom TVGuide.Com

Al Roker and Savannah Guthrie host the 79th annual lighting of the Christmas tree in Manhattan. Adding glow are slated performances by Neil Diamond, Tony Bennett, Justin Bieber, Michael Bublé, Cee Lo Green, Carole King, Katharine McPhee, Big Time Rush and Javier Colon. Included: the Mariah Carey and Justin Bieber video “All I Want for Christmas Is You.

Are you ready to herald the 2017 Christmas Season? Well, this show will get the party going. What a great lineup. Many of my favourites are set to ring in the Yuletide season.

I am especially happy and excited to see Michael Buble’s return. He, unfortunately, had to take a leave of absence from his career when his young son was diagnosed with cancer. But, his son has fully recovered from treatment and is on the road to a healthy life. This must be the best Christmas gift of all! Happiness and good health! It doesn’t get better than this.

Also, I was thrilled to see that former The Voice winner, Javier Colon, is on this show. This is what The Voice needs to initiate with so many of the singers who have graced their stage. They need multiple opportunities post-The Voice so that they can continue to escalate their careers.

So get the DVR set to record whether or not you are watching Wednesday’s show in real time because you will probably want to watch it again and again over the Christmas season.

Fa La La La La, La, La La La! Name that tune. Ha!
