The NBC holiday specials will feature the Rockefeller tree lighting and a concert at Graceland with performances from top artists.
Wednesday night on NBC is set to be a magical evening as the network presents back-to-back live holiday specials from iconic locations in New York City and Memphis.
The first special, "Christmas in Rockefeller Center," will feature the annual tree lighting ceremony in Rockefeller Plaza. This year, a stunning 80-foot Norway spruce, which has made a nearly 200-mile journey from Vestal, New York to New York City, will take center stage. Hosted by Kelly Clarkson, the event promises to be a sight to behold as the tree's 50 thousand multicolored lights illuminate the iconic plaza. The special will also feature performances by Cher, Chloe Bailey, Carly Pearce, Barry Manilow, and the Radio City Rockettes, making it a star-studded celebration of the holiday season in the heart of the city.
Following "Christmas in Rockefeller Center," viewers will be transported to Graceland in Memphis for "Christmas at Graceland," a historic televised concert hosted by John Legend. This special marks the first time Elvis Presley's estate has hosted such an event, and it promises to be a memorable celebration of the season and a tribute to the music legend. Performances by Post Malone, Kane Brown, Lana Del Rey, Kacey Musgraves, Alanis Morissette, Lainey Wilson, and The War and Treaty will round out the evening, offering a diverse array of musical talent in a fitting tribute to the magic of the holiday season.
With live performances, stunning visuals, and the iconic backdrops of New York City and Graceland, NBC's holiday specials are sure to bring the spirit of the season to viewers across the country.
