Kelly Clarkson will host and perform at this year’s NBC special, Christmas in Rockefeller Center. The annual two-hour holiday special will air live on Wednesday, Nov. 29 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on NBC and simulcast on Peacock. NBC’s Today anchors Savannah Guthrie, Hoda Kotb, Al Roker and Craig Melvin will again join the tree lighting for a special appearance. Additional Christmas in Rockefeller Center performers will be announced at a later date.
The historic Rockefeller Center is also the new home to Clarkson’s daytime talk show, ‘The Kelly Clarkson Show,’ and this year marks Clarkson’s 20th anniversary of her first ‘Christmas in Rockefeller Center’ performance.
An additional live hour of the special will be broadcast on all NBC Owned Television Stations and on numerous NBC affiliates nationwide starting at 7 p.m., prior to the primetime telecast. The special live hour will be led by Access Hollywood host Mario Lopez as well as WNBC news anchors Natalie Pasquarella and David Ushery.
