It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas—and it’s all thanks to NBC.
The network just announced details about the annual lighting of the Christmas tree in New York City and its accompanying live telecast, Christmas in Rockefeller Center, set to take place on Wednesday, Dec. 1 this year.
Hosted by beloved TODAY show co-anchors Savannah Guthrie, Hoda Kotb, Al Roker and Craig Melvin, the two-hour holiday special will feature festive performances by Alessia Cara, Harry Connick Jr., Mickey Guyton, Norah Jones, Brad Paisley, Rob Thomas, Carrie Underwood and more.
Also set to perform are the world-renowned Radio City Rockettes!
You can tune in to Christmas in Rockefeller Center at at 8 p.m. ET/PT, but an additional live hour of the special will be broadcast on all NBC-owned television stations and on numerous NBC affiliates from coast-to-coast starting at 7 p.m. ET.
Additionally, for the first time in tree lighting history, Christmas in Rockefeller Center will simulcast live on Peacock.
