A couple more big name performers have been announced for this year's upcoming Christmas in Rockefeller Center special that will air November 29th at 8pm on NBC. The network says Pentatonix and Gwen Stefani will join previously announced acts, including Hamilton’s Leslie Odom Jr. and country stars Brett Eldridge and Jennifer Nettles--and even more performers are expected to be announced soon.
This year, the spectacular tree comes from State College Pennsylvania and will be a 75-foot tall, 50-foot wide Norway Spruce, decorated with more than 50,000 multi-colored twinkling LEDs. As far as the topper: it is going to be a 25,000 crystal-studded Swarovski star with a million facets.
Stefani put out her first Christmas album "You Make It Feel Like Christmas" this year & Pentatonix did a re-release of their 2016 album as a deluxe version.
This will be the 85th annual celebration and it will be hosted by the Today Show's Matt Lauer, Savannah Guthrie, Al Roker and Hoda Kotb.
