Christmas is officially right around the corner — and ‘Rockefeller’ proves it! On Dec. 2, New Yorkers will gather around the 90-year-old Christmas Tree to watch the annual lighting. In case it’s too cold for you, you can watch the live stream here!
It’s not really the holiday season until the annual tree lighting in Rockefeller Center! Beginning at 8PM ET, NBC will begin the 82nd annual Christmas tree lighting, which is filled with performances in the Christmas in Rockefeller special. From Mariah Carey to Idina Menzel, we can’t wait to cozy up in front of the TV to watch. But if you’re out and about, you can watch right here.
‘Christmas In Rockefeller’ Live Stream
Of course, we can’t wait to see Mariah open the show with “All I Want for Christmas is You” — and this year is bigger than ever for her as it’s the 20th anniversary of her Christmas album’s release, Merry Christmas.
But she won’t be the only one to perform– Lady Gaga is pairing up with Tony Bennett, Cyndi Lauper will take the stage with Billy Porter, and Seth MacFarlane will woo us with Sara Bareilles. Idina Menzel, LeAnn Rimes and Trisha Yearwood are also all set to perform. With all of those huge voices and an even bigger tree, we’ve got to say that we can’t wait to kick off the holidays with this special — it’s officially Christmas time!
Are you watching the special tonight, HollywoodLifers? Let us know!
