Every year, New York City lights up for Christmas. The buildings, the trees, absolutely everything is decked out to celebrate the most wonderful time of the year.
Perhaps the most iconic moment of the holidays is when Rockefeller Center lights up their stunning Christmas tree. To many, it marks the beginning of the season and signifies that Christmas is quickly approaching.
This year's tree is a 75-foot Norway Spruce from Pennsylvania. It's 50-feet in diameter and weighs between 12 and 13 tons. The tree will be arriving in New York City on November 11th, 18 days before the official tree lighting ceremony on November 29th.
But aside from lighting the tree, viewers can always count on amazing performances from big-name stars during the event. Last year, performers included Tony Bennett, Neil Diamond, Josh Groban, Tori Kelly, Sarah McLachlan, Dolly Parton, Jordan Smith, Garth Brooks & Trisha Yearwood, the Rockettes, and more.
This year's lineup looks like it's going to top the last, and we can't wait!
NBC announced the performers for this year's Christmas in Rockefeller Center and it's bound to be a good time. Hosts will be Today anchors Matt Lauer, Savannah Guthrie, Hoda Kotb and Al Roker.
