The two-hour holiday special will feature festive performances by Carrie Underwood, Alessia Cara, Harry Connick Jr., Mickey Guyton, Norah Jones, Brad Paisley, Rob Thomas, Carrie Underwood and more.
And, of course, a performance by the world-famous Radio City Rockettes.
The annual lighting ceremony is Wednesday, Dec. 1, in Rockefeller Plaza.
For sure, it’s the biggest and most famous tree lighting ceremony in NYC – perhaps even the world. But it’s not the only one in NYC.

Christmas in Rockefeller Center will be broadcast live starting at 7pm in NYC and other NBC-owned stations, and 8pm nationwide on network affiliate stations.
Additionally, the festivities will be simulcast live on Peacock the NBC streaming service.
The broadcast show will be hosted by TODAY show co-anchors Savannah Guthrie, Hoda Kotb, Al Roker and Craig Melvin.
“After a year in which we weren’t able to have people join us in person, this tree-lighting ceremony will be incredibly monumental to those who can both attend and the millions of people who watch it across the country,” said Doug Vaughan, Executive Vice President, Special Programs, NBCU Television and Streaming said in a press release.
“It’s truly an event that continues to inspire and a wonderful way to begin the holiday season.”
