As we reported earlier this week, the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree was set to arrive in New York City Friday morning.
The 74-foot Norway Spruce from Pennsylvania will be adorned with thousands of lights and ornaments over the coming weeks before the official tree lighting ceremony takes place on Wednesday, November 30.
We’ve now learned that a few of the world’s biggest stars will be on hand to help folks get into the Christmas spirit. Tony Bennett, Justin Bieber, Cee Lo Green, Faith Hill, Michael Buble, and a few others will join the Rockettes during a one-hour special leading up to the big moment.
It all gets under way at 8 PM on November 30. If you’re not lucky enough to score cheap flights to New York, you can follow along from home. The entire ceremony will be broadcast on NBC.
