Christmas Spectacular Starring the Radio City Rockettes to Air on NBC Dec. 2

Christmas Spectacular Starring the Radio City Rockettes to Air on NBC Dec. 2

The annual Radio City Music Hall performances may have been cancelled, but you can see iconic scenes from Christmas Spectacular from home!


When Radio City Music Hall cancelled the 2020 performances of the Christmas Spectacular starring the Radio City Rockettes due to the coronavirus pandemic, many families thought they’d have to forego their annual holiday tradition. But NBC and the Radio City Rockettes will bring the holiday cheer and fan-favorite scenes from the performance into homes across the nation this holiday season.

The Christmas Spectacular Starring the Radio City Rockettes – At Home Holiday Special will air on NBC, directly following the national broadcast of Christmas at Rockefeller Center, during which the lights on the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree will be turned on for the season. This holiday special is just one more way families can celebrate Christmas during this unusual year.



The hour-long Christmas Spectacular special, hosted by Hoda Kotb and Savannah Guthrie, will feature select iconic performances by the Rockettes, which were previously recorded at Radio City Music Hall. Plus, there will be special appearances and holiday greetings from celebrities, including Jenna Dewan, Whoopi Goldberg, Josh Groban, Carla Hall, Padma Lakshmi, and John Legend.

This marks the first time in Radio City’s history that the Christmas Spectacular Starring the Radio City Rockettes hasn’t been performed live. But NBC and the Rockettes aim to bring the joy and holiday spirit of the annual tradition to viewers at home—and it gives many the opportunity to see snippets of the show for the first time.

You can watch Christmas Spectacular Starring the Radio City Rockettes – At Home Holiday Special on Dec. 2 at 10pm on NBC.
