Christmas in Washington will air tonight at 8/7c on TNT. The holiday special is in its 29th year and is annually attended by the President (Obama)and First Lady (Michelle), along with other Washington VIPs. The show was taped on Sunday, December 12 at the National Building Museum.
Who will be performing in the special?
Ellen DeGeneres will be the host, which makes me think that there is no way this will be a dull show. Ellen’s humor would make that impossible.
Mariah Carey is scheduled to perform and will be showing off her cute baby bump.
One of Nickelodeon’s darlings, Miranda Cosgrove, will be singing, too.
Gleeks will be excited to watch Matthew Morrison perform. In case you are not a Gleek, he plays high school music teacher Will Schuster in the wildly popular Glee series.
If that’s not star-studded enough for you, let’s add Annie Lennox, Andrea Bocelli, and Maxwell to the list.
Almost enough talent to make me wish I was a politician and could attend such a grand event. Well, at least we can watch it on television!
Though it will be fun to watch, there is a charitable side to the event and the First Lady chose the Children’s National Medical Center as the beneficiary of the performance, helping all children receive medical care, regardless of their parents’ ability to pay.
