‘Tis the season for televised Christmas specials, and tonight NBC airs an all new special staring pop superstar Kelly Clarkson. The special, titled “Kelly Clarkson’s Cautionary Christmas Music Tale”, is a brand new take on the holiday specials of old. Check out the synopsis from NBC to get a better idea of the team Clarkson will have behind her tonight.
Superstars Blake Shelton, Reba and Trisha Yearwood will appear as guest stars on the upcoming holiday special “Kelly Clarkson’s Cautionary Christmas Music Tale.” Others set to make an appearance include Jay Leno, Matt Lauer, Robin Williams, Whoopi Goldberg, William Shatner, Danica Patrick, Heidi Klum, Ken Jeong (“Community”) and Jai Rodriguez (“Queer Eye for the Straight Guy”).
Clarkson and guests will celebrate the festive season with a comedic musical take on a traditional Christmas morality tale. Song selection will come directly off her just-released Christmas album, “Wrapped in Red,” featuring classics such as “Silent Night” and “White Christmas” as well as the title track.
The holiday season is a perfect place for former American Idol winners to perform. Carrie Underwood’s “Sound of Music Live” was such a ratings hit that we’re now stuck with NBC airing one live musical per year. What’s great about tonight’s special is that it approaches the Christmas celebration from a different direction. It also doesn’t hurt that Clarkson has one of the best voices in music. Still need to hear more? Here’s the official promo for tonight’s “Kelly Clarkson’s Cautionary Christmas Music Tale” from NBC.
