Gwen Stefani Announces Hour-Long NBC Holiday Special
Gwen Stefani dropped a Christmas album, You Make It Feel Like Christmas, way back in October. (I guess it pays to get in early?) The feel-good LP combines original anthems with holiday classics, and is one of the better festive detours in recent memory. It will get a burst of promotion when the No Doubt singer performs songs from the seasonal opus on an hour-long TV special, airing December 12 on NBC at 9pm. Special guests on Gwen Stefani’s You Make It Feel Like Christmas include Blake Shelton, Chelsea Handler, Ken Jeong, Seth MacFarlane and Ne-Yo.
If you’re wondering what all those comedians are doing in the line-up, Gwen’s holiday extravaganza boasts “fun holiday-themed sketches” as well as musical performances. “Christmas is one of my favorite times of the year,” Gwen says of the show. “I am excited to share my new holiday album with everyone and the joy of this holiday season. I look forward to giving audiences a peek into our family’s favorite Christmas traditions and enjoying some of the music, old and new, that makes the holiday so special.”
