ETA: Note that they will be hosting TWO shows. Dates and times below. Via Entertainment Weekly:
ABC is set to air three musical specials across its various platforms between Thanksgiving and Christmas, featuring performances from Kelly Clarkson, Trisha Yearwood, and Garth Brooks, and hosted by the Hough siblings, Julianne and Derek.
All three specials will feature musical performances from Clarkson, who released Christmas album Wrapped in Red back in 2013, and filmed at iconic locations across the Walt Disney Resort. To add some more holiday cheer, CMA Award-winning artists Yearwood and Brooks will take to the steps of Cinderella’s Castle (fingers crossed for fake snow flurries) to perform songs from their recently released holiday album, Christmas Together, on all three specials.
The Houghs will host two out of three programs: The Wonderful World of Disney: Magical Holiday Celebration on Thanksgiving night, and The Disney Parks’ Magical Christmas Celebration on Christmas morning. The third show, Disney Parks Presents: A Descendants Magical Holiday Celebration, airs on Nov. 25 and will be hosted by stars of the television movie Descendants.
Additional performances will be announced in the coming weeks and an accompanying holiday album, Disney Channel Holiday Hits, is set for release Nov. 18.
