Radio City Christmas Spectacular is one of the beloved Christmas events in New York City. Usually, the spectators watch the show live while the TV audience watches it from home, but this year, the celebrations will only be broadcast online and on TV.
Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb, co-hosts of NBC News’ TODAY, will host the event, according to QNS. Special appearances and holiday messages will include Gina Dewan, Whoopi Goldberg, Josh Groban, Carla Hall, Padma Lakshmi and John Legend. The special offer lasts one hour.
Beloved by many, “Christmas Spectacular” is a unique tradition where the magic of Christmas in New York comes to life. QNS mentioned. The annual holiday show carries audiences across Central Park, the manger in Bethlehem and the North Pole while the Rockets dance in stunning costumes. This will be the first time in Radio City’s history that the song “Christmas Spectacular” has not performed this beloved holiday celebration.

Nobody will see the Rockettes performing this holiday season live live this year. Back in August, the entertainment management company announced that it would cancel the live show and issue refunds to those who had already bought tickets, and predicted the coronavirus would be a concern until the end of the year.
“We regret that the production of the amazing 2020 Christmas Championship of Radio City Rockettes® by Chase has been canceled due to the continuing uncertainty associated with the COVID-19 pandemic,” the Radio City Rockettes website says. “We are disappointed to all of those participating in the show, as well as to the many fans who have made the spectacular Christmas a dear part of their holiday tradition. We look forward to welcoming fans again to the 2021 production now on sale. All 2020 production tickets will be automatically refunded at the point of purchase.”
It was the first time in nearly 90 years that iconic artists had not performed live on the holidays. CNN mentioned.
“This is the first year that the spectacular Christmas parade has not been performed since it began its annual performance in 1933,” Theater mania mentioned. “The special was produced by Alex Coletti Productions with creative support from Madison Square Garden Entertainment. Alex Coletti serves as Executive Producer. Barbara Danoff and Alison Roethinger will co-direct the production.”
