Tonight from 8-9 p.m. ET, NBC will air the live broadcast of the Rockefeller Center holiday tree lighting! We are excited to tune in. A few fun facts about this year’s tree:

  • This year’s Norway Spruce is 76 feet tall and 47 feet in diameter.
  • The tree was donated by a family in Shelton, Connecticut – it grew in their front yard for 20+ years.
  • 45,000+ LED lights were strung to decorate the tree.
  • A 9.5 foot wide LED-lit Swarovski crystal star tops the tree.

The show will feature performances from Mary J. Blige, Toni Braxton, Mariah Carey, Kelly Clarkson, Goo Goo Dolls, Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds, Ariana Grande, and Jewel. Check out the size of that tree!
