Guests include Scarlett Johansson, the Radio City Rockettes, VOCA People and Santa Claus
"LIVE! with Kelly" will help viewers get into the spirit of the season with a festive holiday show, "'LIVE's' Home for the Holidays Special," airing on Tuesday, Dec. 20. Mark Consuelos joins Kelly Ripa as guest co-host for this annual "LIVE" tradition.
The "LIVE! with Kelly" set will be transformed into a colorful seasonal backdrop for an hour of musical performances and holiday cheer. Leading the lineup of guests is stunning actress Scarlett Johansson, who will join Kelly and Mark to chat about the new film "We Bought a Zoo."
The show also will feature two unique performances: straight from the "Radio City Christmas Spectacular," the world-famous Radio City Rockettes will stop by to perform a special dance number for the "LIVE" audience, and one-of-a-kind a cappella group VOCA People performs a unique take on the traditional holiday medley.
For a different perspective on the season, Mark and Kelly's youngest son, Joaquin Consuelos, heads out into the city to discover what's on kids' minds during the 2011 holidays. Of course, no "LIVE" Christmas special would be complete without an appearance by the man of the hour, Santa himself, who joins Kelly, Mark and VOCA People for a rousing rendition of "We Wish You a Merry Christmas."
