Mary J. Blige, Mariah Carey and Cookie Monster join Grammy winner for festive Dec. 18 telecast
Grammy Award-winning singer Michael Bublé returns to NBC with "Michael Bublé's 3rd Annual Christmas Special" Wednesday, Dec. 18 (10 p.m. ET/PT).
Musical superstars Mary J. Blige and Mariah Carey, as well as Cookie Monster, take the stage with Bublé in his hometown of Vancouver as he celebrates his favorite holiday. Performances will include classic songs such as "The Christmas Song," "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer," "I'll Be Home for Christmas" and "Let It Snow."
"I think we've really outdone ourselves for this year's holiday special. I couldn't have three bigger stars or better voices than Mary J., Mariah and Cookie Monster. We all had a great time, and Cookie Monster shared his cookies with all of us," Bublé said.
In 2011, Bublé realized his ultimate dream when he released the album "Christmas" and hosted his first NBC holiday special, both of which reflected the joy that the season brings to him and his family.
