Grammy Award-winning and multiplatinum recording artist Pentatonix is returning to NBC this holiday season with "A Very Pentatonix Christmas," set for Monday, Nov. 27 (10 p.m. ET/PT).
The special will also have an encore airing Wednesday, Dec. 6 (8 p.m.)
The one-hour television event will feature a duet with Oscar, Golden Globe, Screen Actors Guild, BAFTA and Grammy Award-winner Jennifer Hudson. It will take viewers on a musical journey filled with joy, heart and laughter as the group performs some of its holiday favorites.
Late night icon Jay Leno, star of NBC's "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" for 22 seasons, as well as 13-year-old "America's Got Talent" winner Darci Lynne Farmer, will make guest star appearances on the special. Other guests will be announced at a later date.
Earlier today, Pentatonix released a deluxe version of their certified-platinum 2016 holiday album, "A Pentatonix Christmas Deluxe," and are set to embark on the "A Pentatonix Christmas Tour" on Dec. 3 in Chicago.
The group has sold more than 6.4 million albums (in total consumption) in the U.S. alone, won three Grammy Awards, received a Daytime Emmy nomination and performed for hundreds of thousands of fans at their sold-out shows across the globe. Their YouTube channel boasts more than 13.7 million subscribers, yielding more than 2.7 billion video views, and their 2015 self-titled album has been certified gold after debuting at No. 1 on Billboard's 200.
Last holiday season, "A Pentatonix Christmas Special" averaged a 1.4 rating, 5 share in adults 18-49, and 7.5 million viewers overall, according to "live plus same day" ratings from Nielsen Media Research. That improved the timeslot versus NBC's averages for the prior season by 27 percent in 18-49 and 1.5 million persons, or 25 percent in total viewers.
