Kelly Clarkson and Brett Eldredge gave the live debut performance of their new Christmas duet, “Under The Mistletoe,” on Wednesday (Dec. 2) during Christmas in Rockefeller Center.
“Under The Mistletoe” was co-written by Clarkson alongside Aben Eubanks. The song is a modern Christmas love song that finds the pair questioning if there is something more between them. Ultimately, they decide to take a leap of faith as they meet “Under The Mistletoe.”
Clarkson also performed “Underneath The Tree” from her 2013 holiday album, Wrapped in Red.
Christmas in Rockefeller Center also included performances by Goo Goo Dolls, Earth, Wind & Fire, Jimmy Fallon, Tori Kelly, Leslie Odom Jr., Dolly Parton, Pentatonix, Dan + Shay, Gwen Stefani, Meghan Trainor, Cast of “Ain’t Too Proud” and the Radio City Rockettes.
The evening also featured duets from Parton with Fallon and Trainor featuring Earth, Wind & Fire.
The 88th annual holiday special celebrated the lighting of the 75-foot tall, 45-foot wide Norway Spruce from Oneonta, N.Y. The tree weighs approximately 11 tons. It is adorned with more than 50,000 multi-colored LEDs and topped with a stunning Swarovski star. The tree will be lit from 6:00 a.m. EST to midnight every day and will remain lit for 24 hours on Christmas Day and is located in New York City at Rockefeller Center to see all season long.
The iconic Christmas special aired on Wednesday, Dec. 2 from 8:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. EST on NBC. Due to social-distancing protocols, there was not a live audience present.
