TNT is set to usher in the holidays with its annual presentation of Christmas in Washington, which will air Sunday, Dec. 20, at 8 p.m. Among the musicians expected to perform are Mary J. Blige, Neil Diamond, Sugarland, Rob Thomas and Usher. George Lopez will host the show.
“We take pride in presenting Christmas in Washington each year as we bring together musical artists from a variety of genres for a fantastic holiday concert,” said Michael Wright, executive vice president for TNT, TBS and TCM. “This year, we’re especially thrilled to welcome a lineup of top-name performers and an equally amazing host, George Lopez. Together, they will make this a holiday celebration to remember.”
The show will be taped at the National Building Museum in Washington, D.C., Sunday, Dec. 13, and President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama will be in attendance. This will be the 11th airing of Christmas in Washington on TNT, and the show helps benefit the National Children's Medical Center.
