The Holiday Segment Features Plenty of Special Guests & Musical Performances by Legend
The star-studded variety show features fun, holiday segments such as “surprise caroling,” a mac-and-cheese cook-off, and a nightmare sequence involving Teigen auditioning for The Voice, according to EW. There will be several special guests, including Awkwafina, Kim Kardashian, Queer Eye’s Fab Five and many more. Viewers can also expect plenty of musical performances from Legend throughout the night.
Last year’s special featured much of the same, with Darren Criss, Jane Lynch, Raphael Saadiq, and Meghan Trainor joining Legend and Teigen to surprise a few unsuspecting families with some holiday caroling fun. You can check out a clip of last year’s caroling segment here. The celebrity couple hasn’t released any specifics regarding this year’s event, but viewers can likely expect similar segments of holiday fun.
Legend recently made headlines after releasing a remix of Frank Loesser’s original holiday classic “Baby It’s Cold Outside.” Legend and Clarkson put their own spin of the song, which has been shrouded in controversy the last few years in light of the #MeToo movement, and made it more consent-friendly.
After receiving a significant amount of backlash for the remix, Legend defended his version of the song, telling The Guardian, “The song was supposed to be silly!”
“It wasn’t supposed to be preachy at all,” Legend added. “I never disparaged the old version. And, by the way, the original writer, or his family, gets paid for my version too.” The song features on his holiday album, A Legendary Christmas: Deluxe Edition, and changes the lyrics of the original version, giving it a more modern sound.
