Los Angeles' The Grove's TV Christmas Special with Il Volo, CeeLo, Jewel, & Many Singers, Airing Live Today at 5pm & Syndicated else where on Christmas Day.

By Laura Medina

If being gobsmacked by the Glendale Galleria's Christmas Circus of angelic aerialists, Christmas contortionists, and stilt-walking elves weren't enough, today, this afternoon, The Grove is airing live, in L.A. only today and tonight then syndicated elsewhere on Christmas Day itself, its very own televised Christmas special with Mary J. Blige, Toni Braxton, Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds, CeeLo Green, Gavin DeGraw, Il Volo and Jewel.  Entertainment Tonight's host, Nancy O'Dell (Nancy Humphries to you all in Charleston, SC) is hosting this televised Christmas special.

Yep, Il Volo does have a strong fan base, here in L.A. because they're still here.  This time producing at The Grove.

Yesterday's brief performance and appearance at The Grove Dr. Dre's Beats Headphone Pop-Up was a sneaky dress rehearsal.

Los Angeles: KCAL9 (IND) November 28 (Thanksgiving Day) at 8:00 p.m. then again almost a week later on KCBS (CBS) December 8 at 4:00 p.m.

The producer who just did today's Macy's Thanksgiving Parade this morning...and this afternoon is, all of a sudden, back in L.A. to produce this uniquely Angeleno Christmas television production.

Cadillac serves as presenting sponsor of “A Hollywood Christmas at The Grove,” with Good Earth Tea as supporting sponsor.

Who says Los Angeles doesn't have the Christmas Spirit.  It has tons.
