Justin Bieber, Cee Lo Green and Jennifer Hudson will be the featured performers at this year’s “Christmas In Washington,” an annual holiday concert taped at the National Building Museum that is broadcast on TNT.
This year’s host will be Conan O’Brien. Teen starlet Victoria Justice and country up-and-comers the Band Perry are also scheduled to perform at the Dec. 11 concert, which will be broadcast on Friday, Dec. 16.
It marks a return performance for Bieber, whose ascent to global superstardom was just beginning when he performed at the 2009 edition of “Christmas In Washington.” Our own Chris Richards profiled the then-15-year-old singer on the occasion. Bieber recently released “Under the Mistletoe,” his first holiday album, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard charts.
This is the 30th anniversary of “Christmas In Washington,” which is attended each year by the President and First Lady. Last year’s concert included performances by Mariah Carey, Andrea Bocelli, Maxwell and Annie Lennox.
