'Christmas in Rockefeller Center 2020' Performers Lineup Revealed, But One Has Dropped Out

The famous Christmas tree in Rockefeller Center will have its annual tree lighting ceremony this evening and a star-studded event is set for NBC!

The 2020 Christmas in Rockefeller Center special won’t look like previous years’ events due to the pandemic, but some stars are still planning on appearing live from New York City.

Sadly, one of the stars set to appear has dropped out of the special.

Hamilton actor Leslie Odom Jr. tweeted this afternoon that he will not be attending. He said, “Sorry to miss the #RockCenterXMAS tree lighting tonight. All the best to the performers! Lighting the tree in my heart and singing along from home. πŸ‘ŠπŸΎπŸŽ„.”
