Rockefeller Center Christmas tree lighting: See photos

The Rockefeller Center Christmas tree lighting ceremony welcomed the holidays Wednesday night, Nov. 28, 2018, with thousands of lights and crystals, nearly a dozen performers, four TV hosts and a 72-foot-tall Norway spruce nicknamed Shelby.

The “Christmas in Rockefeller Center” special on NBC featured performances by John Legend, Diana Ross, Tony Bennett, Diana Krall, Brett Eldredge, Darci Lynne Farmer, Martina McBride, Pentatonix and Kellie Pickler. The Radio City Rockettes and Howie Mandel made special appearances.
