In its inaugural year, A Very GRAMMY Christmas, announced today (Oct. 24), will feature those artists giving their best Christmas renditions for an hour at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles on Nov. 18, with a TV broadcast set for Dec. 5.
Of course, given the title of the event, seeing Pharrell sing “Jingle Bells” — or whichever other Christmas songs and hits of his make his setlist — presumably while wearing a Santa hat isn’t the only draw.
During the performance, the nominees for the 2015 GRAMMY for Album of the Year will be announced, following the announcements of all other 82 categories for the awards ceremony earlier that morning.
You can buy tickets to attend the Christmas event at Ticketmaster, with tickets on sale now — or, if you don’t live in Los Angeles, you can watch the whole affair from the comfort of your own home on CBS.
The event takes place on Nov. 18 but will be broadcast — following the GRAMMY nominations — on Dec. 5 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.
