Canadian crooner Michael Bublé is hosting his fourth Christmas special on NBC, Christmas In New York. From New York City’s Radio City Music Hall, the show airs Wednesday, December 17 at 8pm. He’s going to charm and goof around with the audience and sing a number of songs alone, including Meghan Trainor’s All About That Bass. He’s also invited a number of lady friends on stage including Ariana Grande and Barbra Streisand.
Last year Bublé had Mariah Carey on the show. He told TV Line this week, “Mariah was great, but you know. Mariah is Mariah. She’s this beautiful, wonderful diva. What can I tell you? Ariana Grande just showed up three minutes early, she knew the whole song perfectly.” Bublé is clearly a big fan of Grande, whom he said, “couldn’t be kinder and more professional.” Ms. Streisand and Miss Piggy will also help Bublé entertain the crowd but he didn’t comment on how easy they were to work with. There are absolutely terrible rumors about Piggy, whose ego apparently knows no bounds.
