ABC is celebrating the beginning of the holiday season with the two-hour special Disney: Magical Holiday Celebration. Former 98 Degrees singer Nick Lachey and Dancing with the Stars judge Julianne Hough will both host and perform at the outdoor event — held at Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort. A plethora of entertainers will get the crowd singing and swaying including Ciara, Darius Rucker, Fifth Harmony, boy band In Real Life, and Fitz and the Tantrums, among others.
Fitz and the Tantrums is the pop soul band from Los Angeles known for the 2016 hit “HandClap.” Female lead singer Noelle Scaggs joined the band with male lead singer Michael Fitzpatrick in 2008. Prior to that she was the front-woman for the soul band The Rebirth. Scaggs also sang backup for The Black Eyed Peas (“Bridging the Gap”, Elephunk”, Monkey Business”), Dilated Peoples (“The Craft”), Mayer Hawthorne (“How Do You Do”), and Velvet Underground member John Cale (“Extra Playful”), among others. Fun fact about Scaggs: She was one of the backup singers for John Travolta in the 2005 film Be Cool, the sequel to Get Shorty. The Wonderful World of Disney: Magical Holiday Celebration will air on Thursday, November 30 at 9pm.
