The special celebrates A Pentatonix Christmas
Grammy Award-winning and multi-platinum recording artist Pentatonix is poised to host their first-ever holiday network special on Wednesday, December 14th at 8 pm ET/PT on NBC.
The one-hour television event will take viewers on a holiday musical journey filled with joy, heart and laughter as the group performs some of their holiday favorites. Joining Pentatonix are one-of-a-kind appearances by superstar Reba McEntire, Grammy Award winner Kelly Clarkson and other surprises to be announced.
Pentatonix recently released their third holiday album, A Pentatonix Christmas, which debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart. The album features the group’s arrangement of the Leonard Cohen classic, “Hallelujah,” which debuted at #6 on Billboard’s Top Digital Songs Chart. The music video received more than 20 million views in its first week.
A Pentatonix Christmas Special is executive produced by Brad Lachman Productions, Inc. in collaboration with RCA Records and Pentatonix.

They have won two Grammy Awards and performed for hundreds of thousands of fans at their sold-out shows across the globe. Their YouTube channel boasts more than 11 million subscribers, yielding nearly two billion video views, and their 2015 self-titled album has been certified gold after debuting No. 1 on Billboard’s Top 200. All seven Pentatonix album releases have debuted in the chart’s Top 10. In 2015 the group released its first tour documentary — On My Way Home — and appeared in the feature film Pitch Perfect 2.
A Pentatonix Christmas follows 2014’s That’s Christmas to Me, which has been certified 2x platinum and includes the quintet’s Grammy Award-winning arrangement for “Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy.”
