Rockefeller Christmas tree lighting tonight on NBC


Rockefeller Center will light up its iconic Christmas Tree Wednesday with performances by Diana Ross, John Legend and others.

The Christmas tree at Rockefeller Center in New York will light up for the season Wednesday night.

This year’s tree is a 75 year old Norway spruce that towers 72 feet tall and weighs in at 12 tons. 

At around 8 p.m. on NBC, five miles of multi-colored lights wrapped around it will start shining, illuminating the star made of three million Swarovski crystals at the top. 

Artists like Diana Ross, Tony Bennett and John Legend are set to perform at the celebration. 

Rockefeller Center has displayed a tree every years since 1931.

The lighting ceremony has been broadcast since 1951.

Catch Christmas in Rockefeller Center at 7 p.m. on KSN.
