The holidays are vastly approaching. For some odd reason, everyone skips Thanksgiving and immediately starts making arrangements for Christmas. That means the Christmas specials will begin shortly and FOX has already announced their headliners, hosts, and more. The only thing not finalized is the air date.
Check out the press release from Entertainment Weekly below…
“If you were worried about missing Cookie Lyon’s special charm and fur coats over the festive season when “Empire” takes its winter break, Taraji P. Henson has the best gift ever. The Golden Globe-winning star is set to return for Fox’s second annual music and variety special, “Taraji’s White Hot Holidays”.
The actress, who portrays Cookie on the Fox hit, will be joined for the one-hour special by her on-screen son Jussie Smollett (Jamal Lyon). Taye Diggs, Pharrell Williams, Missy Elliott, Alicia Keys, Darryl McDaniels (Run-DMC), Snoop Dogg, and TLC will all also be stopping by to spread some holiday cheer with performances of classic holiday songs.
This year’s variety show will also feature cameo appearances by actor and filmmaker Tyler Perry (“Boo! A Madea Halloween”) and “Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s” Terry Crews.”
They haven’t released an official air date but stay tuned, the holidays are sure to be jam packed with awesome entertainment !
