Jennifer Hudson - take that!
Earlier this month, Access Hollywood reported that ABC is planning a one-hour Christmas special this December starring Hudson. Curiously, ABC has not offered any details yet.
Fox this morning said it is now planning a TWO-hour Christmas special featuring Carrie Underwood. Nigel Lythgoe and Adam Shankman will executive produce. Here’s the press release:
Multi-platinum recording artist and Grammy Award winner Carrie Underwood will headline CARRIE UNDERWOOD: AN ALL-STAR HOLIDAY SPECIAL (working title), a two-hour variety special airing Monday, Dec. 7 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. Underwood will perform new music from her upcoming album as well as previous hits and holiday classics. She will be joined on stage by special musical guests and chart-topping artists including Dolly Parton, Brad Paisley and David Cook. Additional guest stars and performers to be announced.
And Kat McPhee fans! Here’s her new video for “Had It All.” Sorry–I’m not vibing on this blonde hair at all. This song isn’t all that but it’s better than her first single, the name of which I’ve already forgotten. Do you think top 40 radio will give it a try?
And here’s Kris Allen’s new album cover from the Barnes & Noble Web site:
