Michael Buble's Christmas special last year on NBC featured a star-studded lineup that ranged from Justin Bieber, to Ed Helms and Tracy Morgan, to Oscar the Grouch. But his Christmas special this year will boast a lineup of even bigger stars.
Michael's rep confirms to ABC News Radio that the singer will welcome Rod Stewart, Blake Shelton and Carly Rae Jepsen as his guests on the special, which airs on NBC December 10. And instead of Oscar, filling the Sesame Street role this year is Elmo.
The guest lineup isn't really any surprise, though. After all, Michael is mentoring Blake's team on The Voice this year, and he's guest starring on Rod Stewart's upcoming Christmas album. As for Carly Rae, she's a fellow Canadian artist.
When asked by ET Canada which of his guests was most into Christmas, Michael said, "The most excited about Christmas was Elmo. The one who had to buy the most Christmas gifts was Rod, 'cause he's got eight kids. The one who was most excited about drinking at Christmas is Blake and the person most excited about getting home for Christmas and off the road was Carly."
