Christmas Is Coming Early This Year For Ariana Grande Fans And The Grammy Nominees

This year's Grammy nominees will be announced December 5th during 'A Very Grammy Christmas Special.'

Arianators, a whole lot of joy is coming to your world. Ariana is heading up a Christmas special with some very important announcements and everyone is invited. On December 5th, Ariana Grande is teaming up with a handful of stars including Pharrell, Maroon 5, and Tim McGraw for a television holiday special.

It will be the first ever iteration of a televised concert series called "A Very Grammy Christmas Special" and the stars will each be performing a mix of their own hits, alongside Christmas classics.

After all, Christmas carols aren’t going to sing themselves, and although we’re most excited to hear what Ariana brings to the table, this well-rounded mix of country, rock and R&B singers sounds like the right crew to celebrate the season in all its polyphonic glory. Can Pharrell work out a "Happy" and "Joy To The World" medley? Christmas, as they say, has no genre, but if it did then it would be pure, golden happiness.

Kind of like the happiness I feel when Ariana Grande is performing her tremendous rendition of “Last Christmas." But if all that isn't enough, the show will also be used to announce this year’s Grammy Award Nominees. That’s a good excuse to crack open the marshmallows and hot cocoa early if I’ve ever heard one.
