Matt Lauer, Al Roker, Savannah Guthrie and Natalie Morales co-hosted the event, while the Goo Goo Dolls, Jewel, Leona Lewis, Lauren Alaina, Kelly Clarkson, Kenny 'Babyface' Edmonds, Ariana Grande, Ashanti, Audra McDonald and the Radio City Rockettes performed live.
But the biggest star of the celebration was the tree itself, a majestic Norway Spruce standing 76 feet high and adorned with 45,000 multi-colored energy efficient LED lights.
