DBO - Oh, almost forgot. Winner will be decided by NBC executives as to which special will garner higher ratings.

ok RKC- PM me with your ideas. Taji, let's have you focus on some duet partners and possible songs to duet.

Sunsfan, go through the catalogue of songs Alicia sings and pick out a few non holiday songs (to shake it up).

I'll go through and check out her holiday songs already to see what we can mix together.

DBO- when is the due date?

DBO - TBD. I like to wait until I see that both project managers have acknowledged the task to set a date.

It's official. We are digging up Dick Clark's dead body to host our program.

Good luck.

RKC Submission:

Jimmy Fallon hosts the event with Amy Poehler as co-host

"Marry the Man Today" - Duet Partner is Rainn Wilson (Dwight Shrute) - 2:30
"No One - Christmas Remix" - 4 min
"If I ain't got you" - 3:30

"Christmas in Heaven" - Duet Partner is Chevy Chase (SNL alum) - 3:30
"Little Drummer Girl" - 4 min

"Christmas Waltz" (30 Rock) - duet partner is Alec Baldwin - 2:30
"Christmas Song" (30 Rock) - duet partner is Tina Fey and Tracy Morgan - 2:30


"O Holy Night" - 2:30
"We Three Kings" - 2:30 Duet with Ed Helms (The Office) singing/guitar
"Do you see what I see" - duet with Nick Offerman (Ron Swanson of Parks and Rec) - 3 min

"Baby It's Cold Outside" - Duet Partner is Jimmy Fallon 3:30
"Fairytale of New York" - Duet Partner is Andy Samberg 4:30
"Empire State of Mind" solo version - 4:30 All previous duet partners come back to be the backing chorus/vocals (link to solo version: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g4IiccUjGps )


This brings us close to the 42 minutes of allotted time. I have it broken up into 2 and 3 song sets with the final set being the one with arguably the most talented duets. We feel that this is the strongest program that can be put out by NBC for the holiday special, with appearances by stars from The Office, 30 Rock, Saturday Night Live, Community, and Parks and Recreation to keep the atmosphere light and comedic, ending with a bang in Empire State of Mind.


edit- I reserve the right to make changes before the deadline if my team notices any glaring issues.

"Empire State of Mind" ft. Jay-Z - 4:30 (substitute with Andy Samberg if Jay Z not allowed)

Default 9 Guys 1 Cup Submission...

Open with Alicia singing Silver Bells (3:00) While playing on the piano

Afterwards Jimmy Fallon will come out and say a few jokes with while Alicia is changing (1:30)

Then Alicia w/ Jimmy Fallon singing Peace on Earth/Little Drummer Boy (2:46) This is a classic in which Fallon could do his best David Bowie impersonation.

Alicia singing I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus (3:09) Alec Baldwin could be dressed as Santa and Amy Poehler could be Mommy and they could be in the background or off to the side acting out the parts of the song

Ken Joeng singing Christmas Style (4:00) This would be a parody of Gangnam Style, but with Christmas related lyrics.

Alicia with Ceelo Green singing The Christmas Song (3:16)

Blake Shelton singing Grandma Got Ran Over By a Reinder (3:25)

Alicia singing Hark! The Herald Angels Sing (3:00)

Ed Helms/Craig Robinson/Brian Baumgartner or Creed Bratton (He's a real musician) singing God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen/We Three Kings (3:30) Helms and Robinson can really sing, and Baumgartner's character on The Office is in a band, so it would make sense. Since Bratton is a musician, he could take Helms or Baumgartner's place.

Alicia singing Santa Baby (3:30)

All of the previous singers with Alicia singing Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree (extended version) maded just for this event. (4:00)


As for a closing to the show...

Alicia with Christina Aguilera singing Merry Christmas, Baby (5:45) This is an Aguilera song that includes a nice dose of piano, and the two of those gals together would make an epic duet.

Through out the show their will be some dances & jokes by local dance studios/schools to fill in the remaining 6 minutes.

Thanks to the mole, we ended up with some of the same ideas. Mole-io, thank you for not copying our idea for We Three Kings completely.

To quote one of my favorite lines from a film:

The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist.

Cameron's nephew, I would never do such a thing. I came up with my part 4 days ago The mole knows that to be true and used part of it to make your guys' show.

i didn't read a word of your message- just stared at Katy Perry winking at me for an uncomfortably long time.
