Backstreet’s Back at The Grove


LA’s The Grove has a reputation for glamour and celebrity, one the center carefully cultivates. As such, its tree lighting celebration could hardly be subtle, now could it?

To mark its 10th annual Hollywood Christmas Celebration, the center pulled out all the stops. It was a celebrity extravaganza enjoyed by over 20,000 spectators. Picture this—the Backstreet Boys, high off their reunion tour, Michael Bolton, Colbie Caillat and Far East Movement performing live on stage, each in turn, while MagicSnow’s signature fake snow fell around them.

The winter wonderland wasn’t complete at that, though. There were fireworks, musical productions, special effects and a lot more. The evening was hosted by Extra Tv’s Mario Lopez and taped for nationwide broadcast.

Of course, music and lights alone do not a Christmastime make, so it’s no surprise that the highlight of the evening was the lighting of the center’s 110 ft Christmas tree and the arrival of Santa. Let it snow, indeed.
