Deck the halls! Awkwafina, Derek Hough and Ben Schwartz are joining John Legend and Chrissy Teigen for their NBC holiday special, “A Legendary Christmas.”

Also rounding out the updated guest list are Neal Brennan, Yassir Lester, Sam Richardson and Tien Tran. Previously announced guests include Stevie Wonder, Kenan Thompson and Zach Galifianakis.

As TheWrap exclusively reported last month, “A Legendary Christmas” will include performances of songs from Legend’s new album — which was released on Oct. 26 — and appearances by the couple’s friends and family.

Legend and Teigen will also go surprise caroling with Darren Criss, Jane Lynch, Raphael Saadiq and Meghan Trainor. Saadiq serves as the musical director of the special and executive produces the special.

Other special appearances include “The Voice” coaches Kelly Clarkson, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton.

The special — produced by Universal Television, Done + Dusted and Friends at Work — marks the latest in a string of collaborations between Legend and NBC.

“A Legendary Christmas with John and Chrissy” will air Nov. 28 at 10/9c on NBC.
