We’re getting some information on a just a few of the singers who will be performing in this years Christmas day parade which begins taping now through this Sunday. So far we know that Maria Carey will be taping a performance on Friday, but we don’t know if it will be in the Magic Kingdom or in one of the resorts. We also heard today that Disney channel star Debbie Ryan, best known for her role on The Suite Life on Deck and The Search for Santa Paws, will be performing in the Magic Kingdom. Other performers include American Idol winner Lee Dwyze and ten-year old America’s Got Talent contestant Jackie Evancho. In past years, these performances have been on Friday, but with all the changes this year, we can’t guarantee anything. Remember too, that Sunday is a make-up day, so you may be able to catch some performances that day. So far the weather looks cool and beautiful with very little chance of rain.
Now for the fun gossip. We’ve been hearing rumors that Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift will perform, but there’s been no confirmation so far. The fact that both performers have breaks in their schedule at this time has only fueled the speculation. The Jonas Brothers have long been a fixture at parade tapings however, so the chances are good that they’ll be there.
We do have confirmation that Ryan Seacrest will be hosting in the Magic Kingdom, replacing long-time host Regis Philbin. As soon as we get anymore concrete news, we’ll put it out right away.
The parade will air on ABC on Christmas day at 9:00 a.m. (EST) and 3:00 p.m. (EST).
