A Very GRAMMY Christmas adds two new faces to brighten the holiday extravaganza. LL Cool J will host the TV special, and Mary J. Blige has been added as a performer.

Blige is a smooth fit, as her new album The London Sessions will be out on the Tuesday preceding the show’s Dec. 5 airing. The R&B diva released a holiday album, A Mary Christmas, in 2013.
