New York City will be rocking tonight at the Rockefeller Center. The Radio City Rockettes, Alicia Keys, Michael Buble, Shakira, Aretha Franklin, Barry Manilow, and host Jane Krakowski and Zachary Levi, will be on hand to help ring in the holiday season at the annual 2009 Rockefeller Center Tree Lighting Ceremony.

The Christmas tradition that began in 1933, is still delighting families many years later. The Rockefeller Center plaza heading towards the tree is occupied by the traditional horn-blowing angels. The Rockefeller Center tree is a ten ton 76 foot Norway Spruce, and is adorned with 30,000 energy efficiant lights. The tree comes from Easton, Connecticut, and has a rare double trunk. On top of the 2009 The Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree is the New Swarovski Star.
