Taraji P Henson Will Host ‘White Hot Holidays’ for a Third Year


Taraji’s holiday special makes its way back for a third year.

‘White Hot Holidays’ is making its third appearance on Fox. The special consists of renditions of classic holiday tunes and features surprise guests. Performers include Chaka Khan, Ciara, Salt-N-Pepa, Fergie, Jussie Smollett, and many more. Besides the performances, there are also some skits that take place throughout the show.

The special is something Henson brought to Fox in 2015 before her current show, ‘Empire,’ became popular. The first year, Henson’s ‘Empire’ co-stars were a part of her holiday special, making it a Lyon family reunion. She also co-hosted with her TV husband Terrence Howard. The second year, the cast was very busy and Henson hosted her holiday event solo. Even though most of the Lyon family members will not be a part of this year’s special, ‘Empire’s’ Jussie Smollett is set to perform this year.

Henson currently stars on Fox’s ‘Empire,’ which is currently on its fourth season.

The hour-long event will debut on Dec. 14 at 9/8 p.m. ET/PT.
