Sorta-Stiff Hugh Jackman Hosts Family-Focused Christmas in Washington
Chicago Daily Herald
Christmas in Washington (TNT, 8pm) - The feel-good event, which supports the Children's National Health
System, also featured [Pat] Monahan's vocal aerobics on "Merry Christmas Baby"
and a spirited "This Christmas" courtesy of [Janelle] Monae.
As usual, the grand
finale was a group performance featuring all of the artists, along with
the president, first lady, Malia and Sasha, who arrived onstage to dole
out hugs and join in a mass singalong to "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing."
President Obama spoke for a few minutes about the spirit of the season,
and threw in a joke about Jackman's movie alter ego, thanking him for
"leaving the Wolverine claws at home."
