Review: Christmas in Washington

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."
