The Rockefeller Center Christmas tree lighting will be decked with plenty of stars -- of the Hollywood variety.

Justin Bieber, Tony Bennett, Michael Buble, Cee Lo Green and Faith Hill are among the celebrities set to perform at the festive affair, to be broadcast live on NBC 8-9 p.m. Nov. 30. "Today" show mainstays Al Roker and Savannah Guthrie will host.

WNBC/Ch. 4 will broadcast additional programming from 7 to 8 p.m., which will include a performance by Megan Hilty, star of the upcoming NBC musical drama, "SMASH."

This year's 10-ton behemoth - a 74-feet tall Norway Spruce trucked in from Mifflinville, Penn. - is scheduled to be erected Friday and will remain on view until Jan. 7.
