It was an a cappella Christmas on NBC as Pentatonix performed everyone’s favorite Christmas classics. The group from Arlington, Texas, just released a Christmas album aptly titled A Pentatonix Christmas, so it makes sense it would have a TV special called A Pentatonix Christmas Special. The majority of the special was Pentatonix in a theater, beautifully singing Christmas classics to a live audience.
“Hi, Lord, it’s Dolly — I’m back!” Make that “I’m baaack!!” Not because the little-girl-Dolly-Parton played by Alyvia Alyn Lind is issuing a threat at the start of Dolly Parton’s Christmas of Many Colors, airing Wednesday on NBC. It’s just that the kid is so darn enthusiastic, insistent, and triumphant even before she achieves any triumphs, other than continuing to wear her coat of many colors without getting beaten up by the neighborhood kids. Lind plays a 9-year-old Parton who’s living in backwoods Tennessee in the 1950s as a sort of alternate-timeline Hamilton understudy: She’s forever talking, singing, and speaking in a singsong rhythm about her dreams of stardom and/or world conquest.

Dolly Parton is as well known for her over-the-top physical trappings – the hair, the outfits, the hourglass figure – as her sweet voice and exceedingly successful career in entertainment. And her fans can attest, everything about her has held up admirably with age. The icon turns 70 years old Tuesday (Jan. 19) and is still going strong; whether she’s touring behind a new album (her latest was 2014’s Blue Smoke), performing at the UK Glastonbury Festival, or popping up on film/TV. Parton’s overall appearance remains immediately recognizable – in fact, is an amazing testament to 50 years of consistent branding – but as this retrospective spotlighting her various looks over the years shows, the superstar has a unique ability to take on trends of the various decades and make them her own.
Dolly Parton introduces Dolly Parton’s Coat of Many Colors seated in a Christmas sleigh parked in front of a gigantic Dollywood sign. The plug for her Tennessee amusement park is justified by the fact that the commercial venture is located in the same rustic environment in which Dolly grew up, and that’s the site of this TV-movie set in 1955. The sleigh is there because Dolly clearly wants Coat of Many Colors to become a holiday tradition, even though the plot has nothing specifically to do with Christmas.
Dolly Parton is gearing up to celebrate her 50th wedding anniversary in May by getting married all over again to hubby Carl Dean. “We’re going to get in our RV and go on a honeymoon,” she told Insider correspondent Keltie Knight at the premiere of her TV movie, Coat of Many Colors. In honor of their wedding day, Dolly says there’s a good chance they’ll probably return to the Peach State and “maybe spend the night or something like that.” While they have always been very supportive of each other, Carl decided early on to remain in the background and let his celebrity wife take the spotlight.
