TVLine Items: Jackman's Christmas Song, Live Lip Sync Battle and More

Hugh Jackman A Christmas Story Song

What’s almost as good as an official Red Ryder, carbine action, two-hundred shot range model air rifle? A Hugh Jackman song-and-dance break in Fox’s A Christmas Story Live.

The X-Men actor, who’s currently starring in the P.T. Barnum biopic The Greatest Showman, will perform “Come Alive” from the movie during a commercial break in Fox’s live musical, which airs Sunday at 8/7c.

Per our sister site Variety, he’ll be joined by Greatest Showman castmates Zac Efron (High School Musical), Zendaya (K.C. Undercover) and Keala Settle (The Big C), as well as 150 dancers. Benj Pasek and Justin Paul wrote the tune; they also penned Christmas Story‘s songs and score.

A Christmas Story will be broadcast from the Warner Bros. lot; the Greatest Showman number will take place on a nearby soundstage.
