Christmas is coming a little early for Carrie Underwood: FOX is giving the American Idol fourth-season winner her own two-hour variety special.

The singer, 26, will host Brad Paisley, Dolly Parton and fellow Idol alum David Cook on her Dec. 7 show, tentatively titled Carrie Underwood: An All-Star Holiday Special, says the Hollywood Reporter.


After selling 10 million albums and winning four Grammys, Underwood, whose new album, Play On, is set for release Nov. 3, will sing on her TV special – hits, holiday classics and numbers from her new CD – as well as perform in comedy skits, says the trade paper.

And while the Underwood show is a one-time event, the Reporter notes that broadcast networks are looking to revive the variety format, as evidenced by CBS's John Mayer pilot in the works.
