What is The Christmas Caroler Challenge about?
Christmas brings with the spirit of festivities where tradition meets modernity and sacred meets secular. Amidst all the celebrations, one thing that evokes the strongest sense of nostalgia is Christmas carols. Each one of us remembers a few lines at least from songs like Silent Night, Joy to the World, White Christmas, and Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. Yes, the music of Christmas knows no comparison — even though these numbers sometimes define the birth of Christ and at times, don’t even relate to it. But still, they bring warmth to our hearts and welcome fond memories. Carols are universal and they have been sung for generations.
The CW’s ‘The Christmas Caroler Challenge’ is a reality singing competition show featureing 12 remarkable carol groups, each of them displaying their own, individualistic “stylized brand of performance”. The holiday special show joins the slate of Christmas-centric programming to celebrate the music that is so close to our hearts.
We meet teams “from the most elaborate ultra-traditional virtuoso performances to those with the most unexpected twists on the classic Christmas carol.” After each performance, the groups are judged by a panel of three celebrity judges. The one who makes it to the end is declared as the winning team, who takes home a surprise, grand prize.
