See the Brian Setzer Christmas Show Live (and Free!)

Here’s a very merry Christmas Eve treat: is hosting a live Christmas Eve streaming of the Brian Setzer Orchestra‘s Christmas Rocks Extravaganza tour performance from Knoxville, Tennessee.

Just surf over to Billboard Live at 10PM ET tonight, and you’re in, as the Stray Cats guitarist and singer puts a rock ‘n’ roll spin on great tunes like “Jingle Bells,” “Winter Wonderland,” “Man With the Bag” and “Dig That Crazy Santa Claus.”

Enjoy the show, have a wonderful holiday with your loved ones and we’ll see you back here at next week.

WIN THIS: It’s a Very Christmas 25-Day Giveaway, Day 20: Brian Setzer’s ‘Ultimate Christmas Collection’ & iTunes Gift Card

HOORAY! We have our winners:

Betty Rood and Debbie Lynne! Congrats, Betty and Debbie, and thanks for entering. Your awesome CD and iTunes gift card packages  will be on their way to your mailboxes shortly. Enjoy, and thanks again for checking us out at TV!

And everyone, keep entering in our Christmas giveaway section … we’ve got several more TV goodies to give away!

Hailed as “the new king of ‘Jingle Bell Rock'” by Billboard, Brian Setzer does indeed perform what may be the best-ever version of that classic holiday tune. Wanna hear for yourself? Then enter to win one of‘s two copies of the Brian Setzer Orchestra‘s The Ultimate Christmas Collection, a fantastic CD/DVD combo that includes 20 of BSO’s best holiday tunes, from swinging versions of “The Man With the Bag” and “Santa Claus Is Coming to Town” to killer covers of the aforementioned “Jingle Bell Rock” and “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch.”

Setzer, the Stray Cats rockabilly rocker, has been touring the country each year since 2002 with his Christmas Rocks! Extravaganza Tour, and one stop along the way was filmed as a PBS concert special. The concert has since become a classic (it’s aired more than 200 times on PBS stations since it debuted) and a DVD of the BSO evening is included with the “Ultimate Christmas Collection” set. Pop it into the DVD player (with the volume way up loud – sorry, neighbors), and it’s almost like being front and center at a BSO show. PS – If you want to actually see the Annual Christmas Rocks! show live, Setzer and his 35-piece entourage (plus lots of festive holiday decor and props) are touring the U.S. through the end of the year.

And now, to enter for a chance to win this awesome CD/DVD and $10 iTunes gift card (because you’ll probably want to buy more rockin’ holiday music and more Setzer tunes after delving into this collection), remember:
