Can Elmo, Abby, and Stiller the Elf save Christmas? With the help of very special guests Sheryl Crow, Jamie Foxx, Anne Hathaway, Jennifer Hudson, Alicia Keys, Brad Paisley, Ty Pennington, Steve Schirripa, Tony Sirico, and Kevin James (as Santa Claus), Elmo and friends will learn to believe in Christmas miracles.
