Nightly Newsers Know How to Get Down

By A.J. Katz 

NBC Nightly News threw an epic holiday dance party for staffers and crew last week at 30 Rock.

The festivities kicked off with a lip sync battle between anchor Lester Holt, and correspondent and weekend anchor Kate Snow.

Both anchors performed two tunes each.


Snow kicked things off with No Roots by Alice Merton, and Holt performed Justin Timberlake‘s Can’t Stop the Feeling.

Snow and Holt went all out for round two. Snow performed MC Hammer’s Can’t Touch This, while rocking Hammer-style pants and a gold nameplate chairman that read BO$$.

Holt went with Jackson 5’s I Want You Back, rocking an afro and leather fringe.

TVNewser wasn’t told who won, but it was apparently quite a sight to behold.

Additional NBC Newsers hit the dance floor to more Michael Jackson tunes and Copa Cabana, including Al Roker, Cynthia McFadden and Dylan Dreyer. Other NBC talent in the crowd included Ann Thompson, Morgan Radford, Harry Smith, as well as local newsers Janice Huff and Lester’s son, WNBC anchor Stefan Holt.
