The concert will be taped on November 19 and wil and air Monday, December 24 at 10PM ET/PT on PBS.

"I have a lot of wonderful memories from performing at Belmont," said the third-place finisher on this year's America Idol. "I was a part of Belmont Pops, University Chorus, Jazzmin, and Chadasha so I've been performing here for the longest time, even at the Commercial Music showcase. I'm really, really excited to be coming back for 'Christmas at Belmont,' to be given another chance to perform and also to host."

Over 400 students, the university's School of Music faculty and the Nashville Children's Choir are all scheduled to perform at the "Christmas at Belmont" concert, which will include everything from familiar carols to classical pieces.

"We are just incredibly pleased and excited to have Melinda hosting our 'Christmas at Belmont' this year," said Belmont's College of Visual and Performing Arts Dean Cynthia Curtis. "For those of us around Belmont who've known Melinda since she was a freshman, she has always been a complete pleasure to work with. What we saw as she participated in the American Idol process is really who she is: she's very humble and yet very talented as a musician and performer."
