Two members of the Rockettes stand next to the candy cane switch used to light the LED tree during the 2010 L.A. Live Holiday Tree Lighting.

L.A. Live's 54-foot LED tree may have stayed the same over the three years that the complex has held holiday festivities, but the show used to unveil it has evolved quite a bit since Britney Spears came on stage to engage in awkward banter with Adam Carola in 2008.

For 2010, the tree was unveiled via a tightly scripted one-hour special broadcast live on KTLA. Plain White T's, 10-year-old Willow Smith, Seal, Jessica Lowndes of 90210, 13-year-old Greyson Chance and Stevie Wonder each performed one song, while 2010 Olympic Gold Medalist Evan Lysacek took a turn around the complex's ice skating rink and Cirque Bezerk warmed up the night with a fire-breathing performance. A pair of Rockettes flipped the switch to light the tree.

The complex's holiday lights and ice rink will be up through the end of the year.
