Some friends of American Idol have been tapped to participate in the Disney Christmas Day parade, airing on ABC. Idol host with the most Ryan Seacrest will join funnyman and Mariah Carey baby daddy Nick Cannon to emcee the festivities, while Season 9 Idol winner Lee DeWyze will perform with the likes of Disney star Selena Gomez and the all-singing, all-dancing cast of Glee.

We admit we love a parade, and this one sounds like a good one. We just hope that at some point Ryan Seacrest will get a day off to celebrate the season with Julianne Hough. Those chestnuts aren’t going to roast themselves, Ry-ry!
