Back in November, Guthrie and Kotb defended the 2020 Rockefeller Christmas tree when it became the recipient of harsh criticisms online for looking sparse in comparison to previous years.

The pair joked about understanding the pains of a "bad hair day" and indicated that the tree required some extensions to look good. The co-hosts also promised a spectacular sight once they light the Christmas tree.

In April, during an episode of "Today with Hoda & Jenna," Kotb's hilarious side was absent as she got emotional on-air while expressing her longing for her mother, who was spending the quarantine alone.

The 56-year-old stated that while it was hard for others to be alone during the quarantine, her mother remained positive and they connected as much as possible through FaceTime.
