Seth MacFarlane and Sara Bareilles crooned together perfectly on Dec. 3 as they performed for the 82nd Annual Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree Lighting. It was an unexpected — but welcomed — surprise duet!
Seth MacFarlane, 41, and Sara Bareilles, 34, both great performers in their own right, brought the spirit of the season to the Big Apple when they performed ‘Baby, It’s Cold Outside’ during the annual NBC special ‘Christmas In Rockefeller Center.’ An odd couple, but a perfect performance straight from his new holiday album!

The mastermind behind Family Guy can also sing — and his talent is no laughing matter! Seth MacFarlane has been busy this holiday season, promoting his new album, Holiday for Swing. But for the annual NBC special ‘Christmas In Rockefeller Center,’ he was joined by Sara Bareilles for a cool rendition of the holiday duet, ‘Baby, It’s Cold Outside.’
And indeed it was! Performing live from the New York City landmark, the pair looked quite chilly while delighting the crowd with the jazzy tune. At one point, you could even see their breath!
But the cold was no match for their talent. Seth exuded a Sinatra like charm, while Sara serenaded him with her signature, sultry sound. They may have not had crazy chemistry while performing, but the song was on fire!
Mariah Carey Dissed After Shaky Tree Lighting Performance
But not everyone had an easy time performing at the annual event. Earlier in the evening, Mariah Carey kicked off the show with a performance of, ‘All I Want For Christmas’. Many took to Twitter following her performance to criticize Mariah for a less than stellar performance. People mocked everything from her voice to her dress, even though the superstar is celebrating the 20th anniversary of her holiday album. Harsh!
HollywoodLifers, what did you think of Seth and Sara’s performance? Did they kill it!? Fill us in!
