Tori Kelly, 23, blew us away with her performance at the Christmas in Rockefeller Center special, as her choice of song was totally on point. Who didn’t want to hear the singer cover “Santa Claus Is Coming To Town”? We certainly couldn’t have been more psyched to see her croon the holiday favorite! And she had us even MORE in the holiday spirit later in the show, when she returned for a second equally-as-epic performance of “O Holy Night”‘ SO GOOD!

Tori looked absolutely beautiful as she opened the show with the holiday classic, donning a long red ensemble and black coat to keep her super cozy during the show! Tori’s gorgeous blonde locks shined in the holiday lights as she belted out the lyrics to the hit. “He’s making a list/And checking it twice/Gonna find out who’s naughty and nice.” We hear ya Tori! Thanks for reminding us we all need to be good this season!
Tori was not the only one to perform in front of the HUGE Norway Spruce in the famed Rockefeller Center, which was lit that night by Saturday Night Live’s Alec Baldwin and Kate McKinnon. Singers like Josh Groban and Tony Bennett also joined in with their own holiday tunes for the special full of Christmas fun! The yearly holiday event was hosted by the Today show’s Matt Lauer, Savannah Guthrie, Al Roker and Hoda Kotb, and was the most amazing way to start the holiday season off right!
