In fact, the program started on 20th, September, with a breath taking performance of the four coaches: Grande, Clarkson and the other two coaches, John Legend and Blake Shelton. They performed a mash-up of Aretha Franklin’s Respect and Sam & Dave’s Hold On, I’m Coming.
Ariana and Kelly’s Christmas productions
Both Ariana and Kelly already released some Christmas records and singles in the past.
For Kelly Clarkson, this is not her first holiday collaboration. She released songs with famous artists such as her tv colleagues Blake Shelton and John Legend, The acappella band Pentatonix and Trisha Yearwood.
As for Ariana Grande, a Christmas collaboration is nothing new for her either. Not only has she recorded and released two holiday EPs, Christmas and Chill and Christmas Kisses, but in 2020 she worked with astonishing singers Mariah Carrey and Jennifer Hudson on Mariah’s song Oh Santa!
Kelly Clarkson often teases some of her songs on Instagram, and did so with this new song and record. “When Christmas Comes Around… captures how different the holidays can be for all of us during the varying stages of our lives, and I hope everyone can find something on the record they relate to. Hopefully the happier songs, but if not, hey… you’re not alone!”
Moreover, Ariana Grande thanked Kelly on her twitter account for inviting her to be a part of Santa Can’t You Hear Me.
The song is sure to be a hit. Will it also be part of the top 10 pop Christmas singles? let us know with a comment!
