The ABC special included performances by Katy Perry, BTS, Chloe X Halle, Leslie Odom Jr., Kerry Washington, Adam Lambert, Julianne Hough, Andrea Bocelli, Derek Hough and Hayley Erbert.
We probably should have expected a Disney show to be all about kids, but it was still a delicious surprise and treat when the real stars of “The Disney Holiday Singalong” turned out to be the junior version of our. favorite celebrities.
While the ABC special featured performances by Katy Perry, BTS, Chloe x Halle, Julianne Hough, Kerry Washington, Leslie Odom Jr., Andrew Bocelli and Adam Lambert, these are the on-screen moments that P! Nk, Ciara and Michael Bublé shared with their children who stole our hearts.
We should have expected this to happen, as we are still in mourning that Jimmy Fallon brought “The Tonight Show” back to his studio and denied us quality time with his two precocious daughters. Our nights have not been the same since.
At least we had the same reckless abandon and glee during Bublé’s performance, as his three youngsters (Elias, Noah and Vida) were seen dancing to his performance and ringing in holiday cheer before he got it. join for the last line of “It’s Beginning to Watch Lot Like Christmas.” “
Ciara’s two children, Future and Sienna, helped present and kick off their mother’s performance of “Rockin ‘Around the Christmas Tree” – and it was absolutely joyous mayhem! They later joined her for the video presentation, with Future even stepping in to help film her mom’s performance.
But the real hit for many fans had to be when P’s nine-year-old daughter! Nk, Willow, joined her mother for a stunning performance of “The Christmas Song”. This girl has vibrato, power, control – she definitely chose her mother’s natural gift for singing!
She also sported a similar short hairstyle, although Willow was even more cropped than her mother, while also bringing Cinderella to life. And as she sang, you could see the joy and pride on her mother’s face, sharing the stage and such a special moment with her daughter.
Other highlights of the show included the return of Derek Hough and his girlfriend Hayley Erbert to the network after a superb dance performance on “Dancing with the Stars” just a few months ago.
This time, they’ve teamed up to dance to a mix of Christmas classics, though we’re not sure why they didn’t perform as an accompaniment to Julianne Hough taking on “Whistle While You Work” (because it’s Disney, we assume) and ”Let It Snow. It could have been a family affair!
BTS brought Christmas cheer to their legions of fans by dancing the night away to ‘Santa is Coming to Town,’ while Katy Perry continued to show off what was to be a truly massive collection of full bodied costumes.
This time, she stepped out like a Christmas tree to perform “I’ll be home for Christmas” and “Cozy Little Christmas”. Elsewhere in the series, Disney on Broadway brought “Let It Go” to life, while Andrea Bocelli soared in “Silent Night”.
