All we want for Christmas are these 10 covers on repeat
The holiday season is here, and whether you're decorating the tree or taking a bite of that sugar cookie, these jolly jams will have you feeling *festive* ASAP. What's great about a Christmas cover is it mixes the old with the new...perfect for when you're looking to reminisce about past Christmases yet still make new memories!
"Last Christmas" - Carly Rae Jepsen
This is *high-key* one of our fave holiday classics, and Carly turned it into a dance bop. Could we ask for anything more?
"Let It Snow" - Dove Cameron
We are throwing it back to Dove's "Liv and Maddie" days—so classic. This cover of "Let It Snow" may just be a highlight of the whole show with its pop feel and Dove's crazy vocals!
"Little Drummer Boy" - Pentatonix
The only thing we love more than a good holiday song (OK, one of the things) is some perf a cappella. Pentatonix DELIVERS.
"Winter Wonderland" - Selena Gomez
This cover is from way back in the Selena Gomez and the Scene days, but its powerhouse legacy lives on. Plus, check out Sel's killer stage presence in this performance!
"Silent Night" - Demi Lovato
"Silent Night" is probably the most mellow on the list, but Demi's flawless vocals do the original justice and still leave us feeling as festive as the rest.
"Santa Baby" - Taylor Swift
Taylor is back to her country roots with this croony cover, and her adorbs twangy pop brings this song back to life.
"Baby It’s Cold Outside" - Kelly Clarkson and John Legend
The original is controversial, but John and Kelly bring it back...minus the creepy lyrics. We heart awareness and this duo's smooth harmony!
"All I Want for Christmas is You" - Justin Bieber and Mariah Carey
OK, so this is only *kind of* a cover, but we'll count it! The super-festive version of this iconic bop has us dancing and ready to open a gift or two—and who doesn't love a Justin hit?
"Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" - Sabrina Carpenter
We could listen to Sabrina's original music for days, but it's time to turn the dial to this holiday hit. It is a slow jam, without a doubt, but this rendition is the perf soundtrack for any holiday eve.
"Jingle Bell Rock" - Laura Marano
RIP to the Disney Playlist Sessions! Laura's acoustic version of a holiday rock classic, complete with sassy rifts, is just one example of their greatness.
