‘Tis the season to get your holiday playlists filled up! We love the classics like Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas Is You” and “Jingle Bell Rock,” but what we really want to hear is our favorite pop stars sing their renditions of Christmas songs! Below, we have compiled absolute must-have Christmas covers.

  • Miley Cyrus - Last Christmas

    Originally released by British pop duo Wham!, Miley Cyrus’s cover of “Last Christmas” made it completely her own.

  • Ne-Yo - The Christmas Song

    Ne-Yo’s cover of Nat King Cole’s 1961 “The Christmas Song” fills our hearts with warmth.

  • Kylie Minogue - Santa Baby

    The sexiest Santa song there is, “Santa Baby” sounds the sultriest covered by Kylie Minogue.

  • Gwen Stefani - Jingle Bells

    Gwen Stefani performed her version of “Jingle Bells” on the Ellen DeGeneres show in 2017, showing us an amazing interpretation of the 1889 original.

  • Miley Cyrus and Mark Ronson - Happy Xmas (War Is Over)

    Yeah, John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s song is cool, but Miley Cyrus and Mark Ronson’s cover is way cooler. And hey, it features John and Yoko’s son Sean.

  • Spice Girls - Christmas Wrapping

    Spice up your life with Spice Girls’ cover of 1981 new wave band The Waitresses.

  • Destiny's Child - Silent Night

    There have been many covers of “Silent Night,” but Destiny’s Child did it best, as the trio of ladies offer a different approach to the song that was originally made way back when in 1818.

  • Ariana Grande and Mac Miller - Baby It's Cold Outside

    “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” performed by Ariana Grande and Mac Miller as a duet, under his jazz-genre pseudonym Larry Lovestein.

    No one has ever topped (or will ever top) Whitney Houston’s version of Bing Crosby’s 1963 classic.

  • Phoebe Bridgers - Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas

    Have yourself a (hauntingly) merry little Christmas with Phoebe Bridgers cover of Judy Garland’s 1944 classic.

    John Legend put out his Christmas album, A Legendary Christmas, in 2018, and “Silver Bells” is by far the best.

  • Christina Aguilera - Christmas Time

    Christina Aguilera’s powerful voice is just the break we needed of the softer Christmas songs we’re used to. Her version adds just enough sugar and spice.

    A young Justin Bieber’s 2011 cover of “Santa Claus Is Coming To Town,” helping make his toys in this wholesome music video.
