That Grape Juice editors may have praised the 48th annual American Music Awards (AMAs) for rendering its best showing in recent memory (via our annual roundtable review), but the ratings reveal Americans were none-too-impressed and opted to watch football instead.
Just six months after rocking TV ratings as part of an all-star ensemble on the second volume of Disney’s wildly popular ABC ‘Singalong’ special (click here to watch), Chloe x Halle are returning for the network’s holiday edition.
Putting their signature spin on ‘Do You Want to Build a Snowman’ from ‘Frozen,’ the sister act help fill out a roster that includes P!nk, BTS, Ciara, Katy Perry, and many more (as we reported here).
To build buzz for their forthcoming feature, a preview of their performance has been lifted to the net. Needless to say, it’s already sent their growing legion of fans into a frenzy.

As we reported here, Ska Pop Queen Gwen Stefani is looking to reign over your Christmas playlist with the repackaged edition of her 2017 holiday album, ‘You Make It Feel Like Christmas.’
Expanding the original effort’s tracklist to 19 tunes, a highlight among the recently released new set of songs is the Ryan Tedder-penned, ‘Here This Christmas’ (which has been getting major TV love as it was selected to serve as the theme song for the Hallmark Channel’s annual programming event, ‘Countdown to Christmas’).
“Darling, when it’s cold outside and I can see the snowflakes falling,” Gwen sings on the charming cut. “I’m staring at the Christmas lights and counting down to when you’re calling.”

Meghan Trainor was among the first Pop stars to help kick off this year’s holiday season with the October 30 release of her inaugural yuletide album, ‘A Very Trainor Christmas.’
The critically acclaimed, 18-song set not only shines with the GRAMMY winner’s takes on holiday classics like ‘Silent Night,’ ‘The Christmas Song,’ ‘Winter Wonderland,’ and more, but also sees her crank out a slew of Christmas-themed originals.
Among the latter class is ‘Holidays,’ a funky festive bop that features legendary R&B/Soul group Earth, Wind, & Future and even contains a light sample of their eternal classic, ‘Let’s Groove.’
“Even if you dance alone, you deserve a cheers,” Meghan croons over the horn-filled number. “‘Cause you been workin’ way too long, no more wishing.”
