The returning champions aren’t the only draw to the America’s Got Talent Holiday Spectacular. The judges, Simon, Heidi, Mel B and Howie, provide comedic banter in between special performances and they bring some cheerfulness to the show. The other judges didn’t want to join in and sing with Howie’s off-key tunes, and Mel B made a point to say she wouldn’t sing with him nor did she appreciate his choice in Christmas gifts. Simon and Heidi have strong chemistry on the show and get along very well. Where Mel B and Howie have a lot of play fighting going on, Simon and Heidi bring a friendly and cheerful vibe to the show.
Pentatonix is very popular right now and they have been nominated for a Grammy for their collaboration with Dolly Parton on the song “Jolene.” Pentatonix performed on the special to delight their millions of fans. Pentatonix covered NYSNC’s “Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays” and their acapella vocal stylings did not disappoint. You may see the video of Pentatonix performing the classic song on America’s Got Talent Holiday Spectacular in the player below.
One of the most noticeable performances of the night was crooner Sal Valentinetti who took us back in time with his Heidi Klum duet “Santa Baby.” Heidi Klum sang to a backdrop of skating Christmas trees and a band full of Gingerbread men. Though she was showcasing her vocal talent, there was one part during the act where Sal spun the gorgeous model and she toppled to the floor. Heidi Klum had so much grace and professionalism, she stood back up, continued singing and never missed a note. The way she carried off, you wouldn’t have known if the fall was part of the act or if it really happened. With or without the fall, Sal Valentinetti and Heidi Klum’s “Santa Baby” is undoubtedly one of the best performances in the America’s Got Talent Holiday Spectacular.
Jackie Evancho found fame on America’s Got Talent making it only fitting that she return for the holiday special. Jackie Evancho has recently been criticized and praised for her choice to perform at President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration. Evancho took to the stage and performed “Someday at Christmas.” You may see the video of Jackie Evancho’s performance on the America’s Got Talent Holiday Spectacular below.
The big moment of the night was when Season 11 Grace VanderWaal returned to the stage to perform “Frosty the Snowman.” At twelve-years-old, VanderWaal is something of a child prodigy teaching herself the ukulele and writing her own songs. Her fan base is huge, and like Jackie Evancho, many expect to watch Grace VanderWaal grow up and simultaneously into her career that had its start on America’s Got Talent.
