Merry Christmas! Ring in the holiday (or just take a big ol' B'way YouTube spiral) with these 13 Broadway stars performing "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas", the classic song made famous by Judy Garland in the 1944 MGM movie-musical Meet Me in St. Louis.

Grab some hot chocolate, snuggle up, and scroll on for lots and lots of "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas".

Liza Minnelli

Baby’s at the Palace and singing one of mama’s most iconic songs, and it’s epic. Who sells a song like Liza? And how do you not tear up during this?!

Audra McDonald

The warmth in her voice here feels like Christmas should. It’s perfection from top to bottom.

Ben Fankhauser

He HAD me with that “make the yuletide gay” at 1:02. I’m slayed by all this vocal flair from Mr. Fankhauser.

Sierra Boggess

I stan Sierra and her voice so hard. My 2018 Christmas wish is a big hit musical where she sings her face off and shows how funny she is onstage. Queen.

Leslie Odom, Jr.

Just beautiful, especially loved from 2:50-3:20.

Annie Golden

If this were a recording, I would play it Christmas morning. My goodness, does she bring something special to this. It’s so genuine.

Matt Doyle

This golden-voiced treasure performs it in his annual Christmas show, and it’s everything. It feels so conversational in nature and reassuring—everything the song should be.

Alfie Boe

So rich, so many layers. MMM!

The Broadway Princess Party (Laura Osnes, Susan Egan, & Courtney Reed

That is a beautiful harmony. Props to Benjamin Rauhala.

Ariana Grande

The pop princess does it again. I was finger-waving and praise-handing left and right.

Samantha Barks

The star of Broadway’s Pretty Woman puts her spin on the classic and gives it a very fresh and sweet feeling.

Katharine McPhee

The once and future Waitress star offers a beautiful, jazzy rendition with lots of little nuggets of joy.

Christine Ebersole

The two-time Tony Award winner delivers everything you want from her in this moment. I gasped for that “hang a shining star upon the highest bow” beginning at 1:47.
