  1. Love them awesome job but what are they wearing! Both of them looked off there outfits just didn't do them justice I can see were they were going with it but just didn't work out for them two. But awesome song/signing!!!! 🙂

  2. I guess this is a good version for this decade and its movements. However, am I the only one that actually loves the original lyrics. They sound great but I would prefer the original lyrics.

  3. This song went from cute and flirty, to dry. The dude in the song sounds like he doesn't really care if she stays or not. Their voices are nice, though.

  4. The singing was great but i disliked it because they changed the lyrics to a classic song, if you don’t like the message you think it contains, don’t sing it, but don’t change it to fit your warped perception of what’s socially acceptable.

  5. Come on Mr. Legend! Use your platform more wisely. You voice impeccable but the clothing in which you present yourself is……

  6. No just no. The song is supposed to be flirty and provocative geesh. Let’s just change everything then!! Ugh.

  7. This is what PROFESSIONALS sound like, people!! Omg, we wonder if they’re in love but of course not!! They are professionals who make us feel like it might be real. Beautiful, you two!!

  8. Disappointed twice , although I love Kelly Clarkson I am beginning to doubt what kind of person she is , I know she's great in many many aspects, but when she flops the way the wind blows about classic songs and changing the lyrics , I am completely disgusted with her choice, and to top it off having Amy Poehler, a hateful person , which I had to fast forward wind through both segments of their shows.

  9. Jon Legend is cool as a mfer. Love his voice and music. But WTF is up with that outfit?! You look like the bad half of a present. Seriously… 😳

  10. Ooooooohoooook👋👋👋👋👋👋 they lied to you men did you not look in the mirror for real real,😯😮💥👋

  11. They sounded great but if your not gonna sing the song right that dean wrote for his freakin wife then sing a different song.

  12. Christmas 2020 John Legend ruins all your favorite Christmas songs…
    Deck the halls with boughs of holly fah Lala Lala Lala Lala
    ‘tis the season to be jolly fah Lala Lala Lala Lala
    Don we now our gender non binary LGBTQ apparel fah Lala Lala Lala Lala

  13. Gorgeous performance all-around; vocals, harmony, style, tune, musicians, stage setting, wardrobe. Best songwriters gone never to pass this way again. Great to hear great music real musicians. No award show, internet, studio altered, lip syncing, crap!

  14. Totally changing the lyrics ruined the song.that song has been special for decades…they ruined it.leave our beloved Christmas songs alone please

  15. The lyrics don't bother me, but I don't get John's wardrobe choice. What is that?🤦‍♀️🕺On second thought, if you have to change the lyrics to make the song acceptable to your public, maybe you just shouldn't do the song.

  16. Their voices are beautiful, no disputing it. But really? Changing the lyrics to fit the new hysteric agenda? Then why not change the lyrics of rap songs that perpetuate violence against women or dealing drugs? They ruined a classic, sounds stupid.

  17. Give me the old fashion way it's sung any day. Some things are better left too if it ain't broke don't try to fix it.

  18. That was just beautiful. I wish The seasons of The Voice that fall in the Holiday season has the contestants sing a Holiday song, like the top 10 Contestants, alone or with their Coach

  19. "It's your body and your choice"? WTF, when did abortion issues become part of Baby it's cold outside? What bad writing! Hard Pass.

  20. Simply great pure perfection both sound like crooners . John sounds like Dean Martin the similarities is there and Kelly sounds like Judy Garland. I'm amazed make an album.

  21. Hey, this really shouldn't be about the original words or the changed lyrics. How about applauding the performance for the amazing vocal quality, harmonies, and counterpoint? It's beautiful!

  22. I loved it, however I think its pretty pathetic that people took classical song and misinterpreted its original meaning to the point it had to be modified to be played at the holiday season again.

  23. The original song was a feminist song. But since we understand that time period so well, we have to rewrite it into a stupid sounding version

  24. They sounded amazing however the lyrics were so awful I couldn't finish listening to it. The only place the new lyrics would fit in would be Saturday night live.

  25. Hmmmmm…. Yet she sang the "original" version on her Christmas album "Wrapped in red" with Ronnie Dunn . Come on Kelly. Don't be a hypocrite!!!!!
