Gwen Stefani Performs Wham!’s “Last Christmas” On ‘The Tonight Show’
Gwen Stefani dropped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to belt out Wham!’s “Last Christmas.” Looking every inch a Christmas angel in a diaphanous pink gown, the No Doubt diva delivered a heartfelt, twangy rendition of the yuletide classic. After a slow start, the 48-year-old’s festive project is really gaining momentum. The album arrived very early (no one is looking for a seasonal bop in October) and debuted outside the top 50 on the Billboard 200. Since then, however, You Make It Feel Like Christmas has come alive.
The album topped iTunes in the wake of Gwen’s top-rated NBC Christmas special, propelling the festive opus to a new peak of number 16. The title track has also proved to be a steady seller and one of the few original Xmas bops to make an impression in recent years. It looks like the “Hollaback Girl” hitmaker’s transition from pop pioneer to holiday stalwart is complete. Watch her do her thing above and below.
