Taraji P. Henson ushered in the holidays with her annual Fox special, “Taraji’s White Hot Holidays,” featuring some of the biggest names in music.
Teaming up for a throwback performance of “Sleigh Ride,” TLC’s Chilli and T-Boz brought their holiday classic to life. Then, as a special surprise, Missy Elliott emerged from behind Christmas presents to perform Left Eye’s spirited verse.
The track was pulled from A La Face Family Christmas, the 1993 album that famously also spawned OutKast’s classic “Player’s Ball.”
The show also featured other performances, including Snoop Dogg’s “U Name It,” which turned a Thanksgiving meme into a banger for Santa Snoop.
Rolling in on a Cadillac sleigh, Tha Doggfather delivers “the gift that keep on givin'” while giving a shoutout to Taraji.
Taye Diggs, Tyrese, and Ne-Yo also showed up in matching white suits for a revamped version of The Temptations’ take on “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.”
Keeping the “Empire” love rolling, Jussie Smollett also decked the halls with a stomp-filled performance of “Little Drummer Boy.”
