Jimmy Fallon And Paul McCartney Get Some Star-Studded Help Singing A Christmas Classic

They're simply having a wonderful Christmastime.

The holiday season can be a stressful time for many of us, but there's nothing quite like Christmas songs to get us into the joyful spirit. We've loved this year's new takes on the classics from artists such as Pentatonix, Grace VanderWaal, and Demi Lovato. Now we can add a few more famous names to that list, as this week Jimmy Fallon welcomed the cast of the new movie Sing to perform an acapella version of "Wonderful Christmastime" with none other than the man who originated it — Paul McCartney.

The video uses a format we've seen a few times before on The Tonight Show, including last year when the cast of The Force Awakens performed a medley of Star Wars theme music. The singers' heads appear in constantly changing squares, kind of like The Brady Bunch. Things start off with Jimmy and The Roots, before stars like Reese Witherspoon, Matthew McConaughey, Scarlett Johansson, and more join in. At one point even their animated animal characters get in on the fun. McCartney makes his grand entrance a little later.

After watching this, we guarantee you'll be simply having a wonderful Christmastime, too.
