If you missed ABC’s CMA Country Christmas last night (watch it here), you missed some good TV, including Miss Piggy forcing Vince Gill to suggestively “du… et” with her on “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” (at 26:45), host Jennifer Nettles kicking off the show with a stellar rendition of “All I Want For Christmas is You” (with festively/scantily clad female backup dancers*), and Little Big Town rocking their smooth harmonies on “Santa Claus is Back in Town” (at 30:40).

I’ve always thought that was the sexiest holiday song (thank you, Elvis), but now, after seeing Keith Urban step out to play the guitar solo, I know it is. Little Big Town returned later in the show to dedicate “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” to the troops (1:12:25), and if you haven’t already bought that on iTunes, you will now.

* Also found in Kellie Pickler’s rendition of “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree” (1:09:20)
