The GRAMMYs rounded up some of their favorite artists to wish us all a happy holiday for their very first Christmas special, A Very GRAMMY Christmas. 

Ariana GrandePharrellMary J. BligeMaroon 5Sam Smith and Tim McGraw performed their hits and shared their favorite holiday and GRAMMY memories.

Grande kicked off A Very GRAMMY Christmas with her new holiday single, “Santa Tell Me.” Wearing all-white, Grande’s performance of her new single “Santa Tell Me” had her playing the role of head elf, making sure everything is going right in Santa’s workshop. But Grande may have been slacking since it seemed like those little helpers of Santa’s were doing more dancing than toy-making.

Later, she returned to the stage for her new single “Best Mistake” featuring her boyfriend Big Sean who was doing his best James Bond impression in a nice looking tux.

The two didn’t try to hide their love away, standing close, staring into each other’s eyes and eventually walking off the stage hand in hand.

Grande said that she gets “a little giggly” doing that song because it’s “such a serious song, and to see him act so seriously makes me laugh.”

And what does she want for Christmas? “Maybe some more sleep, that’s all she could ask for.”

According to Adam Levine, “Jews love Christmas.” And he should know, since he is one. His band channeled John Lennon for a soulful take on his classic “Happy Xmas (War Is Over)” and returned later to perform a medley of their 2004 hit, “This Love” and their latest single “Animals.”

Pharrell grabbed a few of his GIRLs and his hat for his performance of “Please Come Home For Christmas” getting a little flirty with the ladies for the classic carol. He came back later to show of his dance moves on “Lost Queen” off his latest album GIRL.

Mary J. Blige’s GRAMMY memory was bittersweet. In 2002 she lost the GRAMMY for her album, No More Drama, but instead of getting angry, she got even.
