This Jennifer Hudson And Pentatonix Duet Will Give You Chills

The second annual “A Very Pentatonix Christmas” special is airing on Nov. 27, but NBC is already teasing the musical greatness that will soon be coming to your television screen. Based on the clip they released of Pentatonix and Jennifer Hudson singing “How Great Thou Art”—you’ll want to tune in!

The Pentatonix a cappella group won “The Sing Off” back in 2011, and they’ve been making incredible music using only their combined voices ever since. But when they do decide to team up with other artists, the results are amazing, and this video proves it.

To sing “How Great Thou Art,” they collaborated with none other than powerhouse vocalist Jennifer Hudson, and the performance is too good to describe with words. You have to hear it to believe it:

Their voices come together seamlessly, and when Hudson is singing on her own, it’s truly miraculous. She hits those high notes perfectly and, ultimately, delivers one killer performance. Naturally, people can’t stop talking about this duet online. One person called the collaboration “phenomenal” on Twitter:

Some can’t get over how truly gifted Hudson is:

The performance had others in tears:

If you weren’t expecting to become emotional upon hearing this song, you’ve been warned.

This is just one of many incredible performances that the NBC TV special has in store. Kermit the Frog, Jay Leno and even more celebrities are also scheduled to make appearances.

The show airs at 10/9 central on Nov. 27, so make sure you’re in front of the TV to catch these incredible musical renditions.

In case you’re dying to let the holiday music listening party begin—you’re in luck! You don’t have to wait until Nov. 27 to start listening to the Pentatonix’s take on Christmas classics. Here’s their version of “Away In A Manger” to get things started:

Follow that up with “Little Drummer Boy.”

There’s even more where that came from on their official YouTube channel.

Now you’re well on your way to getting in the Christmas spirit. Tune in on Nov. 27 for all of the Christmas joy you can handle!

4 Yummy Recipes To Use Up Your Leftover Halloween Candy

Having leftover Halloween candy can be a blessing and a curse. It’s nice to sneak a piece of chocolate or two every once in a while, but with the onslaught of Thanksgiving and Christmas baked goods right around the corner, it’s not always ideal to have that many sweet treats calling your name.

So, what to do with all of that candy? You could stick it all in the freezer, or you could whip up a few of these creative recipes and call it a day!

The video below includes step-by-step instructions for turning leftover Halloween candy into delicious new treats. The best part is that these four recipes are definitely crowd pleasers. So, make a few batches before your next get-together so you can get rid of a whole bunch of sweets at once.

1. Hard Candies

Got a ton of Jolly Ranchers left in the candy bucket? Melt them down three at a time to form rainbow lollipops. That should help you get rid of them quickly!

Halloween may be over, but fall is still in full effect. Melt those caramels to make an amazing caramel apple treat. You can even crush up chocolate candies to use as a topping! Now, you’ve got a delicious snack and much less candy on your hands.

Chocolate and fruit makes a great combo. So, melt down chocolate leftovers and dip some strawberries into them, why don’t you?
