Clarkson was wrapped up in a black-and-gold turtleneck gown while Eldredge stayed cozy in a red velvet suit jacket.

He had met Meghan Trainor prior to their "Baby, It's Cold Outside" duet from his 2016 holiday album Glow, which they recorded separately since they were both in the middle of touring at the time. "But I met you, and when I heard your voice, I was like, 'Ahhh.'"
