But it is not just a jolly song, it also emphasises the strength of their vocals and their amazing harmonies as it is very hard to follow in the footsteps of other artists who have covered this song, such as Mariah Carey and Buble. Whilst being super talented, the girls never forget to have fun, with their entertaining moves and special guests making you smile.
