Kelsea Ballerini lit up CMA Country Christmas with her flirty “Santa Baby” performance on Monday (Nov. 30) night.

“I picked ‘Santa Baby’ because I really wanted to do something kind of fun and light on the show this year, obviously it’s been a crazy year, very heavy, and so I kind of just wanted to swing that back over to the other side and be fun tonight,” the “Hole In The Bottle” singer said ahead of her performance.

During the show, the superstar also shared her favorite family Christmas tradition, which she says is “Jammy Day.” Jammy Day is where she and her family wear matching pajama’s all day no matter where they go, that were supplied by Ballerini’s mom.

The 11th annual holiday show was filmed this past September, without a live audience and is a production of the Country Music Association.

CMA Country Christmas also featured performances from Gabby Barrett, Dan + Shay, Florida Georgia Line, Lady A, Little Big Town, Tim McGraw, Thomas Rhett and Darius Rucker with Lindsey Stirling.

Hosted by one of country music’s most beloved couples, Thomas Rhett and Lauren Akins. The one-hour CMA Country Christmas special aired on Monday, November 30 at 9 p.m. EST on ABC.
