Dan + Shay gave a jolly performance of their new holiday track “Take Me Home For Christmas” during The Voice Season 19 finale on Tuesday (Dec. 15).
“This is our first original Christmas song, and we had a blast writing and recording it,” Dan Smyers previously shared of the song. “It was cool to get in the holiday spirit a little early this year, because I think we could all use some extra positivity and cheer. Our fans have asked for Christmas music every year, so I hope you all have as much fun listening to it as we did making it.”
The award-winning duo brought the song to life while sporting holiday attire as fake snow came down around them. Their festive performance closed with a fireworks display as dancers made their way around the Christmas-themed set.
Dan Smyers co-wrote “Take Me Home For Christmas” alongside Andy Albert, Jordan Reynolds, Jordan Schmidt and Mitchell Tenpenny.
The Voice finale also featured performances from Jason Derulo (“Take You Dancing” & “Savage Love”), Lauren Daigle (“You Say”) and Lewis Capaldi (“Before You Go”).
Additionally, the two-hour show included star-studded collaborations from Keith Urban feat. P!nk (“One Too Many”), Nelly feat. Florida Georgia Line (“Lil Bit”), JP Saxe with Julia Michaels (“If The World Was Ending”), 24KGoldn and Iann Dior (“Mood”).
Hosted by Carson Daly, the Season 19 finale of The Voice aired on Tuesday, December 15 (9-11 p.m. ET/PT) on NBC.
