One Direction Rock A Holiday Classic on 'The Tonight Show'

And to think, Mariah Carey singing "All I Want For Christmas Is You" with the Roots and Jimmy Fallon and a bunch of rosy-cheeked kids popping up like Whack-A-Mole creatures could've been the epitome of holiday cheer at The Tonight Show. NOPE.

For the latest instance of the classroom instrument covers, where the Tonight Show dudes cover a tune with a bunch of noisemakers they could've borrowed from an elementary school, One Direction joins Jimmy and the Roots crew to give "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town" a heartwarming spin.

Harry, Liam, Louis, Niall and Zayn all throw on their very best ugly sweaters and squeeze into the music room at Studio 6B to belt out the song's rousing chorus. Extra points to Zayn who turns triangle-playing into an art form in and of itself, and Harry's kazoo skills? Unparalleled.

Watch One Direction goof their way through "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town" above, and check out our list of the best holiday pop songs to keep the good tidings going!
