The second annual ‘CMA Country Christmas’ special on ABC finished with all the evening’s performers returning to the stage to sing a snazzy rendition of ‘Jingle Bells.’ Host Jennifer Nettles wore yet another new outfit as she introduced what turned out to be an awards show-worthy lineup.

Brad Paisley, Keith Urban, Little Big Town and Faith Hill were just a few of the artists lined across the stage at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville. The swinging remake was worthy of the night’s big non-country guest artist. Brian Setzer appeared to sing two songs with Paisley earlier in the night and a number of lines during the show closer.

Scotty McCreery, Lauren Alaina, Darius Rucker and Martina McBride were also on the stage. Each had their own moment to shine earlier in the night as the telecast mixed up traditional tunes with spiced up recreations of more modern country Christmas hits.

Perhaps the only star who didn’t make it back to sing was Miss Piggy, but Nettles caught up with her afterward. During an “exclusive” interview, Piggy revealed that perfume and anything with her face on it was high on her list for Santa. She then went on to share a Christmas memory that involved being snowed in with Kermit the Frog.
