Dancing With The Stars Co-Hosts Julianne Hough And Alfonso Ribeiro Perform “Santa Claus Is Coming To Town” During Season Finale

The latest season of Dancing with the Stars recently came to an end. Co-hosts Julianne Hough and Alfonso Ribeiro celebrated the finale with a special holiday-themed performance.

They united to sing and dance to the classic Christmas tune, “Santa Claus Is Comin’ to Town.”

In addition to being actors, television personalities, and former competitors on DWTS (Hough was a pro, Ribeiro was the star who won Season 19), both Ribeiro and Hough are singers. In fact, Hough is a two-time ACM Award-winning country artist.

Hough also released a holiday EP in 2008, which reached the #2 spot on the Hot Country Albums chart.


Special Guests Make Surprise Appearance During Julianne And Alfonso’s Holiday Performance On DWTS

It was thrilling enough to watch Hough and Ribeiro sing and dance to “Santa Claus Is Comin’ to Town.” But they added a special element to their performance by having some surprise guests join them onstage!

At one point, the two co-hosts went over to a pair of large “presents.” Ribeiro opened the first, revealing Witney Carson, the professional dancer who was his partner when he competed on DWTS!

Then, Hough opened her present, revealing racing star Hélio Castroneves. He competed with Hough on Season 5 of DWTS, and they won together!

Hough and Ribeiro were joined by two additional guests a little later in the performance. Season 28 and Season 24 champions Hannah Brown and Rashad Jennings hopped out of Santa’s sleigh to join everyone else in the dance.
