Christmas has come early this year for "American Idol" fans--specifically fans of "Idol's" reigning cutest couple, Haley Reinhart and her once-rumored sweetheart, Casey Abrams. Ever since the jazzy duo warbled their pleasingly chemistry-filled "Moanin'" duet on the Season 10 top eight results show (which, next to Adam Lambert and Allison Iraheta's "Slow Ride" from Season 8, stands as one of the best duets in "Idol" history), they've been major fan favorites. And on their new Christmas collabo, premiering here on Yahoo! Music, a remake of the beloved old standard "Baby, It's Cold Outside," they're recreating their old magic, holiday-style.
There's little doubt that Haley and Casey's seasonal single is an instant holiday classic. Their smooth voices go down as easy as hot-buttered rum here, and just seeing them together again in the video, goofing off as they drape each other in twinkling Christmas lights and stare at each other with big elfin eyes, totally fills me with comfort and joy.
Haley and Casey are seriously the most off-the-charts-adorable Christmas couple since Rudolph and Clarice. But these two should be enjoyed year-round. Come on, Jimmy Iovine, can they please record an entire album together?
