Christmas caroling just got a lot more animated thanks to Jimmy Fallon.

The Tonight Show host recruited an all-star crew to help him perform an a cappella version of “Wonderful Christmastime” — which simply isn’t complete without its original singer, Paul McCartney himself. 

But the former Beatle is just the beginning of the song’s star power. Fallon also gathered up The Roots and the A-list cast of the upcoming movie Singincluding Hollywood heavyweights such as Scarlett Johansson, Reese Witherspoon, Seth MacFarlane, Tori Kelly and Matthew McConaughey  (who may not have the strongest voice in the bunch but definitely adds a touch of flair).

The holiday tune also features the celebrities’ animated characters from Sing getting in on the festive fun.

As the song begins, the stars join in one by one to lend their voice to the classic tune. Eventually, they all come together to make one perfect holiday harmony.

Fallon isn’t the first late night host to gather up a host of celebrity talent for a Christmas tune this season. Last week, James Corden debuted a holiday-themed Carpool Karaoke in which Mariah Carey belted out her classic “All I Want For Christmas Is You.” Adele, Elton John and Selena Gomez also got in the spirit by singing the lyrics of the irresistible song in never-before-seen clips from their previous car rides.

Also featured were Demi Lovato and Nick Jonas, Lady Gaga, Chris Martin, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Gwen Stefani.

Sing hits theaters Dec. 21.
