Britney Spears’ Lost Christmas Classic Remembered on ‘Colbert’

By Hayden Wright The canon of popular Christmas music is a hard playlist to crack: Apart from Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas Is You” and Wham!’s “Last Christmas,” most standards we love are oldies but goodies. That doesn’t stop artists from trying their luck: In 2000, Britney Spears recorded “My Only Wish (This Year)” and among her fans, its legacy endures. Related: Britney Spears Posts Elvis Presley Cover to Celebrate Her 36th Birthday One such fan is comedian John Early, who appeared on The Late Show and performed Britney’s holiday classic. The Search Party actor explained what makes “My Only Wish (This Year)” so special to him: “As a devout atheist, Christmas is huge for me, especially Christmas music. So I’m going to sing you my favorite Christmas song if that’s okay,” he said. “I’m gonna sing a song by Ms. Britney Jean Spears, who I coincidentally do a shocking impression of, born completely out of love, by the way.” Watch Early’s cover rendition below.

Spears shared her penchant for paint on Instagram last month, sharing a video revealing Spears adorning a canvas to the strains of Mozart. The artist donated the piece to a charity auction held Monday (Nov. 6) at Las Vegas’ Venetian Hotel raising money for VegasCares, an organization supporting victims of the Route 91 festival shooting. “I’m so proud to call Vegas my second home and I’m pleased to participate in this Vegas Cares show,” she told bidders via video message (via People). “The flowers in my painting represent a new beginning, and it’s in that spirit that we move forward. All the proceeds from the winning bid go to Vegas Cares Memorial Fund. I appreciate your kindness and your generosity—I love you Vegas.” When Spears’ piece hit the auction block, none less than Vegas legend Robin Leach of Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous fame, ponied up $10,000 to take it home. It was a bit of an inside job, as Leach was serving as the auctioneer for the item and clearly didn’t want the Spears original to get away.
