'American Idol' Jennifer Hudson and Michael Buble: 'Baby It's Cold Outside'

For the "I'll Be Home for Christmas" special Monday night,  "American Idol" finalist and Oscar winner returned to Chicago, where her mother, brother and nephew were murdered just over a year ago.

Regardless, Hudson kept it professional and delivered her songs beautifully. And even though her performances of "I'll Be Home for Christmas" or "O Holy Night" showed off her beautiful voice to advantage, we chose to share one of our particular favorites, the sassy duet "Baby It's Cold Outside" with Michael Buble.



It's such a fun, swinging tune with great harmonies and a sense of humor and slyness. The only disappointment was that neither Hudson nor Buble made the singing flirtatious, which is one of the main points.

"Baby" is a winter or holiday classic and won an Oscar for best original song for the 1949 film "Neptune's Daughter."

What do you think of the song?
