Watch: She & Him Perform ‘The Christmas Waltz’ on ‘Leno’
She & Him kick off the late-night Christmas season with a rendition of “The Christmas Waltz.”
Last night Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward, better known as She & Him, stopped by “The Tonight Show” to play “The Christmas Waltz” from their new record, “A Very She & Him Christmas.” In all honesty, the performance stuck out if only just that it was a reminder that “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” still exists as it seems to have become even less relevant than before Conan took it over temporarily. But I digress – She & Him’s sparse arrangement of the Carpenters classic is a delightful start to a season of Christmas music on late night TV – a period that’s worth sitting through if just to see Darlene Love perform “Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)” on Letterman.
“A Very She & Him Christmas” is currently out on Merge. Check out “The Christmas Waltz” below.
