'Merry Nickmas' to Feature Victoria Justice, Big Time Rush, Rachel Crow and More Nickelodeon Stars (EXCLUSIVE)
'Tis the season to start listening to Christmas music!
"'Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree' is one of my favorite Christmas songs, so getting to record it for the album was a lot of fun," Victorious star Victoria Justice told Celebuzz. "I did my own little twist on it. There are some horns in there. I think it's a really fun version of it. I can't wait for the holidays!"
Justice also recorded an original Christmas song with the cast of Victorious. The track, "It's Not Christmas Without You," is also featured on the Merry Nickmas compilation.
"It makes you want to decorate your tree and eat gingerbread cookies," said Justice. "It really gets you into a festive spirit. I love Christmas music. Back home, we have all of these Christmas CDs in the car. It just makes me happy."
"I absolutely love Christmas! So when I was asked to record 'Santa Clause Is Comin' to Town' on the album, I was super excited," Crow told Celebuzz. "It was really fun, and I never thought I would get to do something cool like that."
Of course, the 14-year-old needed a little help getting into the holiday spirit.
"I went into the studio and it was 112 degrees outside, but my engineer cranked up the AC so I would get into the Christmas spirit," she laughed. "I was on my game that day and had so much light and happiness in my eyes and just let go. I have to say my favorite part was hearing the track for the first time!"
