When it comes to Christmas music, it looks like two of the music industry’s biggest artists prefer the pop tunes to the religious ones.

“Favorite holiday song? ‘The Christmas Song,’” singer Ne-Yo told Celebuzz last Friday, before belting out a few lines from the Nat King Cole classic.

“I’m a holiday nut, I love ‘Sleigh Ride,’ I love ‘Baby, It’s Cold Outside,’ I love ‘Winter Wonderland,'"" soft rock crooner Jason Mraz said. "They’re all inclusive, except for those in the southern hemisphere where they’re not getting much snow, then I feel bad that I’m singing about snow."

“It’s hard to place your heart in the right place.”

The singers were just two of a slew of performers at the annual Z100 Jingle Ball show, which was held at New York City's Madison Square Garden.

For Mraz, the holidays are about turning everything off.

“I go off the grid. I go home. I’ve never played a New Year’s show or anything. I love to just go back to Virginia, put on a scarf, be with the family. It’s really great,” he told us.

As for his New Year’s resolution?

“Live the dream. it’s all about living the dream 2013,” the "I'm Yours" singer said.

 

On the other hand, Ne-Yo’s way of coming up with resolutions involves as little work as possible.

“Here’s the trick: you wait till the last hour or so of the year and then you make [your resolution]. So all the way up to that time, you can screw up as much as you want,” he said.
