See All of Gwen Stefani's Amazingly Festive Christmas Special Looks!
Gwen Stefani is officially the new queen of Christmas!

The 48-year-old singer wowed fans with her NBC special, You Make It Feel Like Christmas, on Tuesday night, but it wasn't just her festive tunes and cute interstitials that made the show worth tuning in to (not that we were upset about Blake Shelton holding up mistletoe or an appearance by "Young Gwen"). She absolutely slay-belled the fashion game with ten amazing performance outfits.

The No Doubt frontwoman kicked off the show as our perfect present, shimmying to the classic "Jingle Bells" in a candy cane-inspired silver-and-red sequined leotard topped with a red bow.

Paul Drinkwater/NBC

Not only did "When I Was a Little Girl" make us weep, Stefani's mom also cried when her daughter performed it at the taping of the Christmas special. For the nostalgia-ridden ditty, the mom of three opted for a silver short-sleeved high-low dress with a full tulle skirt.

Gwen Stefani Reveals Which Song About Love Made Her Mom Cry While Filming Christmas Special (Exclusive)
Recording a holiday album was always on Gwen Stefani's "bucket list," but she never thought she'd get her own Christmas special. 

Et's Nancy O'Dell sat down with the 48-year-old singer as she filmed Gwen Stefani's You Make It Feel Like Christmas for NBC, where she opened up about what a dream it was to tape -- and which performance made her mom, Patti Flynn, cry. 

"I wrote this song on the new album called 'When I Was a Little Girl.' I was fantasizing about how when I was little, I can remember laying in my bed at 8 or 9 rs old], dreaming about who I'm going to love when I grow up," Stefani said. "Who's that person going to be? I'm going to have babies...just all those fantasies... I remember that moment, praying to God, going, 'Who am I going to love?'"  

"It's interesting because you really don't realize what love can do and how dangerous

‘The Orville’ Season 1: What’s Improved, What Hasn’t, and What May Be The Show’s Fatal Flaw

‘The Orville’ Season 1: What’s Improved, What Hasn’t, and What May Be The Show’s Fatal Flaw
It’s been somewhat impossible to detangle any critical consideration of Fox’s “The Orville” from “Star Trek,” the franchise to which it’s hard to deny a connection. But even when evaluating “The Orville” on its own merits at the start of Season 1, the first three episodes screened by critics were hard-going, as Seth MacFarlane’s “space adventure” featured a wildly fluctuating tone, major pacing issues, and entire scenes that served only to deliver exposition.

It was enough to inspire a harsh review when the show premiered. But while the problems with those early episodes were numerous, some of them could be attributed to the sort of stumbles that occur at the beginning of any new series.

The 48-year-old singer will be hosting the holiday at her house, and opened up about the one tradition from her childhood that she's hoping to perfect for her kids this year.

I would call her crazy lady, she would probably like that, I think.”

The Orville Season 1 Finale Review – ‘Mad Idolatry’

Martin Carr reviews the season one finale of The Orville

Unlike most season finales The Orville asks you to work harder, pay attention and ask questions as it tackles some serious issues. Penned by show creator Seth MacFarlane, Mad Idolatry begins lightly enough by blindsiding you with comic character moments and romantic red herrings before seguing off elsewhere.

Using an intricate plot device to discuss evolutionary impact, religious doctrine and social constructs, ‘Mad Idolatry’ explores singular action and domino effects. MacFarlane examines ideas of misinformation, Chinese whispers and political fearmongering alongside belief systems in society. Interestingly this may sound like turgid and intellectually demanding, but comes across as entertaining, engaging and importantly character driven.

Moments of humour punctuate the more challenging scenes and tone is maintained without feeling preachy or resorting to cliché. Isaac gets perhaps his most important moment thus far, in a series which prefers understatement to condescension or spoon-feeding.
