Darlene Love, who’s been belting her holiday classic “Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)” for the past 28 years, returned to the Late Show stage for one last performance — and you’d better believe she went out with a bang.
A red ball gown, falling snow, a full band and choir… There’s no doubt about it, Ms. Love outdid herself this year. (Side note: CBS recently released this supercut of Love’s performances over the years, which is also a must-watch.)
“It’s been said that when this show closes, I’ll never sing this song again,” Love told Letterman before taking the stage. “That’s crazy! I said I would never sing it again on another show. … This is where it will end.”
