How to Watch

In 2022, the ventriloquist and America's Got TalentSeason 2 winner used his Elvis Presley-inspired puppet (Maynard Tompkins) to sing an impressive version of the classic tune "Blue Christmas."

"All I want for Christmas from you is for you to sing an Elvis song," Fator told the puppet.

"Well, I was gonna get you an Apple Watch, but I'll get you this instead," the puppet responded before launching into the song. 

During the performance, Fator used a husky tone that was virtually  indistinguishable from Presley's. And as always, he managed to perfectly pull the whole thing off without moving his mouth. 

"That was great! Do I still get the Apple Watch?" Fator asked.

"Nope, buddy, you just blew your Christmas present!" the puppet quipped.

About "Blue Christmas" by Elvis Presley

Originally recorded by Doye O'Dell in 1948, the 1957 Elvis Presley version is what launched "Blue Christmas" into worldwide recognition. The lyrics to the country-blues tune tell the story of someone feeling lonely during the holiday season, and in 2011, Rolling Stone listed it as the seventh best Christmas song of all time. 

In 2022, Garden & Gun praised the song while discussing the bestselling 1957 EP Elvis' Christmas Album.

"Blue Christmas" has since been covered by Bruce Springsteen, The Beach Boys, Michael Buble, Lady A, and more.

"Blue Christmas" by Elvis Presley lyrics

I'll have a blue Christmas without you
I'll be so blue just thinking about you
Decorations of red on a green Christmas tree
Won't be the same, dear, if you're not here with me

And when those blue snowflakes start fallin'
That's when those blue memories start callin'
You'll be doin' all right with your Christmas of white
But I'll have a blue, blue, blue, blue Christmas

You'll be doin' all right with your Christmas of white
But I'll have a blue, blue, blue, blue Christmas
