It's that time of year again! It's officially time for Live365's 2nd Annual North Pole Live Holiday Song Tournament!
Once again, we have compiled 64 holiday-themed songs for a battle to find the best holiday song! This year, we gathered the top 64 holiday songs on Billboard's Holiday 100 chart, and we're ready for a new and improved tournament.
In addition to voting, we will also be taking prediction brackets this year. Predictions open TODAY (Monday, Nov. 25) and close 2 hours before voting starts on Monday, Dec. 2 at 1pm ET.
