How To Be The Holiday Queen According To Ellie Goulding

Ellie Goulding has the voice of an angel. Like an angel that belongs on the top of your Christmas tree, and sings you beautiful holiday music all the time. And lucky fans at the iHeartRadio Jingle Ball hosted by Z100 in New York City, were treated to her urethral pipes during her performance on the iconic Madison Square Garden stage.

The 29-year-old UK-born singer/songwriter performed three of her biggest hits during her iHeartRadio Jingle Ball set including "On My Mind," "Anything Could Happen," and "Love Me Like You Do" -- with a case of bronchitis, no less -- and still sounded as angelic as ever.

In fact, she wrote on Twitter that she "used the last bit of voice [she] had left" to sing, and it was "totally worth it."

Ellie did more than just show us how talented she is, she also showed us how to be an absolute holiday QUEEN, at the biggest holiday concert of the season.

Let's start with her outfit. Here she is, literally dressed as a Nutcracker. But a gorgeous female Nutcracker with the most amazing head of hair you've ever laid eyes on.

Voice of an actual angel: Check. ✔️

Here's how to jump with joy the right way on Christmas morning when you see that Santa came. 🎅🏻

She also taught everyone the proper way to do the running man out of pure joy when you find out Santa brought you exactly what you asked for.

Human helicopter spin move optional.

Finally, she made it snow. She's basically Queen Elsa. From Frozen.

If you missed out on all the action, consider this your holiday gift. You'll be able to relive the night on The CW during a special 90-minute broadcast on December 15th and 26th at 8 p.m. ET/PT -- so put on your Santa hats, grab some gingerbread cookies, and tune in!
