Michael Buble answers our Christmas Song Questionnaire: Your turn!

Michael Bublé is back with his third annual Christmas special (airing Wednesday at 10 p.m. ET on NBC), and this year’s guests are Mary J. Blige and Mariah Carey, whose bedazzled mic is truly something to behold. “I felt so unimportant,” Bublé jokes. “No, it was funny, we actually had a laugh about it, her and I. I like that the girls have bedazzled mics. I saw Katy Perry’s mic the other night behind the scenes at a show we were both doing together, it was glorious. They actually look like they have special powers. I expect to see it in, like, Lord of the Rings or something. Gandalf could use the s–t out of that thing.” In the hour, which also features a running gag with Cookie Monster, Bublé takes a few requests — and he insists he wasn’t just waiting to hear audience members say whatever he was planning to play next. “You just need to look at my musicians’ eyes and how big they are,” he says, “because half the songs that we sang, I don’t think they knew. We just faked it. It was really nice to have those spontaneous moments. It was something we did in about 20 minutes. I found a lot of inspiration in how much fun [the audience] had singing with me. Everybody was really in the spirit. There was even one of the ugliest Christmas sweaters I’ve ever seen, which was so much fun for me. It was so ugly, and I was so excited to get to talk about it.”

Below, we quiz Bublé with our Christmas Song Questionnaire. Read his responses, then give us yours. READ FULL STORY

Jimmy Fallon, Michael Buble, Keira Knightley, and Dave Matthews play musical instrument game -- VIDEO

Full time late-night talk show host, part time game show enthusiast Jimmy Fallon orchestrated yet another hilarious competition last night on Late Night.

Keira Knightley and Dave Matthews squared off against Fallon and Michael Bublé in an intense round of “The Musical Instrument Game.” The holiday themed song guessing game involved odd instruments, discordant sounds, and plenty of confusion on Matthews’ part. The singer forgot that Bublé was a musician.

“I feel like this exposes me in a professional way,” Matthews said. “Me too,” Bublé responded. “You’re not a … I mean … you are a musician,” Matthews then exclaimed. Nice save, Matthews, nice save. Maybe he was too flustered at the sight of the ethereal Knightley to think clearly.
