We had the highest-seeded song to be eliminated to date with “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year” (#3) being knocked out by “Holly Jolly Christmas” (#14).  We also have by the lowest-seeded song remaining in the Seasonal Division, where “Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy” (#28) is going on a tear after just barely making it into the bracket in the first place.  We’ll see if it can hang on for another round.
