A Charlie Brown Christmas once again crushed its opponent with a decisive 39-3 win over The Nutcracker, for by far the biggest margin of victory. Meanwhile, the Chipmunks album just squeaked past Tony Bennett by just one vote (16-15). Tony Bennett’s A Swingin’ Christmas was also the album with the most votes to still be eliminated, at 15. Los Lobos’ Llego Navidad was one again the least upvoted album to advance, beating Sufjan Stevens’ Songs for Christmas in a pretty close race (14-11).
