Rufus Wainwright is a busy guy these days.  His opera Prima Donna will premiere in February and his new, Mark Ronson produced-album Out Of The Game will be released next Spring. But just like the rest of us, Wainwright knows you have to take time out of your day for some Holiday cheer.

He stopped by Late Night With Jimmy Fallon yesterday to perform the French carol "Minuit Chretien," which is roughly equivalent to "O Holy Night." Wainwright, backed by The Roots, got in to the spirit by wearing one of the fancier Christmas sweater's we've seen in a while. The video is below. He really belts it out at the end. Enjoy!
