Christmas came early this week when Out of the Blue, everyone’s favourite all-male a capella group, released its annual festive season single, with the boys covering the classic 'Santa Baby'.
The Oxford-based university group, which was founded in 2000 and is composed of Oxford University and Oxford Brookes students, shot to fame in 2011 when its members reached the live semi-finals of Britain’s Got Talent.The group then went global when Shakira tweeted about the choir's mash up of her song Hips Don't Lie.

“Santa Baby is a playful holiday staple, ” said Deon Fang, the group’s president.
“After the success of Hips Don't Lie and All I Want For Christmas Is You, Santa Baby is perfect for us because we don't take ourselves too seriously."
Out of the Blue's 2014 cover of Mariah Carey's All I Want For Christmas raised more than £5, 500 for the organisation.
Will Northcott, a vocalist in the choir, said the group hope to raise even more for the charity this year.
"They are so appreciative of our efforts, " Northcott told HuffPost UK.
