*For once, a story involving Lester Holt performing a song has nothing to do with Jimmy Fallon and his “Tonight Show” editors.

On Wednesday night, your “NBC Nightly News” anchor was at a Christmas Party hosted by a producer from his other NBC gig, “Dateline,” when he and fellow guests broke out in the Christmas carol “Joy to the World,” video of which has gone viral.

Just before the moment took place, Holt arrived at the party and heard that some “Dateline” staffers who had bragged about their singing skills were practicing a song in another room, according to Page Six. Asked if Holt would mind introducing them to the crowd, the anchor instead asked if he could join in.

In the video, he and the others are seen reading the lyrics from their phones.

A witness told Page Six the performance “gave all of us the chills to watch in person. And Lester sings a mean baritone.”
