Welcome to Day Two of our 12 Days of Celebrities Celebrating amicable holiday smackdown! Though there's still a few weeks before Hannukah, Christmas, and New Year's Eve are over, the celebrities —  along with their pets, stalkers, and Instagram followers — want you to know that they're already making the most of the occasion.

But only one celebrity can be having the Most Fun Ever (today). Yesterday, that person was Everyone on Kelly Clarkson's Christmas Card List, but here are your runners up and winner for Thursday, December 10th:

Runner Up #2: This Terrified "Billy On the Street" Contestant

Billy On the Street is a show in which a seemingly deranged man yells at random New York City passersby, whose reactions generally range anywhere from profanity-laden to weirdly tranquil. But on tonight's Christmas episode, the first contestant whom Billy Eichner and Will Ferrell approached was downright terrified, in the best way possible. Should this gif not suffice, watch the whole clip here.


Onesies: 400

Onesies emblazoned with candy canes: 800

Reference to Bill Murray's Scrooged: 500

Episode of a Christmas-themed show that was very obviously filmed in summertime: 60

Final score: 1,700

Runner Up #1: The Audience at This Justin Bieber Concert

Despite however many times he claims he's sorry, Justin Bieber can't stop being Justin Bieber. Case in point: This concert in Toronto, during which he forgets the lyrics to his own Christmas song, and then proceeds to use the f-word in front of a massive crowd.


The original Justin Bieber song "Christmas Eve": 500

Possibly drunken cursing: 1,000

Ugly winter hat: 500

Final score: 2,000

Winner: Taraji P. Henson and Terrance Howard's Kim and Kanye Impressions

In the case of Lucious and Cookie Lyon, the impersonated have become the impersonators. During last night's White Hot Holidays special on Fox, Taraji P. Henson and Terrence Howard performed a sketch in which Kim Kardashian and Kanye West host a Christmas party. "Welcome to the best Christmas party since the Christmas party when baby Jesus was there!" says Terrence/Kanye. It only gets better from there.


Mad selfies: 100

Kanye comparing himself to Jesus: 500

Kanye confusing a Christmas decoration with Sia: 300

Saint West wrapped in fur: 2,000

Final score: 2,900

The Prize

In the tradition of the 12 Days of Christmas, Taraji P. Henson and Terrence Howard's Kim and Kanye Impressions will receive "Two of Kylie Jenner's sold-out Lip Kits in Candy K!"

Congratulations to all, and stay tuned for tomorrow's showdown!
