After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

Here are the final confirmed vocal lines for the single:

Chris Martin:
It's Christmastime, there's no need to be afraid At Christmastime, we let in light and we banish shade

And in our world of plenty we can spread a smile of joy Throw your arms around the world at Christmastime

Robbie Williams:
But say a prayer, Pray for the other ones At Christmastime it's hard, but when you're having fun

There's a world outside your window And it's a world of dread and fear

Fran Healy:
Where the only water flowing

Fran Healy & Sugarbabes:
Is the bitter sting of tears

Fran Healy & Justin Hawkins:
And the Christmas bells that ring there are the clanging chimes of doom

Well tonight thank God it's them instead of you

And there won't be snow in Africa this Christmastime
The greatest gift they'll get this year is life

Spare a thought this yuletide for the deprived
If the table was turned would you survive

Underneath that burning sun

You ain't gotta feel guilt just selfless
Give a little help to the helpless

Do they know it's Christmastime at all?
