WATCH: TV's Cutest Gay Couple Get You in the Holiday Spirit


The Real O' Neals gives Kenny his first boyfriend in the anything-but-clichéd — and possibly the funniest — Christmas pageant episode of any show ever.

If you haven't been watching ABC'sThe Real O'Neals, you're missing out. Out gay actor Noah Galvin plays the gay, and goody two-shoes, son Kenny O'Neal, and his mother is GenX star Martha Plimpton.

In the latest episode, tensions are running high after his mother, playing church choir director, decides to replace Kenny with a new soloist. His replacement is the hunky new kid at school,  Brent (played by Sean Grandillo). Kenny sets out to sabotage the new guy's success, until he learns the only reason Brent joined the choir was to meet him.

Later in the episode, the guys improvise a rap solo meets classic choral piece in the Christmas choir competition, making for one of the all-time best mash-ups of Oh Holy Night. (Sia's "The Greatest" made all the difference.)

C. Mollie Smith summed it up nicely on "Kenny and Brett sound great together, and their chemistry goes beyond music," she wrote. "The new choir member is Kenny’s potential love interest in the episode, so the Sia song choice feels all the more moving — its lyrics are empowering and celebrate individuality."
