HubSpot employees have worked extremely hard this past year, but they also know how to kick back and have a little holiday fun.  This year's HubSpot Holiday Party, which took place on Tuesday, December 16 at the Marriott in Kendall Square, featured good food and drink, general holiday merriment and an impressive display of employee talent.

The talent show - we're calling it "HubSpot's Got Talent" - is rumored to have rivaled NBC's America's Got Talent with amazing vocal flair, unique percussion performance, original presentations and incredible feats of strength.  Okay - maybe there weren't any feats of strength, but the show sure was entertaining!

The show kicked off with a live, uncut, lyrical performance of the popular viral video, "You Oughta Know Inbound Marketing," sung by YouTube star, Rebecca Corliss and accompanied by HubSpot guest, David Fisher on guitar.  Rebecca and David also led the company in a festive sing-along of "Twitter Wonderland," originally performed at Boston's Social Media Breakfast 11.

"HubSpot's Got Talent" took a unique turn with Joy Nicholson and her impressive demonstration of Japanese drumming called taiko.  Joy is a member of Odaiko New England, a group that performs and teaches taiko throughout New England.  Check out part of her HubSpot performance of "Hachijo," which tells the story of an exiled Samurai:

The talent show concluded with a "Yuletime Romp through HubSpot Support," or HubSpot's version of the "Twelve Days of Christmas," led by Jim Teeters and featuring a professionally produced PowerPoint presentation highlighting all of the elements that make HubSpot "an awesome company."
