John Travolta, Olivia Newton-John Reunite in New Video

Charley Gallay/WireImage(NEW YORK) -- It may not be the reunion Grease fans have been hoping for, but Danny’s John Travolta and Sandy’s Olivia Newton-John are back together in a new video for their Christmas album.

The pair show off their singing chops and moves in the video for “I Think You Might Like It,” penned by John Farrar, the writer of “You’re the One That I Want.”

Looking quite a bit older and moving a bit slower, Travolta, 58, and Newton-John, 64, seem to channel more Urban Cowboy than Grease as they dance Western style on a runway.

In the video, Travolta arrives for their reunion at the wheel of his own private jet, while Newton-John drives up in a classic convertible.

Look closely and you can spot Travolta‘s wife, Kelly Preston, 12-year-old daughter, Ella Bleu, and 2-year-old son, Benjamin.

Travolta and Newton-John recently appeared on Ellen DeGeneres’ show to promote their new holiday album, This Christmas. All proceeds from its sales will go to charity.

Lady Antebellum to Release Christmas Album Next Week 

Photo Courtesy - Capitol Records NashvilleLady Antebellum is offering fans something to hold them over until they put out their third album.  Billboard reports a six-song Christmas EP, A Merry Little Christmas, will be out Oct. 12 exclusively through Target stores.  The disc features one new song, "On This Winter's Night," and five holiday classics, including "Silver Bells."

Group member Dave Haywood tells Billboard that making the album was a bit surreal, since they recorded it in Nashville in July, when it was 100 degrees outside.  They got into the spirit, he says, by hanging festive decorations in the studio.  In creating the new holiday song "On This Winter's Night," Dave says, "It was definitely a new experience for us; we'd never written a Christmas song...it was a lot of fun trying to look at...how we spend the holidays and take that feeling and put it into a song."

The band is currently out on their first headlining tour, which wraps up Nov. 20.  They plan to take time off in December to be with family, and hope to start recording their next album in 2011.
