Because Mariah continues her reign as the Queen of Xmas Music Pop with the release of her new holiday album Merry Christmas II You, Disney simply HAD to get her involvement in this year’s parade … and boy, did she get the royal treatment. Mimi was driven by horse and carriage to the site of her second performance at Disney World yesterday …

She performed her mega-hit Xmas song All I Want for Christmas Is You in front of Cinderella’s castle. After the jump, check out photos from Mimi’s second performance at Disney World yesterday along with fan shot video of both performances …

Doesn’t she look glorious? Her baby bump is growing very nicely. Who knows, she may be carrying more than one baby in that belly ;) Here is video of Mariah’s performances yesterday:

Oh, Santa!

All I Want for Christmas Is You

I can’t wait to see these performances in their final forms when they air on Xmas Day! Mariah Carey is becoming as synonymous with Xmas as Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer is, don’t you think? Ho Ho Ho, y’all!

  • Jessica

    am I the only person who doesn’t find her attractive in the least?

  • Dana

    @ Jessica-No! I also hate the way she sings..Rihanna,Katy Perry and Taylor Swift also make by ears bleed.

  • Ashley

    @ Dana-Oh please how can you even put Mariah in the same category as Rihanna, Katy, and Taylor. All three of them can’t sing a note in tune to save their life. At least Mariah can really sing.
    So I take it you don’t like “All I want for christmas is you” then?

  • Mariah

    She’s glowing :)

  • nicole

    that last picture of her in the red dress is adorable!
    @Dana – how the hell can you even compare Mariah to any of those people?

  • Christy

    She is a wonderful singer and I have to say she really is glowing and I love her baby bump :D

  • Ama

    She gotten big fast! Which by the way is a good thing, means the baby is growing and healthy.

    I’ve never been a huge fan of her, nor have I disliked her. However I will say that she is an amazing singer and does have quite a good amount of songs. She is also a beautiful woman,pregnancy goes well with her! :)

  • Jerseyhater

    @ Jessica: Yes, you are the only person who doesn’t find her attractive in the least. Personally, I think she’s one of the most beautiful women on earth, and the best vocalist out there.

  • Debho

    @Jessica and Dana….AGREED! She is not the most attractive person and she really can’t sing. That squealing she does is NOT singing.
    @Ama…I don’t think she’s so big as that she’s put on weight all over.
    And again, another poor choice of outfit- the red one is atrocious. The black gown however is way more fitting.

  • Alicia

    There is nothing better than coming out of that “looking fat” phase and going into “looking pregnant”. Been there.

  • Sarah

    That red dress is just tacky! Also, no one actually sings anymore, they just scream and screech and they all sound terrible.

  • Rudy

    I love Disney and Mariah. So these are my two favorite things. lol I’m a huge Mariah fan and regardless of her wardrobe choices sometimes her voice is beautiful. I personally think people need to stop comparing her with singers of today when the woman has worked hard and been around for 20 years and is still working in the biz! ;)

  • Nicole

    I bet ten to one she is having a girl mark my words and it won’t be long now…

  • Amanda G

    Both of those outfits are just awful.

  • Isabelle

    Seriously, the people who say that this woman can’t sing should go to an ear doctor. There are some serious case of tone-deafness around here. This is a multiple octave voice she’s got. You know what an octave is ?

    In 5 seconds somebody’s gonna tell me that Rihanna can sing live. I can just feel it.

  • live singing Rihanna & Katy Perry to Mariah Carey, really people?

    MC definitely tops the best vocals of all time.

  • SuzieB

    @Nicole – I’m right there w/you – she’s def having a girl since she’s not just all baby – she’s gotten bigger everywhere!! Maybe it’s 2 girls?!?! ; )
    And y’all are insane to compare Mariah w/Taylor, Rhianna or Katy Perry – Mariah has a really amazing voice….

  • joey

    I have friends that have been digitally been removing bumps, lumps and all her excess junk for years. From stills to videos she is very much digitally altered.

  • lindsay

    whoever says mariah cant sing is DEAF! shes one of the (if not THE) greatest voices of all time! shes also the best selling female artist of all time with 18 # 1’s, second only to the beatles. not only that, but shes gotten awards for best selling artist of the decade, artist of the millenium and a lifetime achievement award! katy perry, rihanna and taylor swift shouldnt even be mentioned in the same sentence as mariah carey! mariah is an ICON, whether the haters like it or not! and she looks absolutely beautiful pregnant!

  • darkfreezz


  • WOW i can nt believe it she still pregant and singing her heart out u go girl!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • not to be mean or anything but she just looks fat to me

    • @klumsy — Gee, I wonder if it’s because she’s pregnant? So let me get this straight, you were trying to be nice by calling a pregnant woman fat?

  • Esha

    No Jessica, you arent alone. I dont find her attractive either.
