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:
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!
