Watch And Love: Mariah Carey, Jimmy Fallon, And The Roots Sing ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’


Trent called it late last monthit’s time once again for us all to fall in love with Mimi‘s amazing Xmas single All I Want for Christmas Is You. Indeed, Trent. And it starts with this. Mimi tweeted to her fans, Join the fun + sing along to my festive “All I Want For Christmas Is You” collabo with @jimmyfallon & @theroots!!!  Mariah joined Jimmy and The Roots (who are playing the hell outta toy instruments, because they can and because they rule and because it’s Christmas) to sing her 1994 classic, and I’m assuming this will soon air on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon. Anyway, you will love this, I promise!  Everyone has on Christmas sweaters, except for the Diva herself (I’m gonna need her Xmas dress, BTW), and then there are little children who pop up in cute hats… do you have any idea how much I love little children who pop up in cute hats? Seriously. I got pregnant for one reason: so I can see little children in cute hats every winter. Enjoy the video y’all. Do I have to tell you that Mimi sounds amazing? Obviously. Mimi sounds amazing.

LOL, I’m just now watching the video Trent posted last year with members of the Royal Navy “singing” the jam. Awesome.

    Ahh, thanks for sharing!! This is so festive and makes me so happy! Mariah looks and sounds amazing, per usual.

    Jimmy and the Roots did something like this with Carly Rae Jepson for Call Me Maybe. With the toy instruments and stuff. It was pretty cute too, but this is much more fun since its festive!! :)

    We should all admire Mariah for her finger dancing as much as we admire Britney for her arm dancing.

    That said, this thing made me smile smile smile.
