Mariah Carey Releases New Video For ‘All I Want for Christmas is You’
All Mariah Carey wants for Christmas is complete domination by her Christmas hit, “All I Want for Christmas is You.” The self-proclaimed “Queen of Christmas” announced on Friday (December 8) that she is sharing her appreciation for her fans with a new music video of her holiday anthem. Calling her fans “the lambs,” Carey, 54, featured unseen footage in the video from her “Merry Christmas One and All!” tour. In the new video, which is titled “All I Want for Christmas Is You (Festive Lambs Edition),” Carey shies away from the diva spotlight and highlights her “lambily.” Her “lambs” are adorned with festive hats and sweaters. The music video also highlights Carey’s massive crew of bandmates, backup singers, dancers, and choreographers. Several scenes show them rehearsing routines and practicing their instruments backstage.

The “It’s a Wrap” singer shows off different festive looks throughout the video, including a nutcracker-inspired outfit made especially for the stage version of “All I Want for Christmas Is You.” Her 12-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe also make an appearance. Moroccan twirls a drumstick while Monroe dances backstage with a red guitar. Carey also had some star-studded cameos in the new music video, including Miley Cyrus, Nicole Richie, and Mario Lopez.
Carey’s sold-out “Merry Christmas One and All!” tour kicked off last month and will wrap up on December 17 at Madison Square Garden in New York City. On her final day, Carey is set to release a mini-documentary on her YouTube channel, which will provide an “exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the meticulous preparations and magical moments that define the tour,” per the release. Carey has released 12 different music videos for “All I Want For Christmas is You.” Her latest addition was two videos released in 2020: a celebrity edition and a “Make My Wish Come True” edition.
