Mariah Carey and Jimmy Fallon Breathe New Life into a Christmas Classic
Posted by Videoson 12/05/2012 at 10:49 AM
Mariah Carey is the latest superstar to be welcomed into Jimmy Fallon’s late-night music room, bringing early holiday cheer via her legendary “All I Want for Christmas Is You” and a supporting cast of children’s instruments, helmed by Fallon and The Roots. Following Carly Rae Jepsen and Christina Aguilera‘s similar performances with toy drums and school supplies, Mimi and her flock of men reimagined the 1994 track with tiny xylophones. Fallon’s adorable Christmas sweater, the kazoo and Carey’s vocals all help to redeem the song you love to belt after one too many eggnogs following last year’s strange and displeasing Justing Bieber revamp. (We’re still scratching our heads on that one.)
But the best thing? The regal Mimi—sitting legs crossed, sans instrument—draped in red fabrics, waving her finger around like this is the original installment of Divas Live.
Can you believe the original came out almost 20 years ago?
