Mariah Carey and The Roots Perform “All I Want For Christmas Is You” On Fallon

Mariah Carey x Roots x Fallon Mariah Carey and The Roots Perform All I Want For Christmas Is You On Fallon

There are very few Christmas songs out there that can top the upbeat and joyful tone of Mariah Carey‘s “All I Want For Christmas Is You.” It’s become a staple of the holiday season, and frankly things just wouldn’t seem as merry or bright without it. Before the taping of last night’s show, Mariah alongside Jimmy Fallon and The Legendary Roots Crew, performed a playful version of the song using “some instruments you’d find in an elementary school classroom.” There’s even a children’s choir mixed in there for good measure. This is classic holiday fun and Carey sounds just as lovely as she did 18 years ago when the hit first released in 1994.

    His participation in “I Wish It Was Christmas Today” on SNL is all-time. He plays the keyboard and just laughs through the entire skit. Much like the Blue Oyster Cult parody. Lots of laughing there too.
