Mariah Carey has been barnstorming the United States for nearly a month on her festive Merry Christmas One and All tour and on Friday she gifted her fans — dubbed "The Lambs" — the "Festive Lambs Edition" for her modern holiday classic, “All I Want For Christmas Is You.”

“The best thing about being on tour is getting to celebrate the holidays with my lambily!! To show my appreciation, here is a new video for "All I Want For Christmas Is You" 🎄🎁 I'm calling this one the "Festive Lambs Edition"! ❤️☃️” she wrote on X

 

The clip opens with footage of the self-proclaimed Queen of Christmas, 54, getting touched up backstage before a quick cut of super-excited fans getting pumped for the show. 

The rest of the four-minute visual is essentially a super-cut featuring footage from the concerts intercut with rehearsal run-throughs, peeks at the action backstage, a glimpse of her and Nick Cannon’s 12-year-old twins, Moroccan and Monroe, and shots of fans singing and dancing along with all their hearts.

Several celebrities also make cameos in the new music video, including Miley Cyrus — who was spotted in festive reindeer ears — and Nicole Richie who was wearing a Santa hat. Mario Lopez is also featured, flashing a peace sign to the camera.

Carey kicked off the tour on November 15 at the Yaamava’ Casino in Highland, CA, and followed by stops at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, Denver, Kansas City, Toronto, Montreal, Detroit, Chicago, and Pittsburgh. 

She will perform in Boston, Philadelphia, and Baltimore before wrapping the 13-date reindeer run with a December 17 performance at Madison Square Garden in New York City. 

As has become her custom, Carey ushered in the Christmas festive on November 1. The “Fantasy” singer shared a video of her frozen in ice while ghouls wearing Halloween costumes operated hair dryers in an attempt to defrost her. 

It was Carey’s signature high-pitched whistle tone, however, that shattered the icy prison. Once free, she declared, “It’s time!”.
