America may not agree on most things, but when it comes to Mariah Carey's Christmas hit, "All I Want for Christmas Is You," we can all agree it's a classic jam. And if we're being totally honest, here, most of us listen to the song year-round. There is no expiration date.
James Corden, hero among men and women, featured the queen herself in a Christmas edition of his popular segment Carpool Karaoke.
"Thank you so much for helping me with my Christmas shopping," Corden tells Mariah at the beginning of the clip. "I cannot tell you, just to have a different perspective on what to get, you know?"
Carey, bless her soul, tells Corden he's welcome.
"What would you want for Christmas?" Corden asks Carey.
"I don't know, I don't want to ask for something that's too expensive," she says.
"Put it out there," Corden encourages.
"I want you to sing my song, 'All I Want for Christmas Is You,'" Carey admits, to the great joy of the world watching. With that, the duo dives in, and Carey nails the vocals.
And then, amazingly, the camera flashes to a number of big names singing the song, including Adele, Demi Lovato, Nick Jonas, Elton John, Lady Gaga, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Chris Martin, and Selena Gomez.
Nobody compares to the original artist, but it's refreshing to see how celebs are like us: Turns out, they're obsessed with "All I Want for Christmas Is You," too.
