Mariah Carey's 'All I Want for Christmas Is You' Makes Its Award Show Debut
The self-proclaimed "Queen of Christmas" spread holiday cheer at the 2023 Billboard Music Awards.
Mariah Carey has finally debuted the classic Christmas song "All I Want for Christmas Is You" on an awards show, just shy of 30 years after its release.
The self-proclaimed "Queen of Christmas" treated fans all over the world to a special rendition of the chart-topping hit, with Grey's Anatomy regular and Emmy-winning choreographer Debbie Allen in charge of the performance's creative direction.
Carey is currently on tour with her "Merry Christmas One and All!" holiday tour, so it's not surprising that she chose a winter-themed performance.
Carey appeared in the new video, which debuted on Billboard's social media accounts on the evening of November 19, dressed in a white minidress and matching knee-high boots.
She then sang the holiday hit in front of a small group of her fans, who were also dressed in red and white.
Dancers skated around the stage, which was designed to look like an outdoor ice rink, to add to the wintry atmosphere.
Prior to the evening, Carey, 54, was also set to receive the Billboard Chart Achievement Award for the incredible success of "All I Want for Christmas Is You."
According to the publication, the song has been at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 every year since 2019—the first year it reached the top.
