Mariah Carey got a special surprise on Monday (Dec. 23) to commemorate the 25th anniversary of “All I Want For Christmas Is You” in the form of an epic lip synch video starring everyone from Ariana Grande and Katy Perry to Brandy, Jennifer Hudson and more.
“WOW! This is one of the best Christmas gifts I could ever have gotten,” Carey tweeted upon seeing the clip. “I am so thankful to all of my friends and favorite artists who participated in this video. You brought a huge smile to my face. THANK YOU!”
While Tyler Perry kicks off the song seated at a piano, the video also stars a parade of famous faces including Snoop Dogg, Jamie Foxx, Kim Kardashian, Kris Jenner, Andy Cohen, James Corden, Normani, Diplo, Missy Elliott, Chance The Rapper, Jordin Sparks, and many, many more. In addition to the plethora of celebs, the clip also features appearances from Carey’s twins Moroccan and Monroe (affectionately dubbed ‘Dem Babies’ by Mimi’s Lambily) as well as boyfriend Bryan Tanaka, who busts a move in a white formal look fit for a Christmas prince.
The video arrives on the day that “All I Want For Christmas Is You” continues its hot streak atop the Billboard Hot 100 for a second week in a row. (Last week, the holiday classic reached the summit for the first time since its release in 1994, after peaking last Christmas season at No. 3).
Check out the holly jolly lip synch extravaganza, as well as Carey’s reaction, below.
