The Most Awesome Rendition of 'All I Want for Christmas Is You' You'll Ever Hear. Period.

Here's some holiday spirit that even the grinchiest of grinches might not be able to resist: Mariah Carey, in all her glory, sat down with Jimmy Fallon and the Roots to perform "All I Want for Christmas Is You" — with toy instruments. It's fun, it's wonderful, it's HOLIDAY MAGIC, more emotionally satisfying than a Santa Bear watching It's a Wonderful Life whilst sipping a mug of homemade hot chocolate and holding a little baby as a Christmas puppy frolics at their feet and roasts chestnuts. Good stuff.


We'd also like to offer our condolences to young "Joanna," whose performance in Love Actually has held the Best-Ever spot since 2003 — but now Mariah's home and playtime is over.

Ok, that was amazing.

You know what I really enjoyed too though? That Mariah Carey singing just sitting there sounds pretty much exactly like Mariah Carey singing on a recording. It's kind of refreshing.
