Carey promises a little girl Santa Claus is coming because she knows him personally.
Mariah Carey belted out the holiday classics during her Merriest Christmas special.
Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas Is You” was officially dethroned as the No. 1 Christmas song by The Shins’ cover of Paul McCartney’s Wonderful Christmastime, but she still remains the queen of Christmas.
On Saturday (Dec. 19), Carey invited fans to watch her hour-long special that aired on the Hallmark channel, where she sang holiday hits including “Jingle Bells,” “Joy To The World,” “Here Comes Santa Claus,” a duet with Babyface on “Christmas Time Is In The Air Again” and more.
Though her performance of “All I Want For Christmas Is You” was a real highlight, her telling a little girl she promises Santa Claus is coming because she knows him personally was priceless.
