It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, otherwise known as the unofficial season of Mariah Carey and her everlasting holiday anthem, “All I Want for Christmas Is You.”
And now the superstar has a gift for everyone.
The sparkling trailer for her upcoming “Mariah Carey’s Magical Christmas Special,” which premieres on Apple TV+ Dec. 4, was released by the streaming service Friday.
“I’ve got a great story to tell ya,” narrator Tiffany Haddish says while opening a book. “‘Twas the night before Christmas and 2020 had been wrecked, so Santa decided that season couldn’t be merry, without the one and only Mariah Carey.”
The “Queen of Christmas” appears, reminding everyone that “we could all use a little magic” this holiday as the coronavirus pandemic rages on.
Let’s face it, if anyone can save Christmas 2020, it’s Carey.
Then the magic begins. The trailer shows viewers tiny glimpses of the holiday extravaganza that will feature musical performances, dashing dancing and festive animation.
And the more the merrier. Carey’s holiday special includes star-studded appearances from Billy Eichner, Ariana Grande, Jennifer Hudson, Snoop Dogg and Misty Copeland.
Fans are even calling Carey, Grande and Hudson the “new vocal trinity” following a sneak peek of the powerhouse singers teaming up on “Oh Santa!” in matching green dresses and choreography.
“no i’m not okay nor will i ever recover,” Grande tweeted about the epic collaboration.
Carey’s 9-year-old twins, son Moroccan and daughter Monroe, are also set to make an appearance. She shares the twins with ex, Nick Cannon.
