We didn’t think Mariah’s ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’ could ever get better. We were wrong. The Christmas classic got an injection of new life on Dec. 18 when Mariah performed it with Michael on his Christmas special. Read on to watch the duet!
Michael Buble‘s Christmas special, aptly-titled Michael Buble’s Christmas Special, was full of holiday fun and joy — but there was one clear highlight. It came when Mariah Carey joined Michael on stage to perform her genius Christmas classic, “All I Want For Christmas Is You.”
Mariah Carey & Michael Buble Sing ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’
Since Michael released his own version of the song in 2011, we were anticipating a Christmas duet to end all Christmas duets on Dec. 18, and sure enough, our expectations were met. “It would be a huge honor if you would sing it with me,” Michael said to Mariah, who was decked out for the occasion in a sexy, cleavage-baring red dress.
Thankfully, Mariah obliged.
The two talented singers traded off lines, and the duet was a surprisingly good mix — Mariah’s lilting high voice blended beautifully with Michael’s smooth croon. “All I Want For Christmas Is You” will forever be Mariah’s song — no matter how many guys cover it — and she still owned this version, as Michael deferred to her and let her show off her pipes. Which, we will never complain about.

Michael’s Christmas special also featured some great solo performances, more duets with singers like Mary J. Blige and even an appearance by the Cookie Monster (because why not!?).
But we’ll always remember the night for Mariah and Michael’s duet. So HollywoodLifers, did you like the rendition as much as Mariah’s original? Watch the performance above and let us know!
