You know it, you love it, you dance around the house in pajamas to it while baking cookies or sipping spiked hot cocoa. It’s the Mariah Carey holiday classic, “All I Want For Christmas,” and frankly we don’t even remember how we ever celebrated before its existence. The star of E! docuseries Mariah’s World is without question the queen of Christmas (a quick Google image search will show you that she’s unapologetic about her love for all things merry and bright), and her best-selling holiday ditty has been covered by everyone from Bastille to Michael Bublé, but the performance that just stole our hearts comes from a very young up-and-comer, and we’ve got a feeling Mariah won’t mind him stealing a little of her thunder. It’s her 5-year-old son Moroccan and after seeing the video the iconic singer posted to her Instagram account, it’s obvious this kid inherited his mama’s star quality.
Carey took a brief break from her strict salmon and caper diet to simmer some red sauce (in a silky nightgown, naturally) and blast her beloved song as one half of “Dem Babies” danced and lip-synced along like a total pro. Now all we want for Christmas is an encore performance. May we put in a request for “Santa Claus Is Coming To Town?”
