At the start of the trailer, Mariah says: “I can’t not celebrate Christmas with the world.”

It continues with snippets of her singing standards such as Christmas (Baby Please Come Home), originally by Darlene Love.

Mariah has become synonymous with the festive season thanks to her hit All I Want For Christmas Is You, despite the fact it took until Christmas 2020 for it to finally reach number one in the UK – 26 years after its release.

The song initially peaked at number two in 1994, missing out to East 17’s Stay Another Day, but reached the top spot following a close battle with Last Christmas by Wham!
