Mariah Carey’s Kids Join Her Sweet ‘All I Want for Christmas Is You’ Thanksgiving Day Parade Performance


The legally unofficial (but frankly rather official) Queen of Christmas made her Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade debut a family affair.

Pop icon Mariah Carey joined the annual NBC broadcast for a performance of her perennial holiday hit “All I Want for Christmas Is You” at the end of the event, just before Santa’s sleigh arrived on Manhattan’s 34th Street.

Wearing what looked like a crystallized umbrella (why not?), a bejeweled crown (“Queen of Christmas” whost!?), and a pink (new Christmas color staple, we don’t make the rules!) dress, Carey sang her signature song as dancers dressed as toy soldiers gathered around her.

During the performance, some gift boxes opened next to her to reveal her 11-year-old twins, Moroccan and Monroe, and they danced alongside her for the rest of the tune.

After Carey finished, NBC aired a hilariously short recording of Santa coming up behind, and if That doesn’t tell who the real king of the holidays is, we’re not sure what else could.

While Carey remains the foremost patron of pop culture Christmas cheer, the US Trademark Trial and Appeal Board recently ruled that the singer-songwriter cannot claim ownership of the official “Queen of Christmas” moniker.

As EW previously reported, Elizabeth Chan, a full-time Christmas performer, formally blocked Carey’s attempt to trademark the title in addition to the latter’s further move to register trademarks for “Princess Christmas” and “QOC.”
