It’s that time of the year again when we make snowmen, decorate Christmas trees, listen to carols and watch Mariah Carey make millions with her “All I Want For Christmas” cover. This year, the singer worked with Jimmy Fallon, and his band, The Roots, to create a new video that could soon go viral, says the Inquisitr.
During Wednesday’s edition of Jimmy Fallon’s “Late Night Show”, Mariah Carey teamed up with the talk show host and his in-house band The Roots to give a unique interpretation of the much-loved song “All I Want For Christmas (Is You)”. The artists grabbed some of the funniest instruments they could find backstage, such as, a recorder and a melodica, and pulled off one of the best interpretations of the song.
The first to start singing was Jimmy Fallon, who was soon accompanied by his band members. The empty space next to Fallon was later on filled by the ravishingly good looking Mariah Carey all dressed in red. Mimi’s amazing voice and the soul sound of The Roots have successfully transformed the classic Christmas song into a joyful and modern track. Several children would play along with the ad hoc band during the most important moments of the song.
It seems Jimmy Fallon’s audience is not the only one who appreciated the new version of Mariah’s song. The video recorded more than 2 million views in just one day and it has all the chances of becoming viral given the arrival of the holiday season.
Just like the 1994 version of “All I Want For Christmas”, the new video has been embellished with lots of festive elements. The singers are all dressed with funny colorful sweaters, whereas the backstage of Jimmy Fallon’s show was decorated with Christmas ornaments and garlands.
