It’s not officially the holiday season until Mariah Carey‘s modern standard “All I Want For Christmas Is You” is ubiquitous — and Mimi gave the first live performance of the season last night at Rockefeller Center, in anticipation of tonight’s 15th annual Christmas in Rockefeller Center TV special. Rocking out to her tune in a busty (but beautiful!) ensemble, Mimi emancipated some Yuletide cheer with typically masterful vocals.
An additional treat: Carey also performed her Merry Christmas II You song “Christmas Time Is In The Air Again” (this time, dressed angelically in white), with a vocal delivery that even eclipsed her “All I Want” rendition. Watch that video after the jump.
