Mariah Carey and two of her biggest fans — Leona Lewis and Ariana Grande — kicked off the festive season last night (December 4) with stellar performances on NBC’s Christmas In Rockefeller Center. Given Mimi’s obvious influence on the careers of her co-stars, the sparkly Xmas special turned out to be something of a diva duel. And they all brought their A-games.

When it comes to Christmas, nobody does it better than Mariah. Period. The queen of the holidays looked ravishing in her plunging gowns and showed off her full range with spectacular renditions of “Joy To The World” and her own Yuletide classic “All I Want For Christmas Is You”.

Wearing a shiny gold dress, Leona more than held her own with perky holiday hit “One More Sleep” and a glorious interpretation of “White Christmas”. Her backing vocalists could do with dance lessons though. Also on the bill was Yours Truly songbird Ariana Grande, who expertly performed new single “Love Is Everything”. Watch the divas in action after the jump.
