Kardinyl’s skag drag is full-on festive as he bumps, grinds, twirls and humps a Christmas tree to the tune of Mimi’s 1994 holiday chestnut, all to the delight of a series of wide-eyed onlookers on Chatroulette. From shirtless bros who thought they were in for some naughty “show me yours…” action to an old tie-dyed hippie with a Santa beard, no one is immune to the giddy charms of the Internet’s class clown of 2013.

Among the many revelations that Mariah shared were the suspicion that she’s related to Natalie Cole and her preference for Agent Provocateur high-heel slippers. The Lamb Whisperer also talked about enduring festive anthem “All I Want For Christmas Is You”, which is currently top 20 on iTunes — 19 years after its 1994 release. Watch magic happen up top.

The classy Canadian has taken a less-is-more approach to vocal acrobatics this era, only pulling the trigger when the material absolutely calls for it. As such, Celine’s version is surprisingly subtle and restrained. Her peerless vocals calmly sail over the delicate orchestral arrangement before finally unleashing at the very end. Listen after the jump. More »
But the pop releases haven’t stopped just yet! Our beloved ringleader Britney Spears released her eighth studio album Britney Jean, her Most Personal Album Ever, while we saw new releases from the likes of Justin Bieber. Lana Del Rey dropped her long-awaited, gorgeously shot mini-film Tropico. And, we at Idolator started taking a look back at 2013 with our favorite albums list. Did your favorites make the cut too? If not — don’t worry, we’ve got a readers poll going too! And, we even got some of our faves to weigh in on their faves, starting with Tegan & Sara.
And finally, Idol alum Carrie Underwood pulled off the (near) impossible with a live staging of The Sound Of Music on NBC. It was a ratings smash — but did you like it? As always, you guys had plenty to say about this week’s pop happenings. More »
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. More »
Mimi belted out a holiday medley in two suitably glamorous ensembles. There was a body-hugging red dress, which she teamed with long black gloves, and a gem-studded, sparkly white gown. It goes without saying that Mariah looked absolutely divine. Her performance will be aired on NBC tonight. More »
But that’s not all — there was tons happening in pop: Almighty diva Mariah Carey dropped her long-awaited “The Art Of Letting Go,” RiRi gave us something to get scared about with the creepy “What Now” video and we started looking back at the best albums of 2013. (Have you voted yet?) Plus, we celebrated the 10 year anniversary of Jay-Z‘s The Black Album and the 5 year B’Day of Beyonce‘s I Am…Sasha Fierce with a Stan & Deliver.
We also had a bunch of premieres ourselves, including Never Shout Never‘s Christmas collabo with Dia Frampton on “Meet Me Under The Mistletoe” and Sabi‘s cover of Fleetwood Mac‘s “Dreams” And of course, you guys had a ton of things to say about all the releases this week. Check it out! More »
“While my team, and an incredible group of people from Facebook, partied while listening to the properly mixed and mastered version of ‘The Art of Letting Go’ on repeat from my iPod on my home speakers… there was no reason for me to wonder if the final mix we were listening to in that room together was different than what you were listening to!”
Mariah the explained that the incorrect version is only slightly different to the finished version. But that’s not the point. “There’s no doubt in my mind that this sounds like a self absorbed diva on a ‘woe-is-me’ tangent about a couple of ad libs or some other triviality, but the reality is this is me, focusing solely on the record, wanting you to hear it and experience it the right way,” she concluded.
The moral of the story is — don’t mess with Mimi’s sonic perfection while she’s partying with big wigs! I hope this guy at least got a reference before being walked out of the building and banished from the industry forever. Listen to the correct version of “The Art Of Letting Go” after the jump.

This is so much fun. Mariah looks amazing wandering from room to room with her long black gloves and bejeweled microphone and the fan reactions are hilarious. I actually think these Lambs did a great job of staying composed. If this happened to me I would be levitating like the mom in The Conjuring. Watch up top. More »
Carey starting off bluntly when asked if she enjoyed her time on the reality singing competition: “Honestly, I hated it.” Much of her distress, apparently, was due to the fact that she was under the impression it would be a three-person panel with Randy Jackson and not-Nicki. The result? “It was like Hell. It was like going to work everyday in Hell with Satan,” she laughed. “Nah I’m just playing. It didn’t affect me that much.” That sort of joking-but-not-really shade is straight out of Diva Power Moves 101.
