Mariah Carey has never had the Christmas No1 with All I Want For Christmas Is You — surely that has to change in 2019

IT’S an outrage that the undisputed queen of festive pop MARIAH CAREY has not yet had the prestigious Christmas No1 single.

But this year will hopefully end that ridiculous situation as her fans launch a campaign to send All I Want For Christmas Is You to the top spot.

It’s an outrage that the undisputed queen of festive pop Mariah Carey, marking the 25th anniversaryof her album Merry Christmas, has not yet had the prestigious Christmas No1 single

It’s perfect timing with Mariah marking the 25th anniversary of her holiday album Merry Christmas with a new edition that features previously unreleased recordings and new material too.

She’s also released a new version of the iconic video for All I Want For Christmas Is You, featuring unseen footage from the shoot in 1993.

And have you ever wondered why Mariah is not singing the lyrics to the song in the now famous music video? Unbelievably, it’s because she filmed it before recording the song.

The special release also features her 1994 festive performance at The Cathedral of St. John The Divine in New York, which raised over £530,000 to benefit low income communities in the city.

Mariah officially kicked off Christmas yesterday with a hilarious video posted on her social media.

The clip showed Mariah falling asleep at 11.59pm on Halloween in the 80s rocker outfit she wore to HEIDI KLUM’s bash, only to be woken up at midnight wearing festive pajamas with a phone call from Santa.

Mariah, who in a cute touch set the twinkly opening notes of All I Want for Christmas as her ringtone, declares: “It’s time” before screaming with joy.

I’d love her to end up Christmas No1 a quarter of a century on.
