All we ever want for Christmas is more Mariah Carey, let's be honest.

Well, get ready for an onslaught of Mariah Carey coming your way. Announced earlier this year, we finally have confirmation of when 'Mariah Carey's Magical Christmas Special' will be landing on our screens - and which other celebrities will be gracing us with their presence too.

We might not have a lot of festive specials to look forward to this year, but Apple TV+ is making sure the Queen of Christmas has us covered for the winter ahead. And it sounds like the perfect remedy for anyone needing a festive wake-up call.

The line-up of the Christmas special has also been revealed, with Ariana Grande, Snoop Dogg, Jennifer Hudson, Tiffany Haddish, Billy Eichner, Jermaine Dupri, Misty Copeland, and Mykal-Michelle Harris all expected to make an appearance. The singer's twins Moroccan and Monroe will also be showing up.

Grande and Hudson will be joining Carey as part of the three singers coming together to release a brand new record for Christmas 2020, 'entitled 'Oh Santa!'. The single will also be released on the same day as the Apple TV+ special.

The companion soundtrack to the special will also be released in December, with brand new interpretations of her hits. The soundtrack will be available exclusively on Apple Music December 4, and all other platforms on December 11.


On Christmas Day, Apple Music Hits, one of their new radio stations, will be cranking out a six-hour Holiday Hits special with the singer. Guaranteed to feature 'All I Want For Christmas Is You', Carey will be taking over the airways, telling fans about her own holiday memories, with extra artists and hosts sharing their own Christmas messages.

Here's the official synopsis of Carey's Christmas special on Apple TV+:

Faced with a holiday cheer crisis, the North Pole knows there's only one person who can save the day: Santa’s great friend, Mariah Carey. Combining musical performances, dynamic dancing and groundbreaking animation, the undisputed Queen of Christmas jumps into action to create a holiday spectacular to make the whole world merry.

'Mariah Carey's Magical Christmas Special' will debut on Apple TV+ on December 4.
