Jimmy Fallon, Mariah Carey, & The Roots: “All I Want For Christmas Is You”


It’s unlikely┬áthat Mariah Carey’s ‘All I Want For Christmas is You’ has ever been performed with more love. The Roots, Jimmy Fallon, some elementary school students, and Mariah herself gathered backstage before Jimmy’s show simply to have some fun. What they produced is pure genius.

If this doesn’t make you smile…I doubt anything will ­čśÇ

Backstage before the show, Jimmy, Mariah Carey, and The Roots grabbed some instruments you’d find in an elementary school classroom and stopped by the Late Night “Music Room” to sing Mariah’s holiday classic, “All I Want For Christmas Is You.” (instrument list below)
