9 Reasons Mariah Carey’s ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’ Is the Best Holiday Song of All Time

2 hours ago | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

The holidays aren’t here until Mariah Carey says so. But when you hear "All I Want For Christmas Is You" -- that’s it. It’s time.

That’s just the way it’s been since 1994, when the jolly diva dropped that musical gift under our tree. Now a ubiquitous modern-day classic, its tambourine-shaking, bell-ringing, high note-hitting joyfulness could turn even Grumpy Cat’s frown upside down.

Video: Who Covered Carey's 'Christmas' Best?

Here are nine tributes to the original song that prove – even now, 20 years later – that all we want for Christmas is Mariah:

1. Magic Mariah

Not even elves or jiving gingerbread men can upstage a diva (watch as she even throws them some shade). When Carey belted the tune in 2004 at the Walt Disney World Christmas Day Parade, the magic wasn’t happening inside the kingdom – it was happening on that stage.

2. Holly, Jolly and Retro

Have a Very '90s (and Early '00s) Christmas

6 hours ago | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Is it even possible to reminisce about Christmas in the '90s without getting Mariah Carey's "All I Want For Christmas" or *Nsync's "Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays" stuck in your head? How about TLC's "Sleigh Ride"? And I still have a vivid memory of listening to Adam Sandler's hilarious classic "The Chanukah Song" on the radio back before the days of Spotify. If you want to take a trip down holiday season memory lane, listen to our '90s - and early '00s, because it just wouldn't be complete without Britney Spears and Destiny's Child - playlist below! For more holiday tunes, get our romantic Christmas playlist here. "8 Days of Christmas," Destiny's Child "All I Want For Christmas," Mariah Carey "All I Want Is You (This Christmas)," *Nsync "Baby It's Cold Outside," Vanessa Williams and Bobby Caldwell "Carolina Christmas," Squirrel Nut Zippers "The Chanukah Song," Adam Sandler »

Ariana Grande's New Christmas Song: How it Compares to Mariah's 'All I Want for Christmas Is You'

24 November 2014 5:55 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Ariana Grande's  Mariah Carey comparisons continue!

The 21-year-old "Love Me Harder" singer dropped a new holiday song on Monday titled "Santa Tell Me," but is the holiday upbeat tune similar to Carey's "All I Want for Christmas Is You"?

Both songs showcase both singers' powerful vocal ranges, and they are both about wanting love during the holidays.

The lyrics for "Santa Tell Me" say, "Santa tell me if you're really there. Don't make me fall in love again if he won't be here next year. Santa tell me if he really cares 'cause I can’t give it all away if he won't be here next year."

You can listen to it here.

Now throw back to 20 years ago, and listen to "All I Want for Christmas." Carey asks Santa, "Won't you bring me the one I really need? Won't you please bring my baby to me?"

Listen to Ariana Grande’s New Christmas Song

24 November 2014 9:55 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

How is Ariana Grande attempting to achieve Mariah Carey–style dominance over the pop market? Steps 1 and 2 ("Look like Mariah Carey" and "Sound like Mariah Carey," respectively) have already been accomplished, and now it's time for Step 3: Record a potential new addition to the Christmas canon, the way Carey did with "All I Want for Christmas Is You." Last year's Christmas Kisses Ep failed to provide Grande with a future classic, so she's trying again this year with a new Christmas single, "Santa Tell Me." The good news is that it sounds nothing like Mariah. The bad news is that it sounds just like Amy Grant. They can't all be "Drummer Boy." »

Mariah Carey “Obsessed” With Christmas?

19 November 2014 3:22 PM, PST | GossipCop | See recent GossipCop news »

Mariah Carey is so obsessed with Christmas that she decorates her entire home with "lights, trees and snow globes" beginning every November 1, claims In Touch. The tab goes on to report that one of the reasons she’s such a “fanatic” and brings in the holiday season as "early as possible" is that it gives her an excuse to watch herself in the music video for her 1994 song "All I Want for Christmas Is You."

Best of Late Night TV: Jennifer Lawrence's Platonic Colonic and Channing Tatum's Box of Lies (Video)

12 November 2014 10:26 PM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.

Let's kick things off with Channing Tatum, who played a rowdy game of "Box of Lies" with Jimmy Fallon on "The Tonight Show." Not only was he the first male guest to ever play the game, he had to describe Et phoning home in a sleeping bag covered in crowns. No bigs.

Jennifer Lawrence stopped by "Late Show" and wasted no time talking about her chronic stomach issues. Long story short, she wants to get a "Platonic Colonic" with Josh Hutcherson. Totally normal friendship bonding session.

It's a well-established fact that Jennifer Lawrence hates singing, so naturally David Letterman forced her to croon with him on national television. The results? »

Nick Cannon Bringing Back Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous

12 November 2014 8:30 PM, PST | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

Who would know better about the lifestyles of the rich and famous than Nick Cannon. The soon to be ex-husband of Mariah Carey has lived a privileged life due to his own work and his marriage. Now he is teaming up with NBC to bring back the former show, Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous. The former 90s show (not related to Good Charlotte’s old song) gave us an inside look of rich peoples homes. The show previous had a good run but ended a few years before reality TV became big. Nick will show the homes from his Pov and it will also give charity coverage of those uber wealthy people. No word on when we can expect the show to return.

I am happy for Nick, since he will likely need a high profile job to stay on top. Without being tied to Mariah, he needs to »

The Dawg is done.

Randy Jackson announced yesterday that he is leaving "American Idol" after 13 seasons as a judge and mentor. The former musician and producer has been with the Fox reality competition from the start.

"After 13 seasons, I felt now was the perfect time to leave 'American Idol,,'" he said in a statement to Deadline. "I'm proud to have been a part of a series that discovered some incredible artists and will go down in history as one of the most successful television shows ever. A true original, Idol started it all. Onto what's next."

Jackson first tried to leave "Idol" in 2013, after season 12 ended.

"Idol" invited Jackson back as a mentor, to replace Jimmy Iovine, and he accepted.

Eminem Praises Ray Rice with Violent Lyric Against Lana Del Rey

11 November 2014 9:13 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

What's Eminem got against Lana Del Rey?!

In a new video released in promotion of the rapper's Shady Xv compilation, he not only calls out the "Summertime Sadness" singer but he also references former Baltimore Ravens player Ray Rice's domestic abuse scandal.

The controversial lyrics, which can be heard at 15:37 in the rhyme, reads: "But I may fight for gay rights, especially if they dyke is more of a knockout than Janay Rice/ Play nice? B**ch I’ll punch Lana Del Rey right in the face twice, like Ray Rice in broad daylight in the plain sight of the elevator surveillance/ ’Til her head is banging on the railing, then celebrate with the Ravens."

Video: Chris Pratt Raps 'Forgot About Dre'

The "elevator surveillance" line refers to when Rice was caught hitting his then fiancee (now wife) on an elevator camera.
