Despite the fact that "All I Want for Christmas" was recently dethroned from its spot atop the "Most-Played Christmas Songs in Retail Stores" list, replaced by The Shins' version of "Wonderful Christmastime," there's no denying that Mariah Carey's tune is the most enduring addition to the Christmas canon from the past quarter-century - at least. So here are eight different covers of it. Which version best captures the sense of whimsical longing reflected in the original? Only one way to tell: Listen to all of them, preferably in one marathon sprint, and then do it again. Eight songs enter, »

You may remember Samantha Mumba as Ireland's answer to Britney Spears, a stunning singer who bared her midriff in music videos for catchy songs like "Baby Come on Over" in the memorable 2000s. Nowadays, Samantha is giving her younger self a run for her money. On Friday, the songstress showed off her killer bikini body during a family beach day in Malibu, CA. She splashed in the water, wandered in the sand with a smile, shared a sweet makeout session with her husband, Torray Scales, and doted on their daughter, Sage.

Digital Spy looks back at 7 of our favourite horror movie Final Girls, why they're iconic and what they're up to now...
Many horror fans thought Drew Barrymore would end up being Scream's Final Girl when they first watched Wes Craven's 1996 horror, but the director offed her in the opening moments leaving Neve Campbell's Sidney Prescott to face down Ghostface. »
Samantha Mumba is recovering after being involved in a terrifying car accident while 37-weeks pregnant.
