Mariah Carey Announces Hallmark Christmas Musical / Recruits Babyface

Published: Tuesday 8th Dec 2015 by Sam

Mariah Carey is cementing her status as a Christmas maven for the ages.

The ever festive diva already boasts the only song to be deemed a Holiday classic in the last four decades and this year builds on that legacy with a lengthy list of Xmas activity.

As previously reported, she stars in and serves as executive producer of Hallmark‘s original TV movie ‘A Christmas Melody.’ And today, it’s been announced that that partnership will also see Mimi stage a one-hour televised concert.

Titled ‘Mariah Carey’s Merriest Christmas,’ the musical special features performances of Holiday songs from Carey herself, including a duet with 11-time Grammy winner Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds.

Additionally, Emmy winner Kelsey Grammer gives a reading of ‘The Night Before Christmas,’ while cast members from ‘A Christmas Melody’ join the festivities sharing holiday memories and experiences from working on the movie.

‘Mariah Carey’s Merriest Christmas’ airs immediately following the film at 10pm ET, December 19th, on Hallmark.

    Who wants to see one hour of lip syncing and struggle notes? NOOOBODY *keith sweat voice*

    • Bravo!! December 9, 2015

      I’m sure the individual who dislike your comment are true Mariah Carey fans. So if you are, then you should know her voice is not the same. Your right it going to be an hour of struggling vocals and lip syncing.. But she will always be a legendary singer.

    Love Mariah. Fyi, she could have found a better looking boyfriend, because damn, that is one ugly ass white guy “Well white guy’s aren’t necessarily that attractive to begin with”. Anyway, looking forward Mariah.

    • OMG Logic!!! December 8, 2015

      They’re not? Is that why Black gays go out of their way to get on those White asses?

      • Carlos perez December 8, 2015

        I don’t take notice, sorry.

      • Carlos perez December 8, 2015

        They’re not, at all. Also to wit

      • Carlos perez December 8, 2015

        Sorry but they’re not, at all. Also, to whether black guys “who I think are extremely s***” are trying to pick up white guys, or not, we all have a preference.

      • LAMB December 9, 2015

        Are you sure?

      • John December 9, 2015

        Even I like Mariah, and I know 19k won’t be watching. Now, if we were to talk album sales, more than 19k would buy a Mariah album.

    • Terny December 9, 2015

      He’s Obsessed over her

  10. Jimmy December 8, 2015

    Somebody inform the pig her career has been over for years lol – what a fat cow.

    • kareem December 8, 2015

      Then if her carrer is over, how is she being payed over a million dolars just foer a three song concert and now doing this? I swear you idiots just come on the internet to chat $hit. every opportunity you get. If you are not going to watch it just say so. Obviously millions other are watching I mean her net worth is over 700 mil plus a billionaire man. An this is for everyone else who keeps talking crap about every other artist out there that are succeeding. Obviously they weren’t rich off your money( if you have any), so just make a change in your life and Shut Up. Thank you in advance!

  11. Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans December 8, 2015

    She lost so much weight and she’s been all smiles and glowing lately. You can’t tell that successful, wealthy diva nothing when she’s feeling confident and good. The Christmas queen she is indeed. It’s like the haters don’t even exist to her. I can’t wait for this movie to premiere and her residency concert movie to show too. God bless the Christmas Queen and musical legend.

    • AnnaliseKeatingsNewWig December 9, 2015

      Yas hunny, YAS! Legendriah is queen of the holidays and she looks snatched! even if she never releases another song again, Mimi is still going to get those christmas gold coins based on on AIWFCIY.

  12. True Lambily December 8, 2015

    Love u mimi PLEASE DO A U.S TOUR!!

  13. Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans December 8, 2015

    Sam, Rashad, David, somebody! PLEASE post on how Chris Brown is on instagram BEGGING his fans to pre-order his album because he wants to do “big first week numbers”. He is so delusional. He’s about to be very hurt and cussing everybody out when it flops hard just like he did during the “Graffiti” era. Team Breezy, prepare yourself for your “bi-polar diagnosed” fave’s rants towards y’all when he sees y’all didnt come through for him yet again.

    “Nooooooo don’t do it…reconsider” in my Andre 3000 voice

  15. OMG Logic!!! December 8, 2015

    I worry about Mother Mariah’s yo-yo dieting. She went from overweight to skinny in the course of a month. Take care of yourself girl. The body doesn’t like that kind of thing when you’re past your 20s.

  16. Theman December 9, 2015

    She sounded great at her concert. She should just sing where she’s comfortable at! She is amazing. It won’t be no struggling if she just sings like she can in the pocket..

  17. No favs, just here for the music December 9, 2015

    She looks awesome. Hopefully she will also sound awesome lol

  18. AnnaliseKeatingsNewWig December 9, 2015

    Sam can you post the interview Coldplay with James Corden about working with Beyonce. It had me in hysterics!

  19. JOHNVIDAL December 9, 2015

    What a great surprise! Can´t wait.
    She looks spectacular in that picture btw. Go Mariah Carey!

  20. Teflon Boy December 9, 2015

    I’m here for this.., as a true Lamb tho I do hope the fact it’s a pre-recorded televised event means that the vocals are 100% live.., even pared down and low key, real singing is what we all want from her.
