If there was any doubt about how much “diva” will be injected into the VH1 Divas revival next month, it was dispelled moments ago.

Because Mariah Carey has been named as the first act to grace the stage at the Christmas-themed special

Details await below…

Set to tape Dec. 2nd and air on Dec 5th, ‘VH1 Divas Holiday: Unsilent Night’ concert special takes place at the Kings Theatre in Mimi’s hometown of New York.

A full-circle moment for the star, her appearance will serve as her third time participating after two prior stints. A run which includes the extravaganza’s 1998 debut.

Speaking in a statement, the newly-single songstress said:

“I’m thrilled VH1 asked me to return to the DIVAS stage this year. The DIVAS special offers a wonderful opportunity to perform for my fans over the holidays, which is my favorite and most festive time of year.”

The gig joins a full plate of promotion for the 46-year-old, who is uber busy this Holiday season. Indeed, she has the premiere of her E! docu-series ‘Mariah’s World’ and a run of Christmas concerts at the Beacon Theater; both of which also kick off in December.

More performers for VH1 Divas are set to be announced imminently.

    Who cares

    Post the FORBES highest earning women list

    • Jesse November 3, 2016

      Did she make the list? I saw Beyoncé, Rihanna, Britney and Jlo but no Mariah or Nicki or ariana?

      • Jamon November 3, 2016

        Who cares if she didn’t make it, she’s worth more then everyone you mentioned!

    • Chasin Time November 3, 2016

      I can already predict it. Sam will write the Article and the headline will be Beyoncé and Taylor Swift lead Forbes…” but has Beyoncé been the Top earner it would be “Beyoncé leads Forbes…”

    • Gabe November 3, 2016

      But will she finally sing MISS YOU MOST AT CHRISTMAS TIME and stop this dodging the song. HER LAMBS want it.

      • Lamb November 3, 2016

        Well I’ve been to her Christmas Concerts in NYC and the show I was at she sung “Miss You Most At Christmas Time”.

    Mariah and her team are going for gold this Christmas!!!! Now that streams are counting towards Hot 100 placement on Billboard, she actually has a shot at getting “All I Want For Christmas is You” to the #1 spot after 22 years!!!!! The song made it to #11 last year just off the strength of radio and sales, not even counting that is was a streaming monster! She’s got Divas Live 2016, her Christmas concerts at the Beacon, her Carpool Karaoke with James Corden, her own Christmas Special that’s about to be announced!!! She’s all over the place!

      Don’t forget ‘Mariah’s World’ which will probably start advertising around this time.., *phew* all we need now is that new album and we have a home straight re-Emancipation. Speaking of which, it is becoming more and more apparent that ‘Mariah’s World’ will double up as clever promo for the new project that’s coming in the spring.., it also gives them a bit more time to edit James Packer out of the footage lol.

    One of the hallmarks of Mariah’s legendary status is the fact that she was able to pen and produce one of the most iconic Christmas tunes of all time. Every single year since its release in 1994, she’s been highly associated with that time of the year because of that song. Love and live for it.

  5. The A Team November 3, 2016

    YASSS MIMI you better slay these winter months
    but on a side note i have so much admiration for this woman. Her heart is broken and shes continuing to work so hard. I really hope AIWFC reaches the top 10 this year. she deserves that

  6. Meteorite November 3, 2016

    All I Want For Christmas Is A Christina and Mariah Duet!!! Make It Come True VH1!!!

    • Chin0 November 3, 2016

      Wouldn’t that be epic if they both performed that night,i just hope VH1 has real divas like back in the day, fresh divas like bey,adele, xtina, pink, alicia

      • jackson November 3, 2016

        Most of who you named aren’t back in the day divas.

  7. IG @ MIXEDBOY November 3, 2016

    WOW this is really SLAYAGE with all that is going on for her this Xmas/Winter! Never count out true talent. They will ALWAYS prove you wrong.

  8. Lana Lover November 3, 2016

    Get that pre recorded track ready sis.

  9. LC November 3, 2016

    Who else will be there? I’d love to Beyonce, Christina Aguilera, Fantasia, and a few others.

    • Chin0 November 3, 2016

      Please NOT jennifer Hudson

      • Lauded November 4, 2016

        itll definitely be an unsilent night then.?

  10. JOHNVIDAL November 3, 2016

    Oh wow I´m truly surprised. I thought they were going to ask non-factors once again (remember the very last editions of this “show”). It will never be like the first two in 1998 and 1999. But this is good that a real legendary diva will be there. They can really fix it in a way adding only more real talent and not fillers. They could easily get Gaga or Beyonce, maybe to pay homage to Mariah. Same way the huge divas from the 90s paid tribute to Aretha in the very first edition. There are still many talented female artists out there, just not bring in the models with a mic and it will be ok. There´s a lack of DIVAS though. But that they cannot fix it, not their fault.

    • LC November 4, 2016

      Oh yeah, I forgot about Gaga. They could bring Solange in too. She would be something different and she loves Mariah.

    • Teflon Boy November 4, 2016

      Sorry Darrrling but Mariah is too young and s*** to be tributed like some ageing Diva!

  11. Jason November 3, 2016

    That title is awful! “Vh1 Divas Holiday” is just fine.

    Another MC xmas slayage

  14. Lauded November 4, 2016

    Mariah should really do an indepth interview about her songs. Especially her back catalogue. I mean how many artist can say they wrote a christmas classic. Talented woman. I would LMFAO if this song goes number 1 on the hot 100 this year.
