The video opens with Tiffany Haddish narrating a very Carey version of “Twas The Night Before Christmas.”

“I’ve got a great story to tell you,” Haddish begins. “Twas the night before Christmas and 2020 had been rough. So Santa decided the season couldn’t be merrier without the one and only Mariah Carey.”

Carey then says “This Christmas we could all use a little magic,” before she launches into her hit song “All I Want for Christmas Is You,” which is one of the most popular holiday singles of all time.

The singer-songwriter is joined on the special by Ariana Grande, Jennifer Hudson, Misty Copeland, Snoop Dogg, Jermaine Dupri, Billy Eichner, and Mykal-Michelle Harris.

Per the official description, the special will take viewers “on a magical journey to save Christmas after a tough year.”

The program is co-directed by BAFTA Award winner Hamish Hamilton and Oscar nominee and Golden Globe winner Roman Coppola, who also serves as executive producer.

Mariah Carey’s Magical Christmas Special begins streaming Dec. 4 on Apple TV+. A companion soundtrack of Carey’s holiday hits and new interpretations will be released exclusively on Apple Music on Dec. 4, and all other platforms on Dec. 11.
