All You Want For Christmas Is Carpool Karaoke With Mariah, Adele, Gaga, Elton, And Many More [VIDEO]

This is SO much fun. Vanity Fair recaps:

What did we do to deserve James Corden? It’s been quite a year, but at last it’s time to start wrapping it up—and the Late Late Show host has apparently been working for all of 2016 to make sure his viewers do so in the best way possible.

How? By quietly enlisting a sampling of his “Carpool Karaoke” guests to belt out their best rendition of Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas.” And like every good present, this one comes with a nice bow on top: Carey herself, who took a quick spin with Corden to do some last-minute shopping.

This one kicks off in style: Corden’s in a festive sweater, and the Elusive Chanteuse is in what appears to be a red leather blazer. Because ’tis the season. Before long, though, the video cuts to various guests of “Carpool Karaoke” past: Adele, Demi Lovato and Nick Jonas, Elton John, Selena Gomez, Lady Gaga, Chris Martin, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Gwen Stefani.

    I had to skip over the Pariah Scarey portions.

    • Acronym Jim

      James is NEVER going to get all the glitter out of that car.

      • Miji

        Glitter is like radiation. You’ll never get rid of it all.

        • MT YVR

          My faaavourite phrase:

          Glitter is the herpes of the craft world. Once you get it, you’ll never get rid of it.

      • Lumpy Gaga

        He’s not even going to try.

  • Bluto

    someone deserves an editing award.

    • loosevowels

      for editing out Madonna !

  • Do Something Nice

    Hasn’t the exposed breast fashion thingy run its course?

    • TuuxKabin

      Nope. Nor the ‘only thing that moves on a face are the eyes.

    • ByronK

      It looks like Mariah’s left one is playing coy. Or needs some air pressure.

      • Todd

        Maybe this would help her.

      • Rolf

        I think it was the seatbelt that made the one on the right look like it was hogging the stage.

      James Corden knows…

    • Xiao Ai

      I don’t think Elton can help it.

    • bambinoitaliano

      It’s her trade mark.

    • karmanot

      Mariah’s party balloons are escaping!

  • TuuxKabin

    Waiting for big hairy crack up.

    • Jeffrey

      I could post a pic, but I think I’d get kicked off of Dis- oh, you mean a crash.

      • TuuxKabin

        The Confucius saying.

  • BearEyes

    a needed palette cleanser.
    Well done for the editing!

  • fastlanestranger

    Mariah seems just so likable and relatable to me, the everyman.

    • Rolf

      Last I heard she was getting a role in Westworld as a defective android whose only emotion is disdain.

      • fastlanestranger

        LOL “All I want for Christmas is BEEP BOOP.”

  • Gigi

    This made my day! (It helped that we were given a brief glimpse of Nick Jonas.)

  • Slippy_World
  • Ragnar Lothbrok

    Love Love this.

  • JTC

    I liked it, even though working in retail for the past few years pretty much wiped out my holiday spirit. Putting Christmas stuff out in September and dealing with customers on Black Friday and the rest of the season just makes me a grouch this time of year.
    Also, is it a bad thing to admit I have a crush on James? 😀

    • Miji

      I know what you mean. I spent several years designing and installing holiday decor and it just kills it. And then I get to my sister’s for the holidays and a get a request to help do the tree. If my nieces weren’t in the room that would have garnered a big ole FU.

      • JTC

        Definitely. On another note, one thing people can’t grasp is that you don’t want to do any job-related on your time off.

        • perversatile

          “a busman’s holiday”
          -a vacation or form of recreation that involves doing the same thing that one does at work.

  • DaddyRay

    That was great

  • Cousin Bleh

    There was a funny scene the other night on Black-ish where the grandparents claim they grew up listening to “All I Want for Christmas.”

    “Earl and I first made love to that song in 1971.” “Sure did, baby.”

  • Strepsi

    I’ve never really liked her style of songs enough to buy any album, but MARIAH gets a lifetime pass from me for doing the nearly impossible: one of the only songwriters in the last 50 years to write an original Christmas song that has truly become a standard.

    • Lane

      I think Wham!’s “Last Christmas” is pretty much a standard too.

      • Lane

        There are a few others that have gotten close:
        ELP’s “I Believe in Father Christmas”
        The Kinks’ “Father Christmas”
        The Pogues’ “Fairy Tale of New York”
        The Pretenders’ “2000 Miles”
        Live Aid’s “Do They Know it’s Christmas”
        The Waitresses’ “Christmas Wrapping”

        • Strepsi

          I LOVE all those songs – but can’t consider them standards. No matter where, restaurant, mall, market, I will hear “All I Want For Christmas Is You” along with “Deck The Halls”, etc.
          Some other great modern Christmas songs you’d like given that list:
          Elton John – “Step Into Christmas”
          Joni Mitchell – “River”
          Wizzard – “I Wish It Could Be Christmas Every Day”
          Kate Bush – “December Will Be Magic Again”
          Gordon Lightfoot // Sarah McLachlan – “Song for a Winter’s Night”

          • Lane

            I was going by what I hear while shopping, and “Christmas Wrapping”, “2000 Miles”, and unquestionably “Last Christmas” get played heavily. The others are definitely more melancholy (well, so is “2000 Miles”, but it’s still played regularly).

            I was leaving out McCartney’s “Wonderful Christmas Time” and Elton’s “Step into Christmas” because they feel more “manufactured” to me, akin to Stephen Colbert’s “Another Christmas Song”.

            Thanks for the other suggestions — I’ll check them out.

          • Strepsi

            Yeah “Christmas Wrapping” kind of made a comeback!

            Haha “Wonderful Christmastime” — a friend of mine does a mean impersonation of Linda McCartney on that song, basically holding down 1 key on her synthesizer… lol

          • Lane

            Christmas Wrapping was also covered by … the Spice Girls.


          • Strepsi

            Thanks lane!

            p.s. poor fucker who made that video spelled “Wrapping” wrong…

          • Lane

            I like the Save Ferris version also:

    • Lane

      And “Last Christmas” was covered by… well, there were at least 485 different versions collected by Last-Christmas [dotcom] before he shut down that site in early 2012. Most were novelty versions, but many were also sincere efforts at covering it.

    • perversatile
    • Lane

      And one more, just for fun: Sarah Silverman’s “Give the Jew Girl Toys”. Maybe not a standard, but it’s in my Christmas playlist for sure.

      And she totally gets points for rhyming “Jesus” and “penis”.

  • JDS

    If she hits any higher notes her bosom will pop out of that tight dress. Geez Mariah have a little class about yourself.

    • Beagle

      Mariah Carey songs — the perfect substitute for a dog whistle.

  • bmoore4026

    Well, hello, Mariah Carey’s boobies. How are you today?

  • Natty Enquirer

    I don’t want a lot for Christmas;
    There is just one thing I need.
    I don’t care about the presents
    Underneath the Christmas tree.
    I just want one for my two
    Before the cold air turns them blue.
    Make my wish come true.
    All I want for Christmas is

  • boobert

    BOOBIES! Geez , Elton , get a larger shirt! lol

  • objectivistking

    Please stop posting about carpool fucking karioke for the love of everything. Please.

    • ETownCanuck

      Bah Humbug!

  • Gerry Fisher

    Hey, it’s Mariah and her cleavage again!

  • T-Batwoman

    Does Carey always have her boobs out?

  • OCW

    This morning on the CBS news Charlie Rose commented, “Doesn’t she look great in red!” LOL

  • Oh’behr

    I know them by their music, yet not always by their faces.
    Yet I like Carpool Karaoke.
