Mariah Carey‘s 1994 holiday hit “All I Want for Christmas Is You” has been a Christmastime earworm for nearly three decades now. To celebrate the season and the success, today (December 8), Mariah released a brand-new music video to accompany the 29-year-old song.

Consisting of footage from her current month-long Merry Christmas One and All! tour, the new “All I Want For Christmas Is You” video features Mariah’s bandmates, backup singers, dancers, and choreographers — but it also pays special tribute to her fans and how much they continue to love the track.

“The best thing about being on tour is getting to celebrate the holidays with my lambily!! To show my appreciation, here is a new video for ‘All I Want for Christmas Is You,'” Mariah tweeted at midnight. “I’m calling this one the ‘Festive Lambs Edition’!”

Who are the Lambs?

Since the ’90s, the Mariah Carey fandom has gone by the nickname The Lambily (a combination of “lambs” and “family”). Mariah often refers to her fans as lambs, making her their shepherd.

Who makes an appearance in the new video?

Not only are there a few celebrity cameos in the new “All I Want For Christmas Is You (Festive Lambs Edition)” video, but Mariah’s 12-year-old twins, Monroe and Moroccan, are also featured.

See if you can spot Miley Cyrus, Nicole Richie, and Mario Lopez in the audience footage.

Merry Christmas One and All! Tour

Mariah’s extra-festive 2023 tour has been going on since November 15 and continues through December 17, with the final performance taking place at New York City’s Madison Square Garden. During these shows, Mariah performs Christmas covers like “Joy to the World,” “Oh Santa!,” and “Christmas (Baby, Please Come Home).”

And of course, she closes the concerts with “All I Want for Christmas Is You.”
