Mariah Carey’s children take part in her sweet ‘All I Want for Christmas Is You’ Thanksgiving Day Parade performance
November 24, 2022
The legally unofficial (but, frankly, kind of official) Queen of Christmas made her Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade debut a family affair.
Pop icon Mariah Carey joined the annual NBC broadcast for a performance of her perennial holiday hit “All I Want for Christmas Is You” at the end of the event, just before Santa’s sleigh arrived on 34th Street in Manhattan.
Wearing a crystallized umbrella (because why not?), a jeweled crown (“Queen of Christmas” anyone!?) and a pink (new Christmas color, we don’t make the rules!) dress, Carey sang her signature song while dancers dressed as toy soldiers gathered around her.
During the performance, a pair of gift boxes flanking her opened to reveal her 11-year-old twins, Moroccan and Monroe, and they danced with her for the rest of the tune.

After Carey finished, NBC aired a hilarious short shot of Santa bringing up the rear, and if to doesn’t tell you who the real royalty of the holiday season is, we’re not sure what else could.
Although Carey remains pop culture’s foremost patron of Christmas cheer, the US Trademark and Appeals Board recently ruled that the singer-songwriter cannot claim ownership of the official “Queen of Christmas” moniker.
As EW previously reported, Elizabeth Chan, a full-time Christmas recording artist, formally blocked Carey’s attempt to trademark the title on top of the latter’s further moves to register trademarks for “Princess Christmas” and “QOC.”
Carey will next appear on the CBS TV special Merry Christmas to everyone on 20 Dec.
