12 Days of Christmas Films #7

Today's choice is something a little different and much needed break from our typical festive films ...


Mariah Carey's Merriest Christmas

Last year, the Hallmark Channel brought us a special with the Queen of Christmas herself  - Mariah Carey (!) It's an hour long musical documentary where Mariah sings some of our favourite Christmas tunes and carols, may I add impeccably whilst slaying at every possible camera angle. There's beautiful music, elves and everyone in the audience seems to be having a great time; this is a light, fun viewing but will get you feeling super festive!

The music is broken up with Mariah talking about her own Christmas (if you're a Lamb, your soul was craving this. If you're a part of the population who believe Mariah is the most annoying person in the world, I'm sorry),a reading of a Christmas classic by Kelsey Grammar a stun-ning duet with Babyface,  and Santa Claus himself also makes a cameo.

Yes because it's Mariah, it's rather self absorbed. You've been warned, this isn't the Christmas show with Mariah, this is the Mariah show with Mariah believing she is the embodiment of Christmas (again if you're a Lamb, your soul was craving this. If you're a part of the population who believe Mariah is the most annoying person in the world, I'm sorry). The guests literally shower her with compliments that only come across as rehearsed and scripted by Mariah herself. That said, you cannot deny after watching this that she's one of the best vocalists of our time. And there's enough great music to distract you.

It's also now available on Netflix UK!
