Sleigh-bells at the ready! Christmas has come early this year because the queen of the festive season, Mariah Carey has announced she has partnered with Ariana Grande, Jennifer Hudson and more for a Christmas extravaganza!

Mariah dropped a teaser on Wednesday featuring a sneak peek of her dressed yuletide attire with the familiar jingles from 'All I Want For Christmas Is You' tinkling in the background.

Mariah Carey's Magical Christmas Special will feature a large list of special celebrity guests including pop superstar Ariana Grande, fellow powerhouse vocalist Jennifer Hudson, Tiffany Haddish, Billy Eichner, Snoop Dogg, Jermaine Dupri, Misty Copeland and Mykal-Michelle Harris. Mariah's twins Morrocan and Monroe will join their mum for the special.

Even The Peanuts Gang, famous for Snoopy and Charlie Brown will be in attendance.

A performance of 'All I Want For Christmas Is You' is sure to happen too. Lucky us!

The synopsis per Hollywood Reporter reads: "Faced with a holiday cheer crisis, the North Pole knows there's only one person who can save the day: Santa's great friend, Mariah Carey."

There's more - Mariah, Ariana and Jennifer have teamed up for an extra special and extra festive remix of Mariah's other Christmas classic 'Oh Santa!' and there will be a music video.

A companion soundtrack will be available exclusively on Apple Music on 4 December and all other platforms a week later.

In August Apple TV+ and Mariah Carey confirmed they had partnered up for an "innovative special" that would mix music, dancing and animation "driven by a universally heartwarming story that brings the world together."

Last month Mariah posted a behind-the-scenes snapshot of three directors chairs with the initials MC, AG and JH along with the Christmas tree emoji. Mariah's lambs and social media went into overdrive to solve the Christmas (unsolved) mystery.

Mariah will join Apple Music's Zane Lowe for a special interview on 7 during which they will run through Carey's curated playlist of Christmas songs while spilling the tea on her latest music and recent memoir, The Meaning of Mariah Carey.

On Christmas day Carey will appear on Apple Music Hits for a six-hour Holiday Hits special, featuring festive songs including the soundtrack to all our Christmas celebrations, 'All I Want For Christmas Is You.'

Mariah Carey's Magical Christmas Special will be available globally on 4 December on Apple TV+.
