Christmas is finally here!

Ok, maybe not quite, but Mariah Carey singing “All I Want For Christmas Is You” is as good as. Talk show host and music lover Jimmy Fallon orchestrated a musical get together that took place backstage at his show in a festively decorated dressing room, with his house band The Roots providing the backing track for Mariah to belt out her song.

Yes, we’ve heard this song a thousand times, but Fallon decided to switch it up a bit and challenged the talented Roots by making them use instruments found in an elementary school classroom, including a xylophone, flute and bongos. Fallon attempts to sing the intro before he’s joined by the American Idol judge, who thankfully takes over singing duties, and she’s also joined by four singing school children to keep the elementary theme going.
