The singer and actress appeared on the “Today” on Wednesday, and will continue to do so as part of her holiday pact with the network
Mariah Carey is celebrating the holiday season with NBC this year through a dozen special appearances on the network in what is being called “Mariah Carey’s 12 Days of Christmas.”
The singer will make appearances on all three hours of the “Today” on numerous days, while also stopping by other programs including “Access Hollywood,” “Extra,” Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live,” Al Sharpton’s “PoliticsNation” on MSNBC. She also plans on taking the stage with singer Michael Buble for his holiday concert airing Dec. 18.
Carey kicked off her holiday special appearances live from her festive Tribeca triplex in New York City on Wednesday morning’s “Today.”
Carey’s 12-day collaboration with NBC follows her opening and closing performances during the Christmas in Rockefeller Center Treelighting special, which earned its highest ratings in seven years.
Carey has been nicknamed the “Queen of Christmas,” as her holiday album, “Merry Christmas,” has sold over 14 million copies worldwide to date, while her 1994 singe “All I Want for Christmas Is You” continues to top Billboard’s holiday charts.
In addition to her yuletide appearances and performances, Carey will also headline NBC’s 2013 New Year’s Eve broadcast.
