If your idea of a good Christmas singalong is Mariah's All I Want For Christmas Is You, then you'll be excited to hear about her new Christmas TV special.

The pop icon has just revealed that Apple TV will release another Christmas special, called Mariah's Christmas: The Magic Continues.

The show will feature the star singing all her iconic songs, which of course will include her famous Christmas hits and also a new rendition of Christmas (Baby Please Come Home).

When Mariah posted the trailer on her Instagram her fans went wild, commenting that they were 'so ready' for her amazing vocals.  

The Fantasy singer, who has recently supported Britney's #FreeBritney movement, teased the show at the beginning of the month, with a picture of her behind a clapperboard. 

However, she confirmed the show and when it would air this week, via Instagram, when she posted a trailer of the show and said, "Warming up the sleigh and prepping the reindeer for our holiday extravaganza together! Arriving to your screens December 3rd on @appletvplus! 🎄✨☃️ #TheMagicContinues"

The trailer shows Mariah in an amazing gold dress, with a band and backing singers, belting out some classic Christmas songs.  

Over 800,000 of Mariah's fans liked the trailer of her new show, with some leaving excited comments like, "Mariah is back once again to save Christmas" and "I’m pretty sure that you will do something incredible this Christmas and we are waiting."

The quick snippet of the show also featured guest stars and fellow singers Khalid and Grammy-winning Kirk Franklin, while her twins Moroccan and Monroe, will also star in the show.

The star will also sing her new Christmas song Fall in Love at Christmas, and she'll be interviewed by Apple Music's Zane Lowe. However, last year's show featured other pop stars including Ariane Grande and Jennifer Hudson—so we're expecting an array of celebrities to make an appearance this year too.

Mariah, who last week teamed up with MacDonalds for their festive menu, released the classic All I Want For Christmas Is You in 1994 and it's since gone on to become a huge festive hit all over the world. The show is set to be released on Apple TV on December 3rd - so not long to wait before Mariah brings the Christmas cheer!
