Kotb and Guthrie joined a bunch of celebrities in the music video created in honor of the 25th anniversary of Carey’s holiday classic, “All I Want for Christmas Is You,” as shown in a video uploaded to the singer’s YouTube channel.

Featuring a long list of celebrities lip-syncing along to the hit, this version begins with Tyler Perry jokingly mispronouncing Carey's name as he dedicates the video to her.

THREE VERSIONS

Carey's 8-year-old twins, Monroe and Moroccan, are also seen dancing to the hit Christmas classic.

Last year, Carey and her twins, Moroccan and Monroe, recorded themselves singing the song inside a vehicle, a special moment that the singer shared with her fans on Instagram.

On December 19, 2019, she posted a polished music video, which was a stark contrast to the original music video released several years ago.

Carey, who is noted for her five-octave vocal range, melismatic singing style, and signature use of the whistle register, earlier talked about the passage of time.

"It's so funny, somebody was just asking me, 'What were you doing 25 Christmases ago?' I would probably say somebody was giving me a bottle and they were singing me a sweet lullaby Christmas tune. Because I was just one year old, so I don't know!" she recalled in an interview with USA Today.

She added: "It's very much like I live in the land of the Tooth Fairy and Santa Claus. I don't acknowledge time, I don't know what it is. I rebuke it!"

Carey rose to prominence in 1990 after signing to Columbia Records and releasing her eponymous debut album.
