Mariah Carey All I Want for Christmas on Jimmy Fallon


Backstage at Jimmy Fallon's show, Jimmy convinced Mariah Carey and The Roots to perform Mariah's classic hit "All I Want For Christmas Is You." The catch? The only instruments they could use were those found in any gradeschool music room. Of course Mariah sounds fantastic even if they only used the kazoos to back her up. Here are the instruments they used:

Jimmy Fallon - wood block, tambourine, bass drum, kazoo
Mariah Carey - vocals
Questlove - wooden clacker w/ afro pick
Mark Kelley - Fisher Price xylophone
Kamal Gray - recorder
James Poyser - melodica
Captain Kirk - ukulele
Tuba Gooding Jr. - kazoo
Frank Knuckles - bongos
Black Thought - sleigh bells

The chorus consists of four children who pop in and out of view. It's an adorable video. Take a look:
