    Holiday Classic

    Not long ago, he was mostly known as the guy who cracked up during sketches on Saturday Night Live, but these days, you can catch talk show host Jimmy Fallon producing some of the best musical content around. Whether he’s teaming up with Justin Timberlake for the “History of Rap,” or rocking out to “Sexy and I Know It,” with The Boss himself, Bruce Springsteen, Fallon has revitalized NBC’s “Late Night” thanks in part to the endless number of entertaining and unique musical collaborations.

    With the holiday season in full swing, booking a guest like Mariah Carey is a no-brainer, but with Fallon and The Roots at the helm, fans of the hit tune, “All I Want For Christmas Is You,” were treated to a delightfully fresh rendition of the timeless classic.

    Since the release of Carey’s 1994 album, “Merry Christmas,” which featured the ever-popular song, a number of different versions have been produced by a wide range of artists. Check out the videos below, featuring some of our favorite “All I Want For Christmas Is You” covers.
