Mariah Carey's new Christmas album, ABC special

Being pregnant is not slowing Mariah Carey down.

The singer released her latest album on Tuesday just in time for the holidays, and ABC announced she will star in her own holiday special.

Entertainment Weekly reports that Carey has dropped a follow-up to her very successful 1994 “Merry Christmas” album. “Merry Christmas II You” contains re-recordings of some of the earlier tunes plus some new tracks.

According to an ABC press release, the network will air a music special, “Mariah Carey: Merry Christmas to You,” on December 13.  Carey will sing seasonal favorites and, “In the spirit of giving, the program will also feature Carey surprising some very special fans and helping to make their wishes come true.”

    I thought it was awful, the background dancers were clumsy, fumbling all over the place. I know she's pregnant but her costume just didn't fit well and she didn't look good. And what's with the constant touching her ear mic? Every few minutes one of her hands was up in her ear. All-in-all very disappointing.

    OMG! I enjoyed Mariah's christmas program to tears. No other person/lady/artist in the entire world can sing like she can. Her spirit is calm and pleasing and her voice is unbelievable... I'm going to the store tomorrow and buy the christmas cd. Mariah, please continue to brighten the earth with your talents and make christmas as happy as you did for my soul and family tonight. Thank you!!

    Sky, dear, please stop. I'm pretty sure you're making yourself feel all warm and fuzzy inside by trashing some random celebrity on the internet under the guise of a religous rant, but stop. Oh, and if you feel the need to post another pointless comment, cool it with the caps. I agree with Jason, by the way. She is a really good person. And the revealing clothes issue, well, lets go back to the very first book of the Bible, shall we? Hmm.. Oh, yeah, God created man NUDE and man, after eating the fruit, clothed himself. But if you still feel like arguing, go right ahead.

    Sky,

    I told no lie. She herself has stated that it's like dressing up when asked about some of her outfits. She's a girly girl. You are correct that her clothes are often revealing. Every person in the showbiz world wears revealing clothes. Why pick on her? Have you no control? Is that the issue? Are you afraid that you might have an improper thought in appreciating the womans beauty? C'mon. She's a good person with a kind and huge heart. There aren't many like her left in this very secular world who are famous. From 20 years ago, many of the songs she wrote and sang were about God. That's what sustains her and that's why people are still listening to her music.

    FACT: THE FIRST LIE YOU TOLD WAS" MARIAH CAREY MAY LIKE TO "PLAY DRESS".
    THIS IS A LIE. HER CLOTHES ARE VERY VERY REVEALING MOST OF THE TIME.
    LET JUST TELL THE TRUTH.
    WHAT IF I GAVE YOU A CLEAN GLASS OF WATER TO DRINK, BUT PUT IN ONE DROP
    OF POISEN WOULD YOU DRINK IT, OF COURSE NOT....THEN WHY ASK GOD?
    GOD IS HOLY....HE SETS THE STANDARDS....I ONLY ACCEPT THEM AND
    RELATE THEM....I WILL CALL YOU OUT IF YOU CLAIM TO BE A CHRISTIAN
    EVEN IF YOU ARE RICH AND CAN SING, GOD STANDARDS ARE FOR ALL.

    Sky,

    I'm very sorry but your insane. Mariah Carey may like to play dress up but she doesn't crucify herself on stage like someone like Madonna. Mariah Carey is one of the kindest, sweetest, and sincere persons in the world of superstardom. She loves and adores kids. She is pregnant now and some of the articles you would (hopefully) consider beautiful b/c she only decided to embark upon pregnancy b/c she is married. She never would have done it as a single person but doesn't judge others nonetheless. What in God's name and holy creation is yur problem? If you listened to the song One Child, you might thank God that someone from the secular world appreciates, adores, and pays reverance to God. You call yourself Christian but you seem to want to be a judge. Look in the mirror at your own face and stop worrying about others.
    P.S. Go to google and type in Mariah Carey Gay Wedding Proposal. When your watching, you may want to ponder on the following. Find me a gay man or lesbian who seeks to have a child (regardless of the means) and than terminates the life of the one they are so desperate to parent. Maybe that's why God is smiling in Heavan along with a tear falling to Earth as he realizes that some of the UNWANTED children in this world will now have a fighting chance at LIFE and LOVE. You don't know what love is b/c your more intersted in judging everyone. You should be utterly ashamed and embarrassed to call yourself Christian.

    P.S.S. I hope you never ate Lobster or bottom dwelling seafood b/c if you did your gonna burn in HELL. After all, it's in the bible. Seriously, STOP picking and choosing the words. Instead, open your heart and recognize the difference between those who love God (even if they live differently than you) versus those who seemingly want to spew vicious false prentious hatred into the world (seemingly like you as well.) You should listen to the song I Wish You Well by Mariah Carey, or My Saving Grace, or Fly Like a Bird, etc... The girl is OF GOD. Maybe you will be one da too. You have no right to judge others. Again, look in the mirror. Take a good long hard look and BEG for HIS forgiveness as you seem to feel privaledged enough to do HIS job.

    I SAW A CHRISTMAS SHOW ON TV, AND TURNED IT OFF, MOST OF THE GREAT
    SINGER WHO WERE SINGING "HOLY, SACRED, SONGS", WERE NOT EVEN TRYING
    TO LIVE A MORAL LIFE....YES THERE ARE DIFFERENT TYPES OF CHRISTIANS,
    AND THE LAST TIME I CHECKED BIBLE READING CHRISTIANS WHO WANT US
    TO FOLLOWER THEIR STANDARD OF WHAT IS RIGHT AND WRONG.

    There are different types of Christians. Mariah WROTE a song called ONE CHILD on the new album. It's a musical masterpiece but more importantly, it's holy, sacred, and very powerful. She very much knows the true meaning of Christmas even though she makes festive music as well.

    AFTER SINGING THE CHRISTMAS SONGS, THEN THEY SING "TOUGH MY BODY"
    TODAY WE AS REAL CHRISTIANS ARE ONLY SAYING, IT IS NOT RIGHT.

    Alright, alright. People calm down. -Pours water in the growing religous flames.- Ahem. I don't really care for Mariah, but if she wants to go and sing Christmas carols, she can go ahead. At least it isn't "Touch My Body". Sheesh. Besides, arguing over the internet is like the Special Olympics... You win, but you're still.... Well, you fill in the blank.

    FACT: THE LAST TIME I CHECK WAS TODAY AND IT SAYS" I DESIRE THE WOMEN TO ADORN THEMSELVES
    IN WELL ARRANGE DRESS. WITH MODESTY AND SOUNDNESS OF MIND, IN A WAY THAT BEFITS WOMEN
    "PROFESSING TO REVERENCE GOD, THROUGH GOOD WORK.....WHAT GREATER WORK COULD THERE
    BE CHRISTIANS THAN SINGING HOLY SONGS ABOUT JESUS ?
    WE HAVE GOT TO WAKE UP..GOD SETS THE STANDARDS, NOT SINGERS AND ESPECIALLY "LAST TIME I
    CHECKED THE BIBLE CHRISTIANS". NO MORE LIES....WE MUST SPEAK THE TRUTH.
