Those tik tok embedded videos don’t seem to want to load for me :(

And isn't this her first original UK #1 (the other two I know are "Without You" and "Against All Odds")?

Yep! First original. So deserved.
Tiktoks don’t work for me either @SDF

Shaking and crying

It makes me feel bad that when I was once asked whether I would rather have another Mariah #1 hit or a Brexit trade deal, I chose the former, but when we stan a Queen, we stan a Queen.

The full segment featuring white cis straight men screwing up their faces at Mariah's sublime riffs and runs was... just as I thought. Trash.

Thankfully the girls in cheap fake bake were stanning.

Why do I feel that there is a high correlation between gammon rates and "I can't stand 'er" views on Mariah Carey in the UK?

I mean, how can you not shake and cry over that Sleigh Ride sequence? It's giving you Fantasy but make it socially distanced.

I imagine a lot of the wankers who fail to find the joy in AIWFCIY are people who prefer Fairytale Of New York. And look how a lot of those turned out.

Surely we should have a new banner to celebrate this moment

I remember when some queens on this forum used to say that Mariah didn't have any classics. LOL. She has THE classic of the modern era.

Xmas #1 isn’t this coming week right, it’s next week? Not sure how it works when Christmas Day is on the same day as the charts

Yes, we have a chart on Christmas Day. I assume the #1 will be revealed on TOTP.

Don't click this link unless you want to see spoilers

oh YAY!

I'm used to the lineup being shit - it's become tradition to moan about it. But it wouldn't be the same if it wasn't on in the background as you eat your chocolates/roasties (depending on what time it's on)

I hate that they keep shoving it earlier. It was always the perfect thing for Christmas dinner background.

Queen! :disco:

I wonder if they'll introduce new rules in USA to prevent her being number one every year. I'm sure they'll do something in UK sooner or later.
