Justin Bieber fans are thrilled today after hearing the news that the 17-year-old pop star will be guest starring on a remix of Mariah Carey's classic Christmas song, "All I Want For Christmas Is You". Carey took to Twitter to announce her latest collaboration, posting a video taken on the rooftop of her lavish Manhattan apartment. Check it out below:

First of all, whoa. In the immortal words of P. Diddy, Mariah, you on fiyah. Seriously, she looks amazing! Age and pregnancy have been very kind to Mrs. Nick Cannon. I love the body shots too-- work it, girl! She's obviously been hard at work in the gym after the birth of her twin babies this past April. It has definitely paid off!

As for the song, a lot of Mariah fans are protesting. They feel that "All I Want For Christmas Is You" is already an iconic song that will always sell well during the holiday season, and that it doesn't need a gimmick. I agree with this, but I also think that the Bieber collaboration is a good idea. I never understood why people get so annoyed about remixes of songs or remakes/sequels of movies. Just because they're making something new, doesn't take away or ruin the original. If you love the 1994 version of the song that much, then just stick with it and let other people enjoy what comes next. The great thing about this is that there are millions of insanely passionate Bieber fans that will now probably get on the Mariah Carey bandwagon. I bet some of them haven't even heard of the singer in their young lives, and maybe they will be interested in hearing more from her. It's really a win-win for all parties involved.

Though I'll probably end up sticking with the original, I'm excited to hear the new version as well. I can't really say I'm a Bieber fan, but watching some of his performances and videos with my young cousins has showed me that he is definitely talented. I think he could bring a new and fresh sound to this already great hit. The song will be featured on his Christmas album Under The Mistletoe, due out November 1.
