Mariah set to perform on the Billboard Music Awards | mcarchives.com
Queen of Christmas Mariah Carey will take the Billboard Music Awards stage for a festive, Aspen-inspired performance of "All I Want for Christmas Is You", which will mark the first time the holiday perennial has been performed on an awards show. Legendary choreographer Debbie Allen will oversee creative direction of the sequence.

Carey will be honored with the Billboard Chart Achievement Award for the holiday classic, which has climbed to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 every year since 2019. It has thus far spent 12 weeks at No. 1 on Billboard's flagship chart, becoming one of three Carey hits to log 10 or more weeks in the top spot. It joins "One Sweet Day", a collab with Boyz II Men which spent a then-record 16 weeks at No. 1 in 1995-96 and "We Belong Together", which spent 14 weeks on top in 2005.

Carey holds many Hot 100 records. She has had 19 No. 1 hits, the most of any solo artist. She is the artist with the most weeks at No. 1 (91). She is the female songwriter with the most No. 1 hits (18). She is the only artist to reach No. 1 with her first five singles - "Vision of Love", "Love Takes Time", "Someday", "I Don't Wanna Cry" and "Emotions".

In addition, Carey has made her mark on many other charts. She is the artist with the most weeks at No. 1 on the Radio Songs chart (91). She has had 18 top 10 albums on the Billboard 200, including six No. 1 albums (Mariah Carey, Music Box, Daydream, Butterfly, The Emancipation of Mimi and E=MC2).
