“We can’t wait to see [Mariah Carey] SLEIGH her Billboard Music Awards performance and receive the Billboard Chart Achievement Award for ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’,” the official Billboard Music Awards account posted on social media.

Released as the lead single from Carey’s fourth studio album, Merry Christmas, “All I Want for Christmas Is You” first came out on October 29, 1994. In fact, the song holds the record for the longest gap between being released and reaching number one in both the United States and United Kingdom.

“All I Want for Christmas Is You” has altogether sold 16 million copies worldwide, earning Carey an estimated $72 million. It is currently ranked number one on Billboard’s Greatest Of All Time Holiday 100 Songs.
