Does Ariana Grande sing 'All I Want for Christmas Is You' better than Mariah Carey?

While “All I Want for Christmas Is You” will be played almost nonstop for the next few weeks—which is not necessarily a bad thing—is it time for Mariah Carey to let a new generation take on the Christmas hit?

It might be, if Ariana Grande’s recent performance of the song is any indication.

Ariana Grande releases upbeat Christmas track 'Santa Tell Me'

Ariana Grande completed an important step in reaching pop diva status Monday when she released an instantly memorable Christmas single, “Santa Tell Me.”

This isn’t Grande’s first foray into Christmas songs: Last year, she released a holiday EP titled Christmas Kisses that featured two original songs, “Snow in California,” a straight-from-the-’90s ballad, and “Love Is Everything,” an optimistic song heavy on the belting. But while those two songs are more the type you’d listen to while decorating the tree, “Santa Tell Me” is a poppy track perfect for playing during holiday festivities—or for blasting in your car.

Ariana Grande somehow sneaks a club jam onto the 'Mockingjay' soundtrack

First, Lorde releases a cover of Bright Eyes’ “Ladder Song,” and now, on a very different note, Ariana Grande has added a dance track to the Hunger Games: Mockingjay—Part 1 soundtrack.

The song, titled “All My Love” pairs Grande with Major Lazer for an upbeat song that doesn’t quite fit with the tempo of the rest of what’s been released from the Mockingjay soundtrack. Unless Katniss finds herself in a dance club at any point, there’s a good chance this song could be more of a credits-sequence deal. Then again, who said District 13 doesn’t know how to party? Oh, that’s right—everyone.

Ariana Grande reveals impressive rap skills by covering Nicki Minaj's verse of 'Bang Bang'

Nicki Minaj wasn’t at the BBC Radio 1 Teen Awards Sunday night to help Ariana Grande out in her performance of “Bang Bang,” so Grande took matters into her own hands and capably rapped Minaj’s verse herself.

Grande, Minaj, and Jessie J released “Bang Bang” in July, and the track soon became one of the most popular of the summer, peaking at No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100. A music video featuring the three dancing in various locales debuted in August, and the trio opened this year’s MTV Video Music Awards with a performance of the song. READ FULL STORY

Right after Nicki Minaj, Jessie J, and Ariana Grande opened Sunday’s MTV Video Music Awards with a performance of “Bang Bang,” MTV premiered the trio’s wardrobe malfunction-free video for the song online.

The video begins with men ogling at Jessie J as she exits a car, but she pays it no mind and enlists female onlookers to join her in showing off their Cadillac-like booties. Meanwhile, Grande twirls around in a Miami-chic bedroom, applies makeup, and belts into a megaphone—A-plus on the multitasking, Grande.

The VMAs opening number with Ariana Grande, Nicki Minaj, Jessie J and more: What did you think?

How many rhinestones were on Ariana Grande’s Barbarella-call-girl onesie?  How bouncy is her ponytail? How freaked out was the PA who had to man the censor button during Nicki Minaj’s NC-17 celebration of snakes and a special kind of salad?

These and many more questions came to us during an opening medley that featured Grande performing “Break Free” direct from space (kind of), Nicki Minaj not using her previously scheduled reptile muses during the Sir Mix-a-Lot-sampling “Anaconda,”  and Jessie J looking sane and moderately amused during “Bang Bang,” while Grande strutted in yet another future onesie and Minaj clutched at her decency when a wardrobe quick-change wasn’t quick enough.

But you tell us, readers, what did you think of the VMAs opener?
