Carey posted a video of herself and her seven-year-old twins, Morrocan and Monroe (Roc and Roe), listening to the famous song and singing all the backup parts…and it’s adorable.
Roc & Roe have been practicing the background vocals to "All I Want For Christmas Is You", we're gonna take this one step at a time – we're very excited about it! It's our first video doing this! It's festive, Cmon!! 🎄🎶🎄🎶💖 pic.twitter.com/ddlzCtwT3d

Imagine Mariah Carey is your mom and you get to sing backup vocals with her live on her Christmas classic. These two don't have to.

But people couldn’t help but notice one problem with this video.
