Step Aside, Mariah Carey! Demi Lovato SLEIGHS SLAYS All I Want For Christmas Is You For The Obama Family!

| Filed under: Music MinutePolitikBarack ObamaDemi LovatoHolidaze

The last time we were this blown away by someone other than Mariah Carey singing this, it was that 10-year-old girl in Love, Actually who grew up to Marceline the Vampire Queen on Adventure Time!

So consider yourself in good effing company, Demi Lovato!

The X Factor judge just wrapped her first - and possibly final - season on the reality competition just this week, and now that she's done coaching up-and-comers on a full-time basis, she reminded us all why she was awarded the position in the first place with an absolutely STUNNING rendition of the MiMi holiday staple All I Want For Christmas Is You!

And all in honor of President Barack Obama and his FAMILY!

Ch-ch-check out the former Disney princess during Saturday night's Christmas in Washington Concert (above)!

We just ADORE that she was able to make such a well-known song all her own…and still sound flawless in the process!

There's really no comparing her voice to Mariah's, but in this case, that's okay!

Gah! We are just feeling TOO festive now!

Thanks for bringing the Christmas spirit HARD this year, gurl!

We're sure POTUS and company couldn't have been more thrilled!

    What? You think she sounds good? Are you for real? She is off-key almost the entire time, is singing too low, and sounds awful… especially when being compared to the incomparable Mariah. Not even close, not even for a brief moment.



  2. 2

    I liked it

    Re: harry – yeah mariah can sing better that even if she has cold or drunk in her heyday…… but nice try little girl.



  4. 4

    It was good but I love Mariahs. I think she did a good job though.

    Re: harry – Of course it's no comparison to Mariah's, but off key? She sung in key the entire time… I swear some people just use phrases they have no idea about.

    Beautiful job!



  7. 7

    She was awesome. I didn't know a lot about her before X Factor but she seem like a really cool person. =)

    her voice is terrible and Ive yet to hear her sing live without being offkey! she's fat and average at best. Then theres that psychotic smile of hers..

    LOL at these haters. I've seen her live quite a few times and she's flawless each time.
    She was sick and she sang this FLAWLESSLY. She's not fat, you slags. She's actually really really tiny in person. Fuck off!

    She fat and made up like a chola whore. Words.

    Headline Should Read: "Mariah carey wasn't available/was too expensive/didn't care enough to grace them with her presence, Demi Lovato sang "all I want for chrstimas instead, video below"….it's not that this girl can't sing, she can….she's just really not that good in this case, which I know is unfair because after all…it's mariah carey we're comparing her to.



  12. 12

    I'M SHOCKED….she took off all that ridiculous make-up she usually has caked on thick….

    Very well done Demi….



  13. 13

    Wow, put a decent song in her hands and she's good. Why didn't she do this starting 10 years ago.

  14. Shiny says – reply to this

    Um she was lip syncing…

    You people are sick calling her fat! Seriously this article is about her singing and if you didn't like her take on the song then just say you didn't like it there's absolutely no need to talk about her appearance! Especially since she's suffered from an eating disorder and comments like that could make her purge again and have another breakdown, well maybe you'd like that because you'd feel big because you played a part in someone's downward spiral. Anyway I think shes sounded better but did a good job regardless. Love Demi, always have, always will <3

    Sorry, it doesn't compare to Mariah in any which way. Stop overpraising her, Perez. I've never been a huge fan of her voice and there were too many vocal runs for my taste. Trust me, she only stayed relevant with the rehab scandal and that catastrophe that was the X Factor season 2 where she was a despicable mentor and butchered her own contestants. She should've just retired from the entertainment industry once the scandals kept coming.

    Re: Rita – I am a music major and she was off-key for almost the entirety of the first verse. She sounded better as the song went on, but still not great. I actually think she usually has a pretty great voice (and love "give your heart a break"), but this was not impressive in any way.

    She killed it! I love her!



  19. 19

    unrefined



  20. 20

    I don't want her to read this and feel bad and i think she's lovely but I don't think she's a good singer. too much vibrato.. not enough practice. She could use a singing coach



  21. 21

    Re: charliechaplin@ – Don't worry she won't



  22. 22

    Great job! Can't compare to Mariah's. Bc ther are different but Demi held her own

    Re: Lasqueesha – shut the fuck she's beautiful and you must be retarded to think she's fat.

    i just want to know why she wears black in almost everything she does. i mean cmon we know you have depression but if you wear bright colors it will help with your mood. study's have shown this.

    Could not play the video for some reason, typed in SKIP to skip the ad, and my PC just hung up. I do like Mariah and am just not that familiar with Demi, so no comment on this story.

    STEP ASIDE? for what, a lip sync, so-so/decent cover of Mariah's classic?? how dare you….
    perez, if this impresses you then
    YOU STEP ASIDE AND SIT DOWN!!

    Uh Oh! Mariah Carey has too many haters and journalists are at the top of the list. In fact journalists kill real talents. They put Michael and Whitney down when they were alive and suddenly started praising them when they died. What I want them to know is that we are very lucky to be in the same era as Mariah Carey, who is a gift from God. I don't hate Demi but she is not in the same league with Mariah. Get a life and stop being jealous of Mariah!

    I've watched her sing live before. DEFINITELY lip syncing!

    Re: Lasqueesha – You're probably a Rebecca black fan. Either that or you like some shit like Miley Cyrus. Whatever the case is, please kill yourself for your stupidity.

    Re: Jacquelyn – This wasnt recorded you dumb ass. There was never a pre recorded track of her singing this. Please educate yourself you idiot.

    Re: D-LOC – this wasn't lip synching you idiot. There is no pre recorded track and a hone can tell that listening to this it was a live rendition. Please go backmtomyour whore mom and tell that bitch that she owes me a blow job.

    Re: charliechaplin@ – You absolutely make no sense in your post. Honestly reading some of the pseudo intellectual crap from these morons is just so entertaining lol. Take your uneducated ass back to public school bitch. Your high school musica
    Education only gets you so far.

    Feel sorry for half the people in here.Is your so utterly meaningless that you enjoy talking shit about other people? She is not fat and its kind of ironic because most of the people calling her such are probably fat fucks themselves.Also to the people claiming that they know stuff about music and are calling this terrible,I hear they do hearing tests for free now so yeah,you should check that out.Overall she has a great voice,whether you like to admit it or not and don't call her fat because she probably weighs half of what you way and you're just embarassing yourself.

    She didn't slay it, she murdered it. This is awful. I've seen kids on American Idol who could have done better.

    I don't even like Mariah Carey but her original is untouchable.



  39. 39

    Eli. you think Shannon`s storry is incredible, last thursday I bought themselves a Smart ForTwo from bringing in $5369 this munth an would you believe 10k last-munth. with-out any doubt it's the most comfortable job Ive ever had. I actually started 7-months ago and practically straight away was bringin home more than $69, per/hr. I follow the details here,,



  40. 40

    You are all incredibly mean, fuck off. How is this not great to you? Her voice is beautiful. I'd love to hear you guys sing, you probably couldn't even begin to touch what her voice can do. That and she's a gorgeous girl. You guys all need to grow the hell up and get off this website, your holier than thou attitude has clearly gotten you nowhere if you spend time being assholes on here

    Re: harry – mr. Music Einstein, I hope you realize this is live,in front of the President of the United States, and she wasn't in her usual register (she's an alto/close mezzo-soprano and Mariah is an easy soprano, the fact that she even hit any of most of the high notes that Mariah did is crazy impressive). She was on key the majority of the timeand who isn't off-key in live performances. Find me someone and I'll give you a cookie.

    Re: Christy – too many vocal runs. Are you fucking serious? Mariah carey would do atleast 50 vocal runs if she was singing Happy Birthday. Be serious. Another thing is, she was a horrible mentor yet, Britney's contestant got sent home BY BRITNEY HERSELF, but had to come back to X Factor because Britney fucked up. Britney gives her contestants the most predictable songs ever and the slowest songs at that (when they were 13-16 year old) and all of them were sent home. Britney has 10+ years of exp. Simon said the artist Tori Kelly who has not been signed to the same label that Rihanna, Justin Bieber and many other successful singers have been signed too, had an annoying voice. Look her up. Plus, he owns the show…and has two very successful acts that have branched off from X Factor. Has who knows how many years of exp in judging and in producing. LA reid hated his group the second he found out, but started to like them once he realized they were high in rankings. Gave Vino Alan a horrible song to sing which resulted in him being eliminated the same week. La owns half of hollywood and has 10 + years of exp.

    Re: Christy – Demi has 5 years of exp, 1 of which she was in rehab for diseases your daughter/sister/mother/brother/cousin/nephew/ may be suffering with right now, but are to afraid to tell you about because you'll judge them, and actually look up to her because she's an example that things can get better. I guess what I'm trying to say is…fuck off and have some fucking respect you inconsiderate bitch

    Re: Taylor – out of everything, the only thing you can say constructively is that she wears too much black…are you for real? Gtfo, NOW.

    Last but not least, all the fucktards calling Demi fat, LOL. She's gorgeous, look at her recent photos of her in the Bahamas, I mean DAMN. You're obvs mad that she's gorgeous and you are thee absolute opposite. Get life, get job, get some, Idc, just get the fuck out. #Lovatic4Life -someone with perfect pitch, a music composition major, who isn't perfect, judgemental, or a bitch
