Mariah Carey - Mariah Carey Tops First U.s. Christmas Hits Chart Of 2013

Mariah Carey's 1994 hit All I Want For Christmas Is You has topped Billboard's first Holiday 100 chart of the year, as it did last year (12).

The song, which Carey performed at the 81st annual Christmas in Rockefeller Center tree-lighting ceremony on Wednesday (04Dec13), hit the number one spot with 29,000 downloads and big airplay figures.

Brenda Lee's 1958 classic Rocking Around the Christmas Tree comes in at two and Bobby Helms' Jingle Bell Rock is at three on the first U.S. festive chart of the year.

Ariana Grande claims the chart's top holiday song released this season with Love Is Everything at number 15, while her cover of Wham!'s Last Christmas is at 32. The original takes the 11th spot on the countdown.

Meanwhile, on the U.S. Christmas albums chart, Duck Dynasty stars the Robertsons' Duck the Halls: A Robertson Family Christmas ranks number one, just ahead of Kelly Clarkson's holiday compilation Wrapped in Red.

Mary J. Blige's new album A Mary Christmas is at three, Michael Buble's 2011 release Christmas is at four and Susan Boyle's Home for Christmas rounds out the new top five.
