Mariah Carey is getting into full diva mode for Christmas: She’s the first act announced for next month’s VH1 Divas Holiday: Unsilent Night concert special.

The singer, whose All I Want For Christmas is one of the most listened-to holiday songs of all time, will perform at the event to be taped on December 2 at the Kings Theatre in New York.

The TV special will air on VH1 on December 5.

Additional performers will be announced at a later date.

The event will mark the third time Mariah has performed at a VH1 Divas event, which is returning after a four-year break.
