It's the first time that the trio have performed the song live together since its release three years ago.

Mariah first recorded 'Oh Santa!' for her album, 'Merry Christmas II You', in 2010. She then teamed up with Ariana and Jennifer in 2020 for a new version of the Christmas single.

They performed the track as part of "Mariah Carey's Magical Christmas Special' which aired on Apple TV+. 

The song was also featured on the special's soundtrack of the same name. Mariah was thrilled to finally have her "Christmas angels" sing 'Oh Santa!' with her live at the weekend. 

"Grateful to have the gorgeous and talented, the Christmas angels @arianagrande @iamjhud, join me on stage tonight @thegarden for our song 'Oh Santa! (Remix)'," the 54-year-old wrote on Instagram.
