    Those tickets are going to be hard to get!! One concert only at Madison Square Garden, right?

    most likely.
    I have a feeling it will be taped and aired as a Christmas special.
    I also think there will be Big production and special guests.
    it's going to be a moment!


    Mariah also hinted at Christmas concerts in New York. So we may get some Beacon Theatre shows too

    Never too early to start thinking about the next AIWFCIY campaign, lol. I have several ideas.

    Assuming Billboard don’t change the rules - I think we can guarantee streaming points will be reasonably strong. Last year it was actually sales that let us down. We need to focus more on iTunes this year (i.e. a download day). Let’s get it to #1 on iTunes Charts.

    The 25th anniversary is also the perfect opportunity for Sony to release some limited edition bundles. Artists are doing this regularly now, so why not?

    Some ideas:

    - 25th anniversary vinyl single + digital download
    - 25th anniversary autographed vinyl single (limited edition) + digital download
    - 25th anniversary cassette single + digital download
    - AIWFCIY Christmas sweater + digital download
    - Christmas cards that play the song when opened + digital download

    Ideally these would be available for pre-order early December, then shipping Christmas week (I know people wouldn’t get them until after Christmas but I don’t care - we need the chart points to count for the Christmas week, lol)

    Apparently there’s also a movie coming out called Last Christmas (based around the song) which will give that song a major boost in sales and streams - it could be a real threat.

    chart week runs from Friday to Thursday

    This year, Christmas eve and Christmas day fall on Tuesday and Wednesday

    Assuming billboard rules don't change, this means a full week of Peak points and less drop, compared to last year.

    This year is the best chance of elusive 19th #1

    Music history will be rewritten when that happens!
    She was kind of fragile and she had a lot to grapple with but basically she kept it all inside ...

    I doubt there will be only one night at MSG unless she is also doing Vegas and/or Europe dates.

    Her Christmas tour is a huge success for her and there is no way she is only going to do one concert this year.

    You've got a point. I guess we have to wait and see.

    There might be more competition on the charts this holiday season compared to last as Adele, Rihanna and Beyonce are slated to release new albums sometime this year. We love everybody but Adele could really ruin the season for lambs

    With a full tracking week I think the song would go #1 regardless of the competition - keeping in mind the numbers from the 24 & the 25 last year.
    This year 25 is a Wednesday but the drop for the 26 isn't massive. Split is only 1 day (but it could make the difference).
    They should discount the song during the Xmas week this year tho to get those extra sales. Maybe they were waiting for this anniversary to do it
