A video of Joe Biden supporters celebrating the president-elect’s victory by singing Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas Is You” has spread on Twitter and has been seen over seven million times.
Democrats across the U.S. celebrated the victory with dances in the streets over the weekend when it became known that Biden had beaten incumbent President Donald Trump in the 2020 election.
Dozens of Biden supporters gathered at a gas station on Los Feliz Boulevard, Los Angeles, at a party hosted by comedians and writers Addie Weyrich and Demi Adejuyigbe to celebrate the victory on Saturday.
Videos from the event show the fans – most of them wearing face masks – dancing to music played from a huge speaker on the roof of a car.
Twitter user Adrienne shared the now viral video with Twitter and said “This was the first time I heard this song in 2020 and it was absolutely the best possible opportunity. At the time of writing, the video was liked almost 100,000 times and shared more than 20,000 times.
Mariah Carey herself shared the video and said, “It was the best occasion: “I saw it last night during our own celebratory moments! If you watch it and share the feelings of joy and happiness with all of you! Let’s remember to be sure so that we can truly celebrate the FASTEST Christmas yet”.

The video was widely distributed on Twitter, including by other celebrities such as actress Elizabeth Banks, who shared the video and said: “National Anthem until January 20,” while singer Sara Bareilles merely subtitled the video: “Sweet Joy.
While Biden’s theme was “All I Want For Christmas Is You”, Biden’s supporters had another song for Trump in mind.
Another video from the event, posted by Adrienne, sees participants singing to Kelly Clarkson’s breakup song “Since U Been Gone”, which is aimed at Trump, with Adrienne subtitling the video: “This song really hits the spot.
In this video, which was viewed 1.6 million times at the time of writing this article, the Biden followers passionately sing the lyrics: “But since you left / I can breathe for the first time / I keep moving like this, yes, yes / Thanks to you / Now I’m getting what I want / Since you left.
“You had your chance, you missed it / Out of sight, out of mind / Keep your mouth shut, I just can’t accept it / On and on and on and on and on and on and on”.
