Was Mariah Carey Actually Singing On The 'Christmas In Rockefeller Center' Special?

Below is a video of Mariah Carey "singing" her XXXmas jam "Oh Santa" on the Christmas In Rockefeller Center special that aired on NBC last night (watch Kylie Minogue, Susan Boyle, Jackie Evancho and Annie Lennox here).

At first I had my doubts that Mimi was actually doing this song live, but upon another viewing it seems she was maybe at least doing a bit of ad-libbing over a tape. Either way, she opened the show and it was still a fun, energetic spectacle.

What do you think? Was the Original Chart Rigger pulling a fast one by mouthing the words to her Merry Christmas II You tune?

    Judging from this fan video, I'm certain she didn't sing any of it. Or at least, her mic was kept too low to hear any of her wailing... Can she even hit those whistle-register notes anymore?

    Wonder if Mimi's mom Patricia - who appears on the new Christmas album - was the one doing the actual whistle register notes? Oooh, conspiracy...

    Wouldn't be surprised if Mariahhh was forcing her mother to do her bidding. The poor woman looked so confused during their QVC performance, I don't think she knew she was being filmed.
