1. mariah carey's live/acoustic version of I'll Be There with trey lorenz is MTV Unplugged's first single to hit number 1 in the billboard hot 100.

2. mariah carey - merry christmas is the biggest selling christmas album of all time.

3. this year with her 18th number 1 single, Touch My Body, mariah surpassed elvis presley for the second most #1 singles in history. 3 more hits and she's gonna beat The Beatles at the number 1 spot.
