It's the happiest time of the year, readers, and we welcome you to this week's extra-special, super-good installment of Framed! Like everyone, we're looking forward to Christmas, and we're celebrating by bringing two of our favorite stars, Mariah Carey and Justin Bieber, to our Yuletide blog.
Incredibly, we had Mariah in Framed this time last year, with exactly the same song! This year, though, she upped the stakes by recording a new version with Justin... and, heck, everyone knows he appears in our blog every couple of minutes.
So we thought, "What the hell. As if our readers can even remember last week."
We kid you! Our tune, "All I Want For Christmas Is You" is fast becoming a modern holiday standard, and adding JB to the mix has only made it better. He's like MSG or something.
So light the fire, pour the eggnog, and call the family 'round the monitor to enjoy yet another Christmas with Framed. We, and all of your friends here at Y! Music, wish you the merriest Christmas ever. We'll be off next week, but come back in two weeks for our extra-special year-end blog!

4 -- "And Daltrey's better than ever! I love you, Santa!"
5 -- "Oh, dear. I accidentally gave Barney the Stones' tickets! And he wasn't even naughty!"
6 -- Invoking Odin and all the old gods meant nothing to the Grammy nominating committee this holiday season!
7 -- "Has Framed used up all their 'gay apparel' Christmas jokes this year?"
8 -- "I can simply take this, of course, because I'm rich."
9 -- Justin's ability to seize and distort space itself may have practical applications!
10 -- "It has an app that corrects The App That Corrects History? Things are moving fast!"
