And I adored her from that moment on and idolized her." - Christina Aguilera "I think ['Vision Of Love'] was a vision of the future world of American Idol." - Rich Juzwiak, Slant

I'd love her version to become more popular. It's been done by so so many people though. No disrespect to Guy Lombardo..I love his version. It was the first popular recorded version and each year he performed it on NYE. His is still the version played as the ball drops. Mariah's is a nice modern twist. Yes it's campy and cheesy but fits the party vibe of NYE and still has the slow traditional intro. I'd love a new tradition to be formed by her performing it each year on New Year's Rockin Eve.
As soon as the ball dropped last night, somebody at the party I was at yelled "play the Mariah Auld Lang Syne video!" Everyone was living their best life. And then we watched a Mariah Christmas special and a bunch of Mariah videos. Queen of New Years.
