When news broke of Kelly Rowland being chosen to tribute Mariah Carey at last night’s BET Honors, fans and critics alike had plenty to say.
However, amidst the expected debate, there’s one person who Rowland’s performance was of particular importance to – Mariah herself.
The songbird hand-picked the ‘Motivation’ singer to perform her 1995 classic ‘Fantasy’. And while the masses will have to wait until February 13th to see how the Destiny’s Child alum fared, 41 year old Mimi has given her two cents on how Ms. Kelly held up.
Her comments after the jump…
Writing on Twitter, Carey said:
@KELLYROWLAND Dear Kelly, thank you so much for the a+++mazing tribute at the BET honors last night. @KELLYROWLAND I can’t wait for your fans to see how great you were. You’ve no idea how much I appreciate you. x0x0
…and there, my friends, you have it.
Tune in to the BET honors on February 13th at 9pm
