Performances: Mariah Carey Marvels In Morocco

Published: Saturday 26th May 2012 by Sam

After a lengthy spell away from the live circuit, diva Mariah Carey made a comeback of sorts at the Mawazine Festival in Morocco tonight.

The 42 year old dazzled the adorning crowd with a headlining set consisting of her biggest hits.

Watch Mimi soar below…

It’s Like That

Fantasy

Shake It Off

Underneath The Stars

Ol’ Mimi’s “banter”, while endearing, veered onto the irritating side of the fence. Still, it’s great to see her voice in better shape than it has been in recent years. Here’s hoping it’s this incarnation of her vocals which show up on her next studio album.

    They’s ARE NOT her greatest hits , where’s One Sweet Day and We Belong Together Heartbreaker and Honey?

    • MaZ May 26, 2012

      She also performed thoses hits. I saw her live on moroccan Tv. She was wearing a long red gown.

    • TIMMI May 27, 2012

      With the exception of “One Sweet Day” (which is a duet) she performed all of those songs you mentioned.

    This woman is a legend! I don’t care if her voice deteriorates over night, her success speaks for itself! Love MC! Respect her while she’s still with us, she is of a dying breed, a true diva!

    Wow. I have to say it’s glad to see at least ONE legend amongst since most of them are dead. Since I will never get to see whitney in concert like I wish I could have at least I hope to meet mariah one day in person cuz she seems like such an amazing person on the inside and outside.

    I would want to see her in concert but I feel like the strength of her voice is not there like it use to be which makes me hesitate. But maybe I’d still go anyway so I can brag to others I saw her live. Haha.

    Forgot to add the best parts of these clips sounded pre-recorded. Cuz she can’t rly belt that high anymore. But maybe I’m wrong.

  9. Bey Fan May 26, 2012

    Underneath the Stars is one of my fav songs…and my fav of Day dream….

    Mariah is legend and one of the greatest voices of ALL time….

  10. LiCari May 26, 2012

    I just NEED to see my Queen in concert ONE time before I die! That Underneath the Stars performance was EVERYTHING

  11. Theman May 26, 2012

    Clearly her voice is in great shape. She was belting. That “WBT” performance is her best ever. She had energy and she moved around. They clarity of her voice is great. The musicianship se has is secod to none. She belted out some really good notes here. She’s getting comfortable with all of her notes. Overall she did a great job. She was having fun to.

  12. Jayla May 27, 2012

    WOW i was very surprised to see her do “We Belong Together” 100% live, especially the ending, Her vocals are still on point, Bring on the new music!

  13. mokok-lee May 27, 2012

    So many incredible performances…I mean ‘WBT’ completely live…Killed it!!!

  14. bobby d May 27, 2012

    outstanding job MIMI!

  15. JohnVidal(RIP Whitney-truegreat) May 27, 2012

    Her voice is in such a great shape right now. The 3 performances TGJ posted are great, I need to search for more. And I have to say she was looking fabulous in that dress. You can feel she likes Morocco and hot wheather
    She also looked fabulous on the orange one when she arrived a couple of days ago and in the photo with Lenny Kravitz

      i’m here for ” it’s like that” and “fantasy” !!!

      morocco is great man 🙂 !
      and they love MC there , they still enjoy her songs like “my all” , “we belong together” !!

  16. JohnVidal(RIP Whitney-truegreat) May 27, 2012

    I also want to say… these are true songs, great ones, and a true songwriter. And she sings, doesn´t growl, you know what I mean, even if she obviously can´t do it like 15 years ago, your favs probably wish they could do what she does nowadays with her voice, not to mention what she did years ago and having her status

  17. Todd May 27, 2012

    Ok! She kicked it off so/so with tha Fantasy RMX ,but with the costume changes she got better and better and better,like she was just warmin up 🙂 There were some lipped parts,just a few,small ones and i dont care at all.What bothered me was loong breaks between costume changes and,in my opinion, she gotta gaet rid ot them remixes like the fantasy rmx, dreamlover rmx, love hangover,my all remix….
    Mimi,please make sure to have some fresh new hits to add to the list.PLEASE!Im a fan since ’93 and that setlist got me a bit bored 🙁
    Anyway ,love my girl and cant wait for new music!

  18. Geezy May 27, 2012

    I have to admit being a fan since 1990 I’ve seen all sides of Mimi vocally good and bad and after Austria I didn’t know what to expect. I gotta say I was pleasantly surprised in a good way at this point as the fans we need Mimi to be consistent in her live performances. But overall Mariah did a good job. She’s truly one of the last few of a dying breed a true diva, singer-songwriter.

  19. TIMMI May 27, 2012

    Mariah SLAYED!

    There is no room for debate with this performance. The lip-synced vocals sounded COMPLETELY different to the live vocals and I am proud to say she sang 95% of the concert completely live.

    She’s sounding on par with “Adventures of Mimi” tour back in ’06. I can not WAIT for new music.

  20. Todd May 27, 2012

    LOL, TGJ , it’s MawaZine , not MawaWine, and LOL X 100 at the magic number 42 that appeared once again in a mIMI POST 🙂

    • POP ROYALTY ( Révolution) May 27, 2012

      thank you for correcting it , موازين !!!!

  21. JohnVidal(RIP Whitney-truegreat) May 27, 2012

    Ok now I watched most of the performances (TGJ refuse to post) and they were all great. She was constantly improvising, her musicianship is crazy

  22. JER May 27, 2012

    im sorry but her vocals slayed. Besides that first lipped “Fantasy” intro BS. ‘Underneath the Stars’ slayed your faves entire f****** life

Although Mariah Carey‘s current predicament is anything but glorious, the singer remains one of the most remarkable artists of all-time. A status she achieved by way of big hits, as well as lesser known numbers too. The diva’s doomed single ‘Crybaby’ is this week’s From The Vault pick. After much debate with… Read More
