    I love Mariah, but she doesn’t have any stage presence. It’s quite sad that she lost her voice as well. She still sings better than many hot singers of the moment, but she isn’t so good as she used to be. Anyway, I like the way she interacts to the public.

    I don’t think she has lost it I think it’s more so her technique as well as she used to sing from her soul but now it’s like she doesn’t even care and I am one of her biggest fans but I can only speak my truth.

    It’s really true. You can tell in clips like Without You where she’s belting live that she still has an amazing voice and range. She’s raspy yes but she still has IT. Some of the notes she lips (and with the sound difference it was so obvious on some of the songs) she can and does hit live in other songs, she just needs the confidence to do so or just switch them around. She doesn’t have to hit the same exact note that’s on the album version! Her technique is really flawed and a voice lesson or two wouldn’t hurt her.

    i’m GLAD she made her comback performances in an Arabic country. i’m loving that direction she and gaga ” debuting her most anticipated TOUR in ASIA” are taking , visiting other countries of the world beside US , UK , etc …..

    you won’t get better than the arabic crowd. they are not used to see MC everyday and they will appreciate what she do , they won’t be criticize every breath she take like in other countries.

    Loved the performances :) ! but “we belong together” , “without you” and ‘hero” >>>>>

    yeah yeah yeah i saw them all , it is a ‘so fuckin’ old” song ” have some arabic words and for a 4 Y.O kid that is a hard task ” me myself i couldn’t talk and say words in arabic with such complexity ! ya mustafa ya mustafa !! ” mustafa is an arabic name btw’ !!

    she’s cool ! i loved that !! :) ! and she actually , for a foreign woman like her , said and pronounced it so good !! the way she ‘pronounced ” mustafa >>>>>>>>>>> U go MC !!

    i was so impressed ! :)

    i know divas like her ” and madonna” know a lot about arabic culture !

    anyway , she is so nice :)

    The real huge divas are not ignorant Pop! (not shading anyone…lol) That´s another side I like from them
    For example Celine´s husband is Lebanese (or has roots) and they married following Lebanese rite too (excuses if my English is not good with this, u already know)
    The 4 biggest are the biggest for a reason hun :)

    ps: It´s weird that I also knew that song Mariah sang before TMB. Don´t know why but I know it

    it is just a CLASSIC song ! a lot of people like it’s rhythm and it is such a catchy old song !!! some people ” usually old people” in European countries will know it cuz when egypt was colonized by UK , UK soldiers used to go to egyptians bars and those kind of songs were popular at those places so they knew them and transferred it to other countries ” like greece , Italy” in particular cuz EGYPT was like the meeting point ” and the song is a about a sailor in the navy” !! and sailors liked it and used to sing it a LOT so …. u know the rest !!
    here is Non-arabic people sing it with such a Cool accent :)

    you might heard of it ! but i really was so damn surprised of the way she pronounced those arabic words , cuz arabic is such a hard language ! talk about having such a great determination since she was a kid !

    also yes , Big divas always amaze me when it comes their knowledge about music , that’s why i always say music has no religion , no sex , no language and of course no boundaries ” see the above video” !! also ” madonna” used some arabic song by a Lebanese singer called “fairuz” in “erotica” !! they usually sing arabic songs for a change cuz arabic songs are always about notes and ranges !!! so for someone like MC , this is like her fav game :lol:

    and NVM about english , i’m TGJ’s worst commenter when it comes to english. maybe because my native language is so much richer than english and that transition is kinda hard for me, so no worries paul , we are in that s*** together :lol: , but you do express your thoughts better tho. ;)

    and i personally think arabic songs get catchy by the end of the first listen ! i recommend listening to dailda songs cuz she had that ” international cultural fusion” going on the strongest iMO ” let alone shakira” . she’s my fav off the old divas :)

    there are like 4 versions of this song alone ” egyptian arabic , German , french and Italian” ! they are that catchy i’m telling you !! :)
    so now i know MC has such a strong musical knowledge ;)

    SHE KILLED ILL BE THERE!!!!! GOT MY LIFE FROM ALL THAT CHURCH AND PLAYING AROUND WITH THE VOCALS…HAVING FUN WITH SINGING IS WHAT IT IS ALL ABOUT. It is not about perfect vocals or a perfect robotic performance. It is about just having fun and being human with music. Human meaning, we are not perfect.

    i think her old songs were better suited to her voice then, which was more free.her voice now isnt what it was when she made these songs so obviously she will sing them differently (they will be more challenging to her ‘new voice’) thats not to say she cant sAAANG. her new material will probably show off her new strengths

    you do not see mariah for live hype entertainment. you see mariah to hear her sing. and this night she showcased her new voice very well. not everyone is beyonce and needs to f** out 24/7. mariah is 42 and a singer. i find mariah pretty silly and refreshing to see her smile and have fun with it.

    it’s her ad libs that shows me she is a beast when truly not focusing on the image. Imagine mariah in her comfort zone, amongst friends just singing at home having fun. OMG she sings! its not about being better than another artist. it’s about loving singers, and she is one of them. People should stop being so shallow and leave the hate at home. Admire the artist for their gifts. MC, Beyonce, Whitney(RIP), etc these girls SANG. Stop trying to make one better than the other. Enjoy the artistry.

    I’m one of Mariah’s biggest supporters, but that setlist has to go. She’s been performing those same songs for years now, and I think it’s time to switch it up and dig further into her catalog. She has some fantastic material that she never performs live, and I don’t think its fair to the fans.

    Her catalog is too great to be limiting herself like this.

    I agree whole heartedly but when she’s performing at festival shows like this she needs to do the hits that the casual fan knows. I would love to hear Circles, Vanishing, Outside, Fly Like A Bird, I Am Free, Breakdown, etc. At least she’s singing Underneath The Stars for the first time since 1996. She needs to bring back Vision Of Love for real but she’ll always have to do classics like Hero, We Belong Together, Always Be My Baby, etc. Obsessed, Touch My Body, Shake It Off can go….

    She has been singing Fly Like a Bird since 2005 till 2010 in every single concert. And she has included Underneath the Stars for the first time since 1996 in these last two concerts.
    But yeah I know what u mean, she should do it more

    Mariah doesn’t have any stage presence. I don’t mean she should dance or shake her boobs. She doesn’t need to do that. But I genuinely felt really bored after watching the clips. Vocally she’s just a shadow of what she once was and we all accept that. She had a child, she has aged, and all of that affects her voice. (Props to her for not lipsynching!) I felt she just lost that spark she once had. She just doesn’t have any stage presence.

    That said, I would still listen to Mariah over the trash on the radio today. But when you look at Whitney, even at her worst, even when her vocals are off, she still manages to put on a great show and have the whole audience dance, laugh & cry with her. Til the day she died she still had that stage presence. I love Whitney and Mariah dearly. Work on that stage presence. She still have much to offer.

Mariah is the s*** legends are made of and every year she’s in the company of fewer and fewer legends. Mariah is THE LAST Legend. Your faves never could do what Mimi has done.

    I LOVED I’ll Be There, We Belong Together, and Without You the best!! At first I was a little worried to hear Mariah’s 2012 vocals for such a massive vocal like Without You esp compared to the her 90s performances but I have realized that although she is no longer as technically proficient in her lower areas (who is after 20 yrs) she still has IT in spades! Great performance from Mariah!!

    Mariah is just brilliant. Her voice has gotten better in other aspects, her head voice is better than ever & so is her whistle regiser. She is one of a kind and amazing. She does things with her voice now that she didn’t before. Her standard is so high that all you can do is compare her to herself. he woman is brilliant & that is that.

    She’s doing well. Is the voice nwhat it used to be? no. But is it getting the job done? YES.

    BTW, It sounded like she lipped the last chorus of WBT. That chorus used to take a lot out of her back n 2005 too.

    nahh it was live. Rough but live. Notice the last night. With all the technical issues that night, the only thing lipped was the “Fantasy” intro obviously they pressed play lol. I’m impressed by Mariah’s vocals. She may be hit and miss but hell after all these years her hit is AMAZING and her miss is better than most faves best day

    Id Rather here a 2012 Whitney Houston Pre-Death Live than pay 50 cent to see this dill pickle f*** up some of the greatest songs she ever recorded… I remember I used to love this woman… But I think Mariah has gotten lazy and doesn’t even wanna try anymore… she’s been singing since 1990 and her stage presence is as awful now as it was day one… Whitney at least had drugs as an excuse for her sounding a mess, and hell the first few concerts she did in 09′ to create comeback buzz were a 100% better than this!!! Mariah needs a vocal coach badly, but more than anything she needs the will to sing again… Or she could just pre-record the entire concert… She’s been lipping it since 92′ any damn way, why change it now?

    The haters of course will be in full force. “WBT” the last note was better than the recorded version. There was nothing rough about that. She did an incredible job. She has showed vast improvements as far as being a performer goes. She isn’t a visual artist. Her focal point is her astonishing vocals/artistry. That other stuff is frivolous.

    Wow, wtf was up with the stage equipment??? The ear pieces and mics messing up were ruining the show. Mariah had a nice tone and hit most of the notes right on, but she was missing that amazing dynamics! She didn’t blow like how she used to years ago. Also, she’s very engaging and handled the ear piece mishap like a pro, but wtf happened to her stage presence and energy? Back in the day she was moving around, blowing, and had so many background singers onstage with her.
