Watch: Mariah Carey Performs ‘Triumphant’ At NFL Kickoff 2012

mariah carey triumphant that grape juice e1343998290108 Watch: Mariah Carey Performs Triumphant At NFL Kickoff 2012

With Mariah Carey‘s comeback single ‘Triumphant’ sitting outside of the iTunes 200, the singer’s high-profile performance at tonight’s NFL Kickoff was perhaps the last chance of salvaging the so-so received track.

Unfortunately, for ol’ Mimi her big moment turned into a vocal obituary.

See what we mean below…

*Pours out liquor for the voice that was*

Much respect to Mariah for her past achievements and her unshakable spot in the history books as one of the greatest voices of all-time. However, that made for a shocking watch – and an even worse listen.

When not being swallowed whole by the backing vocalists (which – like the recorded version – appears deliberate), Mariah sounded she’d been gargling gravel. Elsewhere, she  both looked and sounded wickedly winded.

********

At this point, Mariah needs ask herself whether all the effort going in to making her sound half-decent on record only to sound like the Cookie Monster live is actually worth it? The Lambs may lap it up like green grass, but the general public don’t. Indeed, as at writing, Mariah is trending on Twitter — for all the wrong reasons.

Beyond her upcoming Idol stint, Mimi’s experience, success, and writing ability could (and perhaps should) see her rebrand as a mentor/songwriter for the new breed of stars. Because her voice increasingly seems like it should be referred to in the past tense.

Your thoughts?

    You Sound sound as jaded as the drag queen who wrote this. Mariah Carey is one of the greatest vocalist of all time. Who needs a MANAGER. Randy Jackson allowed this MESS to happen, he can’t even choose a diet plan or wardrobe. Mariah Carey needs to grow the hell up. Throw on a gown or hot short skirt like she did in those MTV promos for E=MC2 and sing her ass off.

    What is the problem with this chick? She has the voice you can still hear it, but this was poorly organized. BALLADS like Thanks for nothing, Standing O, I wish you well, Mine again….YOU CAN DO IT MIMI

    I thought your precious MeMe did all her OWN songwriting and producing and everything else? the cow has been spewing how wonderful she thinks she is and about this horrid song for a year-and everyone knew it was going to suck-but it really stinks. She can barely show up in public without getting sued by Jenny Craig-she’s huge and can barely even move for fear some fat role will drop out from under the layers of spanx she is wearing-what’s with doing most of her LIVE appearance in a video-it only made her look more old and fat when she came out on stage in person to put all that doctored video up -she has always been hideous-she was on the charts 20 years ago because Tommy Motola and Sony bought her way there-plus there was no napster and huge music companies controlled the market-isn’t that why she married a man in his 40′s at 19? in a competitive music market were people can hear and choose freely she is a complete failure-she has always been just a bunch of rancid fake posing hot air-finally good riddance and now she will take Idol down with her screeching banshee arse like some kind of hideous sea monster-someone needs to put a Godzilla costume on her and she can do that horrid screeching thing she does-very scary and hilarious god knows she is big enough to pull it off-MeMe made Queen Latifa look very slim

    I don’t care if this is just a buzz single, if she’s going to perform it live, she better make sure she does it justice.

    I would rather have had her perform Triumphant (Pulse Mix) with some good looking dancers. That would’ve been great… but no.

    well 1st the vocal were ok lets keep in mind she sang 3 other songs before they went live with triumphant, the vocals were there it just seemed like there alot of sound problems her mike kept goin in and out and it seemed to busy meek mill in one place rick ross in a throne over somewhere else and mariah on the jumbo tron most of the time then she comes out surrounded by screaming fans in her face , so she could really barely hear herself she even looked overwhelmed at how everything was staged and executed but those whiselte notes at the end were on poin and it seemed like for her big solo the mike was messing up… i dont doubt mariah still has the voice there are many youtube vidoes tof mariah in the bathroom or in the studio singin to proove her voice is still intact but i think the song is not one to be performed live and as a major major marih carey fan i think the song should have never been released as a single because its more like shes a feat on her own song……..aand ithink thats why the fans and radio arent really warming up to the song because she not front and center….no this should have been single for meek or ross on there cds to build buzz for her return her real single should have been a power ballad that displays why now that mamma whitney is gone Mariah is the VOICE and why after all these years shes still in the game triumphant should have just been some obscure song on her next abum that u liked but never could really see as a hit single

She has done great live show performance before IE: We belong together remix, so this is no excuse for her. She needs to step her game up. She is a living legend and should set the example of what a SINGER and performer is. I love MC but this performance here SMH

    I don’t think it’s about a lack of practice. The vocal damage is obvious and excessive practicing would probably only make it worse. If the damage is not permanent vocal rest is probably what she needs.

    It was a bad performance. It happens to all artists. That doesn’t mean her career is over.

    She’s been in the game for 22 years, so, of course, she will not sound as great as she did in 1990. Sounds to me like people have unrealistic expectations.

    MC Replied:

    @mr.m Your right Xtina is the best….the best SCREAMER. “3 albums, 3 eras, 3 HAS-BEEN STAMPS, 3 + infinity flops ..”
    The three albums you are talking about are:

    Emancipation of Mimi = 5-6 x platinum in the U.S. (14 million or more around the world), 2 #1 singles, 3 Grammys. –> Success

    E=MC^2 = Platinum in the U.S., 1 #1 single, etc (if this is a flop then so is Xtina’s “Back to Basics” because it is also certified platinum) —-> Success

    Memoirs of an Imperfect Angle = 600 K (Gold in the U.S.), 1 top 10 hit (obsessed – platinum)

    Mariah Carey’s 2nd Christmas album = Gold and a successful single (“OH Santa”)

    What about Xtina? Have we forgotten that “Bionic” flopped so hard that it has yet to reach gold status in the U.S.? Did you know that MC 2nd Christmas album sold more than that? MC has been in the game for 22 years and yet her “has been ass” sold more…with a Christmas album….I can’t….have a seat boo and stay mad :)

    MaginaMonroe Replied:

    When it comes to relevancy, Christina is more relevant than Mariah, Becuase she has outsold her in THIS PAST DECADE! and TEOM did not sell 14 million, 10 million at most, since the only country it slayed in was the US.It was just moderately successful in the rest of the world.NO WHERE near as big as her early 90s releases

    MC Replied:

    @MaginaMonro First of all Christina is not more relevant than Mariah as they both have been out of the game from 2009/2010 and the one reason why Xtina is relevant again was because of “The Voice” Mariah must be relevant as 100 + people checked this article. Also why would AL pay MC $18 mil/year while Xtina only gets paid $10mil/year at most. And the EOM did sell 14 million world wide, I checked. Mariah not only outsold Xtina in the past decade, but also this decade with EOM, E=mc^2 sold the same amount in the U.S. as Cristina’s “Back to Basics” and finally Mariah’s last two albums (MOIA & Chritmas album) both sold more than Xtina’s Bionic so… you argument is flawed and based on incorrect facts.

    But Back to Basics had FAR BIGGER sales than E=MC2 had WW. and it didnt even have a number 1 hit.! B2B tour also grossed more than Mariahs last 3 tours combined according billboard tour box ofice! E=MC2 3 million WW, B2B 5 million WW!

    Mariah we belong together single = 5million Emancipation is 12 million if u add all mariahs singles and albums in past decade its about 28 million … christinas is about 26million all combined meaning mariah sold more then xtina

    @MaginaMonroe

    but who cares who sold more really as mariah legacy talent wise performance wise over her whole career kills xtinas and thats fact even though i LOVE them both and got all their cds and seen em both in concert 3 times..

    xtina grew up listening to mariah and wouldnt be the vocalist today if it want for MC thats real talk

    MC Replied:

    E=MC^2 was certified platinum in the U.S. as is Back to basics. E=mc^2 was a #1 album and had 1#1 single (Touch my body) I have no idea where you are getting your numbers/info from, because they are wrong.

    I don’t understand how Mimi lost her voice or most of it to the point where you forgot she had a 5 octave vocal range. She never tours/toured or sings live that much so HTF?

    Regardless of Mariah Carey’s Triumphant flop & her major vocal declined, she’ll always be 1 of the best vocalists & selling artists ever!!!!! This performance Mariah just gave was decent by HER standards but still shits on most of the singers out of the last 7 years live vocal performance but pull it together Mimi.

    She doesn’t tour that much she only did a few and not with all her albums, you want to see high est grossing tours without Mimi on the list because she doesn’t tour much Worldwide, I have all those things you are talking about that’s why I’m here commenting on what I see and what most sees and noticed, I was not being disrespectful to her or her music or to anyone, I’m commenting on what is real and what we can all see and hear, she used to have a 5 octave vocal range, this is a easy song to sing and she strained for the most part! you might have a legacy but they say you remembered as your last hit and performance and her last single which was her official 1st single until it did not even chart became a ‘buzz’ if she has nothing to prove why is she still making music! She has s*** to prove she is making music so that she can make more hits and because she wants to! Lambs need to stop making excuses… She’s not even a ‘performer’ dancer or stage mover for her to sing like this.. She once had a great 5 octave voice, she used to have a great voice and this performance which is her last show in what condition it is, not past performances… This is the present and her voice is the past but she needs to get it together! Because she can’t sing really and always looks like she struggles to sing a simple line in a song, she can still whistle though but that’s it..

    Christina Aguilera is a EPIC FAIL. The b**** started out with the 1st cd, spainsh cd and Stripped and had the makings of an ICON, then her voice started to sound harsh and her screams harsher…..Aint no witch-craft in the world that can save her career. She’s dumpy, dirty, lost her swagger and style.

    She better sing BEAUTIFUL at the Ms World event and sit the hell in that seat

    Omg yess at this review. I’m a lamb, and I feel hella frustrated at Mimi and the handling of this project do far. A so so single released 7-8 months before her album and way before her idol stint which would’ve otherwise allowed her the exposure to make her comeback as/more successful than j-lo’s. I just feel disappointed as hell

    Idol is about to start in 2-3 weeks! She should pace her album out. What do you want? For her to release singles two days before the album drops? And J-lo’s album “Love?” flopped, hard…

    The bottom line is Mariah is a legend and she has a timeless body of work that will always be revered. She has every right to continue singing despite the obvious vocal damage she has suffered but it is hard to watch someone of her caliber give such vocally diminished performances. I would prefer to listen to her old recordings. Mariah has nothing left to prove. I think her legacy would be better represented if she would stop struggling through performances and devote her time to other areas where she can still excell. But it’s her choice, she is getting paid and can do whatever she wants no matter how embarrasing it seems like it would be I guess it doesn’t bother her.

    Mariah’s midrange is still good; it’s just her upper belts are becoming scratchy. She can still pull her old voice off (see the remixes) but more often than not, her vocal nodules WILL be inflamed, and WILL make her singing scratchy.
    As for gravel…. I wouldn’t go that far. She just sounds strained and harsh. At least she isn’t pitchy like some artists out there, or flat like some of her contemporaries.

    Mariah’s voice is most definitely not the same, but it isn’t due to drugs. It is the constant singing, tours, etc she did NON-STOP the whole 90s and some more after 2005. That really wares the voice off and she has been singing professionally for over 22 years…

Ppl are never gonna appreciate mariah until she’s gone and its sad shes the one of the most influential singers of our time and y’all still treat her like crap!! At this point in mariahs life its not about hitting the right note or trying to impress someone and prove ppl I can still sing because she can even on her bad day she sounds way better than I ever could! Her presence alone should be respected and if y’all actually look up the background for the song you should know why she would want to perform it and smiling while singing it!

    I don’t understand why everyone is surprised Mariah has sounded like this for years that’s why she always uses a backing track and never sings 100% live.
    The difference with her vocal decline and Whitney’s was that Whitney learned how to work with her new voice Mariah obviously hasn’t and she needs to learn soon if she continues to record and use studio tricks to enhance her vocals then fail to deliver live.

    Mariah has become such an embarassment..

    She releases the WRONG single 7 months before her album drops, releases the typical video in 6 inch heels and a dress short enough to see her ass cheeks and then does performances like this one. This era is off to a HORRIBLE start, and she needs to fire Randy Jackson IMMEDIATELY.

    How much longer does she think she can keep this kind of nonsense up? This phony persona that she has been putting on for years, and even the lambs are getting fed up with it. No one even supported Triumphant, and it was the wrong time to release such a song.

    I’m not even excited about Mariah’s stint on Idol, and I don’t even think that would save her material. I think the general public are so over Mariah, with this fake charade of her’s.

    I’m not gonna lay a red carpet down for her just because I’m a fan.

    She gets points in my book for not copping out and for being brave enough to sing a live vocal, even if it still isn’t enough for some people. I would much rather hear what’s in this video instead of her lip syncing. And I love the fact that after all these years she’s STILL writing her own lyrics. That shows passion and integrity. If I can say anything negative about this performance, it’s that her dancers were very distracting and unnecessary.

    I am a LAMB for life and I stand by my girl MIMI everyday. It kills me that haters on this sight disrespect POP royalty and a legend as Ms. MC with his hate and shade. As already mentioned shouldn’t it be enough that MC is still performing and a legend after over 20 years. No this was not her best performance of the night.. mind you she had performed 3 songs prior to and the concept of the whole “Fashionably late” was lost in all the glitz and screaming etc and there were clearly microphone/audio issues with RICK Ross audio etc.MC definitely did not sound like she ate gravel, yes she was hoarse near the end (before her flawless triple whistle) but that is because she had been singing LIVE the entire night.

    Is her stamina as it was 15 years ago. Of course not, what professional singer who has sang LIVE for 20 years sounds the same 20 years later NO ONE. MC is a vocalist as in she uses her voice as her instrument and like all of us we age over time (it’s called imperfection) and people have always had unreasonable expectations for MC . It was live so sometimes depending on many factors your voice is tired, the weather, hormones etc cause your voice to vary by the day.

    In terms of the studio tricks BS. Any musician knows that when you perform LIVE you are not in control of many factors ie sound, wind, etc, it was outside when you sing for an album it is a complete controlled setting where you can stop, rest take a break, re sing etc. Sing today then sing 3 days later if you want, these are things that cannot happen LIVE. So for you haters the fact that you heard imperfections prove that she sang LIVE. When MC has stunning performances she is accused of lipping She can’t win for losing for some of you. The age discrimination against MC and women in this industry is absurd and needs to stop. MC has nothing to prove and if she has not another #1 hit again, she is still better, greater and superior than your faves and puts half of the crap performers out there right now to SHAME. So as MC said stay pressed, fall back . dont ever let em count you out, reach for the stars and STAY TRIUMPHANT !!

    Mariah Carey is a Lagendary because she had 18 #1 Singles only behind the Beatles & Elvis Presley and no one can even close! and she is the Biggest Selling Female Artist Of All Time selling more than 250 million Record world wide and is people’s favorite punchbag. If she does a ballad and belts they’ll say she’s overdoing it. if she releases a cute pop song, they’ll say she’s a has-been. if she’a s***, they’ll say she needs to tone it down cause she’s 42 and if she does hip-hop people say they want the ‘old’ Mariah back. If she lipsynchs, they’ll tear her down like other singers? never do it, if she sings live and is in great vocal shape, they’ll say she’s lipsynching. Same bull**** since 1997
    and yet she’s still here! Still Relevant still beautiful she still #1 and still make a comeback! Chart doesn’t matter it the music she does and what she love especially for the fans which she call THE LAMBZ cuz she already had all of ‘em!! because we are Unparalleled and We Stay Triumphant for MIMI!!!

    Actually that is Barbra Streisand.
    Here is the list:
    1. Barbara Streisand
    2. Madonna
    3. Mariah
    4. Whitney
    5. Celine.
    The reason why people call Mariah best selling female artist of all time is because the time frame that it took her to sell that many albums. Mariah accomplished this during the 90s early 2000s what took her counterparts to do in 20 years or more.

    They are all big seller, but Madonna accomplished this feat in 30 years what took Mariah 22 years….

    But in all actually the biggest selling female artist of all time is actually Babara Streisand.

    JohnVidal(RIP Whitney-truegreat) Replied:

    @MC
    I´m just saying but I really don´t think Barbra Streisand is the biggest female seller of all time. She has never sold the amunt of albums Mariah, Madonna, Whitney and Celine have sold worldwide, it´s impossible. her success was more focused in the USA, like Aretha for example. If u mean only in the USA then it could be, I don´t know
    Plus I think Celine is over Whitney in USA sales
    But like I said I´m just saying cos I did see the list on Billboard website ages ago

    MC Replied:

    @JohnVidal(RIP Whitney-truegreat)
    I get it, it can be confusing at times. Barbara Streisand wasn’t a big seller world wide, but she has been in the music world for 49 years, almost 50 years…..so she did sell a lot of albums. And also Whitney sold more that Celine, even though Celine has more albums.

    It was obviously not good, but I don’t think it was as bad as some of you are making it out to be. And I’m not even a Mariah fan/ stan. It was a subpar performance, but I wouldn’t call it horrible. It’s not like she got any time to sing anyway, it was mostly the rappers performing…

    I don’t get why peeps be saying its a hot mess to start with ?!
    This performance shoulda been posted in HQ. Mariah, queen of technically perfected music needs HQ not some shack blurry s***.

    Would have killed to be at this show! Always be My Baby and Touch my Body were my favourite performances from what i’ve seen on youtube.

    I love Mariah Carey, I think she has the best musical catalogue for all female artist and one of the greatest singers of all time. BUT! This is just a mess. We might be looking at the end of her career, just like what we saw a few years ago with Whitney. Remember how Whitney’s performances were just terrible and she hardly could even speak anymore. Well, I think Mariah is about to go threw that! Hopefully she wont drop dead or be killed! She needs to just retire and enjoy being a living legend. Not everyone has the stamina of MADONNA Or TINA TURNER! Mariah Carey was never a performer even when she had that golden voice. Mariah either needs to update her wardrob, voice and songs. OR! Retire. She has 18 number 1′s, 200 million albums sold and the most successful female song writter/producer in history. She also, still owns her soul. Maybe thats the reason for her not being great anymore she didn’t sell her soul yet,,,, oh Welll. Mariah Carey you are a legend and I will always love you.

    Doesn’t staying true to yourself mean anything tho, especially in the mess that is the music industry ?? I mean, ppl have always accused Mariah of being a fake, yet she’s stayed the truest, been through hell and public hate, back to love, then to ‘whatever’, yet she’s still doing what she loves, writing and singing. I think getting compared to Madonna and Whitney is the problem, Mariah is more of a Paul Mccartney or a Paul Simon, and farther from performers like Madge, or Whitney/Celine who sing material they’ve been given. She’s rocking out her own style and sound, if some people don’t like it, and wish she’d do a RiRi type song to “stay current” that’s not where she’s at or what her goals seem to be. besides. what are hater’s hating, she sings like a rapper, dresses like an old hollywood starlet and acts like your best friend. It’s her being her.

    Mariah needs to be in HQ:

    To those saying Mariah has nothing to prove. stop that b*******. If she has nothing to prove then she should retire and let her legacy take full effect over generations. When you come out giving the public that mess the newer generation will not even respect your talent and efforts of the past. for example madonna. She has messed up. I am not saying that they are not legandary but i PERSONALLY DON’T RESPECT MADONNA like I did before and if mariah continues messing up then I don’t know. My family has even bashed her, we really love her but she is messing up big time and the interest is no longer there. Yes her music will live on but we have lots of talents new genernations coming up.
    Michael Jackson forever gave his all. He was 50 and still did all he can. He had accomplished his lifetime award and diamond award and still got up and gave the world his all. Some artist just sell a little milli and you think that they have nothing to prove?
    As a singer talent isbeing able to showcase your voice, not in the studio but live. and nowadays when artist take the stage, you then get to know their real talent. Mariah has lost me. she cannot sing live like people make it to be. Her tone is unique and her upper register have her at an advantage but apart form that. NOTHING. SORRY GUYS

    bottom line – whoever told mariah that was a strong single to lead a new album campaign with should and probably has already been fired.
    performance was a mess, switching between live and track didnt help matters either…

    Every time Mariah f**** up with a shitty song like “Triumphant” or gives a shitty performance like at the NFL kickoff, her IDIOT fans wanna start responding to the criticisms by reminding people how long she’s been around, how many number one songs she has and blah-blah-blah.

    WHO GIVES A f***?

    This ain’t 1990 and that s*** she’s peddling now ain’t “Vision of Love.” If the best you can do is cling to tired Jeopardy facts whenever someone calls this b**** out for something she’s doing TODAY that’s wack, then seriously you need to shut the f*** up because I’m not impressed. I don’t care how many centuries she’s been around…I don’t care about how many hits she has…I don’t care about how many records she’s sold. What’s matters TODAY is what she’s doing TODAY. This is 2012, and “Triumphant” is what she’s trying to get people to buy TODAY…and based on what I’m seeing, it looks like no one is.

    LOVE IT!! GET’EM MIMI! :-)

    *** And this is coming from someone who is not a fan or stan!***

    Now pay close attention kiddies because Mariah Carey is singing LIVE LEAD VOCALS over a BACKTRACK! Lets not be a hater against YOUNG, BLACK ,AND MALE lets make sure we dicuss the EVILS of singing over a backtrack when it comes to a Diva like MC too! Or better yet, lets just drop the BS all together!

    Go MC! I really disliked this song at 1st but it has really grown on me.

    PorkRIAH WhaleFlubbERY career is over.her fans always living in the 90s when she used to slay! No one is denying that she WAS one of the greatest vocalist , and NO ONE is denying her success! but we are living in the NOW….where she has clearly become IRRELEVANT.Triumphant not getting into the HOT 100? her album being pushed back, all her singles from Memoirs under performing! and now this HORRIBLE vocal performance. she needs to stop embarrassing herself, QUEEN OF VOCALS Beyonce, could outsing her bitterly in her present vocals state! and Piglett RIAH needs to fix that nappy ass weave too! Whale looking b****!

    This Kimberly person should shut her trap!! Mariah is still putting out records because she loves music she has money lots of it to last 5 generations and like I said she has nothing to prove her prime has passed what more do u expect?! You either like her or not either way with or without you she’s gonna do what she wants to do and that’s music and we as her lambs accepts all of mariah including her flaws ppl like u want her to be perfect ALL the time!!! She’s human I’m pretty sure with whatever u do in life your not perfect at it either!! So u come on here and give your pointless two cents on a singer who got through both her success and struggles WITHOUT YOU!! Say what u want about mariah performances but she sounds better than half of these ppl in this f***** up industry. The only person mariah has to prove herself to is MARIAH and she’s done that multiple times already!! She’s made her own lane and ppl try to get in but can’t!

    I honestly do not think Mariah had lost her voice. The problem is the material. She sounds like a background singer on her own track. damnshame

    I actually didn’t think it was that bad. There were some obvious lipsynched parts but on the parts she belted she sounded good. And if you watch the other 3 songs she did before Triumphant, she sounded really good as she did in NYC earlier this year, Morocco, Monte Carlo, etc. You can’t say her voice is dead because of a performance of a so-so song. The original Triumphant just isn’t a good song or really her song.

    Ok I´m late but I´m finally at home
    - Sam is just a pressed hater. OMG what an exageration he just made. Ridiculous
    - I know this was not flawless but any person with common sense should know this song is too much to be sung live in a stellar way. Even the two rappers didn´t sound too good. The song is too fast and it´s really difficult to sing live. I can´t think of any singer at the moment doing it justice. It´s too complicated. It´s a studio song. It´s obvious. BTW I love the song
    - I´m going to stick to the positive: She Looked FABULOUS to be honest. I need to watch a second time but she is HOT right now. And I love dthe entrance. At first I was like “Where the hell is Mariah???” haha but then it was great
    - Now I´m going to search for the other performances of the night
    -Oh and is Sam that pressed that he forgot No Doubt were going to perform???

    “R&B superstar Mariah Carey surprised the crowd at a New York City jazz club on Wednesday (05Sep12) by putting on an impromptu show.

    The Fantasy hitmaker was in the Big Apple for her televised NFL Kickoff appearance, during which she sang new track “Triumphant” to launch the American football season. However, she wasn’t ready to hang up her microphone after the performance – she later visited Manhattan’s famous Cafe Carlyle and belted out her favourite jazz songs while sharing a bench with the club’s pianist.”

    A true musician. Her voice is perfect for jazz

    She threw it down, the passion and energy she gave made up for anything haters are staying about quality of her tone. She sang her ass off and gave the emotion that the song demands. Mariah’s voice is delicate, she knows that and we know that, it’s what makes her voice interesting and give it that texture.

    KILLER HAIR !!!
