Mariah Carey received a frosty reception upon setting sail on the Asian leg of her new tour, The Elusive Chanteuse Show earlier this month.

For, despite bringing her heavy catalogue of hits along for the ride, her voice just couldn’t carry them - croaking and cracking at multiple points.

However, as reported, the diva appears to be whipping her chords back into shape and is garnering better press because of it. And while we’ve been wondering what she’s been doing to tune her instrument, she shared her secret on Instagram today – posting a clip clearly aimed at her critics.

Watch Mimi’s vocal warm-ups after the jump…

Call It A Comeback? Mariah Carey Continues To Improve On Tour

mariah carey tour 2 thatgrapejuice 600x320 Call It A Comeback? Mariah Carey Continues To Improve On Tour

Earlier this month, Mariah Carey made headlines for all the wrong reasons when she set sail on the Asian leg of her new tour, ‘The Elusive Chanteuse Show’. Indeed, everything from the band, the audience, and Mimi’s elaborate gowns turned up…the only problem is that her voice didn’t.

It seems, though, that the diva is making steady progress on the trek.

For, her latest show in Tiajin, China has seen her famed vocals sound more akin to those that her fans, Lambs, and all in-between have come to know and love over the years.

Watch: Mariah Carey Hits Better Notes On Asian Tour

mariah carey tour thatgrapejuice Watch: Mariah Carey Hits Better Notes On Asian Tour

It’s fair to say Mariah Carey‘s vocals have been majorly elusive on her new tour ‘The Elusive Chanteuse Show’.

Yet, as the diva has shown time in and out, she’s not one to be counted out. For, she’s often just one move away from redemption or emancipation, if you will.

Such was the case during the trek’s stop in Tiajin, China yesterday. Because, when tasked with belting hits such as ‘Always Be My Baby’, the songbird sounded…better. Much…better.

See what we mean below…

Granted the video quality was jarring, the performance itself was respectable. It goes to show that with a measured effort to maintain her “new voice”, Mimi can sound solid.

More of this, please.

Weigh In: Not One Album Released This Year Has Gone Platinum

Top Three Selling Albums of The Year Were All Released In 2013

thatgrapejuice collage Weigh In:  Not One Album Released This Year Has Gone Platinum

The year’s fourth quarter is being greeted with dismal news:  not one single album released this year has been certified platinum.

Indeed, despite at least 60 songs shifting over 1 million copies, their parent albums cannot proclaim such.  We thought things were bad last year when only five albums went platinum, led by Justin Timberlake‘s ’20/20 Experience’ (which had sold over 2 million copies by last year’s closing).  But, this year’s looking to be much worse.

To add insult to injury, 2014’s best selling album by a solo act is Beyonce‘s self titled fifth album…which was released in December 2013.

We’re waiting on Rihanna, Eminem, Nicki Minaj, and Taylor Swift to save the day.

They may have succeeded in turning Iggy Azalea into a household with moves made for the single ‘Fancy‘, but it’s pretty apparent Def Jam weren’t as successful when tasked with promoting Mariah Carey‘s latest studio album ‘Me. I Am Mariah…The Elusive Chanteuse.’

For, for one reason or another, the album failed to fly once it hit stores earlier this year, seeing the singer left with her lowest selling album of her career.

Now, the CEO of her label has weighed in on the release, revealing just why he feels the project did what it did.

Nick Cannon is renown for serving up the funny. However, events in his personal life have been anything but laugh-worthy in recent months.

Indeed, it was confirmed earlier this Summer that the actor, host and media mogul had split with wife of six years Mariah Carey.
