Don’t call it a comeback, “it’s” been here for years!
Yesterday Mariah Carey‘s performance of ‘Shake It Off’ didn’t quite satisfy the naysayers who didn’t buy ‘MCIIY’ falsely believe the diva’s iconic vocals are nothing more than a distant memory of yesteryear’s prime.
However, it’s safe to say that her recent performances of ‘I’ll Be There’ and ‘Always Be My Baby’ have led her “Lambs” to the promise land of reassurance in their favorite singer’s set of golden pipes.
Watch the mother of two remind doubters why she’s considered ‘The Voice’ on the other side of the same coin shared with Whitney Houston after the jump.

Universal Pictures are gearing up for the release their big budget action flick ‘Battleship’. And so as to further whet apetites, the studio have released a new promotional poster featuring actress/model Rihanna – who plays the role of Officer Raike in the movie.
Word has is that her role, like her talent, is limited. However, smart business is seeing producers push her to the promotional forefront to ensure a box office hit.
Ever keen on keeping the masses abreast of fresh and often underrated talent, That Grape Juice presents ‘The Spill’ – a renewed look at not-so-new, yet active, acts. Much like its ‘Freshly Squeezed’ sister segment, this assay aims to put the magnifying glass on talents who may not appeal to the buying public on a broad scale yet are still serving material that could easily spin side-by-side with some of today’s top hits.
Covering a kaleidoscope of genres, ‘The Spill’ is set to feature some names you probably know and love as well as some you’ll (soon) be glad to know.
Our sophomore entry comes from none other than Karina Pasian. This Grammy-winning native New Yorker has been earning kudos for her musical know-how before she even earned her driver’s license. Classically trained pianist before her first kiss and sought after by major labels before prom, the now 20-year-old beauty first gained buzz for her 2008 debut album ‘First Love’ featuring the fan favorite ‘Slow Motion’ (featured below).
Since then, the songstress has mainly been maximizing her exposure via social media outlets. Winning praise for her vocal displays (showcased regularly on her Youtube channel PasianEntertainment) and her head-bobbing collaborations (including Brandy remake ‘BrokenHearted’ with R&B crooner Sammie), Miss Pasian is set to take a leap back into the limelight by her lonesome with the December 2011-released ‘Trip To Venus EP’.
Beforehand, press play on ‘Slow Motion’ below:
Already winning rave reviews from critics for her latest effort, find more on Pasian and her forthcoming musical ventures after the jump (via ThisisRNB):
