Mariah Carey Peforms On This Morning

Published: Thursday 26th Nov 2009 by Sam

Uber Diva Mariah Carey‘s performance of ‘I Want To Know What Love Is’ on UK show This Morning aired today. The performance, which was filmed last week, was a little hit and miss. There is no question about it, Ms. Carey-Cannon lip-synched several parts of this performance, yet she sounded pretty decent on the live sections too (aside from a few doo-doo notes).

It’s a shame she has to lip-synch when her voice is her most renown talent. Hence why I kinda give Whitney Houston props over ol’ Mimi. Ms. Houston could be sounding a hot mess (as evidenced in some of her performances pre-comeback), yet as I type I’m struggling to remember an instance when Whitney has ever mimed in recent times (Superbowl doesn’t count). Any way enough of my waffle…

What do you think of the performance?

    FOR THOSE WHO DONT KNOW THIS (U NON US FOLKS) EVERY ONE WHO SINGS AT THE SUPERBOWL MUST MUST MUST SING OVER A LIVE TRACK. REASON BEING FOR PROPER SOUND QUALITY. WHITNEY, BEYONCE, MARIAH ALL SANG OVER A LIVE TRACKS.
    NOW ITS SO FUNNY TO ME HOW PEOPLE (ONLY WHITNEY FANS) COME UP WITH ALL THESE REASON FOR WHITNEY, WHEN WHITNEY HONESTLY SOUNDS TERRIBLE THESE DAYS. YES SHE WORKS WITH WHAT SHE HAS, BUT ITS SAD TO HEAR HER STRUGGLE TO GET A NOTE OUT, AND STILL SOUND BAD. I WOULD RATHER HER LIP IT ALL DAY. FIRST OFF IT CANT BE GOOD FOR YOUR VOICE TO DO THAT.
    MARIAH ON THE OTHER HAND YOU GIVE HER HELL WHEN SHE LIPS IT, WHEN CLEARLY SHE KNOWS SHE CANT DO IT THAT DAY. WHY F UP YOUR VOICE, WHEN YOU DONT NEED TO. WHEN MARIAH DOES SING LIVE, HALF OF YOU (WHITNEY FANS) DONT WANT TO GIVE IT TO HER BECAUSE DEEP DOWN INSIDE YOU KNOW MARIAH STILL HAS IT, JUST NOT ALL THE TIME. MY GOD SHE IS NOT 28 ANY MORE (ALTHOUGH SHE THINKS SHE IS 12). THE WOMEN REALLY HASNT STOP PUTTING OUT ALBUMS FOR ALMOST 20 YEARS NOW…THINK ABOUT IT. THERE WAS NO COMEBACK FOR HER. EVEN WHEN GLITTER CAME OUT AND SHE WAS WRITTEN OFF, MARIAH ONLY HAD 1 YR N 1/2 MAYBE 2 YR INBETWEEN HER ALBUMS SINCE 1990 NON STOP. YES MARIAH SHOULD REST, BUT FOR THE WORK SHE HAS PUT IN, ITS NO WONDER SHE HAS BAD DAYS .
    KEEP IT REAL, NEITHER ONE OF OUR DIVAS HAVE WHAT THEY HAD BACK IN THE DAY.
    IM GRATEFUL FOR THE GOOD DAYS AND BAD DAYS WITH BOTH ARTIST, BECAUSE THEY ARE OUT HERE SINGING FOR US. TWO OF THE GREATEST VOICES OF ALL TIME AND ALL YOU CAN DO IS POINT OUT HOW BAD THEY SOUND, OH IM SORRY HOW BAD MARIAH SOUNDS AND HOW WHITNEY SOUNDS BETTER THEN EVER (YOU PEOPLE ARE INSANE). IM SURE MOST OF YOU ARE STILL IN YOUR EARLY 20’S OR YOUNGER. SO HONESTLY YOU DONT KNOW NOTHING ABOUT WHITNEY OR MARIAH LIKE I DO. I AM A MARIAH FAN FROM DAY 1, AND LOOOOOVED WHITNEY SINCE 85 (THATS WHEN WHITNEY CAUGHT MY ATTENTION) CUT THE HATE OUT AND IF YOU GONNA HATE, HATE ON BOTH OF THEM CAUSE WHITNEY SOUNDS NOTHING LIKE WHITNEY HOUSTON ANYMORE. F*** WHAT YOU HEARD, AND MARIAH NEEDS MORE MATURE MUSIC.

    Not the best showing but I appreciated it.

    Mariah and Whitney are both great superstars.

    LAWLZ

    It doesn’t hurt that this video is OUT OF SYNC.

    She looks gorgeous. And based on all the super promo s*** blitz she’s on, I’m giving her a free pass on this one. She’s already done like 234095u84390568 great live UK showings.

    If someone told me to sing on a show called THIS MORNING, I’d lip-sync my ass off too. Nobody needs to sing in the morning when she’s already had spectacular UK shows.

    Love the whistle! 😀

    And Sam, can you not be cunty? When she sings live, you keep saying it looks like she’s pooping to strain out the notes. It’s just a lose-lose with you. Keep Trent on the Mariah postings.

    I’d rather you just stick to Rihanna bashing. Oh, and even if I hate Rihanna, you need to get a third poster who isn’t as much of a Rihanna hater as you and Trent if you want to maintain credibility.

    K THANKS.

    No matter what happened with Whitney! She’ll always be the best ever! Mariah losts your soul! She does the same thing always! I used to like Mariah but now she’s like the old divas from the past ! Whitney is old now but she’s like a true diva! I look to you is an amazing album!

    I love the old Whitney, but her new album is boring – the studio vocal ability is still awful by Whitney, there are no HIGH vocals, so it is an effectless album at all.

    Despite of this, Mariah’s current LP, Memoirs… is a lyrcally, vocally, musically, etc. fantastic and awesome record. I think it is her BEST record yet! And I think her voice is back again.

    Mariah’s live Å‘erformances are far better than the ones of Whitney.

    I respect Whitney because of her power of recovering from drug consumption, but as a musician she is not that big anymore.

    Really , she’s performed this song a lot over there in the UK , & has been doing tons of interviews, Mariahs voice isn’t one that can be strained , I mean look at all the perfomances of this song , they’ve neverr dissipointed. Yu can’t look over whits bad performances just cause yu feel bad for her, she did drugs, got clean , GET OVER IT.

  13. anon November 26, 2009

    i think she was awesome, though i too doubt she was singing live at some parts.. but i want her to promote H.A.T.E.U. instead!!!!!!
    so much more potential for a single!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  14. YeahYeah November 27, 2009

    I thought she mimed at a different performance but I don’t think she did on this one, or at least she she the ending ad-libs live
