Mariah Performs ‘It’s A Wrap’ On Lopez Tonight

Published: Friday 18th Dec 2009 by Sam

Mariah Carey appeared on another episode of TBS’ Lopez Tonight a few hours ago, giving a live rendition of ‘It’s A Wrap’ from her ‘Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel’ LP.

Though I actually found the performance quite good (especially the vocals), Mariah’s stage movements (or lack of, should I say) made for somewhat uncomfortable viewing. Surely, if you can’t move in what you’re wearing, wear something else? Just saying…

What do you think of the performance?

    Damn, I love your site but you comment on too much man.
    stop bitchin and just say the performance was good , I didnt expect her to ever sing this song live , cause on the record she is really belting, her voice is really coming back bit by bit. And yeah of course the parts at the end are lipsynced but who cares

    we all know mariah is stiff as hell, it aint gonna be better unless someone really tells her how to move

    More Mariah hate… never heard of the season of good will?!

  3. J December 18, 2009

    OMG you are too much, atleast Trent acknowledges when sopmething is GOOD.
    Everything Mariah does lately is getting nitpicked by you!!! She just gave her best vocal performance in years, and you still are bitching.
    You are a joke.

    great performance and wonderful voice. It’s the best!!!!!!! her look it’s so.. horrible!!!!!!!!!

  7. GeeMan December 18, 2009

    I must say this was a great performance and I enjoyed watching it, not every performance requires movement.

  8. lalagirl December 18, 2009

    Why is she performing this song and it’s not the next single and can she ever perform a song without faking the high notes uggghh!

    why is she on this non rating show 2xs in a row- don’t get it

    This one of my favorite song off the album , that was greattt . The song its self is just epic, she did it justice. She never can do the same for obsessed, its just not her kind of record.

    This is my favorite song from the cd! I’m a sucker for a throwback sound. However, watchin Mariah is painful. It’s like she has no idea what to do on a stage. WTF does she half way walk over to the back up singers for? Makes no sense. And the background singers helpin her out with the higher/belting parts is ridiculous for someone who is praised for their voice. Sorry, but it’s true.

    Well, I have been a Mariah fan since her very first album and have followed her since. Honestly I just believe she is older and just not as vibrant as she use to be. I admit the hand movements make me nervous as well as her vocals (live) aren’t the best anymore. I mean nowadays people want to see a show when they come out to see their favorite perfomer live. I love her still but facing reality that its “a wrap” for her in a few more years. People just aren’t receiving her like they use to…Love ya MiMi

    i really enjoyed this, was being mad at the audience in the front for a minute..i wanna be there.

    What was adorable was the ”let me take a breath, and regain my composure” part and she just stopped and held her finger up then sang ” if you fd up its over”

  13. antertain December 18, 2009

    Mariah has NEVER been much of a mover so its just not an issue now cus she will never be a mover after all these years.

    I will say she’s a lot more stiffer but i feel its because apart of her afraid to let go the free her vocals in case it cracks

    Mariah old skool never moved well but u see her body was relaxed, and the FULL passion of singing jus flowed through her.

    Does she smoke cig’s??? I only ask cus mayb that apart of the reason we hear the croak in some parts of her vocals.

    She defo rebuilding some confidence though cus she sounds so much better live now rhan a few months ago..

    Mariah doesn’t rely on her backing singers it’s just this song has alot of accent sections which BV’s are required 4. She loves it when they on point so when she looks at them and started walkin over she was feeling the vibes…

    Mariah will always be BIG to me cus the staying power she has had is EXCELLENT, so i appreciate that. Sales are not what is making an artist this year because for the except few the industry hasn’t done great overall in 09..

    Again Cassie would kill that s***. Peep her performance on 106 & park.

  15. Jr December 18, 2009

    Stop hating, Sam! That performance was GREAT – the best Mimi has sounded in a long time.

  16. Adam December 18, 2009

    I loved it. I hope the rumours that Beyonce is gonna duet on the track is true, because it would be amazing, and I can really imagine them singing together and making a video together. Would be a hit.

  17. SOOS December 18, 2009

    AWESOME!

    Mimi rocks!

    Memoirs is the ALBUM OF THE YEAR!!!

  18. tAY December 18, 2009

    IT WAS AIGHT….TOWARD THE BRIDGE SHE HAD TO ADD IN THE STUDIO VOCALS AND THATS WHAT THRU ME OFF…..BLAH! STILL LUV MCC THO

  19. sokmidyk December 18, 2009

    lip sync

  20. Therealthing December 18, 2009

    This was lipsynced through out. I wish her stans would stop being delusional. The night before, her voice was ragged for obsessed and she lipped the high belts and the whistle.

    The next night she sounds amazing! I think not, watch the clip again.

    I wouldnot pay to see her.

  21. jeremimi December 18, 2009

    ^^^^ NO B****, I wish the haters just ACCEPT THAT SHE CAN STILL SING!!!! Yall gotta be ignorant or just JEALOUS that this woman can still sing, DANG, LET IT GO!!!! Give her credit where it’s due and stop this, if you hate her, then DONT’ WATCH HER!!!!!!!!!!
    I absolutely HATE MARY J. BLIGE, so I REFUSE to watch her videos, because SHE CAN NOTT SING PERIOD!!!!!! ANYWAY, Mariah was hitting high F’s and High G’s in this song in her FULL VOICE and it was all LIVE, how brilliant!!!!!!!

  22. jeremimi December 18, 2009

    THIS IS A F****** MID-TEMPO / SLOW JAM……WHY MUST SHE DANCE???? I’m sorry that SAM is a gay f***** and probably dance in the mirror to slow songs, BUT MARIAH DOESN’T HAVE TO, BECAUSE SHE’S WAYYYYYYYYY RICHER AND BETTER THAN SAM…..AND PLUS, the new guy TRENT is WAYYYYY BETTER with his comments and opinions ANYWAY!!!!!!! LOL, TRENT SHOULD SERIOUSLY RUN THIS WHOLE SITE!!!!!!!!!

  23. Nicky December 18, 2009

    WTF?!!!!

    If you guys really think she was singing that live, you obviously arent a singer!

    MARIAH lipsinced more than half of this!

  24. Boricua December 18, 2009

    ^^
    Naw, she only lipped the last part of the bridge and some of the belting afterwards.
    Everything else was live. She performed the song twice – each was slightly different.
    Real talk.

  25. Anne December 18, 2009

    A lot of obvious lip syncing and I can’t believe the author didn’t call her out on it. Mariah is finally facing reality. She adds lip syncing not so she can shake her backside like Britney, but because her vocals fail now so often during live performance. Almost as bad as Whitney and some of her fans are equally as delusional as some of Whitney’s fans. Two GREAT singers of the past have been reduced to average (at best) singers. This is the first that I’ve heard of the cigarette theory but it would explain things. Of course we already have the explanation for Whitney. Beyonce better take heed/learn from their mistakes and take care of her precious gift.

  26. King December 18, 2009

    She is singing it live. Mariahdaily.com posted her singing it twice and there both different and LIVE.

  27. jeremimi December 18, 2009

    The part yall saying she lipsyncing on….JUST LOOK AT HER BACKGROUND SINGER, that is NOT a back-track singing for Mariah, that is the BACKGROUND SINGER singing WITH MARIAH LIVE you IDIOTS!!!!!!!!!!!

  28. ROB December 19, 2009

    I LOVE THIS PERFORMANCE N IM SO GLAD MARIAH IS GETTING THAT VOICE IN CHECK BUT THE TOUR IS GONNA DESTROY IT 🙁 BUT NEWAYS I BELIEVE MAIAH IS TIRED OF BEING CRITICIZED AND WANTS TO PROVE HERSELF AGAIN , N RIGHT NOW SHES JUST TRYING TO FIND WHATS COMFORTABLE FOR HER ON STAGE , SHES VERY SELF CONCIOUS THATS WHY SHE LOVES THE STUDIO COS ITS JUST HER AN A MIC , NOT CAMERAS N PEOPLE N HER FACE , BUT SHE PROVED SHE STILL GOT IT WIT THIS PERFORMANCE

  29. The OneMr December 19, 2009

    LMAO if you slow people think she liped this song you don’t know any thing about music!!! I bet the ones making negative responses can’t even tell you what a c malor scale is, but can somehow call out wrong notes, sections liped, and etc…… LOL if you dont know the notes how do you know if they are wrong? Just stupid i tell you…..

    Trent you should really be over this site…..the things you write relate more to the music than, what a artist have on, what they look like, what they drunk the morining before LoL you know all that stuip self image crap!!!!! Thanks trent because if it was not for you I would not be on this site!!!!!! Sam well if i guess since i dont have any thing nice to say I will leave it at that!

  30. The OneMr December 19, 2009
