Mariah Carey Wows The Walmart Shareholders

Published: Sunday 6th Jun 2010 by Trent

Earlier this week we posted raw footage of Mariah Carey’s performance of ‘Hero’ at the 2010 Walmart Shareholders’ Meeting. Now, high quality footage of the her entire appearance including her rendition of ‘We Belong Together’ has surfaced. Check it out below:

While not her best performances, Carey’s voice has truly bounced back from its shaky condition of 2008. This improvement makes the prospect of a new studio album seem even more intriguing. Furthermore, since it has been announced that her Christmas album will be in the vein of a live LP, Carey may indeed be preparing to show doubters why she is known as one of the best who ever did it.

Sidebar: It’s so refreshing to see a diva who can still sing her signature material without coughing her way off the stage.

Thoughts?

    Trent are u having a laugh?? that was not good at all clean your ears out.

  2. Topman June 6, 2010

    Sing it, Mimi! And LOL, oh Trent…

  3. Gucci June 6, 2010

    YEAH RIGHT sweetie. Walmart’s stock market crashed after that horrible performance. Why are you trying to throw shade at Queen whitney? At least she’s not 500 pounds of raspyness and hair extensions trying to sing on a stage that has grown accustomed to her lackluster voice. This is not 1990, and sadly Mariah’s voice will never be what it used to be. It sounds like pigeons in the street fighting for food.

    <3 and honey please that new album won't even flop. You know why? Because it will be thrown in the trash and scrapped just like Ange's advocate. No one is checking for COWriah anymore her glory days are over.

  4. Tha Phoenix June 6, 2010

    YAS MARIAH!! SHOW THEM DOUBTERS JUST WHY YOU ARE STILL AROUND AFTER 20 YEARS!!

  5. Gucci June 6, 2010

    LMAO at this performance! Trent obviously can’t hair Mariah’s voice because Whitney’s “I look to You” has drowned out the sound. I think you’re giving praise to the wrong person, SWEETIE.

    This performance was straight garbage as usual. Boiling hot ass mess. Try again COWriah

  6. kid1 June 6, 2010

    Great to see her confidence return in this performance. She’s been so petrified and stiff on a stage in some her more recent performances. If she had the water she needed, I’m sure her voice would’ve been stronger.

    Sidenote: That outfit is total no-no, preggers or not, Mariah has the worse taste in outfits. She’s on her way to being the next Aretha Franklin…great voice, but still thinks she’s a size 2.

  7. Boricua June 6, 2010

    She’s GOT to be pregnant…

  8. h June 6, 2010

    Damn she talks too much Lol, why does everyone hate Mariah so much, surely it just can’t be because most of you are whitney stans?

  9. SHEILA HOWARD June 6, 2010

    I WAS ALSO THERE AND TOTALLY AGREE SHE PORED HERSELF INTO HER DRESS THE SAME AS THE MUSIC AWARDS WHEN SHE FELL AND HER HUSBAND HAD TO PICK HER UP. ALTHOUGH THE REST OF THE CONFERENCE WAS AWSUME OW YEAH NO SIMPATHY ABOUT HER NOT HAVING (WATER)

  10. Poppy June 6, 2010

    ^^ Its not just Whitney stans that don’t like Mariah

    this performance was not good by the way so trent stop reaching…

  11. MizzCutie June 6, 2010

    Okay…not great, but not horrible…..

  12. meems June 6, 2010

    This was horrible. She kills me with her backing vocals/lipsycing ass and that live parts ALWAYS sound a hot ass mess. She is a studio artist. Get used to it.

  13. CJ June 6, 2010

    She did pretty good on “Hero” but We belong together wasn’t so great. I really wish her voice comes back fully. I miss it.

  14. Gucci June 6, 2010

    yes girl it’s just that this performance was horrendous and Trentisha trying to throw shade at whitney as if COWriah slayed someone with this garbage performance.

  15. malyeh June 6, 2010

    YES YES YES !!!!!!! MEUUUURIIAAAAH !!!!

  16. Gucci June 6, 2010

    Girl I just don’t know how the stage helped up. I was hurting just watching it.

  17. kev June 6, 2010

    Mariah sings like she is in sheer pain with constant body aches! It simply torture to witness her performing. Both Mimi and Whitney don’t have the voices they use to, but pay your respects to Queen W.H. she paved the way for Mimi. Now they’re both legends, so let’s not bicker… but there will only be one Whitney!

  18. exposed June 6, 2010

    YEA, TRENT U FUCKTARD.

    I SEE THE FAT WHITE ARETHA STANDING ON STAGE. HOW ABOUT GIVING MIMOO A COUPLE OF DRINKS SO LEE DANIELS CAN HELP HER OFF STAGE AGAIN!! SHE SINGS THE SAME S*** WAY AS SHE DID AT MJ’S FUNERAL.

    S***, LOWER THE VOLUME ON THE STRAINING AND SCREECHING. YEA, WHITNEY WENT THRU A LOT OF S*** PHYSICALLY WHICH EXPLAINS HER VOCALS. WHAT’S MIMOO’S EXCUSE BESIDES BEING A DRUNK???

    I WISH SHE LIP SYNC HERO LIKE SHE USUALLY DOES. AWFUL!!!!

    TRENT BE A LITTLE LESS GAY. MAYBE YOU’LL OPEN UP YOUR ROSE COLORED GLASSES, ER… CHAMPAGNE LAMB GLASS.

  19. ADE June 6, 2010

    LMAO why the Whitney Houston Shade?? Damn Trent! That performance was painful to watch, I really hope she is pregnant because she is huge,

  20. Gucci June 6, 2010

    <3 yes sweetheart there will only be one Whitney but I'm looking at this performance and Mariah looking like 300 people.

  21. thekiddz June 6, 2010

    I find it sad that she tells the audience to cut her some slack, because it’s “early”. (Sigh)….Oh MiMi….I’ll always cherish the vocals you have given for the past 20 yrs. Like my mom says; everything is for a time and Mariah’s time is up.

    Now this is her best performance of Hero, she did a vocal run to every high belt

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-4VO5IpUkhM

    @ Trent…you shady queen. Always throwing shade at Whitney to build up Mariah. When will this Mariah vs Whitney thing come to an end?

  22. exposed June 6, 2010

    @THEKIDDZ

    GREAT FIND WITH THE OLD MIMOO CLIP. JUST PROVES TRENT IS DELUSIONAL.

  23. Blu Majik June 6, 2010

    She did well. Her voice was much better than during the E=MC2 and Memoirs era. If she is pregnant, congrats, if not then I’ll leave it as that.

  24. Rob June 6, 2010

    mariah killed it , she will never sing with the technique she used but she can still hit them notes

  25. HBF82 June 6, 2010

    Mariah nailed both songs!
    Crowd went wild. They were all singing along.
    Queen diva.
    This is why she still signs in front of corporate ppl, opening hotels parties, private parties, music award shows, concerts….
    She still has it.

  26. HBF82 June 6, 2010

    Poor FATNEY HOUSTON fans: hating on Mariah will not bring back DRUGy voice back. EVER AGAIN.

  27. sugarfree June 6, 2010

    Everything changes with age, and I guess a beautiful voice is no exception. I wonder if the change an be attributed to the wear and tear of perfoming and touring over the years/ I always think about what Beyonce’s voice will be like when she gets into her late 30’s and 40’s given she always screams over her tracks. Anyway, Mariah is one of the best that has ever done it and I got nothing but luv for her and Whitney, Aretha, Chaka, etc.

  28. AG June 6, 2010

    at least Mariah is not asking the whole/single audience to sing the whole song for her. her voice may not be same when she started but she can still hit those notes! don’t hate the player, hate the game!!!

  29. MUSIC LOVER June 6, 2010

    Look at these haters! You can hate all you wait, but it still won’t take away from her accomplishments. When your artists can have a song be #1 for 16 weeks like “One Sweet Day” or even 14 weeks like “We Belong Together,” then only can you sound remotely intelligent when comparing your artist to the legend that is Mariah Carey. Until then please continue to sound STUPID AS F***! ;D

  30. Quiana June 6, 2010

    This was ok. I seen better from her years ago, but we can’t go back to those days. I think the extra weight and the alcohol got her voice not at best at all. She really needs to stop drinking because it damage her voice for real.

  31. nickii June 6, 2010

    this performance was ok, nothing of great let alone amazing!
    Trent stop the nonsense about Whitney!
    And Lord when is this woman gonna learn to dress her size?? she can’t make a move without making one think that she about to explode!
    SMH!!

  32. Javier June 6, 2010

    Cowriah really lmfao @Gucci

  33. Darren June 6, 2010

    mmm finally a great mariah performance.

  34. Gustavo June 6, 2010

    not only was it awful, but she was also lipsynching the ending of both songs!

  35. iDrag4MCAndBey June 6, 2010

    GUCCI, SHUT YO PRESSED UGLY ASS UP. WHITNEY TALKS THROUGH HER F****** SONGS. MARIAH SINGS. WE ALL KNOW SHE CANT SING LIKE SHE USED TO, BUT TELL ME WHO CAN SING BETTER….IT DAMN SURE AINT THAT C********* WHITNEY HOUSTON. NASTY B****** THINK YALL CUTE. MARIAH IS THE QUEEN, SO YOU B****** CAN SIT THE F*** DOWN

  36. hassan June 6, 2010

    all u guys sayin it was horrible have u heard whitney lately? guys she can hardly even sing her old songs hint hint i will always love u she was gettin boooed by fans plus i was there! she made sum wicked music but SHE CNT SING HER MUSIC!!!!! MARIAH CAN SOOO SHUT UP HATERS

  37. GangsterA June 6, 2010

    That was great not her best but still love mariah

  38. der June 6, 2010

    i think today rihanna is a better vocalist than mariah.
    hot mess.

  39. JEFF June 6, 2010

    Haters and Whitney stans are mad and just jealous that Mariah can still sing, and can do it without coughing or talking her way through a song, or better yet stopping for dramatic effect just to play off the fact that shes tired and cannot finish a song!

    I Love whitney but com’on Son! The tour Reviews say it all, im gonna end it there!

    Anyways This was a great performance, Mariah si not 25 anymore, shes 40 and for 40 her voice is still soft and can belt those notes many wish they could.
    I just lough my ass off reading Guccis comment’s and everyones else’s opinion on Mariah,
    Cuz while they sit and blog here how bad she is , “Cowriah” is laughing her fatass to the bank.
    BTW the standing Ovation speaks for itself!

  40. Gucci June 6, 2010

    Well at least there will never ever be a shortage of milk for Nick and the baby. COWriah slays in that department. She should just hang up her singing career and work on the farm. Whitney’s coughs sounds a helluva alot better than the Emancipation of MOO MOO.

    <3 I'm done. Keep Queen Whitney out of your mouth and buy more copies of Mariah's flop album.

    i swear she should have played Precious in that movie.

  41. DANBOFFICIAL (AALIYAH/RIHANNA/XTINA) STAN) June 6, 2010

    FAT ASS FLOP !!!
    sounded like someone had taken one of her songs and chopped and screw the f*** outta that s*** !!!

    Mariah you need to hang the singing gloves up now that your voice is gone, focus on your bad acting.

    reasons why Mariah is now s***….

    her riffs are off.

    her runs are always a fail.

    the whistle notes are always mimed.

    And she rarely actually hits the big notes.

    She has the stage presence of a frying pan.

  42. rated x June 7, 2010

    really people, yall actually making fun of mariah’s singing and her weight?
    i swear some people got to much time on their hands..

    mariah carey is a true legend, even on her worst day, she can sing circles around all these so call singers out there.
    some people are such hypocrites, calling her fat ugly, and be the same ones on a rihanna or christina post crying like a b**** when people make fun of them…

    mariah carey doesnt need yall approval the bish is swimming in stacks, so her fat ass will be alright..

    i like the perfomance, shes done worse, i rather hear her voice crack than listen to a goat in heat.

  43. Lucy June 7, 2010

    Gucci aren’t you a Britney Spears fan? Shut the f*** up, you stupid b**** and go worry about your nasally singing, auto-tuned up, smoking, oh I can’t take care of myself because I’m under my daddies control idol. You shouldn’t ever trash Mariah’s voice, when you support possibly the biggest no talent pop star in music.

    You can shut the f*** up as well Kev. Mariah never wanted to be Whitney and she couldn’t give a f*** less if there is only one Whitney. Mariah surpassed that crackhead along time ago and at least Mariah can still sing. She doesn’t sit around on stage sweating up a storm, sounding like some horrible American Idol reject. Nor does she have thousands of fans leaving her concerts because she now has one of the worst voices ever.

    From the moment Mariah puts on a performance where she doesn’t sound her best, the haters come out in full force attacking her and claiming she sounded horrible. Yet her last tour received marvelous reviews. You fucktard Whit stans have absolutely no room to talk, especially with the horrible reviews Whit has been getting on her recent tour.

    Here is what a professional review just said about one of Whit’s shows.

    “Critic Thomas Soie Hansen, of the Berlingske Tidende newspaper, writes: “She looked and sounded like a person who doesn’t have many years left to live. At the end of the show she looked like she was ready to explode.”

    LMAO! Let me know when a professional reviewer writes something as terrible for Mariah’s voice like they do Whit’s.

  44. Rob June 7, 2010

    Whitney fans have A*** like her. Whitney is a crack head and can’t even sing as good as Ciara live these days. Mariah doesn’t sound as good as she used to but at least she’s not waiting on death’s door.

  45. Nic June 7, 2010

    I think it’s absolutely phenomonal how Mariah can perform one of her biggest #1, worldwide hits from 1993, and another from 2005, a 12 year span and both groundbreaking #1 hits. Who else in the industry can do that? —NO one

  46. Ldh June 7, 2010

    This was good, people like to hate Mariah, but at the end of the day that is good singing at age 40 and live. If she can do that live then she can definately still record. A lot better than Rihanna live

  47. C June 7, 2010

    Trent I love you papi but for Mariah this is horrible (keyword for Mariah), her voice use to be flawless, but she can still go off…I think she should just go off all song now instead of the soft voice

  48. Anne June 7, 2010

    Now I know just how devoted (and delusional OR deaf) Whitney fans are. Mariah is far from her peak but she sounds 10X better than the recent Whitney performances and that’s not saying much b/c just about anyone would. I agree w/Trent, Mariah is showing improvement. Good for her.

  49. BEYONCE VS. WORLD June 7, 2010

    This week, Lady Gaga’s latest single “Alejandro” climbed to #9 on the United World Chart, making The Fame (Monster) the only album in history to deliver seven worldwide Top 10 hits! Michael Jackson’s Thriller contains six songs that reached Top 10 on the chart.

  50. BEYONCE VS. WORLD June 7, 2010

    Lady Gaga scores her seventh consecutive Top 10 hit in the United States, as her latest release “Alejandro” jumps 11-8 on this week’s Billboard Hot 100. Below are the peaks of her singles on the chart:
    “Just Dance” feat. Colby O’Donis: #1 (2009)
    “Poker Face”: #1 (2009)
    “LoveGame”: #5 (2009)
    “Paparazzi”: #6 (2009)
    “Bad Romance”: #2 (2009)
    “Telephone” feat. Beyoncé: #3 (2010)
    “Alejandro”: #8 (so far) (2010)

    You can help the song rise higher on the chart by purchasing it on iTunes and requesting on radio stations.

  51. tronthemosntar June 7, 2010

    If you think she sounded bad; then you are obviously a hater. That was pretty damn good for one of the most challenging songs ever recorded. I think that if Whitney could even get up on stage and even hit a fraction the notes she did in her prime then we would be talking. Until then carry the negative and hateful comments to somewhere else because Mariah is still more relevant than Whitney in her fatness!! LMAO

  52. Anne June 7, 2010

    Good point NIC. Sometimes I forget just how long her career span is; I think Aretha may have managed a similar feat by having major hits in the 70’s and 80’s; but I can’t think of any others.

  53. JJ June 7, 2010

    WOW she was breathing really hard after WBT LOL… i like how she said “this is usually my bed time but you guys wouldnt understand cuz you guys have regular jobs / lives” LOL

  54. Gucci June 7, 2010

    Of course she’s breathing hard. Her fat ass can’t even stay stationary on stage without panting for breath and MOOing like her life depended on it girl. Not cute

    <3

  55. Sarah June 7, 2010

    Yeah. Gucci and these other dumb jokers need to kick rocks. I don’t get all of the cruelty and extreme hate for Mariah. Call me crazy but I think a lot of it has to with jealousy smdh. These people must be 12 years old.

    Mariah has succeeded greatly and of course her haters contributed and still contributes to that. Haters can only make you stronger and it’s a great thing Mariah did not allow them to break her.

  56. Gucci June 7, 2010

    @Sarah

    Like I said I’ll only be a hater when Angel’s Advocate comes out. Oh wait it was scrapped just like her Cow voice in this performance.

    <3 mwah.

  57. exposed June 7, 2010

    MARIAH IS ABOUT TO BE DUMPED BY HER LABEL IS NOT ALREADY. WOW, 3 OUT OF 3 IS BAD!!!!!!!!!!!

  58. FiercerMC June 7, 2010

    she always delivers!
    great voice!

  59. Sugarwalls June 7, 2010

    She’s the only female artist that comes close to beatles in the most # 1’s in BB…
    She’s a great deal of a talent!
    Hater’s u can’t pull her down!
    Numbers, achievements, awards don’t lie

  60. bobby from bulgaria June 7, 2010

    Come on, it’s so obvious that this Gucci is some 10 year old kid who just likes to talk trash… Just ignore that… It’s baby stuff…

  61. HBF82 June 7, 2010

    QUEEN Mariah just burned FATney CRACKston ALIVE.

  62. Gucci June 7, 2010

    @bobby from bulgaria

    Okay hun. Looking very serial-kill-esque in that picture so I’m not even going to say anything. Don’t read my comments then. Not my fault Mariah belongs on a farm.

  63. annon June 7, 2010

    wow give her a break peeps! i thought she did great!

  64. Jemma June 7, 2010

    iDrag4MCAndBey

    Your comments are so TRUE!!! stop bagging Mariah, cause all you losers are just J E A L O U S!!!!!
    just because you’ll never get anywhere in you sad life, you don’t have to take it out on somebody who has actually tried hard and succeded. Mariah has TRUE Talent, the complete OPPOSITE of S****** Houston…She completely ruined her voice by doing something that could have been preventable, and has NO vocal talent, or good looks whatsoever…get over Whitney…She’s just old news.

    And I’d like to see YOU sing Mariah’s whistle register! Oh wait…I forgot… YOU CAN’T, Gucci

  65. MARIAH CAN’T CARRY ANYMORE June 7, 2010

    MARIAH IS OVER!

    HER VOICE IS GONE AND NO ONE IS BEING FOOLED BY HER LIPSYNCHING ANTICS!

    PLEASE MARIAH DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND RETIRE SO YOU WON’T ACT IN DENIAL OF YOUR FLOP SONGS, FLOP ALBUMS, AND FLOP TOUR!

    EVERYTHING YOU DO NOWADAYS IS A FLOP!

    QUEEN OF FLOP!

  66. Terrance June 7, 2010

    GARBAGE!! HER VOCALS HAVE NOT BEEN THE SAME SINCE MID 2000’s.

  67. MIKERICHIE June 7, 2010

    she was not good

  68. Teresa June 7, 2010

    First of all, we all know (especially the lambs, since we’re the ones that love her) that Mariah’s voice is not what it was. However, she is still able to sing better than most, if not all, of the artists (and for some, I use that term loosely) today. Mariah has pretty much been singing non-stop with nary a break during her twenty year career! It’s only natural that her voice would suffer for it. She is and always will be the best vocalist I’ve ever heard (you see that there, that’s my opinion, no need to share it)!

    To those saying she’s finished, she’ll be finished when she’s good and ready to be and not a minute before. A few vicious opinions on a little known music blog will not change that. As long as she still has a passion for music and making music, she will always be here and will assuredly, always have an audience.

    I enjoy Whitney’s first few albums but it’s glaringly obvious that she can no longer sing and sadly, she has only herself to blame for that. Maybe with proper rest, care and vocal training, she will be able to recapture at least half of the voice she once had (which would still be superior to the “singers” out there now). I wish her the best.

    What it all boils down to is this, you have your taste and the people who enjoy Mariah, then, now and tomorrow have theirs. There is no need to hate on anyone. Enjoy who you enjoy and let others do the same.

    And to a certain vociferously hateful poster here, for your own sake, please seek psychiatric help. Maybe it can help you with your anger issues.

  69. The one June 9, 2010

    @ Gucci you are so dumb!!!!! You’re right stuip, trent can’t hair Mariah’s voice!!!! Hair!!!! LOL then you have the nerve to try and down someone!!! LMAO

  70. The one June 9, 2010

    Great Job Mariah You are the best!!! A Living legend!!!

  71. Jemma June 10, 2010

    hahahahahah at The One’s comment. GUCCI YOU SUCK

    Guccis gone now cause he/she has finally realised that you just can’t bag Mariah!

  72. keysha June 10, 2010

    Gucci GURLBYE.

    did I see you say whitney’s more successful than mariah ???

    Honey,Mariah has sold 205m records (150m albums + 55m singles) WW.

    She’s the SECOND biggest selling female artist behind madonna(Queen of Pop)

    Whitney’s sales have reached 184m records with her latest release LTY.
    (130m albums + 54m singles)

    And don’t gimme s*** about how she’s released less albums – The 130m figure includes ALL of her soundtracks.

    Whitney has less than HALF the number of weeks that mariah spent on #1 on BB100 – 79 weeks( shame considering IWALY spent 14 weeks on #1.)
    Mariah has 18 #1s – more than any solo artist EVER.
    Carey can be also termed as the Queen of American Radio – she has the biggest radio hit of american history – WBT. It has racked up 8.5 billion audience impressions till today.

    She has spent 89 weeks on top of the radio charts – a success unequalled by even the leagendary Beatles.

    Gurl,even Celine Dion has sold wayyy more than WH.Sorry babe.

    gurl,don’t just traipse in on threads talking s*** you don’t know.Bye now.Stay pressed.

    FTR : Madonna : 280m records sold WW – QUEEN of pop.

    BTW : This performance was her best in Years,no kidding. 🙂

  73. keysha June 10, 2010

    Sorrryy what ?? Mariah is less successful than whitney ???

    gucci gurlbye.

    1) QOP Madonna = 280 m records

    2)Mariah = 205m records (150m albums + 55m singles)

    3) Horselady Celine Dion = 200m records

    4)Whitney = 185m records (130m albums + 55m albums)

    gurl,don’t talk s*** you don’t know !

    BTW, the performance was her best in YEARS.

  74. iiLOVEsMARIAH June 13, 2010

    HA! Its funny how @GUCCI hasn’t commented when confronted by the REAL FACTS! haha.. And all you got to say is “oh Mariah is fat” “she can’t sing” .. Have you checked Whitney out lately, she’s ballooning like your fat camel toe! And she CAN”T EVEN SING NO MORE! She lost her voice years back when she made the STUPID ass decision to be with her “Bobby Brown” .. I guess her stupidity reflects upon her fans. HAVE A SEAT! “Your delusional, your delusional, boy you wasting your time” ..

    P.S. GUCCI, whats with her breathing hard. it shows that she ACTUALLY SUNG! instead of TRYING to hit a note and failing then skipping the whole song and taking drugs in between breaks.. Stop being in denial, WHITNEY has passed her PRIME .. Since BODYGUARD .. x
