Mariah Carey Performs At Disney Parks Christmas Day Parade

Published: Saturday 4th Dec 2010 by Trent

Mariah Carey recently taped her performances for the 27th annual Disney Parks Christmas Day Parade. The diva performed the classic ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’ and ‘Oh Santa’ from her new Christmas album, ‘Merry Christmas II You’. Peep the fan footage below:

‘Oh Santa’

‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’

The main problem that I have with Carey’s performances during the last few years is her inconsistency. While I understand that performing at outdoor venues almost always requires singers to lip-synch because of sound recording issues (see the Superbowl, etc), I see no reason why she couldn’t have sung ‘All I Want…’ live.

In fact, Carey delivered a powerful and near-flawless version of ‘Oh Santa’ without the aid of a backtrack so what was the excuse for miming ‘All I Want…’? We have seen her perform the latter several times live in recent years and she even did it at the 2004 Disney Parade.

Although there are several hormonal effects that Carey’s pregnancy may be having on her voice, her ability to sing one song completely live almost refutes that argument. If she wants to impress those who doubt her current vocal ability then she needs to go the extra mile, sing live as often as possible and leave the lip-syncing to Kelly Rowland.

Thoughts?

  5. Darren December 4, 2010

    She is just letting her voice get some rest in between, she is still an amazing singer trust me.

  6. gio88 December 4, 2010

    Why Kelly rowland?

  7. Trent-isha’s Retarded Sister December 4, 2010

    she didn’t perform ALL I WANT… live because she’s just A LAZY B**** !
    that has-been husband of hers is the PROBLEM of all of her recent FLOPS.

  8. FUTURESTARdelux December 4, 2010

    DID TRENT CRITICISE MARIAH?! X_X

  9. Nic December 4, 2010

    ^^^^ RIGHT!!

    I was almost POSITIVE that is was Sam writing this post…until the last sentence.

    1) I’ma need for yall to get it together
    2) Let Mariah lip synch a song if she wants to. She performs live often enough to appease her audience. She’s not only a diva, legend, icon…but a PREGNANT one at that.

    Yep.

  10. Nic December 4, 2010

    Oh…and 3) Kelly does sing live, I’m just waiting for this ‘Forever and a Day’ live rendition. The vocal performance in that song is out of this worldddd.

  11. Facts Officer December 4, 2010

    THE QUEEN!

  12. Nichole December 4, 2010

    Since when does Trent criticize Mariah? Since she lipped those songs, I will not be tuning in to watch.

    Now that she’s lipping, I am not certain on rather I am going to watch her X-Mas special or not.

  13. I love Mimi! December 4, 2010

    Go Mariah!

  14. Dave December 4, 2010

    DEAD @ the unnecessary shade @ the end when you know your fave is the QUEEN of lipping. Don’t be mad because your fave can’t catch a break CONSISTENTLY live.

  15. Dave December 4, 2010

    Dead @ Kelly lipping “Forever & a Day” twice, but she’s a big time lip singer now. Oh heavens… you are too dramatic, for no reason.

  16. 100 percent flop December 4, 2010

    She struggles to hit 500k worldwide.. Hhahahahaha

  17. Grow Up Trent December 4, 2010

    Isnt that a surprise? MoMoo has been lip-synching for at least 13 years now!

  18. Kevin December 4, 2010

    on mariahdaily, they said that mariah only lipped parts of “all i want” idk if its true though.

    whatever, shes still better than your fav, who lip synchs too.

  19. Click December 4, 2010

    Beyonce ‘s Halo (live) is 100% better !!!!

  20. RiRi4 ever December 4, 2010

    Lip-syncing…and you guys call this flake old lady ….. A DIVA ?

    *R I P*

  21. Beyonce-Stan December 4, 2010

    Mariah is no diva. When you think of diva, Diana, Barbara, Madonna, Whitney comes to mind, not Mariah. She doesn’t possess the attitude and presence these women have

    So please stop calling Mariah a diva, cause she’s not one

  22. KELENDRIA ROWLAND December 4, 2010

    The DIVA Mariah Carey and highest selling female artist sounded PHENOMENAL

    BUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUT

    she is FAT.

    Its okay tho. not everyone can be KELLY ROWLAND aka SUCCESSFUL HITMAKER with a model like body!!!!

    ~~
    Support Ms Kelly!

  23. Jeremy December 4, 2010

  25. Tia Maria December 4, 2010

    Sit down grandma, give it up….your boring and juveile song now days worth only 0.25 cents!

  26. Judge Judy December 4, 2010

    When Whitney- a real diva went on stage the whole audiences gave standing ovations.

    Mariah could scream till she pops out her lung…. but still no one would care!

    Trust me…I know who is the real diva ! 🙂

  27. FLOP< DRNUK< UGLY VEGAS SINGER December 4, 2010

    I hope she will have a miscarriage…stay home fat cow!

  28. MUSIC LOVER December 4, 2010

    I still get goosebumps watching her 2004 performance of “All I Want is You.” This legend, this icon, this diva is the greatest artist of all time after MJ. Her sales and music speak for themselves. She needs to have her baby, come back inspired, and return after a few years when real music and ballads have an actually chance of hitting #1 in this msuic dance era, in order to shut every one of your faves down!

  29. hassan December 4, 2010

    ok people who are sayin this is lipped AND WHAT? she has been singing for over 20 years… o remind me where are the singers back then…. Whitney? gone… Celine?.. gone…. Mariah? STYLL HERE MAKIN MUSIC! at the end of the day wether a song is lipped or now does it make a diffrence? no it dosent and where beyonce is ermm how old is she? when mariah was beyonce age she had more success than beyonce… would love to see beyonce at 40 years old

  30. VS December 4, 2010

    DID TRENT REALLY WRITE THIS????? WITHOUT DOING HIS RESEARCH PROPERLY?? I DONT BELIEVE THAT! TRENT IS USUALLY ONPOINT WITH ALL MARIAH NEWS…..
    THIS IS FROM A FAN WHO WAS ACTUALLY THERE…

    ‘And yes, she was actually singing! Apparently, the performances the day before were all lipped, so a lot of people were pleasantly surprised to hear Mariah singing and belting out those high notes! ‘

    ‘There were a few parts of this performance that were lipped, but for the most part she sung live’

    SMH TRENT!

  31. Enough of Garbage December 4, 2010

    Mariah is a done deal….the reason she was successful because she was married her own boss….over-played her octave voice as part of marketing strategy. The fact is she the most over-rated diva of all time.

    Plus, her #1s mostly thanks to airplay…less sales during her era. She is joke, i agree. For me just is just a marketing tool.

  32. whatever Lambs December 5, 2010

    Really classy of her ; a diva …singing at the Disneyland to save her career! Wow…is she too heavy for a radio station’s forklift ?

    LMFAO

  33. ERIC December 5, 2010

    LOL AT HOW DIFFERENT SHE LOOKS IN THE PROMO PICTURES AS SHE LOOKS IN REAL LIFE RIGHT NOW.

  34. Oh Mimi…. December 5, 2010

    A singer should NOT lipsynch. A singer is supposed to SING. Sing LIVE. A backing track – I get that. But Mariah is not a singer. I have ZERO respect for her. Sorry.

    Why don’t the lambs get it? Who wants to pay to watch a singer lipsynch her whole song when that song is available on the CD? The fact that she could start off being one of the greatest LIVE singers on the planet in the 90s – to a studio singer who either lipsynchs the whole song or use pre-recorded vocals for high notes – is just SAD.

    SAD!

  35. Oh Mimi…. December 5, 2010

    @HASSAN

    “wether a song is lipped or not does it make a difference?”

    Of course it does! Only a lunatic will think it doesn’t. I used to be a big Mariah fan but why does she continue to lipsynch? It’s really frustrating to me and so many others who used to root for her. I just can’t root for her anymore. Her pregnancy is an excuse; she’s been lipsynching for years. It’s so unprofessional as a singer/vocalist to lipsynch. The more she pretends to be young and hip the more she alienates her fan base. I’m 35 and I used to be a LAMB in the early 2000s. Mariah needs to realize that her fans are growing with her, she’s 40 years old and still trying to be “young”. I’d like to see Mariah deliver something soulful, something that sends chills down my spine – just like how she did 20 years ago. I don’t want her to pretend she can still hit those whistle notes by lipsynching. That’s a complete waste of my time – I can watch those whistle notes on her old videos. Honestly I don’t care if she can hit those Es or Cs. I just want to hear her sing – LIVE. 100% That’s why I have more respect for Whitney, who is clearly way past her prime, voice is damaged but I saw her AMA performance and the tour performances of I look to you I didn’t know my strength, etc. and I have to say she sounds like a real SINGER whose voice has matured but also gained that rich quality and soulfulness it didn’t have when she was 20. Celine – never was a fan of hers and she’s lipsynching so I’ve lost respect for her as well. For those who say lipsynching doesn’t matter – what a load of BS. Of course it matters, at least to someone who’s been a Mariah FAN since I was 14.

  36. PetraUk December 5, 2010

    I lost respect for her too. She is misguided by her own yes-maam people and delusional Lambs. She has no sense of direction and refuse to grow, artistically.

    She is over!

  37. Destiny’s Trash December 5, 2010

    Trash! Hope she commits suicide now!

  38. Bobby from Bulgaria December 6, 2010

    I think all the haters are the ones that should commit suicide as they’re living only for the hate…

    Well, some info for you – when you hate you get cancer so… , suicidal or not, you’re gonna die soon anyway… Ha ha ha… It’s not my fault, it’s yours…

  39. To Bobby December 6, 2010

    @BOBBY FROM BULGARIA

    You look like one of those delusional gay lambs. lol not that it’s wrong to be one but one of my friends is a lamb and he looks exactly like you. i almost thought you were the person i know until i saw you’re frm bulgaria. lmao

  40. Bobby from Bulgaria December 7, 2010

    Hmmm… I wonder what you look like…

    Perez Hilton??? Ha ha ha…

  41. Kindly December 8, 2010

    i love her new album, she has like the best voice i’ve ever heard.

  42. rose December 26, 2010

    I just wonder when did Mariah become bigger than Santa. I remember watching all the parades and Santa was always the grand finale. I just think it should stay that way.

  43. Praveen Kumar 9212432370 December 23, 2011

    wow so nice & good looking.
