Mariah Carey Wows Washington With ‘O Come All Ye Faithful’

Published: Saturday 18th Dec 2010 by Trent

Here is Mariah Carey’s 2nd performance at ‘Christmas In Washington’. Alongside a large choir, the vocal titan delivered a stunning rendition of ‘O Come All Ye Faithful’ for the US President and his family. Look below for the footage:

Once again Carey took things to church and back! Did you see Annie Lennox and Maxwell catching the Holy Spirit while she scaled through the octaves?

Carey is on a level by herself. I’m so moved…

Thoughts?

    That’s because Maxwell, and Annie know Mariah can saaaaang! They were so into her performance, you can tell they were both moved.

    Annie couldn’t take her eyes off of Mariah for one second. LOL.

    Great performance!

  7. TIMMI December 18, 2010

    LOVE MARIAH
    LOVE MOST of the PERFORMANCE

    But the ending was a MESS.

    🙁

  8. Kevin December 18, 2010

    omg trent your gifs

  9. Jair December 18, 2010

    It was such a great moment! She opened and closed the show! Vocally, she killed it! Even the little imperfections were perfect! She sounded great, no matter what some haters say (-cough- “Timmi”) Nothing about it was a “mess”…

  10. Nichole December 18, 2010

    ^^^Exactly. What the heck was so messy?

  11. LITTLE MARIAH December 18, 2010

    motheriah slayed all whores <33333 I LOVE MARIAH !!

  12. Minhquan Nguyen December 18, 2010

    @Nichole & Jair: I think Timmi used an unfortunate phrase to describe the ending, but in reality, you can really hear how short of breath she grew toward the end, and that forced her to make abrupt changes in pitch that were–let’s call it “inconsistent.” Overall, it was a very good performance from her, especially with her being pregnant, but if you take a step back and evaluate it, there were passages where she had some trouble. But that’s understandable and fair to say, right?

  13. TIMMI December 18, 2010

    LOL @ THESE UTTER *IMBECILES* CALLING ME A HATER

    THEY WOULD BE JAIR AND NICHOLE.

    SERIOUSLY?

    READ THE POST BEFORE THIS, WHERE I COMMENTED HOW GREAT SHE WAS ON “ONE CHILD,” BEFORE “OCAYF” GOT POSTED. INFACT, READ ALL POSTS ON THIS DAMN BLOG TAGGED WITH MARIAH CAREY, AND SEE HOW HARD I STAN FOR THE WOMAN. I’M DEAD SERIOUS, DO YOUR RESEARCH.

    Now SIT DOWN and STFU, you don’t want to go down this path.

    @Minhquan Nguyen
    There is really NO POINT in trying to explain to these dellusional idiots where I was coming from. I stan for Mariah 100% but the fact is, she DID let it slip a bit at the end, losing her voice and such. If these “die-hard” fans were such fans and watched the preview clip there is actually better footage of that bit where you see her struggling. And in parts of THIS footage posted, you can see her mouth moving but no sound coming out. THOSE are the messy parts I was referring to.

    Another fact, Mariah IS pregnant with TWINS so this CAN be excused. I never come in the post saying “OMG EVEN THO MARIAH IZ PREGNANT SHE SHOULD STILL BE ABLE TO GET THROUGH A PERFORMANCE PERFECTLY SO THIZ IZ 100% A FAIL”. In fact, I said I LOVED most of the performance but the ending was a mess. So for you, @JAIR, to come at me, and call me a hater, when I stan for the woman non-stop and had previously complimented her…

    *Antoine Dodson voice..* YOU ARE SO DUMB. YOU ARE REALLY DUMB. FO’REAL.

    You are the type of person that makes the rest of people think all of us lambs are fools.

  14. KevinLee December 18, 2010

    THE B**** IS BREATHING FOR 3 AND STILL SOUNDING AMAZING!!!!

    AMAZING!!

  15. Jasmine December 18, 2010

    I did not see anything great or spectacular about this performance. with all the hype i want my waisted 3 min back. If this is what is considered great these days then music truly has gone way downhill.

    A great performance is old school Mariah singing Joy To The World in the mid 90s, Aretha singing, Patti Labelle owning the stage, pre-crack Whitney singing Joy To The World, Donnie Hathaway performing, Luther Vandross singing Have Yourself a Merry Christmas, or Prince doing something crazy and unexpected onstage!

  16. Reply to JAsmine December 18, 2010

    Really Jasmine? Because who’s CD’s are on your ultimate playlist. Rihanna I bet, Kesha, and all those other h***.

    You’re small close minded opinion is why real music doesn’t sell. The first verse she sung, outsung every vocalist out there today with control, range, and consistency. If real music was actually bought, her xmas cd should be platinum right now, and rihanna and kesha should not be getting all these number ones.

    Grow up.

  17. Jair December 18, 2010

    @Timmi – I stan hard for MC as well. I just called you a hater cause the performance was beautiful and so heartfelt that by using the term “messy”, just makes you seem like all you care about is technicality and only pay attention to her vocals. Sure, she ran out of breath a little, but jeez, you don’t have to point it out, it’s pretty obvious. Like I said, even with little imperfections like that, the performance was perfect! By the way, don’t call me an imbecile, you don’t know me personally to call me anything! I had my reason to call you that, and please stop blowing it out of proportion. Besides, you sort of asked for it.

  18. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue December 18, 2010

    @ Reply to Jasmine:

    How about you take your own advice and grow up? Really, just because someone has an opinion you don’t agree with doesn’t mean that they’re not allowed to express it. Who are you to assume that she is a fan of Rihanna and Ke$ha because she didn’t think Mariah’s performance was good? I think you’re the one who is closed-minded by making the stereotypical cry of “waah, you’re hater cause you don’t think my fave is perfect, therefore you must have crappy taste in music”. To be honest, I don’t think this performance was great either, and I am not a fan of either Ke$ha or Rihanna. In fact, I think Mariah on her worst day ever easily shits on both of them on their best day.

    And in case you failed to read the rest of her comment, Jasmine DID say that she would’ve preferred old-school Mariah, so obviously that indicates that she doesn’t dislike her.

  19. GREG December 18, 2010

    Who parked that Fire Truck on the stage?…lol

  20. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue December 18, 2010

    Perhaps some hardcore stans need to look up the word “hater” before rudely jumping on fellow fans/stans who are a little more objective. Making a constructive criticism doesn’t qualify as “hating”.

  21. Jair December 18, 2010

    @ Greg – What’s really LOL worthy is the fact that you think your “joke” was funny. Now we know one career you should stay away from 🙂

  22. Jair December 18, 2010

    @ True Blue – It is hating since you’re focusing on what was wrong with the performance. Sure, I can watch a performance and say what was wrong with it, but that’s like stating the obvious. I’d rather keep it to myself and focus on the good. Why be a joy kill?

  23. sugarwalls December 18, 2010

    gave me chills….
    She is awesome!!!!

  24. the kiddz December 18, 2010

    The Songbird Supreme, ladies and gentlemen.

  25. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue December 18, 2010

    @ Jair:

    Constructive criticism isn’t hating, it’s an observation. If someone tells you that you messed up at something, are they hating or are they trying to help you out by pointing out your mistakes so you can improve on them?

    Use your brain. You’re not being a true fan of an artist by saying everything they do is perfect when it’s not. It’s that exact type of mentality that earns stans for certain artists the title of being delusional.

  26. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue December 18, 2010

    Not title, reputation for being delusional, sorry.

  27. TIMMI December 18, 2010

    @JAIR

    This is the COMMENT section.

    Noun
    •S: (n) remark, comment, input (a statement that expresses a personal opinion or belief or adds information) “from time to time she contributed a personal comment on his account”

    It is my personal opinion that Mariah was struggling towards the end and as this is the comment section, I have the right to be honest and post my honest COMMENT on the performance without you jumping down my throat and calling me a hater. And also, I fail to see how I was “focusing on what was wrong with the performance.” I said that I loved Mariah, I said that I loved MOST of the performance, I said that the END was a mess. That was my opinion and you do not have the right nor the power to try and tell me otherwise or critisise/label me for having/sharing it.

    If you feel the performance is amazing then a random comment on the internet should not be a “joy kill” for you. EVERY MARIAH POST on this blog has people hating, even when the performance *IS* actually perfect in all forms (THAT is what is called hating FYI….) And I don’t let it hinder my feelings about the performance or “kill my joy”, so I don’t see why my comment should kill yours. It’s very pleasant that you would rather focus on the good side of everything, but that, my darling, is not the real world and if you think everyone takes your approach to the world then you are in for a shock.

  28. Jair December 18, 2010

    @ True Blue – In this case, it can be seen as hating, since I HIGHLY doubt Mariah sits around reading what people have to say. Of course I would want someone telling me what I did wrong so I can fix it, but in this particular case, no one cares! She did a great job, so people need to stop nit-picking at little things.

  29. mgaskwater December 18, 2010

    I dont get my gurl here. PROMISE!

    2:29 – 2:35 – Goosebumps.

    She sustained so well that it was almost effortless for her.

    LURV HER!

  30. Jair December 18, 2010

    @ Timmi – Alright, I’m sorry. In response to your previous comment, I actually do find it to be a joy kill when numerous people say negative things. It is what it is, and you did focus on what was wrong with the performance. You called the end “messy”. We all heard it, and yes it was a little off, but c’mon. That’s all. You’re a fellow fan, so I shall stop now.

  31. Nichole December 18, 2010

    @ Timmi. I didn’t call you a hater, dumb-ass. I asked what was so messy about the performance. How about if you work on your reading comprehension, before calling others imbeciles.

    I don’t agree that Mariah was messy. In fact, I thought she did fantastic. At least with being short of breath, we knew she was singing live with all of the constant lip-synching accusations from naysayers.

    She did fantastic throughout this entire performance, but to each its own.

  32. Anthony The Great December 18, 2010

    On a level by herself?

    She can sing, but she ain’t never been all that (IMO). She is not a natural belter and her voice has always been really airy. Yes she does have wide range, but that doesn’t mean anything. And she has no soul, I have never ever been touched or moved by a Mariah Carey performance and she doesn’t really have any stage presence. I went to her The Adventures of Mimi concert back in 06 and all though she sounded great it was boring. She doesn’t work the stage like her diva counterparts. I mean she doesn’t have to know how to dance, but she could at least do some moving. Anita Baker, Whitney Houston(Pre-Crack), and Miki Howard in my opinion are all better vocalist than Mariah and they all have more power and soul.

    But I do disagree w/ the people who say she lip syncs. The woman obviously can sing LIVE and she does have a great technique. And she is also pregnant so to call her names like FAT-RIAH and Moo-RIAH is sooooooooooooo immature.

  33. Sho’Nuff December 18, 2010

    ^^^^^^

    SHUT UP YOU HATEN ASS F*****. YOU WISH CRACKNEY AND THOSE OTHA B****** COULD SING BETTER THAN MARIAH.

    GO CHOKE ON A D***.

  34. Anthony The Great December 18, 2010

    @Sho’Nuff

    First off,

    What does my sexuality have to do with it.

    Secondly,

    I am far from a hater. I stated my opinion, deal with it. Are you mad, because I don’t have the same viewpoints as you?

    Third,

    Crackney…

    How immature, how old are you? 12?

    Lastly,

    You are entitled to think otherwise, but to call me out of my name is flat out dumb. If I think others are better than Mariah Carey i’m entitled to that opinion. Just like you are entitled to believe she is the best singer to ever be born.

    -Boom Bye

    You have Sincerely been dismissed.

    Now move it along to the left. Thank you very much.

  35. theman December 18, 2010

    Lol Miki Howard get the hell out of here. Mariah has power, but she is melodic at the sametime. She is perhaps the most versatile female vocalist or one of them, She can do so much more than all of the other artists. What she did at the end of the performance was called improvising, and even when she did she did that consistently well. Yes this performance was AMAZING, and is technically way better than any garbage thats out now.

    As far as being constructive fine, but she’s a pro she knows what she is doing. Even when u tair it up u still have people being picky. My advice to them. GET THE FCK OVER IT !!!!!!!!!

  36. Anthony The Great December 18, 2010

    @THEMAN

    I have always loved Miki Howard’s voice for some reason and most people give me that reaction when I say I think she is better than Mariah Carey.

    No matter what Miki belts out, she does it with soulful conviction and class. And the natural raw depth in her voice give me chills every-time I hear her. But again that is my opinion.

  37. Nippy You December 18, 2010

    She is lacking of emotions..and Gold status at this point..Try again another era…. 🙁

  38. Alejandro December 18, 2010

    Of course she sounds good, look how many backup choirs she has to depend on ? She isnt dare to perform solo anymore. That tells you something..

  39. theman December 18, 2010

    Miki has a great voice, soul and power. But Mariah is something else. Vocally she is on another level.

  59. I Am…a Liar December 18, 2010

    BEYONCE CAUGHT ..LYING AGAIN !!!! PLEASE READ 🙁

    “Beyonce’s always been known as one of the most dishonest singers in the music biz, and even today, almost 15 years into her career, the lies continue like clockwork.

    Bey’s latest batch of b******* comes from her recent ‘I Am… World Tour’ DVD and recent television special. The superstar officially called the DVD her “directorial debut”, with official press releases solely naming her as producer, editor and director. She told Extra that it took her nine months to edit, and then told Nightline’s Cynthia McFadden that the only help she had was somebody who knew how to use Final Cut Pro (though she claimed she could still do the Final Cut Pro by herself).

    Beyonce may have been busy telling the world about her incredible skills as a director, but as it turns out she wasn’t the only one directing the DVD — her choreographer and creative director Frank Gatson, as well as Ed Burke, also had a hand in creating it.

    “First of all, I must say that I have been so thankful for the success of the ‘I Am…World Tour’ DVD,” Gatson told That Grape Juice in a recent interview. “To co-direct that body of work, along with Beyonce and Ed Burke…”

    So, how much did Beyonce actually even do herself?

    This isn’t the first time that Beyonce has been caught taking sole credit for other people’s work. She’s often been busted contributing one letter or word to a song, with no changes to the production or arrangement, in order to gain a writing credit, only to then claim she wrote it entirely herself – One hilarious instance saw her Dreamgirls song “Listen” being disqualified from the Academy Awards when the awards’ executive committee found there were too many co-writers on the track, and that Beyonce had contributed the least amount to the song out of everyone.

    But I digress – The “I Am… World Tour” holds another example of Beyonce’s deceitful ways. You see, one key feature of the DVD is that it not only follows Beyonce on tour, but also follows her as she treks around the globe, learning about different cultures and exploring exotic locales. One instance featured the singer making her way through a pyramid in Egypt, and then spontaneously bursting into a rendition of her song “Ave Maria”. It’s an experience that touched the singer deeply — or so she’d like us to believe.

    “This time I can appreciate how incredible this is and the history, and I try to live in the moment,” she told Nightline when speaking of her Egyptian escapades.

    “I felt like it was important to go and see the pyramids,” she admitted. “It was absolutely spiritual [and] unbelievable and it just shows human ability and power. I felt like ‘I’m not worthy, I shouldn’t be in this pyramid, this is amazing,’ and it was really beautiful because I was able to go to the top and sing.”

    Too bad it was all a publicity stunt.

    Back in November of 2009 when Beyonce was actually in Egypt, it was arranged that the country’s leading Egyptologist Zahi Hawass would show her around. Here’s what he had to say to a local newspaper when questioned about his experience with the superstar.

    “I showed her the Sphinx and I gave her a book on King Tutankhamun,” Hawass said. “She’s a stupid person and she doesn’t understand a thing and she doesn’t want to understand. She’s coming here to take pictures and that’s it.”

    Now, over one year later, Hawass’ comments about Beyonce just wanting to “take pictures” make a lot more sense with the recent release of her tour DVD and television special. It’s too bad that Beyonce only seems to enjoy learning about different cultures when she can use it to help sell her next album or concert special.

    This isn’t the first time Beyonce has been caught lying before, with Beyonce being caught lying about writing songs like “Ego”, and “Irreplaceable” .

    Beyonce’s “I Am… A Liar” DVD is instores now.

  60. Nippy You December 18, 2010

    Mariah´s promotion this week slays every 00´s mini-idol whole career. yes just in one week. I love how Trent always educates ignorant people. Seriously that voice still so special in 2010? I can´t believe it. It´s an absolutely joy!!
    And what´s the matter with Beyonce stans since the other day when her fav got exposed?? Nobody named her on here, we were just enjoying one of the best artists ever. Is it that u can´t stand tha fact nobody believes Beyonce writes or produces a f****** thing anymore while Mariah keeps making classics as ‘One Child’. Get out of here. You were schooled enough the other day

    YOU KNOW I AM TOO OLD TO BE SITTING HERE COMMENTING ON THIS BUT I HAVE TO.
    @S*** ITS BEAUTIFUL THAT YOU LOVE BEYONCE, YES SHE IS THE HOT ONE IN THE INDUSTRY TODAY. WHAT I FIND DISRESPECTFUL IS THAT YOU COMPARE MARIAH CAREY TO BEYONCE. IT DOES NOT MAKE SENSE. I AM 30YRS OLD AND AN ORIGINAL MARIAH FAN. ALSO I AM A FAN OF MUSIC AND VOCALIST. MARIAH AND BEYONCE ARE BOTH GREAT VOCALIST. HOW CAN YOU COMPARE 40YR OLD MARIAH TO BEYONCE WHO IS STILL IN HER 20’S. @S*** IF YOU EVER LOOK AT MARIAH’S 20YR OLD LIVE VOCALS SHE SINGS WITH SUCH EASE, AND SHITS ON BEYONCE. NOW MARIAH IS OLDER AND BEYONCE VOCALS ARE PURE AND YOUNG. DO YOU SEE MY POINT….YOU CANT COMPARE THE TWO. THE ONLY THING YOU CAN SAY IS THAT BEYONCE IS THE NEW HOT B****, BUT MARIAH IS LEGEND. LEGENDS DONT HAVE TO SELL, AND COMPETE. THEY ALREADY HAVE DONE THAT.
    BEYONCE IS AMAZING ON STAGE AND VOCALLY, BUT YOU ALL SEEM TO FORGET (OR JUST SO YOUNG THAT YOU DONT REMEMBER) MARIAH USED TO BE THE SAME AND NO ONE BUT WHITNEY COULD SIT HER DOWN. MY POINT IS PEOPLE, THE INDUSTRY HAS MULTIPLE TALENTED ARTIST. WE SHOULD LOVE THE FACT THAT THEY ARE HERE MAKING MUSIC FOR US AND ENJOY IT.

  70. Jamal for President LOL December 18, 2010

    I completely agree with @Jamal . Everything he said is true, except in my opinion that Mariah can still sing better than anyone (Beyonce, Christina etc.) else despite being in her 40s.

    There is just something about her voice. I don’t know whether is her tone or timbre, but everything she sings I LOVE it immidiately.

  71. Facts Officer December 18, 2010

    SLAYYYYYYYYED!!!!!

  72. Queen Ci Ci December 18, 2010

    YAWN F***** YAWN.

    THIS WAS BORING AND MY EARS HURT. THE B**** CAN’T SING NO MORE.

  73. MUSIC LOVER December 18, 2010

    I admit by the end she was out of breath, but that long belt at the end was amazing! I can’t believe people can hate on Mariah, but stan for singers like Rihanna, Katy, Ke$ha, Ciara, and even Beyonce who are ALL light years away from Mariah’s success. I’m not hating on those artists because I listen to all of them. Making those comparisons to Mariah is like a dumbass comparing CB or Usher to Michael Jackson! STUPID AND DELUSIONAL AS F***!

    When your “faves” are still in the game after 20+ years, have 18 #1s, release 13 studio albums, have more than 200 million albums sold, ACTUALLY WRITE AT LEAST 1 HIT SONG ON THEIR OWN, then come and hate on the legend that is Mariah Carey!!!!

  74. True Blue December 18, 2010

    @ S***:

    Stay pressed over Lady Gaga! 😀

  75. Yolanda December 18, 2010

    Mariah voice sounds screechy.. plus she sounds exhausted at the end.

    Kudoz to the choir….they save her performance !!!

  76. Retire December 18, 2010

    REGARDLESS…CHRISTMAS II YOU….. FLOPS ….WORSE THAN GLITTER & MEMOIRS !

    TAKE A REST ! 🙁

  77. MissImpartial December 18, 2010

    @S***

    NO BIG MIMI FAN BUT VOCALLY SHE SHITS ON BEYONCE.
    WHERE WERE YOU WHEN BEYONCE WAS EXPOSED FOR BEING A LIAR. LOL

  78. Queen of Christmas Susan Boyle December 18, 2010

    nothing could save this album…please waste your time, Trent

    LMFAO

  79. Bye Bye Booriah December 18, 2010

    2 more weeks…Mariah will leave us with another flop album- the worst in this decade.

    Happy New Year, ya’ll Lambs.

  80. JAYLA December 18, 2010

  81. True Blue December 18, 2010

    @ Miss Impartial:

    You can go over to that post and see most of us debunk your allegations that hold no water. But keep trying, though. ;

  82. MissImpartial December 18, 2010

    @TRUE BLUE

    NO ONE DEBUNKED MY ALLEGATIONS AS MOST OF THE BEE STANS WERE IN HIDDING.LOL

    YOU RIGHT THEY DON’T HOLD WATER BECAUSE THEY THEY ARE FACTS BACKED BY EVIDENCE.

  83. True Blue December 18, 2010

    @ Miss Impartial:

    Did you even read the comments? Plenty of fans and stans alike pretty much shut your theory down. If you say otherwise, then you’re just in self-denial.

  84. RIP December 18, 2010

    She is a done deal cause this album is flopping hard just like …

    Glitter,
    Charmbracelet,
    E=mc2
    Memoirs !!!!

    🙁

  85. MissImpartial December 18, 2010

    @TRUE BLUE

    THE ONLY TWO STANS I WAS COMMENTING WITH WERE BLASIAN AND JEFFREY. YOU CAN GO BACK TO THE ARTICLE REREAD IT. I THINK YOU ARE IN SELF DENIAL. IF IT WOULD BE TRUE I WOULD ACCEPT IT.

    AND HOW WERE THOSE THEORIES? AND NO-ONE SHUT THEM DOWN MORE LIKE THE TRUTH HURTS.

    AND ARE YOU SAYING AS YOU HAVE RESPONDED TO MY COMMENT THAT BEE IS BETTER VOCALIST THE MARIAH.

  86. Tea Amelea December 18, 2010

    Looking forward for her next….perfume !

    *DEAD*

  87. Queen of Flop Carey December 18, 2010

    IT’S OFFICIAL: MARIAH’S NEW ALBUM—————-> A F L O P !

    LMFAO

  88. True Blue December 18, 2010

    @ Miss Impartial:

    Funny, in your previous posts you said nothing about Blasian and Jeffrey, just the stans IN GENERAL. And yeah, we pretty much shut you down, but if telling yourself otherwise makes you happier, then so be it.

    And since you insist on knowing my opinion, yes I do feel that she is a better vocalist than Mariah. Happy to know that?

  89. Nichole December 18, 2010

    Only delusional Bey stans would say she’s a better vocalist than Mariah.

    That is certainly one thing Beyonce herself definitely would not agree with, especially since she tried adopting Mariah’s vocal runs and she is the reason why Bey wanted to become a singer.

    I am not fan of Bey’s, I know she can sing but I’m not delusional, either.

  90. MissImpartial December 18, 2010

    WHO IS “WE”. COULD YOU ELABORATE PLEASE. AS I SWEAR I DID NOT POST ANY COMMENT TO YOU? SO WHO ARE THESE MYSTERIOUS STANS WHO SHUT ME DOWN. AND WITH WHAT ARGUMENTS. I AM QUITE INTRIGUED AS I HAVE JUST BEEN ON THE ARTICLE.

  91. WorldWideWaddie.com December 18, 2010

    Mariah did a good job, but it was not a WOW performance. I miss the 1990’s vocals of Mariah.

  92. True Blue December 18, 2010

    @ Nichole:

    It’s my opinion, which I do not attempt to pass off as fact. That’s hardly delusional.

    @ Miss Impartial:

    Play dumb, then.

  93. MissImpartial December 18, 2010

    @TRUE BLUE

    AS YOU HAVE NO ANSWERS TO MY QUESTIONS. I SEE I SHUT YOU DOWN AS YOU HAVE NO BACK UP.

  94. skylynx December 19, 2010

    Very good performance, actually had she sung with Patricia here (with the choir) they would’ve tore the roof of. I prefered the CBS special performanmce more because the transition during the middle of the song where she scales high is clearer and stronger. However, i think this arranagement with the backing choir would sound better live.

    BTW – what was Maxwell Annie and the two artist standing on stage for if they weren’t singing? Seems awkward for them.

  95. BENJAMIN December 19, 2010

    Good, I was getting worried about her voice, but it seems like she is starting to take better care of it.

  96. the kiddz December 19, 2010

    @True Blue

    Mariah may be better in regards of technique, but I prefer Bee anyday. So, I’m with you on that one.

  97. Gucci December 19, 2010

    Keep stanning for Mariah and this Christmas album. Let’s just ignore the fact that Glee and Jackie Evancho’s Christmas album have snatched and re-snatched cowry’s wig.

  98. Tru Voice December 19, 2010

    She did OK. Would’nt say I was moved But she held her own respectively. Trent, Sometimes you reach too much With Mimi. She did some High Notes that ere good but I din’t wanna run around my house saying “thank you Lord.” Was she whispering at the end and throughout? I HATE when she does that. She sounds better singing straight through.

  99. antertain December 19, 2010

    Mariah has definately found her voice again!!

    Would’ve been Epic if she really finished off the song how she usually does BUT like i said she has found her voice again and it’s great to hear.

  100. TRUe VOCALS!!! December 19, 2010

    UMM She was lip singing the whole 2nd half thats why there was not that many close up shoots but she did good but def not mariah classic 1xmas album worthy but good.

  101. John December 19, 2010

    How can anybody think Beyonce is a better vocalist than Mariah?? OMG I´m with the person who said that is like comparing Chris or Usher to michael Jackson, not in a million years darlings! Beyonce is only a better entertainer, vocals and music? Hell no!

    Also I´m with @MissImpartial that anybody was able to shut down a f****** thing about the article where Beyonce was exposed. In fact, I commented on that post many times and I never received a single response with some type of argument. Only people trying to bring mariah and others down. They didn´t understand what the issue was and that the girl got exposed

    And again, this and specially One Child (Mariah´s own creation with a new collaborator) slayed everybody else. The last diva left as explained in this article:

    5.) She reminds us of what a diva is, and why she’s the last one standing
    What’s a diva? Lady Gaga is not a diva. Rihanna is not a diva. A diva is a larger-than-life personality, yes; a woman with charisma beyond measure, but more than anything, she’s a voice, and above all, THE voice. She doesn’t need fancy stage setups, props, pyrotechnics, elaborate costumes, or statement music videos. She doesn’t need to be racy or controversial or reference obscure art scenes and design influences. For the true diva, it’s just her and the microphone, standing on stage, singing her heart out and in turn making yours jump right out of your chest. Mariah is not by any means the only diva, but she’s definitely the only still-relevant, functional diva. Dear Whitney’s been in and out of rehab and reality television, while Cher and Celine have (for the most part) been hiding out in Vegas. Meanwhile, the young crop of power voices are busy running around with their heads chopped off trying to rule the word. By the way, Lady Gaga may have created a strong army of loyal “Little Monsters,” but Mariah Carey had given her fans a pet name way before it was cool, affectionately referring to her following as her “lambs.”

    For now, though, Mariah Carey sits happily atop the Diva throne, reminding everyone that not many people can captivate and command an audience without moving an inch quite like her and that sometimes less is more. Except when it comes to glitter, bling and falsettos. In that case, more is always more.

    THANK YOU FOR YOUR SANE COMMENT.

    No worries!!! Sometimes is good to educate ignorants

  104. Morevocalz December 19, 2010

    I think its funny how some these idiots deemed Mariah a flop because of the sales of her christmas album. You idiots, its not like its an actual album. For a christmas album and considering the lack of people who buy music these days (especially christmas music) , she is doing pretty damn good. For you info, EMC2 went platinum and memoirs went gold! In today’s world thats pretty damn good. You got people like C error that cant sell over 30 k now and days. Also, do you think Mariah really gives a damn about her sales for this album? Please! Homegirl is PAID. She releasing albums for fun! She has nothing to prove to all these other chick thats are out now. She has been there and done that. So you beyonce stans or whoever need to stop coming for Mariah. Yall always hating!

  105. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue December 19, 2010

    @ TheKiddz:

    Weird how we think alike sometimes. 😉

    @ John:

    It’s called an OPINION, you idiot. Do you know what that is? I have every right to think that Beyoncé is a better vocalist than Mariah. You don’t like that, well too bad. I’m not required to share the same tastes as you. Oh, and many logical arguments were presented to debunk your claims that Beyoncé is a “thief”. You just chose to ignore them. Not everyone in that post picked on Mariah to make a point. Do you know how many singers take credit for contributing very little to an actual song? It’s a standard industry practice. Not something illegal and unique to Beyoncé. You gonna pick on her for that, then you should pick on all the pop stars out there. Otherwise, it just looks like you have something personal against Beyoncé.

    @ Miss Impartial:

    You should really consider changing your name.

  106. say what December 20, 2010

    fantastic, none to compare too. in a class of her own…. the end.

    PERFECT! PERFECT! PERFECT!

  110. ranjeet January 10, 2011

    To set things into perspective, Mariah Carey may well probably be the best singer since Aretha Franklin.

    However, it is widely argued, by professional music knowers, that Whitney Houston is genuinely her equal.

    Everyone else is secondary and for me, irrelevant.
    These two ladies will forever be THE VOICE in the history of music.

    While Carey does not have the other’s power,falsetto ,
    Houston lacks the other’s musicianship,range and the sheer ability to warble.

    Equals and forever the best singers of all time or tied in at the 2nd place atleast.

  111. Isaac March 20, 2011

    Mariah carey is the best there ever was to grace this planet. i know that is a debate in some cases but thats my opinion and im entiteld to it!! peace and love to all 🙂
