Watch: Mariah Carey Soars With Rockeller Christmas Performance

Published: Friday 30th Nov 2012 by Sam

As earlier reported, festive diva Mariah Carey illuminated New York’s Rockefeller Center this week when she performed at the annual Christmas Tree Lighting event.

At time of writing, only fan footage had hit the net. Yet, last night saw the 42 year old’s renditions of ‘All I Want For Christmas’ and ‘Christmas Time Is In The Air Again’ air on NBC. As reported, ‘Christmas Time’ is being pushed in support of Mariah’s second Holiday LP ‘Merry Christmas II You’ – which is being re-released this year after first impacting the charts in 2010.

Watch Mimi soar below…

Via our friends at Mariah Daily:

While the years have shaved off some of the “effortless” from Mariah’s vocal delivery, her voice holistically remains one of the best in the game.

Needless to say, we can’t wait to hear her new material – which should be arriving early next year in time for American Idol. (Let’s pretend ‘Triumphant’ never happened).

    Mariah IS the best singer in the game.

    She sings better than 99% of these so-called singers today.

    Amazing. And I´ve watched 2 or 3 different takes she did of the song, and she sounded phenomenal all everytime and doing a different belt each time. True great

    And Sam really now “mariah´s voice remains one of the best in the game”??? Did you forget you were saying 2 months ago her voice had officially died?? So glad there are days when you see the light and say about Mariah what she deserves

  9. Bey Fan November 30, 2012

    It started off a little shakey…. but her voice is one of the greatest.

    I dont like her dress at all. Her face was gorgeous, as usual, but that dress was not flattering to her figure.

    But most important is the talent. And she wins in that department….hands down.

    • mr.m November 30, 2012

      & Your fav could never 🙂
      deal .. bye

      • Bey Fan November 30, 2012

        My fave is no Mairah Carey when it comes to vocal talent, sells, and icon status……. never said she was. So whats your point?

        That doesn’t change the fact that she started off shakey, and that I dont like the dress.

  10. Beyonce’s Weave November 30, 2012

    She is so fat. Moo Moo better realize she is not eating for three anymore. The gym is your friend gurl and eating a salad every now and then won’t kill you. I want slim s*** mi mi back.

    • IDK November 30, 2012

      lol! I wouldnt of said it as harsh as you did but you’re right tho. Everyone saying she’s losing weight but she kinda still looks plump to me. She re do need to go back to her MIMI days/ MC squared. She was at her all time best then. I dont wanna call her fat but she’s far from slim goody tho.

    • MC (Benron’s #1 stan) November 30, 2012

      Ignorance is bliss, I guess.

  11. Monstarebel (THE UNAPOLOGETIC PRINCE) November 30, 2012

    Just amazing omg her voice is so phenomenal….definitely one of the best singers in the music industry

  12. mr.m November 30, 2012

    YAAAAAS :\ well well well
    Wonderful performance!! I loved it . love her low register <3
    she sounded so great that I thought it was per-recorded ..
    until she messed up a bit in that high note in the end 🙂
    It still sounded amazing ..
    but lets be real, she didn't do any CRAZY high notes
    to tell her voice it back to its 90's sound lol
    some ppl "stans" got so excited .. BUT I understand 😀
    ANYWAY, that was a beautiful performance .. gotta give her dat

    NOW ALL I NEED FROM Mimi is BALLADS .. just sing ballads
    I don't want any flop hip/hop sound gurrrr .. this is what you should sound

    Xtina and Mariah can bury Adele alive if the sang soulful ballad records

    • Monstarebel (THE UNAPOLOGETIC PRINCE) November 30, 2012

      Well atleast you give credit when it’s due…..

    • MC November 30, 2012

      My eyes are deceiving me? I cannot believe this……the world is really ending.

  13. MC November 30, 2012

    Imperial Songbird Supreme did a beautiful job. I want these vocals on her next album + amazing songs a la Butterfly, Emancipation, Daydream, etc…..

    So much love for Mimi these days on this site….what is going on?

    I really don’t know what Mariah went through when she had those iffy vocal periods BUT she defo back on her vocals properly.

    I was not feeling that time when she would chop her words and seem to struggle through the songs and I LOVE me some Mariah!!!

    THIS IS MARIAH “DIVA” CAREY RIGHT HERE. Fluent, classy, sweet vocals & just smooth. No need to over sing when it is not needed and she SLAYED.
