Watch: Mariah Carey Performs On ‘Good Morning America’ Summer Concert Series

Published: Friday 24th May 2013 by Sam

Today saw Mariah Carey kick off the Good Morning America ‘Summer Concert Series’ — diva style.

Backed by a full band, the ‘#Beautiful’ singer rocked the crowd of thousands with her latest hit (bringing along guest Miguel). Premium Mimi also gave a nostalgic nod to her catalogue of classics, performing ‘Always Be My Baby’ and ‘We Belong Together’.

How did she fare? The answer awaits after the jump!

Hmm…

We love us some Mimi, but no, no, and no to those vocals. It’s “Mariah”, so even on her worst day,  rare moments of brilliance will shine through. However, in one too many instances here, she sounded like she was gargling concrete. Again, we adore Mariah as much as the next, yet we’re dealing with facts here — her voice wasn’t up to par.

Interestingly, Ms. Carey-Cannon now has this consistent habit of blaming the sound, her mic, or her dress for the so-so’ness of her modern-day performances. However, the more she tries to conceal this with a giggle and a laugh, the more apparent her performing “issues” become.

Harsh sounding? Perhaps. Yet when, like Mimi, you throw your hat into the rat race that is today’s charts, the said artist opens themselves up for the same critique everyone else gets. As such, for yours truly, the inevitable “she has nothing left to prove” BS is just that…BS.

Here’s hoping future showings get better from here on out!

Update: Check out the performance of ‘We Belong Together’ below. Much better, but we’re gonna need Mimi to stop clowning with that lip-synched climax. Or at least be less with obvious with it. Kai.

Your thoughts?

      I loved it!

    • Ballsy May 24, 2013

      Whenever people talk crap about Mariah I just tell them “Her voice registers 5 Octaves when will yo fav?”

      • Fifi May 24, 2013

        We Belong Together and Always Be My Baby were really good. 🙂

      • DaSTARKIDD May 24, 2013

        Exactly I was there and she did sing live. The audio is behind in this video smh…But like you said she sings 5 octaves and it was 54 degrees outside and early in the morning your voice doesn’t fully wake itself up until 12pm so good job Mariah!

      • DaSTARKIDD May 24, 2013

        Exactly I was there and she did sing live. The audio is behind in this video smh…But like you said she sings 5 octaves and it was 54 degrees outside and early in the morning your voice doesn’t fully wake itself up until 12pm so good job Mariah!

  2. Rose’ May 24, 2013

    You have got to be kidding me?! Did u watch/hear “we belong together’?? I think not, because that was incredible…So rather than searching for the first video on youtube, take some time to do some research and post her other performances.

    • XXX May 24, 2013

      so you mean skip the horrible parts and only show the good ones?

      As much as I love Mimi…her performances during the last years have all been so so…

      • XXX May 24, 2013

        Why are you using my name?

      • XXX May 24, 2013

        Cause I’m using it since two years… and maybe cause XXX is not as creative as we thought

      • XXX May 24, 2013

        >:(

      • Ballsy May 24, 2013

        lol the X’s are speaking to each other

      • Rose’ May 25, 2013

        Noooo, What I meant was that the writer should have actually given an all around honest appraisal of all three her performance. Not just one, that was exceedingly harsh and unfair.

  3. Micks May 24, 2013

    The performance with Miguel was terrible smh.

  4. Taylor May 24, 2013

    It appears she was supposed to mime those whistle tones and sound was supposed to turn her mic off at that point.

    She’s going to ruin her vocal chords if she tries to hit whistle tones she can’t hit anymore.

    Oops…

    • Gabriel May 24, 2013

      Real true…

  5. Gabriel May 24, 2013

    Bad, bad bad vocals, bad performance…
    Mariah was better, now she can’t performance…
    Different of J.Lo and Kylie who gets older and better, more beautiful with the time.
    I love Mariah’s voice (only the voice ’cause I can’t stand her “diva” behavior) but Her performances are becoming each day worse…

    • Fifi May 24, 2013

      LMAO @ J-Ho becoming a better performer/singer. NEVER Only thing that HO is good for is f****** a new dude every 6 months.

      • FAF May 24, 2013

        Ok. But this “JHo” thing is getting tired & played.. We get it. She was married 3x & engaged twice Moving on…

        WBT was good, but everything else <<<

    • Karen May 24, 2013

      Agreed, I love her voice but I can’t stand her diva behavior and flipping that hair like she is just so IT.

  6. HausMuthaAdele May 24, 2013

    Simply horrid. You can’t say you’re a Queen and want respect but do nothing to show WHY you deserve it when you sing horribly like this.

    • JOHNVIDAL May 24, 2013

      Adele´s oscars performance was a complete letdown and that talented woman has been resting her voice for two years non stop and is at her total peak. See? you should leanr to not be so hard on true legends

  7. DRB May 24, 2013

    ABMB and WBT were fine. For once, the end of WBT wasn’t lipped.

    The last one, she just needed to stay in her husky mid range cause her sleepy as was not able to go there

  8. Mimi May 24, 2013

    Still the queen! love the performance. nevertheless! support #beautiful everyone.

  9. Meena Mathers May 24, 2013

    I like mariah but the beautiful performance wasnt good …

  10. XtinaaLovee May 24, 2013

    Tired washed up & basic tbh.

  11. Savannah May 24, 2013

    Ugh. Why does she sing like shes out of breath now? Her vocals are NOWHERE near where they used to be. She sounds better than she did a few years back, but I’m still not impressed. Her dress popping was the highlight of the performance. Sorry.✌

  12. Yaz May 24, 2013

    Mariah, stop with corny hand gestures. Everyone knows you aint singing live. That was a mess.

    • lexi May 24, 2013

      Yes, the hand waving is getting annoying because she doesn’t sing like she use too.

      • FAF May 24, 2013

        ^ Thank u!! That calls attention to her lipping bc when she waves, I pay more attention to her mouth. If she stopped being so extra, she could get away with miming..

    • Rose’ May 25, 2013

      Ain’t singing live?? At what point was she not singing live? She ALWAYS does those hand gestures, usually if she lips she puts her head down, and puts her hand right in front of her face. I have many mariah videos, and you really can tell when she lips.

      • FELICIA May 26, 2013

        Thank you Rose, I was at that show and I was standing only a few feet from the stage, looking right at Mariah and I can tell you for a fact that Mariah was singing live all the time.

  13. Todd May 24, 2013

    She looks AMAZING, WBT was EPIC and LIVE ! Shady guys, u should’ve waited for the HQ versios.

  14. DOSSOME May 24, 2013

    I’m going to focus on the positive here,the WBT and ABMB performances were amazing and I won’t sit here feeling entitled to crucify her for the bad performance when she gave 2 brilliant ones the same day…colour me delusional,but Mariah always makes up for her bad performances and as a fan, i will always support her even if all her performances were horrible….All I know is ,if i want to hear 90’s vocals,i’ll go to listen to her 90’s records…if i want Mariah the Artist,I have BUTTERFLY AND TEOM & If i want a lyrical masterpiece,then CHARMBRACELET is it…#BEAUTIFUL could’ve been better but you slayed WBT and ABMB Mariah.CONGRATULATIONS MY QUEEN

    • Miss M May 24, 2013

      Honey. It was a mess. Point Blank Period.

  15. Theman May 24, 2013

    “WBT” & “ABMB” we’re great, “Beautiful” was quite rushed. She did a great job with her first two performances. But this site is weak. Get over it..

  16. truth(icki’s B**** ASS STANS can EAT ME honey!! Yall b**** is a STANK P**** FLOP chile! (puckers lips like Drake)) May 24, 2013

    DEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAADDDD AT SAM SHADE HONEY!!! ROFLMAO!!! SAM YOU SHADEY B****!!!! LOLOLOLOLOL!!!!!!!!!

    • truth(icki’s B**** ASS STANS can EAT ME honey!! Yall b**** is a STANK P**** FLOP chile! (puckers lips like Drake)) May 24, 2013

      GARGLING CONCRETE!!!!!!!!! DEEEEAADDD!!!!!!!!

  17. Rudys L4L May 24, 2013

    I was at this concert today and to be honest it was a million times better in person.. She sounded amazing!! I wish they showed her performing always be my baby cause she slayed. #beautiful performance was amazing as well, I wish you would’ve shown the high-notes cause they were angelic.. One last thing, THE VOICE IS REAL SO STOP HATING!!!!
    Ya’ll wish ya could sing half as good

  18. jaqub May 24, 2013

    it’s so boring. You always have so much to say about MC. Everytime she sings live everyone’s like she’s lipsynching. WBT and ABMB were totally live! and were AMAZING #B was a mess. MARIAH IS THE BEST. But I guess you’re right – SCREAMING BEYONCE is much better… good luck!

    • Rach May 24, 2013

      What does Beyoncé have to do with it. Its not her fault her GMA performance was much better.

    • Hive May 24, 2013

      Beyonce >>>> Uglyriah

  19. just sayin May 24, 2013

    1st of all this site is no Mariah fans. That was not as horrible as you all claim. ABMB & WBT were live and good. #BEAUTIFUL seemed it needed more rehearsal time but she only mimed the high notes (whistle) other than that I heard Mariah and not someone gargling concrete. That’s reaching. As a singer I was pleased w/ her vocals. stop hating just to make other artist look better. Her voice is what it is, she still can sing.

  20. King B>Rihanna May 24, 2013

    no shade no hate

    WBT was amazing

    but

    #Beautiful was horrible, especially the last few notes.

  21. Super Cisus May 24, 2013

    LMAO she sounded a mess!!!!!!!!

  22. Miss M May 24, 2013

    Lmao. The whistle note part #BUSTED!

  23. Bow Down May 24, 2013

    Lmao that beautiful performance was horrible.

  24. Queen Barb May 24, 2013

    Bahahahahahahahahaha that was bad…. The b**** just needs to hang it up already

    • Daydreamin May 24, 2013

      Find Beautiful on iTunes and then find High School. Keep in mind High School was performed at the Billboard Awards.

      • Fifi May 24, 2013

        LMAO Exactly !! I saw Icky Garbage at the Billboard awards. Now THAT was a bad performance.

  25. DOSSOME May 24, 2013

    When Mariah does a good job Samantha either accuses her of lipsynching or blatantly refuses to post it…When she does a bad job,Sam won’t even bother to wait for the HQ version to bash her…It is what it is

    • MC May 24, 2013

      !!

      He didn’t even post about #Beautiful reaching Top 20 lol

      He posts when Beyonce + Elija or whatever reaches #50 on iTunes though.

      Mariah slayed WBT and ABMB and they were both completely live. She struggled with #Beautiful though, she needed to work on performing that song.

  26. IRISYU77 May 24, 2013

  27. BeyonceSLAYS_ May 24, 2013

    Mariah Is DONE. What Is This S***?
    Beyonce Would NEVER. #QueenBEY #BowDOWNBitches

  28. MariahIsMusic1 May 24, 2013

    Í love her so much. This was amazing not her best but it was amazing. Okay now yall can start hating so predictable. The Queen Slayed yall should bow down and Worship Queen mariahs vocals. I live for you mimi beautiful performance.

  29. Music May 24, 2013

    I’m glad her and xtina are thin again.

  30. Rach May 24, 2013

    I love Mariah but no.

  31. Roger May 24, 2013

    We Belong Together was entirely live. Author needs to get his ears checked. Also, post an updated video of #Beautiful because this one doesn’t show the entire performance (or the whistle riffs at the end).

  32. Music May 24, 2013

    American Idol performance was better even tho it was lip synced. Still love her tho.

  33. Monstarebel May 24, 2013

    Well she looks fabulous and she wasn’t that bad people she’s 47 still doing her thing so props to her!

    • Monstarebelsboo May 24, 2013

      Mariah is not 47 lolololol she’s 43

      • Jessie May 24, 2013

        Shade.

  34. loverbouy2x May 24, 2013

    she should just sing #beautiful in full voice next time around. stop trying to do too much her voice is not like it was before there is no need to stretch it to its limit.

    • Fifi May 24, 2013

      Agreed.

  35. Theman May 24, 2013

    Beyonce lips plenty of parts in her music. Her voice isn’t that spectacular.. Mariah did a wonderful job with her first two performances. No one takes Sam serious. He writes these long extensive articles for MC, but excuses everyone else..This site loves to overexaggerate. There was no post on how her new single is out charting most females out there. When she does a great job, Sam is still tripping. Lame !!

    • Hive May 24, 2013

      Wtf does Beyonce have to do with this? Shes never sounded a mess like Mariah has not my fault her voice has become non existent kiiii

      • Fifi May 24, 2013

        Because TGJ/SAM never calls out Beyoncé for lip sync b*******. She lips all the time.

      • #BeyIndependent May 24, 2013

        Beyonce doesn’t lip sync f**

  36. Sass May 24, 2013

    Why are people bringing up Beyonce? It has nothing to do with her lol. Insecure much?

    • RoyalKev May 24, 2013

      They always do!

  37. Sass May 24, 2013

    Anyway I liked her WBT performance. Not her #Beautiful unfortunatley.

  38. just sayin May 24, 2013

    TGJ stop posting videos of people recording with their phones in front of the tv. It sounds retarded because of that. What type of low budget post? HD PLEASE OR DONT POST AT ALL #HATERSTGJ

  39. Pour It Up May 24, 2013

    Ewwwwwww this was horrible. How you gonna let Miguel be better than you on your own song?

  40. JOHNVIDAL May 24, 2013

    Damn Sam is pressed LOLOL
    This time you sounded too aggresive man

  41. Pour It Up May 24, 2013

    If this was anyone else you lambs would go in. But because its Mariah you have all the excuses known to man kind.

  42. Daydreamin May 24, 2013

    She did great with WBT and ABMB. And those were totally sung live. Beautiful wasn’t that great but overall she did fine. People forget that she’s not in her prime anymore. Most singer’s voices fade out as they get older.

  43. Mark111 May 24, 2013

    She’s such a goof ball. I can’t hate she did well. The goats can’t come for anyone for now on, but I can respect that she sang LIVE… this time.

  44. Hive May 24, 2013

    Mariah get a vocal coach or something b**** you & Xtina just sound a hot s***** mess lately.

    • veo May 24, 2013

      Her $500 Million saids she don’t need no f****** coach!!!

  45. Barb B**** May 24, 2013

    AHAHAHA THE LAMBS KNOW THIS WAS BAD. You have people like Celine Dion and Pattie Labelle that can still hold a note. Just face it Mariah is #Over.

  46. Fifi May 24, 2013

    I am a forever Lamb, since 1990. This is TWO performances in a row that I have been embarrassed over. She needs a new team/manager to spice up her stage show. I get that she isn’t a dancer, and I’m fine with that. But, if you’re gonna stand there and sing, you better S-I-N-G b**** ! This was awful. She should’ve WOWED people (in a good way) with this performance of #Beautiful to the point everybody was buying it today. But she missed that opportunity with this bad performance.

    • Fifi May 24, 2013

      P.S. I love Mariah, God knows I do. Please MC, get it together !!

  47. Barb B**** May 24, 2013

    DEAD AT ‘GARGLING CONCRETE’

  48. #BeyIndependent May 24, 2013

    Idk why Mariah fans are mad at Beyonce its not BEYONCES fault Mariah no longer can sing lolololololol

    Miguel s*** ass was the best past of this s***** mess of a performance tbh.

    • Fifi May 24, 2013

      It’s not Mariah’s fault Beyoncé never really could sing. No control, horrible tone etc.

      • Barb B**** May 24, 2013

        Lies! No control? Beyonce? Lmaooo I love how pressed the lambs are.

      • Savannah May 24, 2013

        You, my friend are DELUSIONAL. Beyonce has no control? LMAO she’s one of the best technical vocalists out there lmao GOODBYE

      • Bey Fan May 24, 2013

        No control??? Beyonce? Are you serious? You might like her tone…you might think her voice is weak…but you gotta admit that she has great control…

  49. JOHNVIDAL May 24, 2013

    She´s looking spectacular. Speciallt in the #Beautiful performance she looked at least 10 years younger

    • Blue Ivy Carter-Rodriguez May 24, 2013

      Her performance was bad but I’m sure Mariah was having a bad day. Still biased I see… a damn shame.

  50. beelzebub May 24, 2013

    She looks good for her age but these live appearances make it obvious that she gets photo/video shopped to death in her videos. Shame after all these years she still seems awkward on stage.

  51. DOSSOME May 24, 2013

    It’s rising on US ITUNES lolololol….BOTH STANDARD AND EXPLICIT VERSIONS kiiiiiii….

    • JOHNVIDAL May 24, 2013

      I know. They are truly pressed. We Belong Together was so damn great. #Beautiful not so much… but it still climbing on itunes as we speak. It´s killing them 🙂

  52. Barb B**** May 24, 2013

    I cant at these lambs. If this was Xtina yall would drag ha! And your pressed selves even bringing up Beyonce who tore up her GMA performance and can f****** still song. The Lambs are like their fave.
    Insecure and Bitter.

    • Barb B**** May 24, 2013

      ***still sing***

    • JOHNVIDAL May 24, 2013

      Why are u using every single female out there but your fave to try to downplay Mariah Carey? lol

      • Barb B**** May 24, 2013

        Because its relevant to this post fool! Nicki aint a singer so why would I use her?

      • JOHNVIDAL May 24, 2013

        yeah yeah righ… lol
        Go listen to We Belong Together again hun 🙂 (I know you´re doing it anyway)

  53. GaGa 4 GaGa May 24, 2013

    Mariah fans = Delusional

  54. JOHNVIDAL May 24, 2013

    These videos are total crap. I hope Sam updates later on with better quality. I have only watched We Belong Together and it sounded pretty amazing and live to me, especially for that hour in the morning for such a complex and fragile and gentle voice as Mariah´s

  55. Jessie May 24, 2013

    If the performance were that good. You would be able to tell no matter how bad quality the videos are. Just Saying.

  56. credits May 24, 2013

    Indeed this was not great but it is a huge step up from her “touch my body” fiasco a few summers back. On “always be my baby” she was definitely executing those few low notes well. Maybe it’s time she realizes her limits and works within them. I have no doubt that she can still pull them off in the studio after a few tries but if it is not going to work live then….

  57. Lil Mo Stan May 24, 2013

    I always thought Beyonce was a better vocalist then Mariah i think her voice is overrated

  58. MariahIsMusic1 May 24, 2013

    You will always be my baby… She slayed it. My song

  59. JOHNVIDAL May 24, 2013

    Are these people serious? (Sam mainly). Always be my Baby was do damn good too and live. Plus she had a great attitude the whole time

  60. OhLawd May 24, 2013

    You guys must be deaf and blind. Her performance were all live. Pay attention closely. And of course grapejuice is going to put Mariah down, Sam is obsessed with Nicki Minaj. Get a life! Good job MC… 100% live!

  61. Music May 24, 2013

    Obviously beyonce has a good voice if ppl find a need to bring her up. She’s still young and keeping her voice in shape everyday.
    MC has been doing this for 20 years so obviously it’s not gonna be as crisp on the notes as a long time ago.
    She’s paid her dues. Great things don’t last forever. But it’s not like she completely forgot how to sing.
    No need to compare singers all the time. Just appreciate all the wonderful things MC has done in music.
    More than ur faves.

  62. MariahIsMusic1 May 24, 2013

    If I was a Nicki Minaj stan I wouldn’t be commenting. Knowing that my fave is copy and paste. Lil Kim invented this w****. So barbs shouldn’t be in this post.

  63. JOHNVIDAL May 24, 2013

    Ok who the hell is going to believe the likes/dislikes in this site are not fake when all the comments in this post have like the common +1, +5, -2, etc and then 3 particular comments have -40 and things like that? And they weren´t even made among the first ones?
    You need to fix this Sam. Between this and you Mariah bashing you´re loosing more and more credibility. Either that or this Nicki Minaj fan who post under different names has no life and find a way to extra vote some comments…

    • JOHNVIDAL May 24, 2013

      LOLOLOL I mean what a joke. Sam get it together please

    • POP ROYALTY (Bohemian Grove) May 24, 2013

      I’m rolling in the floor for real , OMFG !!!

      😆 😆 😆

      Did mariah hit a nerve , @sam ?

      OMG.

    • Daydreamin May 24, 2013

      Holy cow 650 dislikes

      • JOHNVIDAL May 24, 2013

        It´s so fake! lol They reached -650 an hour ago… and now they don´t move at all right? lololol

    • MC May 24, 2013

      Sam is not gonna lose any credibility, he never had it to begin with. No one person uses this site as reference, this blog is the pit of jokes and it isn’t even funny.

      The only time they ever had credibility was before they lost a certain well informed blogger lol

      • JOHNVIDAL May 25, 2013

        LOL the other one is so much better. He can be biased at times like everybody else. But he really informs

  64. King B>Rihanna May 24, 2013

    this post could have been less messy if the Lambs just admit that Mariah did not sound that good.

    • JOHNVIDAL May 24, 2013

      Again trying to blame a group of people for nothing? Isn´t everybody saying #Beautiful is like a mess including Mariah fans?
      If anybody did the most it was Sam (and the two typical haters of course)

  65. Bey Fan May 24, 2013

    I dont think she sounded very well…. but she is MARIAH…legendary, iconic, with album sells to match.

    Nothing will take away from what she has accomplished and how talented she is. But these performances were not good

  66. eric May 24, 2013

    I don’t think she was prepared for “Beautiful”, but I thought “Always Be My Baby” (the song that first made me a Mariah fan) was very good. Her voice may not sound like it used to and may not hold up as well, but it’s less husky than several years ago.

  67. Taytayhooray May 24, 2013

    Beyonce has a better voice then Mariah carey? That’s the funniest joke I’ve ever heArd beyonce is know for lip syncing. Did she ge caught just this year making head lips? Useless b**** lol

  68. Taytayhooray May 24, 2013

    Umm…Beyonce has a better voice then Mariah carey? That’s the funniest joke I’ve ever heArd beyonce is know for lip syncing. Did she ge caught just this year making head lips? Useless b**** lol 🙂

    I don’t know , but She still Sound Good to me , yes , she doesn’t have the same ” Vision of love” Powerful vocals and her voice sound like a complete low concentration dose of what she used to have , but that’s mariah , she’s doing the most with her voice for like 20+ years now , of course her vocals gonna be tired , just look at alicia keys , her pregnancy shitted on her vocal cords , so…

    Give the woman her credit , Love her and she embodies the true meaning of a diva ” just like JLO” .

    Miguel doesn’t sound good live.

  71. HeadBarbInCharge May 24, 2013

    THIS B**** IS A JOKE WITH THOSE S***** VOCALS

  72. POP ROYALTY (Bohemian Grove) May 24, 2013

    who in here love “Melt Away” ?!

  73. just sayin May 24, 2013

    1st. The Hive needs to stop w/ MC hating. Mariah is a better vocalist, Beyonce better performer.
    2nd. The Barbz….get over it. I dont understand how you all dont see Nikki nasty attitude but see her as a victim. U barbz should be playing in hip hop and never comment on singers.
    3rd. The truth, #beautiful was the only iffy performance. The others, vocally, were damn good. Now for her just standing there, people should get over it.
    I thought her attitude was normal. She complained about her mic pad not being on, hints she was holding it in her hand. Her voice was on today. Haters and miserable people will do their job and well.

    • Rach May 24, 2013

      The Hive is not hating. The lambs bought Beyonce up first unnecessarily.

  74. RoyalKev May 24, 2013

    Mariah isn’t singing at her best here, this simply isn’t up to par. She sings with a lot of strain lately and I do wonder if she’s damaging her voice. I still LOVE ‘Always Be My Baby’. That song is classic and it’s definitely in my top 20 OF ALL TIME. It’s hands down my favorite Mariah song! It’s funny how I never see any lambs getting worked up about that one! Anyway, I wish Mariah better luck on her upcoming performances!

    I’m sorry, but those performances are not terrible at all . . . by the way, check your grammar . . . remove the “s” on PERFORM on the title and were good. This site is just laughable at times!

  80. JER May 24, 2013

    The same people try to check the queen on her live performances everytime when their faves struggle from dawn to dusk. Let’s not talk about the decades of vocal STRUGGLE from Brandy on all her TV performance sounding a flat out of breath MESS. Let’s not talk about XXLtina’s great live vocal performance that has yet to happen as the at b**** fracks, flubs, and flops all her adlibs. And ANY Rihanna or C-error stan trying to talk about live vocals……………………………………………..

    ………………..

    ANYWAY. Why Mariah still does these early morning shows is beyond me. Her voice can’t take live on her best day so at 6am? Grrrl…. She shoulda have taken her ass to the Billboard awards and performed THERE in the evening.

    OH And Onika Maraj lessers trying to come for ANYBODY about performing live AND grasping for straws about vocals like your flop has ever served one shred of a syllable live that could even constitute a “vocal” bye sis!!!!!!!

    • . : : h 2 o : : . May 24, 2013

      Maybe because performing at the same award show with these non-singing, talentless highschool acts wouldn’t look that good on her?

      • JOHNVIDAL May 24, 2013

        I know, those awards were f****** terrible. Only people with talent for music were Prince, Miguel and Bruno. The rest were a bunch of nonsinging-non artist teenagers and well another one who is 30 but atcs like a teen and only appeals to teens.
        Do u like Mariah Carey then?

      • . : : h 2 o : : . May 24, 2013

        I’m sorry I have only heard like 3 Mariah songs (WBT, Obsessed, Beautiful) and I didn’t know about her until probably 2011-2012.

        Well, same goes for Janet, Whitney, Celine, Madonna, and almost 100% the very well known legends/icons.

        Because . . I live in Syria, a backward Middle Eastern country where they only listen to local artists, and there’re no legal music purchase, no iTunes stores, no organized radio stations. American pop music only became popular among youth in early 2000’s, and I never had any interest until 2008-2009 or something..

        But sure, I’d like to listen to old Mariah albums! I heard “Honey” is a sweet urban pop record, I love these kinds of albums.

  81. Theman May 24, 2013

    Leave it to Beyonce flop a** fans to complain, when their YouTube copying favorite is stuck musically, and lacks creativity. “MC” sounded awesome on the other two songs. “beautiful” was better in the rehearsal. She should just sing it in full voice. That particular song was the only one that wasn’t that stellar, at least across the tv.. Her voice sounded pretty fresh and she looked amazing….

    • Lala May 24, 2013

      Dont be mad that Beyonces better now

  82. JOHNVIDAL May 24, 2013

    Sam refuses to post the whole #beautiful performance. Ok man. The other two were better but you still could update the post with it cos people seemed to really enjoy the whistles at the end

  83. DOSSOME May 24, 2013

    as MC’s fan,i think she needs to rehearse this song more and more considering her voice has really improved since 2008 and she’ll be good.

    …personally,even if all the songs were horribly sung,i just can’t criticize mariah…to me she became perfect when my best friend gifted me a copy of MUSIC BOX back in 2003 and dedicated me NEVER FORGET YOU just when i had lost my dad and that one song helped me alot…then i met my girlfriend in 2009 and UNDERNEATH THE STARS became our song and after the birth of our daughter 16 months ago,i’ve been trying to make her a lamb by playing her mariah’s music to serenade her but she seems to prefer beyonce’s “countdown” video,lol..all in all,mimi has given me all i need so i only celebrate her…

      Omg!!! wow you have a daughter ♥ ♥ ♥

      I know what you mean though. That emotional song for me has to be Through the rain (although unpopular) it makes me feel like no matter what I can do everything I want and that I don’t need approval for it. 😥

      People complain about Mariah not being able to “emote” and all but f*** that s***. I feel every song and every emotional album.

  84. Enni. May 24, 2013

    Wait did this Moron just say she lipped the climax of WBT? What else does she have to do to prove she can sing this song live? People act like its the highest note she’s ever hit. Smh.

  85. DOSSOME May 24, 2013

    ^^^^^^^Oh & BTW,That last comment was an excerpt i stole from youtube,and being the kind lamb that i am,i thought i should share…and again I SAW NO LIES!!!

  86. Suicide Blonde May 24, 2013

    Not all the performances were good but what can you expect for a vocalist, she’s not a performer like Janet or Madonna, they lip sync and get a pass but if Mariah does it, she receives a lots of heat for that, she should do it from time to time, i don’t care, she’s hurting herself, she’s forcing herself to sound perfect to the public eye and 90’s trapped fans , get over it, she would never sound like she did in the 90’s but neither our favorites will ever sound close to what she sounded at her best so….have a stadium of seats, Celine lip sync more than Mariah and nobody says a word about it, actually Madonna was singing 90% live on her MDNA tour and she does lots of choreographies and still is criticized, truth is, everybody lip sync, Gaga lip synched almost the entire Born this Way ball, yet she claims she always sing live, Beyonce lip sync, there’s a different between sing live and pre-recorded vocals who sounds like you are actually singing there, it’s all an illusion. This is not Alice in wonderland, this is the real world and nobody sounds perfect live well maybe Lisa Gerrard 🙂

  87. Music May 24, 2013

    Jer, brandy never sounds flat or out of breath. And decades? It’s probably just her tone and the way
    She resonates. Brandy is an amazing singer and i notice when everyone gives conpliments on her posts its only you hating. But dead you talk about someone sounding a mess and straining seeing how you are
    A Rihanna fan. The epitome of a singer with “out of breath” vocals.

    And why are you defending MC now when u talked s*** about her song
    “Almost Home” but now when she actually doesn’t sound good u throw a tantrum cuz ppl are telling the truth?
    Bye.

      I guess you didn’t go to her tour, well you can go to Youtube and see what i mean, the woman’s voice has never been good enough as always people do not understand what I mean or simply does not want to.what do you want, i praised Madonna, lol, actually i was defending every artists who lip sync, there is nothing wrong with that, as always people do not understand what I mean or simply does not want to.

    • JOHNVIDAL May 24, 2013

      lol well Madonna sings live in her latest tour way more than usual. Her very famous tours around 1990 around Vogue era were completely lipped. And for the most part she wasn´t even dancing a damn thing
      But don´t be cruel to @suicide! He was being nice, at least to Mariah lol

      • Suicide Blonde May 24, 2013

        @John
        I was just being honest, people think some artists are perfect.

      • JOHNVIDAL May 24, 2013

        I know. That´s why I defended you. Well kind of… 🙂 just like you were “kind of” defending all those singers who are not Madonna or Mariah

      • Suicide Blonde May 24, 2013

        Do you see Celine saying she and Madge are related?

      • JOHNVIDAL May 24, 2013

        No I didn´t. But I´m still in awe with that pic at the Billboard awards. Don´t know the reason but the way Madonna was holding Celine´s arm… she seems human there 🙂

  89. YeaWhatever! May 24, 2013

    She is just so lame to me now. I don’t know if it’s her, “I’m such a diva” attitude or what, but I can’t get into her anymore. I used to love the woman, so I’m not hating. I think she secretly needs mental help. Her voice is nowhere near what it used to be. Neither is her attitude. I really wish that her, nick, and dem babies would come out with a reality show. That would pretty much say what everyone has been thinking.

    • JOHNVIDAL May 24, 2013

      Wow what a hater. Don´t lie. You just don´t like her. She´s constantly funny in interviews and adorable to her fans. She doesn´t have any attitude problems

  92. Common Sense May 24, 2013

    I was really looking forward to these performances…
    I honestly think Mariah should at least consider vocal nodule surgery these days. There’s been much advancement in that area, so there is much less risk involved.

    • Rose’ May 25, 2013

      Hell no. How on earth could you risk such a gift. One wrong move and that voice is gone. The risk definitely outranks the gains here. Could you imagine having a voice like Mariah’s knowing it isnt what it used to be, then having surgery only to lose what you had left. devastating.

  93. MC May 24, 2013

    Holding my comments 😆

    Two in a row 😆

  94. DOSSOME May 24, 2013

    @Common Sense

    I don’t agree with Mariah having surgery to repair her voice…her voice has deterioriated,well it happens,but she still can work with what she has.Don’t forget she still does justice to some of her older hits (make it happen,dreamlover,underneath the stars) than her newer hits (TMB,TRIUMPHANT)…I don’t care whether she’ll eventually be limited to studio singing,all i know is that any surgery that can risk her losing her singing voice (see Julie Andrews) should not be entertained….let her work with her new voice like Whitney did on that modern classic I LOOK TO YOU.

  95. Vonelle May 24, 2013

    I just don’t get this. I watched all the clips, and I don’t see anything bad.

    • POP ROYALTY ( RUDE BOY) May 24, 2013

      Exactly , that’s the point.

  96. Jack May 24, 2013

    I read this post and braced for the worst when I watched the videos. Surprise — there’s nothing wrong with these performances.

    It’s shocking how easily led the readers of this website are. It starts when a small-minded homosexual who’s probably jealous that Mariah looks better in a gown that he does goes on a tirade — then everyone here believes it. It’s “mob mentality” — one person starts the fight and everyone else joins in, for no reason but to be a part of the anger.

    Ignorance at its finest.

    • JOHNVIDAL May 25, 2013

      I agree. He did it in the last Chart Check post too, and most people joined him too. People don´t really have a mind of their own (most people in here at least)

  97. Maestro J May 24, 2013

    What I can’t stand is how her fans try to make excuses for her but when Whitney (God rest her soul) was sounding a mess it was MARIAH fans in particular who were slaming her left and right. So we knew Whitney smoked them damn NEWPORT 100s so there went the voice, however whats Mariahs issue? Mariah has been more concerned with her image than her talent and its become rather annoying.
    I AM A MARIAH CAREY FAN … Mimi needs to be destroyed. I feel like Mariah needs to go ahead and put on some jeans, or some pants and a nice top and give us the perfomances she owes us for these WHACK ASS PERFORMANCES from 2005-PRESENT.
    She needs to go ahead and be a judge on RuPauls Drag Race because shes been LIPSYNCING for HER LIFE!!!!!! and its hella obvious. Its clear that the institute that was once Mariah Carey is no longer, but she’s making it worse by faking it.
    If the dress is too tight for you to sing comfortably, don’t wear it
    If you know you have a show in the morning, go to sleep, get up in time to do your vocal warm ups and be prepared.
    Why can’t we have the old Mariah who wore tide up plaid shirts and jeans and wore a vocal to smithereens back?
    Its as if we’ve been made to settle for this mere fraction of her former self simply because SHE IS MARIAH CAREY… I think this time around we need to show her that THATS NOT ENOUGH anymore
    even Aretha through smoking, stress and desease still can show out… A LITTLE BIT lol…
    but whats MARIAH’s excuse. For someone who CLAIMS she doesnt smoke, and only drinks champagne… she sounds like she’s been doin a little more than that… IJS

    WILL THE REAL MARIAH CAREY PLEASE STAND UP… and someone shoot and kill this MIMI CHICK NOW!!!!

    • Marc May 24, 2013

      I see no lies.

    • RoyalKev May 25, 2013

      This is very honest! It’s so honest that you’re either a big fan or a little bit of an hater (I’d go with the former). Many Mariah Carey stans gloss over anything Mariah does that isn’t acceptable and they’re often the first to criticize (esp if that name of that artists they’d go awf on was Whitney, Beyonce, Xtina or Jlo). Their brutally “honest”, but one of the most sensitive stans you can insult with the truth. I love Janet, but her stans are the same way. it might be a legend thing. I still feel like you must be very honest sometimes because that artists will indeed believe that there’s nothing to correct if all their getting is praises for messy performances. I hate when people expect 90’s vocals from Mariah. I do give her a pass because she was simply one of the best voices I ever heard (along with Whitney, Celine and a few others), but she should be doing better than what she’s doing now. What’s being said in this post is right, if you’re tossing your hat in the ring, prepare to be judged!

    • JOHNVIDAL May 25, 2013

      Hmmm… really???
      I´d say most Mariah Carey fans are Whitney fans too. They are both epic acts so I don´t see how majority of people wouldn´t like both. The true Mariah lovers in these blog like me, @MC, @DOSSOME and more (many of them don´t come here anymore) love Whitney the same way
      We are not in 1992 hun. You seem to be the one who can´t get in your head time passes and voices change. Even in the 90´s most normal people loved both and that´s it. We are not talking about lessors here

  98. I Will Adorn You May 24, 2013

    Um, even the WBT performance was weak come on now. It looked like a real struggle she had no charisma whatsoever besides them ott hand movements which is now annoying and distracting and makes her look even more fake. And she was lipping through most of it anyway come on, don’t be in denial. This was not up to par. Just because you are ‘Mariah Carey’, doesn’t mean you should give lazy performances like that.

  99. Music May 24, 2013

  101. Music May 24, 2013

    Sorry, JERm. I know u don’t like Brandy for some reason but
    I wasn’t gonna let u discredit her like that especially being the underrated vocalist
    that she is cuz ppl like Beyonce and Rihanna have outshined her over the years.
    to say for a decade her performances have been flat and out of breath is pure b*******.
    If you actually knew anything about Brandy, or even better SINGING, you’d see
    most of her performances are pitch perfect and she possess the utmost breath control and proper
    Intonation technique especially when it comes to staying within her range. Ur just a hater and too damn deaf
    to hear what others have been hearing for the past several years.
    So next time know what you’re talking about and I won’t have to read u.

    I dont think you all were listening or watching the same performance as I was. Cuz she f****** SLAYED WBL!!!!! Sure the verses were a little rushed or out of breath, but the ending was pure raw grandness, which is what I/we love about Mariah. It wasnt lipped and it looked like she was putting her all into it and I felt it and it was on point. Throughout the whole performance i was on the edge of my chair to see if she would pull it off and she did. Awesome Mimi. Keep showin em the diva that you are and will always be.

  105. Rob May 24, 2013

    Many of ya’ll don’t know, but Sam is a huge Whitney fan and used to shade Mariah and compare the too. It’s not Mariah’s fault ole Nippy was a crackhead and bit dust. Oop.

    @Rob…i know,he even kept defending Whitney’s vocal decline saying that her voice “only changed” BUT as for MC,who spent the first 11yrs of her career either recording or performing non-stop has no excuse but to give “vision of love” standard vocals everytime she performs live….i’ve always compared majority of Mimi’s recordings to BEE GEES’ SPIRITS HAVING FLOWN album,the kind of songs that are extremely difficult to perform live due to heavy layering of vocals….Let him hate on Mariah all he wants,She still remains a living legend.

  108. TheNormaJeane May 24, 2013

    I actually enjoyied the WBT performance. that was live. and TGJ wrong for saying that was lip synced. its obvious it wasn’t , even though it sounded good to me, mariah obviously didn’t start the climax of the song on the right que. so that is an obvious indicator. however i loved it.!

  109. Mark111 May 25, 2013

    You goats with all these excuses! She beeing lipping and singing bad LIVE for a decade now, get over it! You goats dug your hole, everytime I so to a R&B singer page I see “She’s not a Whitney or Mairah”, b**** even Whitney and Mariah isn’t a Whitney or Mariah anymore. What’s gets me is that this is the person that sat on AI, telling people who’s in key or can or can not sing when she can’t sing any better then an average AI singer. Not everyone can be Beyonce and kill that s***, deal with it! Another thing that is funny is the Madonna fans, there’s a reason why someone in their 50’s is still touring and not sitting back enjoying their life. Funny how they can only bring up money, well even toothpaste sells b******. I’m out.

  110. Aaron May 25, 2013

    Lip synced climax? She held it for about 5 seconds, the original studio recording is 14 seconds long. So how is it lipped? Ergh Sam on TGJ pisses me off. He knows nothing about vocals, so she shouldn’t comment on it.

  111. oh dear May 25, 2013

    Argh…just another ill written post. Stop drinking that purple juice honey and start researching your facts. What did MC do to you to be do shady? Not pay you to post or perhaps, didn’t reply to your requests or tweets begging for an interview??

  112. GOLDEN LIFE May 25, 2013

    That was a f****** mess. No other words to describe it. And she cursed on live TV. Crazy b****.

  113. Drose4ever May 25, 2013

    I’ll just say this i was there at the GMA concert and it was the sound that messed up the beautiful performance. Her vocals were amazing and she slayyed all of the songs she sang. Even during her rehearsal and random riffs and runs. She sang baby doll for us and she slayyed it. Her voice is definitely back so if you weren’t there to see her do it then Shut The F*** Up !!!!!

    P.S. i have the videos that i recorded of her slaying #Beautiful and her other songs.

    • GOLDEN LIFE May 25, 2013

      EXCUSES! She sounded like s*** AS USUAL b****!

    I think what SAM next time you go and get your ass down to any Mariah live performance and listen to her LIVE Singing then you can judge in here cuz i know your favorite can’t even sing like Mariah Dahhling
