Mariah Carey Performs At Macy’s 4th Of July Gig

Published: Friday 28th Jun 2013 by David

The icon that is Mariah Carey stepped out in Jersey City last night, recording her performance for Macy’s annual 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular at Liberty State Park.

Joined by ‘Use Me‘ sensation Miguel, the star reportedly impressed her audience with a number of her strongest releases, including a rousing rendition of Katharine Lee Bates‘ ‘America The Beautiful’.

Peep fan footage from the show below…


As far as vocals ago, here’s hoping Mimi opted for a well produced ‘live’ vocal over a live vocal for reasons we’d rather not go into.

As far as the new album goes, we can’t wait to hear how the success of ‘Beautiful‘ has altered her direction- hopefully pulling on the same Adult Contemporary romanticism that’s set to take the song to Platinum status in a few week’s time.

Call us crazy, but we’re hoping there are plans to place to drop the project around the Christmas period, as to capitalize on the fourth quarter sales rush and the annual hype ‘All I Want For Christmas’ brings her.

For, with consumers set to pick up that single in their thousands during the period, why not kill two birds with one stone by giving them a new album to go along with it?

Your thoughts?

Ç o m ~~ They told me it is a Serious black white dating for black & white single s seeking interracial relationships, friendships, dating ,love and more.. So, if you want to look for people with which you can date, you are at the right place.You can meet(lawyers,busy professionals, benefactors. models, celebrities, and so on….)If you are single, perhaps you can have a try.

  11. Lovebird June 28, 2013

    Not people who Stan for a billy goat, a drunk and an illiterate lip synching b**** coming for Mariah’s vocals.Mariah absolutely slayed that and you’ll deal.

    • Barb B**** June 28, 2013

      Mariah lip syncs and is not good at it either

    • MARTHA STEWART June 28, 2013

      You are a Ciara Stan!! your word holds No merit b****

    • Rosie June 28, 2013

      In the last week you’ve had a Michelle Williams avatar and a Cedric avatar, you have no right to say anything about anyone’s fave.

      • OVERDOSE June 28, 2013

        Well both CiCi and Michelle slay Lama Del Gay on stage soooo

      • Rosie June 28, 2013

        And neither of them still can go triple cardboard sooo…

    • Savannah June 28, 2013

      A mariah/Ciara stan has no room to talk about lip synching lol.

  12. Mya June 28, 2013

    Oh no not good. But bring on the lambs with their dated stats from the 90s to justify it.

  13. Barb B**** June 28, 2013

    Looooool!

  14. Theman June 28, 2013

  15. Lamb Chopper June 28, 2013

    She need to find out what’s wrong with her vocal chords she is struggling to hit notes she slayed in the 90’s

  16. PRINCE CARTER FENTY June 28, 2013

    • JER June 28, 2013

  19. RIHKING/BEYQUEEN June 28, 2013

    LOOOOL a mess.com

  20. Lovebird June 28, 2013

    Somebody needs to spray some bug spray in this b**** and float a few icebergs because these b****** are delirious. Mariah is the epitome of vocal ingenuity and dynamics. Her voice box is the manger Jesus lay in. Her vocal dynamics are out of this world and superior to any weaveologist or billy goat.

    Mariah’s vocal superiority is above any and all your struggling faves who buy YouTube views and scalp their own tickets. Deal with the awesomeness that is Mariah and pay homage to the real queen you swines.

    • RIHKING/BEYQUEEN June 28, 2013

      loooool you still mad you got blocked by the king ?? bahhaahahah and have fun standing for that untalented t***** looking fave who’s vocal range is lower than mute.

    • . : : h 2 o : : . June 28, 2013

      Second part of your comment . . . I’d love to see some receipts…

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (JLO? WHO IS THAT?) June 28, 2013

        There are plenty of receipts. Get off the post and go find them Hun…

      • . : : h 2 o : : . June 28, 2013

        I can’t find them . . It’d be appreciated if you post them for me . . .

  21. Mariah Carey 4 life June 28, 2013

  22. OVERDOSE June 28, 2013

    Sam why you blocking my comments?
    THIS’S WHERE THIEFONCE STOLE “I BEEN OUTSOLD” INSTRUMENTAL FROM!!!

  23. JARED (WHITE DUDE) June 28, 2013

    Yes Mariah.

    Well I, for one, love the ‘raspy/husky’ quality of Mariah’s voice these days. In my opinion, it adds an extra, emotional texture that wasn’t there beforehand.

    It was a similar situation to both ‘Whitney & Amy’ (before they left us) and their respective voices; ‘I Look To You’ and ‘Body & Soul’ were some of the best songs they had ever recorded in their entire careers and their ‘new’ voices is what did it justice.

    What I think Mariah needs to retreat too, musically speaking, is Jazz music. She no longer has the voice for ‘power-ballads’ but she most definitely has the voice to record some excellent, Anita Baker/Billie Holliday/Dinah Washington- esque ‘R&B/Soul-Jazz/Quiet Storm/Smooth-Soul’ music.

    Mariah’s voice has changed so.much throughout her career: Rch and Resonant (1990-93), light and high (1994-96), hoarse and husky (1997-2001), thin and raspy (2002-2005), deep and dry (2006-2009) and now to the thin and nasal (2010-present).

    She needs a change, artistically. 😉

    • LOU June 28, 2013

      Oh Lord… @JARED.

      You’re smart comments are always on point.

      I agree bro…

      • Lou June 28, 2013

        Im not here for my name being used like that since the only place you seem to appear is in Jareds reply sections… Hmmmmmmm…

      • JARED (WHITE DUDE) June 28, 2013

        SMFH.

        @The “Real Lou”…

        I’ve noticed this also. I started to consider this person a ‘cyber stalker’ like that other commenter @Desperation, who kept on writing to, and about, me for almost a week, with Pop Royalty also.

        Oh well, they would’ve stolen my name by tomorrow, so…. Whatever!

    • TRUTH TEA June 28, 2013

      CO-SIGN!!!

    • SLAYRIAH CAREY (JLO? WHO IS THAT?) June 28, 2013

      Jazz?
      Lol. No one will buy that. I know, blah blah, she’s come to a point where she doesn’t need to worry about sales.

      Honestly, Mariah just hasn’t took a long break from the music industry. She has never had a good amount of vocal rest since her debut. Tbh, I don’t think she should have released Memoirs because that’s when the vocal struggle really started to kick in.

      I’m starting to agree with @Common Sense about mariah having surgery.

    • MIMI CAREY June 28, 2013

      YES. F****** YES.

      I’ve always said Mariah should record Jazz… Her voice is perfect for it now.

      And I agree with the rest of your comment. Real talk tho…

  24. Lovebird June 28, 2013

    God the Hive are so stupid. Why must they be so dumb, I don’t get it.

    • Lou June 28, 2013

      Wheres the Hive on here? Your obsession is so real you’re seeing things that aint there honey.

  25. SLAYRIAH CAREY (JLO? WHO IS THAT?) June 28, 2013

    Fan bases that shouldn’t speak on anyone’s vocals:

    C-Squad
    Lama Del Rey Stans
    Fighters
    Taylor Swift fans (Swiftees?)
    Barbz

    • Rosie June 28, 2013

      All five can give a better performance than Mooriah in 2013.

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (JLO? WHO IS THAT?) June 28, 2013

        Not Lana though. She can’t even ousting Nicki and Katy. Let’s not.

      • Rosie June 28, 2013

        Sis she was outsinging Moo everyday on her sold out European tour. You should get tickets for the upcoming US leg since you always seem to be so obsessed with her.

    • Roman June 28, 2013

      We will come for who ever the f*** we want, thanks for the concern though.

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (JLO? WHO IS THAT?) June 28, 2013

        You are in no position Hun. Mimi will always slay the floparuku Barnie.

  26. Savannah June 28, 2013

    Lip synching for the Gods.

  27. Lovebird June 28, 2013

    At least my faves have got talent and class, same cannot be said about the chimney and the stripper with the blonde weave.

    • Rosie June 28, 2013

      LMAO @ “talent and class” when you also stan for Herprihs, who is known as the biggest w**** in the music industry.

  28. TaylorSwift1Stan June 28, 2013

    She really needs to work on her performances seriously. Its not even funny anymore this its sad!!

    Lambs are mean and insecure they always love to bring other people down

    I hate shading mariah 🙁 but her stans>>>

    GOODLUCK MIMI deep down I love you. Just giving you tough love!!

  29. Lovebird June 28, 2013

    The hive need to swarm around the navy ships, hit an iceberg and drown into the sea. Bunch of hateful b******, the nerve of you guys tryin to come for Mariah.

    • . : : h 2 o : : . June 28, 2013

      No one from the Hive attacked Mariah on this thread so far lol..

      • Lou June 28, 2013

        Wow whats with all the Mariah hate. So unnecessary!

      • Lou June 28, 2013

        Sorry that was supposed to be a general comment^ but yeah Lovebird stays pressed and obsessed with Beyonce and the Hive. Majority of genuine Hives (not trolls) do not have a problem with mariah.

  30. LOVEBIRD June 28, 2013

    I love Mariah but Ciara is more successful than her.

    • SLAYRIAH CAREY (JLO? WHO IS THAT?) June 28, 2013

      Yeah, you are not the real lovebird. White girl mob

  31. Rosie June 28, 2013

    There’s only like two Hive on this entire post, yet this fat b**** is still pressed and delusional. IDK why she’s so mad when she bandwagons for Rih at every given opportunity.

  32. Roman June 28, 2013

    Sloppy as f***, just like her beer belly tbh.

  33. HoneychildPlease June 28, 2013

    I wish people would stop trying to be me…This is my first time commenting on here today..Mariah looked beautiful though…WHITE GIRL MOB is a mess..

  34. Queen J-lo June 28, 2013

    J-lo would have slayed that stage. Cowriah was only there for the free alcohol backstage.

    • SLAYRIAH CAREY (JLO? WHO IS THAT?) June 28, 2013

      Lol. Too bad Live it Up is still flopping and cannot be found in the iTunes top 1000

  35. HONEYCHILDPLEASE June 28, 2013

    Also @Lovebird can you please stop stealing my identity. It’s getting F****** annoying.

  36. HoneychildPlease June 28, 2013

    Sam i won’t be visiting this site anymore…People just steal people’s users names, and identity, and you don’t do s*** about it! i even reported it, and yet you have done nothing! F*** you, because you continue to let people like WHITE GIRL MOB get away with dumb ass s***! Her pic is blurry as f***, and mines is not…Do the math who’s the real one??

    • JARED (WHITE DUDE) June 28, 2013

      I know you’re the real one…

      Don’t let it get to You. The security on this site is appalling and @White Girl Mob steals my identity all the time. Including others like @Suicide, Slayriah and MariahIsMusic1 as well as Pop Royalty.

      Just write your comment and then leave or just conversate with people you like. I do.

    • Lou June 28, 2013

      Lol how many times have you said you wont be visiting this site anymore and your ass stays coming back like a fly to s***. Just stop lol. Or take your own advice and just use your name @B****** Are A Mess 😉

  37. TaylorSwift1Stan June 28, 2013

    Slayriah you forgot to include the Navy on your list or are you a navy?

    • SLAYRIAH CAREY (JLO? WHO IS THAT?) June 28, 2013

      I didn’t put the hive either, does that mean I’m a Beyonce fan?

  38. IDK June 28, 2013

    Damn, I didnt know these many people didnt like Mariah. O well, I still do. Go Mariah!

  39. LOVEBIRD June 28, 2013

    @HONEYCHILDPLEASE I’m not stealing your identity. I promise that’s someone else.

    • NAVY June 28, 2013

  44. . : : h 2 o : : . June 28, 2013

    I CANNOT stop laughing @ how obvious the difference between the original Hatbird and fake one is…

    I think it’s @ Beysus Over Jesus . . No one but her is so stupid to the point of believing comments won’t be sent unless you type “thatgrapejuice.net” in the Website box.

    • SLAYRIAH CAREY (JLO? WHO IS THAT?) June 28, 2013

      Do you like volleyball?

      • . : : h 2 o : : . June 28, 2013

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (JLO? WHO IS THAT?) June 28, 2013

        I don’t know how to swim. I always stay in the shallow end.
        Do you wanna teach me? You should try volleyball btw, really fun.

      • . : : h 2 o : : . June 28, 2013

    @JARED (WHITE DUDE)

    THanks hun….

  46. Rosie June 28, 2013

    So Hatebird has been exposed?

    • SLAYRIAH CAREY (JLO? WHO IS THAT?) June 28, 2013

      Yes, exposed like the non-existence of Lana’s vocals on that SNL stage.

      • Rosie June 28, 2013

        Nonexistent like Moo’s career since E=MC2.
        Seriously why does the QUEEN bother you so much? I bet she’s the most played artist on your last.fm.

  47. Lou June 28, 2013

    Wow whats with all the Mariah hate? So unnecessary.

  48. SLAYRIAH CAREY (JLO? WHO IS THAT?) June 28, 2013

    THE DELUSIONS.
    Lama will never ousting Mariah. #never
    don’t lie to yourself….

    • Rosie June 28, 2013

      Lana stays on your mind. I hope “The Art Of Letting Go (Of My Career)” doesn’t bellyflop into oblivion.

    • IM A FREE B*TCH June 29, 2013

      Mariah will never be as artistic as Lana is

  49. TaylorSwift1Stan June 28, 2013

    Slayriah actually beyonce fans can give critics about Vocals.
    Does that also apply to Rihanna fans?
    Let’s be real is she vocally there with mariah?

    • SLAYRIAH CAREY (JLO? WHO IS THAT?) June 28, 2013

      Yes, Beyonce fans can speak on others vocals, but not Mariah, who is one of the greatest vocalists of all time.

    • . : : h 2 o : : . June 28, 2013

      Beyonce is a great vocalist to me but no she’s not on Mariah’s level . . Watch Mariah’s Grammys performances..

  50. TaylorSwift1Stan June 28, 2013

    Slayriah actually beyonce fans can give critics about Vocals.
    Does that also apply to Rihanna fans?
    Let’s be real is she vocally there with mariah?
    Even Adele stans can give critic about vocals! Do the navy have right to give critic about vocals? As you stan for the person with the greatest range ever.
    Xoxo

    I really don’t get slayriah though, he/she is the reason why I shade mimi, I even downloaded #Beautiful on Itunes

  51. Todd June 28, 2013

    Morons! Haters! Have u even checked that 15 sec (!!!) video? She sounds and look great! All u do is come to bash somebody cause ya’ll are nothin in real life and i guess that makes u feel special and ”at home”. Sad people! GO MIMI!!!!!

  52. TaylorSwift1Stan June 28, 2013

    #Nowplaying Mariah Carey _ Fantasy
    Xoxo
    Taylor Swift >> Lana Del Ray
    Sit your ass down dumb Rosie

  53. JOHNVIDAL June 28, 2013

    She looks fabulous in that red dress! I´ve seen plenty of pics but of course Sam won´t post them.
    About certain people: how can you base your delusional hate on a 15 seconds vid? and recorded by a fan? lol People pressed at Mariah´s status. I mean, it´s not a good look guys… 🙂

  54. Kate June 28, 2013

    She still looks and sounds like a man

  55. Dorthy Ross June 28, 2013

    Flopriah is still shaped like a rectangle after all these years

  56. SLAYRIAH CAREY (JLO? WHO IS THAT?) June 28, 2013

    Lol, Rosie, I would never listen to Lana’s music even if someone held a gun to my head and forced me to. Mariah’s career is just fine. Her single is heading towards being certified platinum in the US and Australia.

    We will not have this conversation because Lana is way out of Mariah’s league. When will she have any 15+ million selling albums? Or a number one single in the US? Or $500 million net worth? Over 200 million records sold? Or a successful perfume line? Or any influence on other artist? Any classics?

    • Rosie June 28, 2013

      Then why do you have to bring her up everytime I comment? Stop lying. I mean, you wrote this long ass essay just to prove it. And stop bringing up receipts from the 90s/early 2000’s when album sales were still excellent, because we all know how much Moo’s last two albums sold, and we all know how her last Claire’s perfumes are doing.
      By the way, Lana is already influencing music, generic electropop being phased out of mainstream music for wannabe hipster music is proof of that.

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (JLO? WHO IS THAT?) June 28, 2013

        Why should I stop bringing up those receipts from 1990s to mid 2000s. That’s when Mimi was in her prime. Why would it be right to compare Mariah who is over a decade out of her prime to Lama who is still basically new?

        Mariah’s perfume empire = $150 million

        & why are you so pressed over her last two albums? They’ve both been certified gold. + Merry Christmas II you will be certified platinum eventually since we both know that Mariah dominates in the Christmas time with both Christmas albums and All I want for Christmas is You. It’s the art of creating classic Music that people will listen to and purchase years later, Lana will never. & E=MC2 still sold more than Born to Flop in the US.

        DEAD @ the last part of your comment. I won’t even start with that. Mariah has influenced a VERY long list of female vocalist.

  57. labeija June 28, 2013

    She is so fake, i can’t.

    • Mooooooo June 30, 2013

      b**** is a hot mess….. she shd just retire…

  58. DOSSOME June 28, 2013

    I saw pics on mariahdaily,she looked great and i heard she sounded great….Wait,Is there an alzheimers outbreak among these kids on TGJ that they stay forgetting the things they stan for & even attempting to come for royalty???

    • Lamb Chopper June 28, 2013

      Royalty my ass, this h** is a tired mess.

  59. MC June 28, 2013

    I hope the #Beautiful performance isn’t an utter mess like the previous ones. I saw pics of her as well, she looked gorgeous.

    Lambs, the album title isn’t The Art Of Letting Go, the real title is in the chorus of Babydoll. I think it might be Velvet Kisses, what about y’all.

    This era is a goddamn mess already.

  60. Fan4mc June 28, 2013

    Ok so before I watched the performance I read the comments so I expected the worse…watched the performance now and realised its just haters talking cos mariah blew me away as per..ps haters gon hate 🙂

  61. DOSSOME June 28, 2013

    @MC

    Are you for real??UGH…VELVET KISSES????LMAO,WTF is wrong with her?…She might settle for ENFOLD (Unfold/unfolding/enfolded) tho..She’s unpredictable so i doubt she’ll make it so easy to guess…someone on youtube suggested MIMISSIAH 😀

    I loved reading people say she sounded terrible from a 15 second video, which clearly sounds like the same exact version from when she performed a decade ago @ this very event.. Back then she was praised for this very same preformance. She used it again and now it’s “terrible” HAHAHA. Sam did say it was rousing. It surely was. So many haters, why?

    I don’t understand these lesser stans. Mariah sounds flawless in these 15 seconds. How are all the current flops outsinging her again?

    She sounded incredible, the vocals are a muscle and Mariah has been really looking after herself lately so no surprise that she’s sounding like the true legend that she is!
