Watch: Mariah Carey Rocks Macy’s ‘4th of July’ Firework Spectactular

Published: Thursday 4th Jul 2013 by Rashad


Macy’s 2013 ‘4th of July’ Firework Spectacular was chock full of star power with the likes of Cher, Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez, and Pitbull all taking the stage.  However, it was the performance of headliner/Pop icon Mariah Carey that seemed to be the night’s most anticipated event.

Lending electric showings of her latest Miguel-assisted hit ‘Beautiful’, ‘America The Beautiful’, and ‘Hero’, the performances come as her first live act since her backing track backlash at a BET Awards outing days ago.

Does Mariah let her multioctave range shine through this time?  Or did she enlist her trusty pre-recording for a flawless redo?

Tell us below:


Much better Mariah!  Thanks for the reminder of your abilities.

    IGNORE what Nick said about “best selling artist” @ Suicide.

    Oh, and this was partly lipped, not fully. The high notes at the end were absolutely #beautiful.

    • Suicide Blonde July 4, 2013

      Haha, i’m used to it, Mariah believes her own hype.

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) July 4, 2013

        But Nick is the one that said it though, not Mariah so how is it Her “believing her own hype?”

      • Suicide Blonde July 4, 2013

        Because she let them do so, i’m not mad, as i say I’M USED TO IT.

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) July 4, 2013

        Lol. But how do you know “she let them do so?”
        Are you a spy?

      • Suicide Blonde July 4, 2013

        Because they continue doing so, i also read somewhere that she will not appear in any tv, awards, ect, ect…shows, if she’s not introduced that way, could be a lie, could be true.

      • JARED (WHITE DUDE) July 4, 2013


        I don’t think that’s true.

        ‘Diana Ross, Aretha Franklin and Barbra Streisand’ are the ONLY three Diva’s who could ever demand such a thing.

        Madonna, to an extent, also.

        LOL. 🙂

      • Suicide Blonde July 4, 2013

        Arethat is the most arrogant among those, i don’t think Madonna cares much about her records sales as much as her fans, i believe she really lost interest in break any kind of record.

      • Fifi July 4, 2013

        You mean how Madonna believes her own hype? Kinda the same way.

      • JOHNVIDAL July 5, 2013

        Madonna does it, Mariah does it, Celine does it. Who cares? All of them are in a way. Numbers can also be manipulated.

      • JOHNVIDAL July 11, 2013


    • DOSSOME July 4, 2013

      But is she not the bestselling female artist according to soundscan…we all know sales before soundscan were inflated for dear Nick is right

      • Suicide Blonde July 4, 2013

        Baby soundscan means US and CANADA, what do you mean that Madonna sales were inflated in the 80’s when she had her best selling album in the 90’s.

      • JARED (WHITE DUDE) July 4, 2013


        So does that mean that both Whitney, Michael and Celine’s sales were inflated also, prior to 1991, seeing that they all, more or less, made their solo debuts between 1979 – 1984 respectively?

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) July 4, 2013

        Well, Nick siad “best selling artist,” not best selling female artist. Knowing that Suicide would likely say something about it I was just saying that there’s no point.

      • Suicide Blonde July 4, 2013

        Why i have the impression that you think i hate Mariah?

      • DOSSOME July 4, 2013

        Is she or is she not the the bestselling female artist according to soundscan?????Why would reputable sources still refer to her as bestselling when madge is over 100million records ahead????When thriller numbers are estimated btwn 65m-110m,why such a huge margin of estimation???sorry i’ll stick with soundscan 😉

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) July 4, 2013


        I wouldn’t say that you “hate” her, but I think you dislike her and try and play nice sometimes because you don’t want to come off as a hater. I hate when people say they like Mariah (or any other artist) but shade them every chance they get.

        You don’t have to like/love her but just be honest…

      • DOSSOME July 4, 2013


        That SITTING ON A HAY STACK LIKE A DAMN COW was probably him…you know how these madonna fans swarm mariah videos before any other

      • Suicide Blonde July 4, 2013

        Thriller was at 65 mark by the time MJ died, it must be now between 68-70, i agree that his sales were inflated probably because he wanted to be compared to The Beatles and Elvis but there is not question that Thriller is the best selling album of all times, i don’t know why his fans insist in such invented sales, as if 65/70 weren’t outstanding, Thriller is the epitome of success. On Mariah there is also no question that she is the best selling female artist of the 90’s but that’s it, the 90’s, if you compared her sales to Madonna, you will notice that Madonna has always been the biggest star worldwide, Mariah could top her in the US but just as Barbra is not bigger than Madonna in the rest of the world, Mariah would not be still the best selling female artist ww, Madonna’s sales in a worldwide scale are only comparable with MJ, Elvis and The Beatles, when it comes to global sales, she leaves any female artist in the dust.

      • Suicide Blonde July 4, 2013

        That’s not true, i dislike lots of things about her and some of her fans but as far shades her on purpose, not.
        I don’t have a youtube account, lol, not all Madonna fans are the same and the same applies to the lambs.

      • JARED (WHITE DUDE) July 4, 2013


        I agree.

        In terms of Global sales, according to Billboard. Biz and other intl’ sales sites, only ‘Madonna, Nina Mouskouri, Yma Sumac, Joan Sutherland and Doris Day’ are the female artists with the most sold records worldwide – 300+ Million each, certified or not.

        ‘Michael Jackson, Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, Johnny Mathis and Pat Boone’ are the best selling male artists of all time – 400+ Million each, certified or not.

      • JARED (WHITE DUDE) July 4, 2013


        Not Pat Boone, sorry. I meant ‘Julio Iglesias’.

      • Suicide Blonde July 4, 2013

        Propaganda. Julio Iglesias didn’t sold that much, 300 million my ass, Nina too, she was only a popular in France and Germany i think, and her sales there weren’t are great, some music critics say that her worldwide sales could have not past the 25 million, people think we are really that stupid to belive a non global star has sold more or the same as Elvis, the Beatles, MJ and Madonna.

      • JARED (WHITE DUDE) July 4, 2013


        You’re both correct and incorrect.

        Generally speaking, when ‘Worldwide Record Sales’ are taken into consideration, the continents which are, generally, appointed are that of: North America and Europe – and, in some cases, the East Asian regions – specifically, Japan.

        You have to remember that ‘Asia’ is a continent with 3 Billion people altogether (India, a country in South-Asia, houses 1+ Billion people alone as does China).

        ‘Africa’ is a continent with 1.5 Billion people. South & Central America and regions/continents with 500+ Million people and so forth…

        It is, indeed, quite possible that artists from their respective country/continent can outsell any mainstream artist from the western world any day.

        Madonna has barely surpassed 5 Million units in ‘Africa; 30 years since her debut whereas, Miriam Makeba, a South-African singer has sold a, reportedly, 150+ Million records in Africa alone.

        You see?

        Julio Iglesias has sold over 60+ Million Records in Spanish/Portugese Africa alone, so, it is quite possible that he has sold over 300+ Million Records Worldwide.

        Idim Mohammad is a pakistani singer and has sold over 100+ Million reocrds in Asia without EVER having crossed over into the Western World.

        I believe in this theory and think it is true. 😉

      • Suicide Blonde July 4, 2013

        You are also both correct and incorrect since the market in those countries with 1 billion or so of population is very poor, the market is much bigger in countries such as France, Italy or Germany, hence that’s why the US is the biggest market and its population is not even close to the population of India or China, where the market is even smaller than the UK, AFrica is another axample of propaganda, are we gonna pretend that people in Africa buy more records than food.

      • JARED (WHITE DUDE) July 4, 2013



        You have a point there about ‘Marketing’.

        It probably is propaganda, as you say. But, if that’s the case, it makes no sense. By all means, the reported sales of artists, belonging to the Western world, will probably be more reputable than that of an artist from ‘Thailand’ per say, however, in saying that, who do you truly believe?

        Madonna is no doubt the ‘Biggest Selling Female Artist of All Time’ from the western world, but only in N.A, EUR & S.A and Australia by and large.

        Continents such as ‘Asia’ & ‘Africa’ and the sub-continents ‘Oceania’ and’ The Middle-East’ have rarely contributed to buying her records, but she can tour there because of her extensive global marketing campaigns over the years.

        You know? It’s a hard call.

        And, remember, not all countries in Africa are famine-ridden. ‘Nigeria, South Africa, Kenya, Egypt, Angola and Ghana’ do have large business industries. 😉

      • Suicide Blonde July 4, 2013

        I’m not talking only about Madonna but also about MJ and the likes, however Madonna has been even more succesful in Australia than Kylie Minogue, that says a lot, in the Middle-East she is also very popular and, no matter if she sold in Africa 5 million or 0, when you put together all her records sales she beats every female musician by miles, the same can be said of Elvis and The Beatles, Africa didn’t love them as much as AMERICAN or EUROPE, they’re white, you won’t find Africans buying records of white people, it’s a cultural thing but they beat everyone else with their discography sales.

      • JARED (WHITE DUDE) July 4, 2013


        Yes, I understand your point, but you can’t exactly say that “Africans don’t buy records of White people” – that is, somewhat, of a biased generalization. By all means, Africans who are educated about the western world and western music, or of whom live in the western world, will of course do so but those who live within the continent may not. To say “It’s a cultural thing” is wrong but what I think you meant to say is that they “aren’t familiar” with many White, western artists – including many famous Black ones also – that is, more so, the case.

        Today, there are so many hybrids of African and Western music (Digital Afro-Beat), so they must know something. The same goes for East-Asian music: K-Pop, J-Rock, Bollywood Music etc…

        And what? Madonna has sold more than Kylie Minogue in Australia? DAMN. Then again, she has sold more records in the U.K than in Asutralia. 🙂 🙂 🙂

    • iris July 4, 2013

      She’s still the DIVA. No doubt about it. Great performance!!!!

  2. Suicide Blonde July 4, 2013

    Sitting on a hay stack like a damn cow

    First comment on Youtube, don’t judged me, it was funny, lol.

    • steph July 4, 2013

      Suicide, didn’t she sound so much better. I loved Hero performance. It was good but not great but atleast she sung live and sung all her high notes and added more high notes. She needs more vocal lessons and practice. Also, Suicide how big is your WHITE penis.

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) July 4, 2013

        lol, What’s up with the last question? let’s leave all the dirty conversations for the Rihanna posts and focus on the queen, the one and only, Mariah Carey. <3

      • Suicide Blonde July 4, 2013

        @Stephy kids don’t behave like that, i haven’t measured my d*** yet, would/could you come and do it for me?

      • steph July 4, 2013

        @Blondey It would be a pleasure to measure your WHITE PIPE! To bad I don’t live in California

      • Suicide Blonde July 4, 2013

        I live in NY but i’m on vacation in California.

    • JARED (WHITE DUDE) July 4, 2013

      You’re a mess!!!

      But, yes, I saw that too…

      My friend spat out all of her food when she read that – she laughed so hard. 🙂

      • Suicide Blonde July 4, 2013


    • Fifi July 4, 2013

      It’s just as funny as when people talk about how Madonna is an old hag looking w****, her man arms and hands and her crypt keeper looking face. Oh, and how she slept with TONS of dj’s, record execs, producers etc. to get where she is today. Oh, and how she is an egotistical megalomaniac HAHAHAHA So funny. 🙂 I see what you mean. It’s hilarious !!!!

    • JOHNVIDAL July 5, 2013

      We won´t judge you. But let me just say Madonna is looking absolutely HORRIBLE, especially in the face. It´s a f****** disaster. If you get so much surgery at least you should do it like Cher and look good. If it´s not going to look good on you (everybody´s faces and skin is different) it´s better not to touch it that much. Not to mention her face is so hairy now, and her arms and especially hands are a veiny disaster.
      About Mariah: I would say she looks absolutely stunning for her age right now. For her the most difficult thing to maintain is her weight, but she ages so much better than Madonna, especially in the face, and that´s the most important thing when it comes to beauty: the face. Of course she is younger. But you know, I find kind of weird you had to comment about Mariah like that. When she just gave these great performances. Weren´t you saying the other day Madonna outsings Mariah in 2013???????? LOLOLOL Madonna can barely speak for a while if the crowd is too loud. I´ve seen her struggling to finish a speech at some MTV awards a few years ago, not even her speaking voice was able to not break when she had to talk louder than usual.
      How is it going in California hun? 🙂

  3. steph July 4, 2013

    I knew Mariah could still sing live. She is just so f****** lazy nowadays. Maybe its because she is more concernded with being a mother now instead of a full time POP star. But I don’t care what anyone says. I really enjoyed Hero performance. She changed up the vocal runs and it was COMPLETELY LIVE. She sound good not amazing but good. Mariah stop being lazy start putting in the work again please!

    • JOHNVIDAL July 5, 2013

      Sorry but she sounds more than good. I mean these performances alone now, in 2013, after all the vocal decline and vocal pressure and over use, are better and her voice is better and more special than a newbie like Ariana Grande with a “virgin” voice. That´s how good she is.

    • JOHNVIDAL July 5, 2013

      Probably suffering a meltdown…

  5. DOSSOME July 4, 2013

    Just watched the HERO performance,OMGGGGGG,PURE SLAYAGE!!!!!!!!!!!


      I heard it was lipped. Could you post it for me please??

      • DOSSOME July 4, 2013

        IT WAS LIVE!!!!!!Who does multiple takes of her song to sound perfect then settles for a backtrack???twitterverse is hailing my queen

      • steph July 4, 2013

        Nope, it was live. I saw it on my HD television it was live she was talking and singing at the same time. She even added new notes for HERO. I loved it.

    • JOHNVIDAL July 5, 2013

      Even her speaking voice before starting “Hero” sounds like pure slayage 🙂

  6. cde July 4, 2013

    She CAME SHE conquered. #MariahFourthofJuly lessors take notice all others #staypressed #DropsMike

    • JOHNVIDAL July 5, 2013

      Yaaasss!!! lol

  7. cde July 4, 2013

    As usual TGJ retracts his balls and stays silent on the SHADE since there is none to throw #BowDown the True vocal #Queen hath spoken

    • FAF July 4, 2013

      So would you rather them shade her? They’re giving props… Y”all ask for too much

  8. JARED (WHITE DUDE) July 4, 2013

    She sounded, absolutely, terrific and Miguel is just Gorgeous.

    It’s genuine performances, such as these, that remind me why I am a fan of Ms. Carey-Cannon

    1990 – 2013 & she’s still going strong.

    #Respect. 😉

    • iris July 4, 2013


      • JOHNVIDAL July 5, 2013

        She is more imitated more now in 2013 than ever! The power of timeless true greats…

    • JOHNVIDAL July 11, 2013

      Strong baby!


    I’m only excited for the ‘America the Beautiful’ performance TBH. She slayed it in 1990 and in 2005 and I’m sure she did again in 2013.

  10. Ghetto July 4, 2013



    • JOHNVIDAL July 5, 2013

      She slayed hun!

  11. The One July 4, 2013

    Yes Mariah, you did your thing this go around. You showed the the naysayers yet again, why you are the Queen of vocals!!

    • JOHNVIDAL July 5, 2013

      A true queen!

  12. Lovebird July 4, 2013

    Rihanna’s 14th VEVO certified video for the Madonna of the digital era. Most viewed artist on Youtube/Vevo and has the most subscribers of all VEVO channels with 9 million subscribers. Next, take a bow.


      Is that Leona Lewis in your avi?

      • Lovebird July 4, 2013

        Yassss, love her “Glassheart” album, “Lovebird” is my song. The girl has got some serious pipes.

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) July 4, 2013

        Oh, so that would explain your username. & thank god you got over the Rihanna twitter thing, I missed you.
        Yeah, Leona does have a beautiful voice but,

        Ariana>>> Leona

      • steph July 4, 2013

        Im so happy for Rihanna, she is truly a successful pop star. Love Her

      • Lovebird July 4, 2013


        I like Ariana, I play “the way” on RIHpeat but I give Ariana 2-3 more years for her to be better than Leona.

        Ariana is extremely talented but is inexperienced, she needs to horn her skills and slay like she is meant to do. She’ll own the other Nick/Disney girls (Selena, Miley, Demi) once she develops her voice.

  13. Suicide Blonde July 4, 2013

    She lookes gorgeous with the purple dress.

    • steph July 4, 2013

      Yes She Did!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Love, My Mimi *Tears*


      Do you know/watch a reality competition show called “Big Brother?”

      • Suicide Blonde July 4, 2013

        No, why?

  14. bibi93 July 4, 2013

    Very good Mariah

  15. JARED (WHITE DUDE) July 4, 2013

    Admittedly, I was not too much a fan of the ‘Hero’ performance.

    However, I am glad that she sung it in the key in which she was most comfortable in and did not strain her upper register in trying to hit the high, belted, notes during the songs bridge.

    She looks radiant nonetheless. 😉

    • RP2 July 4, 2013

      I agree.

  16. DOSSOME July 4, 2013

    Even Mariah is really appreciative of the responses she’s getting for HERO,& they will still say she’s arrogant…That song will NEVER die…i heard she performed 4TH OF JULY too but that wasn’t aired


      Lol, Mariah is definitely not “arrogant.” I love the HERo performance, her voice sounded amazing. notice how the haters aren’t on this post; because they know they can’t accuse her of anything this this time.

      Omg, i was listening to 4th of July earlier. It would be nice if she performed that.

      • DOSSOME July 4, 2013

        The “ones” that are on this post are very discrete 😉 …I was nervous for her and she just slayed that HERO performance..i’m so thrilled..

      • Suicide Blonde July 4, 2013

        The “ones” that are on this post are very discrete

        Haha i know, you think i’m one of those, i have love for everybody 🙂

      • DOSSOME July 4, 2013

        Why would i accuse you of hating anyone dahhling…you know i love you,right?

    • JOHNVIDAL July 5, 2013

      I´ve seen a short clip of Mariah doing “Fourth of July” acapella. The nerve to say she can´t sing in 2013 and that even Rihanna or Madonna can outsing her… omg haters were really believeing their own hype lately. Just like how those few JLo stans were believing their own hype last May when both women were releasing their singles at the same time. What happened? LOL Now that I´m mentioning them… were are they? Their hate only lasted a couple of weeks lol. Well, probably it was just one with multiple user names, as usual.


    Was Miguel wearing make up??

  18. Rosie July 4, 2013

    She did decent but of course no one will talk about this since no one was watching.


      LOL, So I guess You’re NO ONE since you watched??

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) July 4, 2013


      • Lovebird July 4, 2013

        Honey, Rihanna can give all the bad performances she wants, she gets STANDING OVATIONS at the Grammy’s, your fav is the one who has something to prove considering the PUBLIC BASHING she got for that mess of a performance. Do you need reminding??

      • Rosie July 4, 2013

        And yet Lana’s performance is still more iconic while Rihfund’s performance was forgotten the next morning.
        Call me when Chrisopologetic, Horse, J.H**, Ulcer, Cedric, or any of your other flop avi faves’ last album outsells Born To Die.

      • Lovebird July 4, 2013

        @Rosie: And yet Lana’s performance is still more iconic while Rihfund’s performance was forgotten the next morning.

        First of all, TOTAL DEATH at Lana’s performance being “iconic”, badly iconic maybe but certainly not “iconic” in a good way.

        Secondly, Rihanna has gotten MORE THAN ONE STANDING OVATION at the Grammy’s and her 1 performance of “stay” at the Grammy’s made it a WORLDWIDE hit in addition with a STANDING OVATION, you don’t get more iconic than that.

        Rihanna doesn’t have to prove she can sing to anyone, the fact that she gets STANDING OVATIONS at the Grammy’s prove she is a good singer/performer and Lana is never going to touch her.

      • Rosie July 4, 2013

        No one gives a s*** if Riherpes got a standing ovation, Lana has them too, just not at the Grammys (which are a joke at this point).
        Haha @ Rih being a good performer. Reception for the Diamonds tour are mixed at best, not to mention the scathing reviews posted by major newspapers/magazines.

    • MIMI LORD July 4, 2013

      b**** you’re reaching… of course this page will full of hate comments if she redo the BET disaster…. Now haters are clocked Ahahahahha… BYEEEEEEEEEE….

    • DOSSOME July 4, 2013

      LOL…holding onto that compliment for dear life

    • JOHNVIDAL July 5, 2013

      Weren´t you among the ones saying Lana can outsing Mariah now? And Rihanna, Madonna and others can do it too??? lol Not even a new good vocalist (well not that good, especially not original) like Ariana Grande can outsing Mariah now, in 2013! It is what it is. I want Lana (who I love) to try America The Beautiful is this big arrangement… or even #Beautiful! 🙂

  19. JARED (WHITE DUDE) July 4, 2013


    Hero: 2.5/5

    #Beautiful: 4/5

    America the Beautiful: 5/5!!!

    I know that performance was, clearly, dubbed but wow… She sounded, absolutely, incredible and breathtaking.


    • JOHNVIDAL July 5, 2013

      Honey Hero was amazing too, even her speaking voice before that performance sounds so damn good. Mariah is in another league. She´ll last forever.


    Celine better step aside, Mariah is the queen of the universe.

    • JOHNVIDAL July 5, 2013

      LOL leave my Celine out of this 🙂
      Both Mariah and Celine are the last real huge ones we have (I mean, the youngest who became huge ones)

  21. Rtp July 4, 2013

    Leave it to lambs to over exaggerate a Mariah performance. It was good, and I’m glad she is back to singing live. There are just way better singers in this day and age. People would know that if they turned off iTunes and went to concerts of singers who aren’t famous…(indie artist,local artist etc)
    3.4/5 Performance! Good job Mariah!!
    Very solid showing of her still being able to sing!!

  22. Common Sense July 4, 2013

    Good lord I was so nervous for this performance! She knocked it out of the park and then some especially with America the Beautiful. I wish she would care this much about live performances more often.

    • JOHNVIDAL July 5, 2013

      Her voice is Gold!

    @SLAYRIAH CAREy, this (Beautiful) was a great performance. I still feel that she’s lazy, but she has a legacy to be so, unlike some people who hasn’t done a thing in music and think they can just sit and sing (Tamar!) Now cleary Nick forgot “Female” in that best seller part.


      Girl stay the f*** in your lane. What do you mean she has a legacy to be lazy? You always come up with some dumb s***. Lol, I thought you learned your lesson after I showed you Mariah was no “Studio Singer” that you claimed she was “from the start.”

      • Mark111 July 4, 2013

        No, you didn’t “show” me anything. Like I said, sitting, I’m sorry, laying down while performing is lazy at it best. I still not seen an epic MC show, and his was good in a “at least she sang LIVE… most of the time. I wouldn’t even put her in the top 5 vocal list.

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) July 4, 2013

        Are you f****** serious?? I posted nearly 100 performances. Yeah, I didn’t post actual videos BECAUSE I was on my phone and that would take time. I’m pretty sure you could have searched on youtube for one of the performances I posted, but then again, You were probably scared to be proven wrong.

        Keep in mind, you said that she has a legacy of being lazy. I’m pretty sure that she wasn’t laying down when she was in her prime. It would have been better if you said she “got lazy” instead of “she has a legacy of being lazy.”

        Well, Christina isn’t in the top 10 vocalists so #sit.

      • Mark111 July 4, 2013


        I said “I still feel that she’s lazy, but she has a legacy to be so..” as in she done enough work in these 23 years to be lazy is she wants (although it’s pretty diva-ish) See, you people on here can’t comprehend s***! So read a book and then come back at me. BTW, I can’t stop listening to this…

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) July 4, 2013

        Okay, well you should have made that clear. & I still don’t like you cuz you are a b****. MAriah has WAY BETTER vocal performances than that btw.

      • Mark111 July 4, 2013

        I love you too @Slayriah, lol

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) July 4, 2013

        You don’t love me, you dislike me, but the feelings are mutual. #DelusionalButch

  28. COMMON July 4, 2013

    SHE SOUNDED A F****** MESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The B**** can’t even sing ‘Hero’ anymore.


    Tired ass.

    Why is it aretha franklin, patti labelle, diana ross, tina turner, charlie wilson, natalie cole, barbra streisand etc… can sing betta than this h** and they’re like 30 years old. i cant.

    • Common Sense July 4, 2013

      I’d love to see them sing ANY of Mariah’s songs without sounding like a complete train wreck. B**** you forget that Mariah’s songs are a completely different level than any other artist’s when it comes to difficulty.

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) July 4, 2013

        Yes, Her songs are more difficult to sing than whitney’s.

    • JOHNVIDAL July 5, 2013

      Desperate hater!

  29. LaBontellaKeeéshuh July 4, 2013

    Can we please discuss why she was sitting down the whole performance? That was sketchy, how hard would it be to be reaching those high notes sitting down? And on the close up shots, why were her pants undone? And the back of the pants was so low on her bottom.

    • JOHNVIDAL July 5, 2013

      What are you talking about? lol Wow the desperation…

  30. Slaylor Swift July 4, 2013

    She did decent…. But Taylor did AMAZING TONIGHT!!

    • Common Sense July 4, 2013

      Taylor sounded like s***, let’s not pretend. Her voice sounded thinner than her non-existent figure.

      • Slaylor Swift July 4, 2013

        she sounded better then your pitchy fav tho.

    • JOHNVIDAL July 5, 2013

      LOL Taylor is on Ke$ha´s level vocally. People like Rihanna, Lana del Rey or Katy Perry clearly outsing her. I mean, how do you dare to leave a negative comment on a Mariah Carey post?

  31. Fifi July 4, 2013

    Awesome performances ! Anyone still calling Mariah fat after she lost all that weight has serious body issues themselves. She looks good. I’d rather a person look healthy than rail thin. That s*** aint cute.

  32. Lovebird July 4, 2013

    People need to stop hating, she did good.I especially loved her performance of Hero, Mariah has still got it. In fact, she never lost it.


    What has Christina Aguilera been up to lately? Haven’t heard about her in a while.

  34. Lovebird July 4, 2013

    I’m going to post this mess here so everyone can see this; @Rosie: And yet Lana’s performance is still more iconic while Rihfund’s performance was forgotten the next morning.

    First of all, TOTAL DEATH at Lana’s performance being “iconic”, badly iconic maybe but certainly not “iconic” in a good way.

    Secondly, Rihanna has gotten MORE THAN ONE STANDING OVATION at the Grammy’s and her 1 performance of “stay” at the Grammy’s made it a WORLDWIDE hit in addition with a STANDING OVATION, you don’t get more iconic than that.

    Rihanna doesn’t have to prove she can sing to anyone, the fact that she gets STANDING OVATIONS at the Grammy’s prove she is a good singer/performer and Lana is never going to touch her.

    • Rosie July 4, 2013

      By your logic the SNL performance led to Lana’s album selling almost 4 million worldwide. And it’s STILL more iconic than anything the horse in your avi has ever done.

  35. XX July 4, 2013

    Much Better.I’m getting sick of her high notes. She doesn’t need to have them and every song she does. I also wish she would sing more songs from her last album instead of all the old ones.I hope on this new album she showcase all of her voice range not just the high parts.

  36. JARED (WHITE DUDE) July 4, 2013


    Yes, Her songs are more difficult to sing than whitney’s.

    Wait. What? Seriously? Stop it Babe…

    In their primes:

    Mariah would have never been able to sing “Run To You, I Have Nothing, I Will Always Love You, Didn’t We Almost Have It All and He/I Believe” with the equal amount of ‘Power, Resonance and Soulful Showmansip’ of Whitney’s voice.

    Just as…

    Whitney would have never been able to sing: “Vision Of Love, Emotions, Can’t Let Go, Butterfly and Honey” with the equal amount of ‘Range, Musicality and Versatility’ of Mariah’s voice?

    Mariah was a ‘Dramatic/Lyric Colourutura Soprano’ with a much stronger and flexible upper register.

    Whitney was a ‘Lyric Mezzo-Soprano’ with a much stronger and weightier mid-register.

    BOTH of them have different voices and couldn’t sing eachother’s songs.

    • RP2 July 4, 2013


      That B**** is always tryna shade queen whitney. I can’t with her thick ass…

      • JARED (WHITE DUDE) July 4, 2013


        Don’t get me wrong, I love my Babe @Slayriah; there is no need to curse him out. I just think he was wrong on this ocassion.

        But, each to his own I suppose… 😉

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) July 4, 2013

        Shut up, I never shaded whitney, maybe Celine but NEVER Whitney.

    • COMMON July 4, 2013

      Thank You!!!!!!!

      They both have different voices,,, why is that h** and other lambs always tryna compare and say who is better?

      I like Whitney more but I would never say that she had a better voice than Mariah or vice-versa.

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) July 4, 2013

        LMFAO. But why are you calling me a “h**??”


      I agree with what you just said but I meant Mariah’s songs are more diffiult to sing for the typical singer, for example American Idol Contestants and other amateurs.

      In my opinion, Mariah’s voice is much more unique than Whitney’s. For a singer to take on a Mariah song, It requires ridiculous technique and timeing. Whitney’s songs are mainly about sustainability and power (which is more common among vocalists IMO). I’ve been watching these siging comps for a long time and I’ve noticed those trends; They struggled to sing Mariah’s songs and would often nail Whitney’s.

      • JARED (WHITE DUDE) July 4, 2013

        Yes, there is some truth to what you’re saying.

        However, that’s the paradox and enigma of both Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey, in my opinion: Whitney always sung a song differently when she sang in a live setting in comparison to Mariah who always, virtually, sang a song the same when she sung live.

        Also, the reason why I think Whitney held back on most of her studio recorded songs, which is why you think they were just about ‘sustainability’, especially in the early years, is because she came out at a time when it wasn’t palatable for Black female artists to crossover – thus Clive Davis made her sing in a ‘White-esque singing style’ in order to sell whereas Mariah, at first, was seen as the ‘White Girl who sounded Black’ so if she sang her songs in an overtly- melismatic/gospel style, it was inevitable that she would sell millions, which is why her recording are much more soulful in comparison to Whitney’s.

        Do you see the racialist politics of America?

        By the way, you cannot tell me that people “nail” ‘I Will Always Love You & I Have Nothing’? They can barely “nail” ‘I Wanna Dance With Somebody & The Greatest Love Of All’. LOL. 🙂

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) July 4, 2013

        Yes, I see what you are saying.

        I remember when Jessica Sanchez sang IWALY on American Idol and I thought she completely nailed it (she recieved a standing ovation from the judges). She then sang ‘My All’ and she had a real difficult time singing it.

        The main point that I’m trying to make is that Whitney’s vocal type is more common than Mariah’s, which is why i believe the latter’s songs are much more difficult to sing.

        Imaging Jennifer Hudson or Christina Aguilera trying to sing ‘My all’. I couldn’t even picture that struggle. lol, no shade, but I’m 100% sure that they’d be better off singing songs such as Run to you, Greatest Love of All, etc.

        I’ve never been good @ explaining things but I hope you get what I’m trying to say.

        Btw, It’s so fascinating how Mariah can transition from one range to the next so effortlessly. I’ve never really seen Whitney do that Tbh.

      • JARED (WHITE DUDE) July 5, 2013


        Oh yes, I definitely agree.

        But that’s what I said before.

        Mariah is a “Lyric, Coloratura Soprano” – A very agile light voice with an extremely high upper extension, capable of fast vocal coloratura. They key word here is ‘Coloratura’ – Singers with ‘Coloratura abilities’ can perform vocal runs, riffs, trills and wide octave leaps with extreme ease as rapidity which is why, in general, it is hard for the average singer to sing any of Mariah’s songs because the average singer does not possess coloratura abilities as well as a high, upper chest/whistle register.

        The only con is that they lack full, resonant vocal power…

        Do you understand what I’m saying.

        Whitney, on the otherhand, is a “Lyric Mezzo Soprano” – Their voices are often light, smooth and sensitive but much more rich and heavier in vocal weight which is why they can sustain full notes for longer periods of time – this is common for the average female singer.

        So, yes Babe… I think Whitney can’t do what Mariah does and vice-versa. 😉

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) July 5, 2013

        Ohh mann, I need to meet you one day, you could really teach me a lot and then we could do other things. lol

        & i agree with what you said even though I still think mariah is the best vocalist. I guess it’s just a matter of taste. I know you think whitney is best so we’ll just have to agree to disagree. <3

      • JARED (WHITE DUDE) July 5, 2013


        Okay. That’s absolutely fine.

        Whitney will always be my #1 Female vocalist – I am most definitely a “stan”.

        I love Mariah, but she’ll always be second to Whitney, in my opinion.

        And LOL… One day. I just might give you my E-Mail. 🙂 🙂 🙂

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) July 5, 2013

        I’m pretty sure Suicide Blonde already has your e-mail. #oops. Lol.

  37. B****** ARE A MESS July 4, 2013

    I love me some mimi, but why she had MIGUEL looking like an outside slave??

  38. MC July 4, 2013

    Great performances Mimi.

    To the haters: *I can see through you like you bathe in a Windex.* Stay grasping as straws. 23 years and they’re still pressed, many more years will follow.


      The haters are obsessed.
      I’m so glad you like the performance because out of all the Lambs here, you seem to be the toughest on Mimi’s performances. lol, Dossome always seems to love her performances. 😀

      • MC July 5, 2013

        I did. She wasn’t lipping for the heavens like she did for the BET Awards. That was such a honest mess. 😆

        It’s all good now.

      • POP ROYALTY [RUDE BOY] July 5, 2013

        Ok, If anyoen mentioned ” It’s like that” i just wanted to let you know I stan for this song.

        Also i loved the above performance ^^^ . #DIVA

      • JOHNVIDAL July 5, 2013

        I´ve been playing The Emancipation of Mimi today in the car. Mainly “It´s like That”. So in the mood for that song today. And I know you´ve always loved it. It´s probably one of the songs I´ve played the most from the Emancipation album sonce 2005. Maybe not among the best in the album, but personally I love it.

      • JOHNVIDAL July 5, 2013

        I also loved that intro. That “simple” lipped intro is above most young singers today 🙂

      • POP ROYALTY [RUDE BOY] July 5, 2013

        I Love this Song 😀

        words fail to describe my love status.

        I love TEOM , I feel it is the Signature album of the New Improved MC.

        like it has ” we belong together” for god’s sake , who doesn’t like this song ?

        TEOM had major “gems” , Why the f*** she didn’t release “Circles” for example as a Single ?

        her and rihanna p*** me off when they don’t release the best songs in their albums as singles.

        well lemme stop stanning for MC as my Status as a Navy started to be questionable. 😛

        Somehow My Love life Enjoy her songs, IDK why is that!!!

  39. DOSSOME July 4, 2013

    Now imma need my Mariah to be more consistent and put in work in her upcoming performances…This is the quality performances she should be serving.She should retire #Beautiful now


    At least Rihanna has good performances. Lana still doesn’t have a strong performance yet. Rihanna completely slayed and destroyed everything Lana has ever done when she performed Diamonds/We Found Love on Xfactor.

    • Rosie July 4, 2013

      Are you bringing up that mess of a performance to defend Rihfund? Forgotten the next morning in the UK, just like Lana’s Saturday Night Local performance had no impact on her sales worldwide.

  41. jason July 4, 2013

    This confirms for me that Mariah has nodules!

    If you can sing this well there is only one thing that will force you to randomly lip sing a whole song at an awards show and thats if you have a condition that forces u to.

    I think she has nodules that act up!

  42. DOSSOME July 4, 2013

    “Much better Mariah!Thanks for the reminder of your abilities”


    Awww Samantha..I know you had an elaborate “essay” typed just waiting for the show to turn out as you would’ve wished…Too bad 🙂

      @sam is a Guy.

    • JOHNVIDAL July 5, 2013

    i applaud @Suicide for not being his FULLY normal shady ass.

    MIMI served everything.

    I don’t care if she lipped or sang live, it is still her voice.

    and “CIARA” leaked in full MP3 and iTunes versions. #Oops

    As for Lana Del Rey… @Lovebird/Slayriah/Rosie

    I do believe she is talented. Very talented actually, especially in the song-writing aria.

    I love her awkwardness. In my opinion, this performance is the perfect, most melodramtic, combination of ‘ethereal’ and ‘mystique’ I’ve ever seen.

    She is an emotive singer.

    • DESPERATION July 4, 2013

      I love your honesty and opinions Jared.

      Lana isn’t all that bad… she doesn’t have much range or versatility but she uses what she has.

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) July 5, 2013

        She’s still garbage to me and the fact that her one fan has the audacity to come for Rihanna who is way better than Lana is just puzzling..

    • Rosie July 5, 2013

      Thank you.
      And that’s not even her best performance, but it’s still beautiful. To be honest you’re one of the few sane posters on here, very honest.

        Lana del Rey would be better without you stanning for her really.

    • JOHNVIDAL July 5, 2013

      Of course Lana del Rey is talented. She has created her own style and listening to her songs is so damn pleasant to me. She´s a great songwriter and she is also very involved in her great videos I think. Obviously, she is not good live (in general), but she admitted it the same month she debuted in the music industry. I really like her. It´s her only stan in this site the one creating controversy and backlash.

  45. POP ROYALTY [RUDE BOY] July 4, 2013


    your Comments are iPad-Compatible or what ?

    I enjoy Lana’s Studio Albums and her creative Vintage Music videos, fashion sense, and I almost Reblog everything she does in Tumblr 😆 , but she is #2 after Rihanna when it comes to ” not to see Live YT videos of” List.

    Now this is the Mariah I’ve been waiting for. Much better than that lip syncing mess.


      I like the other Ariana Stan (DAYDREAMIN) more than you.


    Lol. I’m surprised that there are people from countries such as Egypt and Syria that know about this site. I guess Samantha is going global.

    • POP ROYALTY [RUDE BOY] July 5, 2013

      yes, Lots of my friends from Middle-east know about TGJ.

  50. DOSSOME July 5, 2013

    @Slayriah…Hahaha,Believe me,i’m really critical of Mariah but i’d rather criticize her on forums where lambs make the majority than on this site where people simply want to insult everything about her……I’m more strict than @JohnVidal though though 🙂

    • JOHNVIDAL July 5, 2013

      LOl That´s not true!

  51. HOTSTUFF July 5, 2013




    • JOHNVIDAL July 5, 2013

      Yes the album is going to be FIRE!

  52. Theman July 5, 2013

    Madonna has not sold that much more than MC. MC has outsold her nearly everywhere. Madonna is great in EUrope cause of the style of music. In the US,Brazil,Can,Braz,Asia MC>>>>…. She was above incredible. Sam is a bum, u should’ve been writing how outstanding she was. She is in another league….

    • JOHNVIDAL July 5, 2013

      Yes when she does incredible he just says “it´s nice to know you still got it Mariah”, but when it is not the best of her performances he writes an essay as if she was less important for doing a not that good performance…

  53. Todd July 5, 2013

    Yes, good job Mimi! Hero is one of my least fav songs, but she makes it work live ! Great!

  54. rih rox July 5, 2013

    I want that pink top so bad.

  55. rih rox July 5, 2013

    Wow. Pop royalty. What amazing body you have & your glowing skin I think I’m in love.

    • POP ROYALTY [RUDE BOY] July 5, 2013


      Thanks. 😉

  56. JOHNVIDAL July 5, 2013

    Mariah´s voice is like honey!!! I f****** adore it.
    And the #Beautiful song is pure Summer!!! Going to the beach right now 🙂

  57. JOHNVIDAL July 5, 2013

    And OMG she looks spectacular!
    So excited about the album.

  58. Damo July 5, 2013

    YAAAAAS!!!!!!! She smashed it!!!!!!

    Mimeriah Lipsyncry

  60. Brazilian Beyonce!!! July 5, 2013

    Amazing this was beautiful but I still prefer beyonces Macy 4th of july!

  61. PAINFUL BUTTERFLY July 5, 2013

    American Idol… BET Awards… Now this? Mariah, what are you going through boo? You keep getting more boring and your hand movements can’t compensate your horrible lip syncing. S T O P.

    • JOHNVIDAL July 5, 2013

      Yeah right…

      • PAINFUL BUTTERFLY July 5, 2013

        yeah right her lip syncing isn’t horrible? or that her hand gestures can’t compensate for em? lol

  62. JOHNVIDAL July 5, 2013

    After spending the whole day in a good mood thanks to finding these videos and Mariah´s #Beautiful voice this morning, I just want to watch this again and again. So good!
    #Beautiful performance is the best so far, and not only by Mariah but also by Miguel. He has been struggling to do it nice in the previous performances (of course people only focus on Mariah)
    Hero: amazing. I even liked her speaking voice and charisma in that little speech before singing the song.
    America the Beautiful: damn omg. I though she was not in good vocal condition enough to nail that in the spectacular way she did it in 2005 during The Emancipation´s era. But she really did it again. With 2013 vocals and nailing that? Who else? Only true greats 🙂

  63. JOHNVIDAL July 5, 2013

    Miguel is really beutiful too btw.

  64. JOHNVIDAL July 5, 2013

    Songs of the day:
    1. It´s like That (Mariah)
    2. We belong Together (Mariah)
    3. #Beautiful (Mariah)
    4. Let the Groove in (Justin Timberlake)
    5. Summertime Sadness (Lana del Rey)
    6. Bloody Mary (Lady Gaga)
    7. You´ve got the Love (Florence+The Machine)

  65. DOSSOME July 5, 2013


    LOL,i can only imagine how thrilled you are with Mimi’s showing yesterday…You’ve literally taken over the entire post 😀 …When i heard Hero,i knew she wasn’t playing…WHEN MIMI RISES,HATERS SCATTER..

    • JOHNVIDAL July 5, 2013

      I know! lol Never done this before. But for some reason I was in Mariah Carey fan mode the moment I woke up today, and then I watched this, and then I had one of those nice days in the beach, and then here I am again and I don´t know: Life is beautiful, Mimi is goddess! lol at least today 🙂

      • POP ROYALTY [RUDE BOY] July 5, 2013

        yup, going to the beach makes your Vision more clearer and you really enjoy stuffs More and MORE.

        try playing ” I’ll be lovin’ you long time” while on the beach getting tanned and s*** and tell me what you think. 😉

        I will always believe in MC.

      • JOHNVIDAL July 6, 2013

        OMG yaaaassss! lol I´ve never listened to that song on the beach. Never thought about it. I´ll do it today. There aren´t many days we can go to the beach here.

    • JOHNVIDAL July 5, 2013

      Wow a Bee Gees week! Amazingly weird .

    • POP ROYALTY [RUDE BOY] July 5, 2013

      I’m sorry, but your list gonna be dismissed if you don’t have “emotions” …………

      that is my fav song of them.

  67. PRINCE MACHIAVEL July 5, 2013

    DEAD @People Talking About MC “Lip Singing” While They Stan For A Model With A Wic, F****** LMAO, Pure Joke!!!!!

  68. DOSSOME July 5, 2013

    @Prince Machiavel
    That’s what makes it all the more here have been nursing delusions far too long…But hun,why sudden disappearance?We really miss you over here 🙂


    You got no idea how obsessed i am with Bee Gees lately…I have every single album of theirs & their harmonies are out of this world.Phenomenal talent i tell you

  69. DOSSOME July 5, 2013

    @Pop…I’ve got all 3 versions of “Emotion” ..The original Samantha Sang version featuring Bee Gees is my favorite….I kinda like the Destiny’s Child version as well,it was interesting hearing Kelly do lead vocals for the 1st time

  70. POP ROYALTY [RUDE BOY] July 5, 2013

    by this comment , we are heading to the top of “most juicy” .

    I love Love Love Emotions by them , my mother used to play it when i was young and i have so much memories with this song.

    her taste is kinda weird though. 😆

    • POP ROYALTY [RUDE BOY] July 5, 2013

      that was a reply to @Dossome .

    • JOHNVIDAL July 6, 2013

      Don´t forget the most juicy of all right now is also a Mariah Carey post (and I barely commented on that one 🙂 ). Mariah is owning. Since early May when the new era began she has been in the top 5 hottest stories of the week in TGJ, almost every week. Of course she´s always there several times in the same week in that other blog… 🙂

      • POP ROYALTY [RUDE BOY] July 6, 2013

        dahhhling Divas always get it Right, remember that. 😉

      • JOHNVIDAL July 8, 2013

        But remember only “true divas”!

    • JOHNVIDAL July 6, 2013

      Oh and the 4th most juicy is thanks to her too!

  71. DOSSOME July 6, 2013

    @Pop…Weird???LOL,are you kidding me?The Bee Gees were the biggest music acts in the late 70s..My mum was so crazy about them and The Commodores…You should see how she worships her old LPs…Back then actually for a song to be Certified Gold,it needed to sell 1Million copies (platinum was 2Million) & Bee Gees were still scoring many Gold & Platinum hits in an era people would rather buy albums over singles,so i think your mum wasn’t the only “weird” one 😀

    Dead at this thread heading for the most juicy…it stalled at 185 comments for hours only for a “certain” lamb to go insane 😉

    • JOHNVIDAL July 6, 2013

      Hey! You guys watched this the same night it was broadcasted. I watched it here in the morning. I´m crazy about music but I still don´t spend my nights in this blog LOL

    • POP ROYALTY [RUDE BOY] July 6, 2013

      well, She Is Weird and her taste is even weirder . 😆

      I like them too, yes, i know what do you mean by “worshiping” their LPs, my mother is religious when it comes to “Abba” and stuffs like that, back in the day those people were relaxed and s***, the music was so good and diverse.

      she likes diana ross ” which i don’t even like” , Cher/sonny & cher, pink Floyd, Tina turner and the Bee Gees, like you would know how her taste gonna be like with those artists. 🙂

      yeah, this “lamb” is one of my All-time fav tho. 😉 😉

  72. JOHNVIDAL July 8, 2013

    So why didn´t TGJ make their list of hottest topics of the week? Oh yeah Mariah ruled the week, in her 24th year of career, it wasn´t their precious Beyonce or Rihanna, so better not post it right?

  73. JOHNVIDAL July 11, 2013

    A week later and these peformances still feel so right!

  74. money slavery September 22, 2013
