Watch: Mariah Carey Hits Better Notes On Asian Tour

Published: Friday 17th Oct 2014 by Sam

It’s fair to say Mariah Carey‘s vocals have been majorly elusive on her new tour ‘The Elusive Chanteuse Show’.

Yet, as the diva has shown time in and out, she’s not one to be counted out. For, she’s often just one move away from redemption or emancipation, if you will.

Such was the case during the trek’s stop in Tiajin, China yesterday. Because, when tasked with belting hits such as ‘Always Be My Baby’, the songbird sounded…better. Much…better.

See what we mean below…

Granted the video quality was jarring, the performance itself was respectable. It goes to show that with a measured effort to maintain her “new voice”, Mimi can sound solid.

More of this, please.

      Clearly, this is the end of days!! Lol!

    • RCi October 17, 2014

      There is nothing positive about that performance. Ive heard karaoke singers at my local bar sound better. If any other singer performed this way you would drag the life outta them.

      She still has a beautiful voice

    I’m giving her a break because it’s been years since she’s toured and her first since becoming a mother. Giving credit where it’s due, I’m glad to see her back in action. She has nothing left to prove to anybody.

    This is a clear improvement. Thanks for the
    no hateration write up, TGJ. Nice that you
    change that up once in a while.

    • NOLIES October 17, 2014

      You should chill on the shade, because Mimi doesn’t have a ghost writer coming out of the closet every week…

    Not bad but not amazing.

  5. Beysus October 17, 2014

    Damn. Poor Mimi…

    • Gregg October 17, 2014

      She is just so boring live, always have been….

  6. Theman October 17, 2014

    She sounds AMAZING !! This is her best show this far !!!! She just has to make the effort
    and put in the work.. Great Stuff MC !!!!

  7. cruz October 17, 2014

    Will she ever wear clothes that remotely fit her body? BTW she is incredibly pitchy – terrible

  8. Slay_Hive October 17, 2014

    I mean, she sounded okay. She just seems extra bored, and I’m sure the audience was bored as well.

  9. JOHNVIDAL October 17, 2014

    We already knew this Sam! And you too. The thing is you make all these dramatic posts about her on purpose the moment you can .Even if you know they are unfair cause she´ll do better next time, like she usually does.

  10. JOHNVIDAL October 17, 2014

    Her firt concert in Japan was clearly the worst. Her concerts in China are being better. For some reason her incredible but very fragile and changing voice was in a bad shape this October, like the worst I´ve heard it since 2008, but it often recovers and goes up and down as proved all these last years since 2008 for example. She´s here to saty, not to mention her musicianship and songwriting skills will always let her create albums and songs.

    • JOHNVIDAL October 17, 2014

      *here to stay

    • truth October 17, 2014

      she needs to lay off the alcohol then maybe her voice wouldn’t be having so many up and downs like Rihanna panties.

  11. Oinkriah scary October 17, 2014

    Porky still lip syncing her life away i see…

  12. Lil kim (The Queen of push backs and pay pal honey) October 17, 2014

    Her pot belly is back, oh glory

    • NOLIES October 17, 2014

      It only took your five minutes to make a new E-Mail address… that must be a troll record

      • Lil kim (The Queen of push backs and pay pal honey) October 17, 2014

        u madt?

  13. Theman October 17, 2014

    She’s been having a lot of fun on this tour. She’s been moving around and all..
    She ain’t hardly bored, and she sounds much much better
    than ok !! Great….

    • Video Girl October 17, 2014

      the lies yo tell yourself lmao

  14. louisa October 17, 2014

    One of her best live this year. Reminds us why she’s been one if the queens of pop! Just needed to use her voice more. She hasn’t toured in years, so probably isn’t used to using her voice day in and day out like she once did. Solid effort and performance 🙂

  15. NOLIES October 17, 2014

    She does WAYYYYYY BETTER, so good for her. She just has to get her confidence back and not be so stressed so her vocals won’t be restricted. Her album is nearly perfect though, but nothing tips The Emancipation of Mimi.

    • Nope October 17, 2014

      That album was a hot mess stop lying for mariah so she can stop being lazy and give us classic music again..

      • NOLIES October 17, 2014

        Sweetheart, we must’ve not listened to the same album… I can skip over Meteorite (even though I think she did it after seeing how badly people wanted to be famous after American Idol, so I understand it and it’s cute for a throwback to Diana & etc), Camouflage, & Money, but the rest of that album is it for me. I live for Cry., Make it Look Good (that melody is genuis), & FADED! I don’t think MC has put work out this good in 9 years.

  16. Kemar (@S_C_Jr on Twitter) October 17, 2014

    Good job Mariah. It seems as if her voice is improving with each show. Hopefully, whatever she’s doing, she keeps on doing it.

    Side note: Feel free to release Faded as a single. Ijs lol.

  17. BeyRihLiyah October 17, 2014

    why do people constantly drag Mariah so what if she doesn’t have her voice anymore she has used that voice for over 20 years so it is natural that she want be able to sing like she used to anymore At the end of the Day Mariah is a LEGENED who has OUTSOLD ALL OUR FAVES

  18. KA October 17, 2014

    Honestly it looked kind of boring to me. I love Mariah she has hits on top of hits but I like a show with movement(good to great dancing) ala Mrs. Jackson. If not, less standing in a ball room gown and posing for the majority of the show would be nice.

  19. Lindsay Lohan October 18, 2014

    She’s an amazing vocalist and an impeccable songwriter, but Mariah never was a live performer, and it doesn’t take anything away from her. However, in those rare moments that she gives a perfect performance, this who hear it will feel like we’ve ask just been saved, as Teri Hatcher once said.

  20. FutureCIARA October 18, 2014

    One of my fav MC songs EVER!

    She really progressed those live vocals in this show, Work Mimi

  21. Adrian October 19, 2014

    Mariah Carey has not a damn thing to prove to anybody. She has ousting, outsold, and out written EVERYBODY in this industry, past & present. Furthermore, she shouldn’t be nitpicked & criticized like some new artist. Shall we play the raw live audio feed fro
    m the VMAs and really discuss some vocals? LOL. Lastly, it’s no secret that Mariah has has vocal nodules her entire life. This is the longest break she has ever taken in the history of her career so she’s just trying to whip her voice back into shape. Clearly it’s working.
