Watch: Mariah Carey Has Vocal Malfunction On Opening Night Of ‘The Elusive Chanteuse Show’

Published: Saturday 4th Oct 2014 by Sam

When the dust has settled, Mariah Carey will inevitably go down as one of the greatest vocalists of all time. However, in the here and now, the singer’s instrument appears to need some fine-tuning.

For, after wrapping the first night on the Asian leg of her new tour ‘The Elusive Chanteuse Show’, disturbing footage has emerged of the diva struggling with a number of songs…only to sound MP3 magnifique on others.

See what we mean below…

Factually speaking, voices change. And while there exists ample debate as to what’s happened/happening to Mariah’s, we just wish she’d employ less obvious means of covering up the clear problem. A problem which has been increasingly apparent over the last 10 years of her career.

Like, for goodness sake; play around with the arrangement and tweak the band’s key to suit the “new” vocals. And if lip-synching, don’t do so to the CD versions of tracks from 1998. It’s embarrassing.

What’s more, we’ve also noted how – in recent years – Mimi has become accustomed to creating songs in the studio with vocals and arrangements that are near-impossible to recreate live. It’s a practice traceable to the flawless ‘Emancipation’ right up to this year’s ‘Elusive Chanteuse’ especially on tracks such as ‘Heavenly’. Sure, it makes for great listening, yet – if she insists on touring like she is now – it only leaves her with scrambled eggs on her face when videos such as this emerge.

There remains room for Mariah in today’s modern musical climate. She’s an icon and possess a skill-set and pen-game that many of her touted replacements over the years could only wish for. Yet, if she’s ever to become commercially relevant again to today’s music buyers, she needs to sort out her “product” and problems pronto.

      • SamisaTHOT October 5, 2014

    When the Rihanna’s version hit better notes, lol

    • NOLIES October 4, 2014

      Rihanna vocals? She didn’t sound THAT bad lol.

      • SamisaTHOT October 5, 2014

        I saw RIHANNAS SHOW…. Horrible vocals, lazy showmanship and drugged out; MARIAH IS BEYONCE AND RIRI INSPIRATION. BOW DOWN to THE GREATEST FEMALE VOCALIST ALIVE ANDBIN HISTORY: 250 million sold. MARIAH

  10. K October 4, 2014

    I know she have lost her voice, plus she is going through some marital stuff. i really hope she don’t do what some of these celebs have done and commit suicide. even though she and her fans have bin mean to Nicki Minaj, i still don’t wish death on her, i still like her[even though i am not a fan] and i bet Nicki does too. even though Mimi fans bin really mean, i won’t let because of them i act out of character and wish ill will to Mariah.

  11. boy October 4, 2014

    This site is really pathetic. Like… if this woman hasn’t been through enough lately. Just be happy that she hasn’t supposedly a drinking problem or that she isn’t eating her face round. She tries to be move on again. SHE TRIES. And she will get there. Pls don’t kick people further in to the ground while they try to stand up again. It’s really rude like whitney would say.

    • Yes. October 4, 2014

      That’s what these insecure, gay guys do. They have inferiority complexes, and the only way they can feel better is to talk $hit and tear others down.
      Pathetic.

      • Iggy Iggy To Biggie October 4, 2014

        Lol examples slayhive, lovebird, Sam, and futureciara

      • Slay_Hive October 4, 2014

        Don’t hide behind a troll account when addressing me!

      • FutureCIARA October 5, 2014

        ^^ Exactly

      • shaquinisha-rose October 5, 2014

        IIt has nothing to do with being gay. It’s just the insecure person. Don’t make it about someone’s sexuality.

      • SamisaTHOT October 5, 2014

        Yes the gay men are horrible all they do is tear others down; Like let’s be real MARIAH IS THE BIGGEST SELLING FEMALE IN HISTORY. 25 years in; BOW DOWN GO THAT LOSERS

  12. Slay_Hive October 4, 2014

    This is so embarrassing for her, but she’s still a better vocalist than Rihanna

    • Rima October 4, 2014

      At least rihanna doesn’t lip sync like bey

      • Slay_Hive October 4, 2014

        Rihanna should learn to lip sync. Her horrible live vocals sound nothing like her studio vocals.

      • Sass October 4, 2014

        @Rima Rihanna does lip sync. Don’t be delusional,

      • Tboz’sSideburns October 4, 2014

        Except for when she lip-synced through her Diamonds tour to pre-recorded vocals and they still sounded off-key – get yo life

    • FutureCiara October 4, 2014

      Embarrassing would be a baby bump folding or those HBO numbers 888k really?

      • Mimi Carey October 4, 2014

        Drag that a*** f**!!

      • Sass October 4, 2014

        @FutureCiara. Have Ciara’s last 3 albums sold 888k combined? THAT is embarrassing.

      • Slay_Hive October 4, 2014

        No b**** embarrassing is opening your legs for a dead beat ass n**** and thinking he was gone marry you. Cierror is a FOOL!

        I’m not gone even mention what a flop is. I have a feeling you know it and have accepted it. kii

      • Del Bey October 4, 2014

        Clara can’t even sell that many albums XD

      • Tboz’sSideburns October 4, 2014

        embarrassing would be He-error losing her baby daddy months after giving birth, and becoming another one of Future’s 5 baby mamas. embarrassing is the fact that the last time He-error sold more than 888K was in 2006, almost 10 years.

  13. Kisses Down Low October 4, 2014

    SCREAMING! Everyone could predict this Tour was going to be disasterous. The seethibg lambs finna come in here and try shift shade onto everyone elses fave.

    • Rima October 4, 2014

      Where’s kellys tour?

    • Mimi Carey October 4, 2014

      Coming from a Kelly NO-land stan? I won’t…

    • Del Bey October 4, 2014

      why is beyonces shadow talking about disastrous? what’s disastrous is the way bey has Kelly’s neck in the mud

    • SamisaTHOT October 5, 2014

      Honey KELLY IS A FAN OF MARIAH; if u were a real fan and not some angry gay cow you would now down also. KELLY LOVES MARIAH

  14. Iggy Iggy To Biggie October 4, 2014

    When you sound worse than Katy Perry its time to give it up.

  15. NOLIES October 4, 2014

    As badly as I want to shade her, except for that one clip,the rest weren’t bad. I won’t shade her. I’ll just pray for her. Becausehhonestly, anyone with eyes can see that Mimi is I’m her last years, and with EVERYTHING failing around her, she is CLEARLY going through hell. May God bless you. Poor thing. This is nothing but a repeat of seeing Whitney and MJ before they passed.

    • boy October 4, 2014

      OHHHH PLSSS. Don’t exaggerate. She will just be fine.

    • FutureCiara October 4, 2014

      So because her vocals are messy she’s gonna die? Chile

      • NOLIES October 4, 2014

        Chile look at those before her. You’re missing the bigger picture. She’s being destroyed to be missed when she’s gone. You’ll see. This isn’t the same flack the media gave Whitney, but it’s a start in that direction.

    • You Stupid October 4, 2014

      Bish shut up. Ain’t nobody order yo throwback psychic friends network readings… S*** died with Esther Rolle you washed up ol fake ass TGJ editor… There are no seats at the round table for your view, your chew, your talk, or your version of the real… _/ ….

    • Applause October 4, 2014

      Mariah slays beyhoe.. Mariah is a legendary vocalist, Beyonce is a legendary pu$sy popper

      • Beysus October 4, 2014

        And what is Gaga?? A legendary flop??? A legendary Madonna copyer???

      • Del Bey October 4, 2014

        and gaga is a fizzled out has been meat wearing w****

  17. Mimi Carey October 4, 2014

    Mariah is legendary diva. That’s why people still pay top dollar to see her perform. She’s going through some things, but her legendary status cannot be denied! She has had better vocal performances but your favs still could never.

    • Marley October 4, 2014

      Lol but Beyonce can project her voice live.

      • NOLIES October 4, 2014

        And Mimi did the same in other clips. I went and watched and saw TGJ strategically picked this clips. Same Mimi Dame, different quality and age.

      • Slay_Hive October 4, 2014

        B**** everyone knows Beyonce can sing live, and she does on multiple occasions. It’s understandable that she may lip some songs on tour, to protect her vocal cords. BYE!!

      • Marley October 4, 2014

        @Nolies I know. But Mariah struggles vocally, Beyonce does not. Her lipsyncing is to preserve her vocals whilst on tour. There’s a difference. But everyone knows Mariah slayed in her day, she just can’t do it anymore. Which is ok but only she’s having trouble admitting that.

      • Den October 4, 2014

        Actually Mariah admitted she isnt as good and struggle specially with low notes more that ever

      • SamisaTHOT October 5, 2014

        SHUT UP YOU SOUND STUPID BEYONCE HAS BERN LIPSINGING YO LIVE SOUNDING TRACKS FOR YEARS

    • Applause October 4, 2014

      Beyonce is always lipping.. I don’t respect that

      • Ri October 4, 2014

        lmao and so does gaga! she just yells “come on” ever once and a while.

  18. Junior in Jamaica October 4, 2014

    Yeah she lost that voice years ago and she fails to quit.

    Just STOP!

  19. let’s be real October 4, 2014

    i really don’t have much to say.
    i am flabbergasted, this chic ego is so big and…what?
    i love Mimi but she needs to..i don’t even know! i’m at a loss

  20. CATFISH CAREY October 4, 2014

    WOW IT BREAKS MY HEART TO SAY THIS BUT MIMI JUST CALL IT A WRAP AND RETIRE BEFORE YOU END UP LOOKING LIKE A BIGGER FOOL THAN KATY PERRY

    • Britney Stan October 4, 2014

      Katy actually out here selling albums

      • NOLIES October 4, 2014

        Britney is doing neither and giving away your album on Google Play isn’t selling

      • CATFISH CAREY October 4, 2014

        BUT HER LIVE VOCALS ARE FLATTER THAN A TYPICAL WHITE GIRLS ASSS

  21. Marley October 4, 2014

    Oh dear. Oh my. I honestly don’t think she should be performing on this scale anymore.

  22. Applause October 4, 2014

    Mess but Mariah is still a legend and more respected as a talent than Rihanna and Beyonce

    • Pour it Up October 4, 2014

      And Gargoyle.

    • ME October 4, 2014

      and all of them are more respected than Gaga

      • Applause October 4, 2014

        That’s a lie Gaga is the most respected artist our generation legends love her.

      • Applause October 4, 2014

        Of*

      • ME October 4, 2014

        lol the delusions

      • Naomi October 4, 2014

        @Applause. More legends praise Beyonce than Gaga.

      • Slay_Hive October 4, 2014

        No one even mentions GAGS anymore, and she can’t be too respected, her album hasn’t reach platinum and it’s almost been a year!kii

    • let’s be real October 4, 2014

      girl you be trying it.not with the FAD that was Lady Gaga.her name even sounds dated to say. Rihanna and Beyonce have way more respect than Gags ever will and at this moment Beyonce is the biggest star on earth.AGAIN so please spare us

  23. CareylikeMariah October 4, 2014

    WOOOOOOW TGJ you are the biggest hater alive… u chose to post the videos where her voice cracks a lil.. when there are countless other videos online of her SLAYING!!!! u are such an evil person

  24. RoyalKev October 4, 2014

    I really think it’s time to ease up on Mariah a little bit. I’m not a fan, but I have some compassion for everything she’s going through this year (especially with her divorce). Of course, we’re entitled to our personal opinions, but it’s nothing to gain from kicking a person while they’re down. Mariah’s appears to be an emotional person and I hope she doesn’t let things take it’s toll on her. I’m all for saying your piece, but so many singers constantly take a beating around here repeatedly. It’s easy to forget that these are people.

  25. Pour it Up October 4, 2014

    Wow I feel sorry for those people. Their eardrums must’ve really suffered!

    • Applause October 4, 2014

      Goathanna fans know the feeling huh

      • Pour it Up October 4, 2014

        Coming from a Gaga fan. Rihanna knows her boundaries and does not strain like Gaga and she has more range than Gagas monotone voice. #FactsOnly

  26. Wah October 4, 2014

    What does any other atist have to do with Mariah’s vocal decline? Im so sick of lambs bashing other artist,when Beyonce may lip from time to time but we know she still can sing(I mean she does like over 100 shows),Rihanna might not be that great of a singer but at least she knows her limits.This is nothing but a diva way past her prime, whos ego wont let her retire. We know all she accomplished great things but her vocals are too touch and go and she just needs to retire. Enough with tue stupid nodes on her vocals,if that were the case she wouldnt be able to talk.

  27. Stephon Maurice Jackson October 4, 2014

    She cannot sing anymore…. Sadly… This will be a repeat of Whitney Houston…

    • Carey, Mariah October 4, 2014

      STFU F*****! She can sing and sounds better than the screams you project when you’re getting the rest of your walls destroyed.

    • Notorious O.L.B October 4, 2014

      You are so right!

    • Jamie October 4, 2014

      Oh look its the bi polar ho

    • Naomi October 4, 2014

      Ok, y’all need to stop trying to tempt fate like that.

  28. Notorious O.L.B October 4, 2014

    Sam is right! Mariah needs to record using her new vocals and embrace the change in her voice. She wants to be on top so bad that she doesn’t realize she is ruining her brand/reputation. Yes she is a pop-culture icon … and yes she is a living legend, but that aside she can’t sing like she use to. She wouldn’t survive in a vocal battle with the likes of Jennifer Hidson, Christina Aguilera, and even Arianna Grande. Mariah has to many “Yes Men” around her, and that’s why her album flopped, she is Hollywood’s worst dressed diva and can’t sing. May Mariah Carey career R.I.P. #HerVocalsWillBeMissed

  29. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) October 4, 2014

    This is so embarrassing for her, but she’s still a better vocalist than Rihanna”

    Failed shade. She’s a better vocalist than Beyoncé too. Considering http://youtu.be/-86J0JZNKM8

      Oh look who came out of hiding lmao

      Bey >> Pigriah and Rihsplice

    • Slay_Hive October 4, 2014

      She is not a better vocalist than Beyonce in 2014, this video is proof. 😉 I tried to keep it cute, but don’t push me b****

  30. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) October 4, 2014

    This is so embarrassing for her, but she’s still a better vocalist than Rihanna”

      This weak h** is back? lol

      I hope slay hive destroys you

  31. Naomi October 4, 2014

    I respect Mariah’s past, but I don’t have sympathy for things like this. Some legends just cannot admit when their time has passed. It’s sad because the ignorant young kids are just gonna know her as the old shady diva who lip syncs a lot, over appreciation for her music and talent. She needs to stop.

  32. CATFISH CAREY October 4, 2014

    THE HIVE REALLY NEED TO SIT THEIR BOTTOM ASSES DOWN
    BEYONCE MAY BE RULING THINGS TODAY BUT SHE IS FAAAAR FROM ACHIEVING WHAT MARIAH HAS ACHIEVED OVER THE PAST YEARS

  33. But that’s really none of my business tbh October 4, 2014

    Girl this tea is too hot, and Mariah’s vocals lmao! what happened?

  34. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) October 4, 2014

    ^^^^
    Jennifer Hudson – shouts
    Christina Aguilera – her voice has deteriorated just as much if not worse than Mariah’s. Her “singing” had been screaming and hollering since 1991 chile let’s not.
    Ariana who what and when – that voice is basic AF. And At least Mariah’s whistle register is still intact unlike Ariana’s which never existed. #next

    • dirty laundry October 4, 2014

      You’re bothered Ariana fans aren’t even coming for pigriah in this post.

      Anyways you should be somewhere looking for Mariahs tragic vocals

      • NOLIES October 4, 2014

        You should be looking for Kelly’s vocals and label meeting to come via Skype.

      • Del Bey October 4, 2014

        you should be somewhere looking for Kelly’s platinum sales, keep looking boo, it might take a while

      The majority of the singles that has charted this era has been certified platinum can’t say the same for Lana’s Ultraviolence era the fact that she has to perform in cemeteries just shows how dead her career is the only thing that’s left is for her to bury it now kindly f**** off I don’t confabulate with morons that stan for Lady Gaga’s tea lady 🙂

      • Del Bey October 4, 2014

        A the REAL Kiii is the fact they yours truly still isn’t platinum after countless tv appearances and countless single releases, catch up to Born To Dies sales before you come #dismissed

      • Proud-Arianator October 4, 2014

        Girl worry about ultraflopence and why it isn’t good and I will worry about my favs album and all her hot one hundred hits 🙂 toddles

  36. dirty laundry October 4, 2014

    Do us all a favor and retire

    • Del Bey October 4, 2014

      has Kelly’s career even began?

  37. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) October 4, 2014

    That was obviously a response to the imbecile who compared Ariana to Mariah above me. I’ll look for Mariah’s vocals when you start the search party for Kelly’s platinum or, or let’s just make that her entire career.

  38. Savannah October 4, 2014

    Absolutely, positively TRAGIC! Mariah’s vocals have been shot for several years now. What made her think that she could tour with those invisible vocals? I love how pressed y’all are and have always been over Beyoncé who is clearly the superior vocalist in 2014. Beys vocals get better with time like fine wine while Mariah’s deteriorates like old bread.

  39. Stephon Maurice Jackson October 4, 2014

    Yall Lambs are delusional. Mariah Carey is doing nothing but repeating Whitney Houston. She needs to stop. This will only get worse. Mariah, needs to go retire & enjoy her success/money.

    I honestly, dont understand the reason of her doing this to herself. She DOES NOT have to work EVER again. Its almost like she is being forced to continue to do something she CANNOT do anymore. The way she’s been acting these days just reminds me of Whitney Houston & Michael Jackson… I hope THEY don’t kill Mariah. Cause, at this point. She’s worth more DEAD than she is alive. Its sad. Mariah you better leave the industry NOW. Cause, THEY coming for you… Just like they came for Nippy & MJ. Chile………

  40. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) October 4, 2014

    I mean like your faves Stan for my fave. Remember dat. 🙂

  41. Slay_Hive October 4, 2014

    “It’s sad because the ignorant young kids are just gonna know her as the old shady diva who lip syncs a lot,”

    *screams and spits out tea* LOOOOL POOR Mariah

  42. MC!! October 4, 2014

    Sam like to focus on her vocal but forget that her opening night was sold out. And forget that shes doing a arena stadium tour in places beyonce havent even touched or was successful in.

    • Savannah October 4, 2014

      Who cares? She doesn’t wanna see Bey behind a mic. 😉

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) October 4, 2014

        She made B***** wanna sing so why would she wanna see her lessor behind her microphone? Flawed logic boo \_

      • Slay_Hive October 4, 2014

        and now Bey is making Mooriah wish she could still sing 😉

    • NOLIES October 4, 2014

      They both would just lip sing,so what would be the point? Use logic.

      • Slay_Hive October 4, 2014

        who is your fave hun?

      • NOLIES October 4, 2014

        I don’t have one. They are all too demonic for my taste. But I love to see people like you seethe. Too funny.

      • Sass October 4, 2014

        @nolies. Beyonce sings majority of her shows live. Stop the exaggeration.

      • Slay_Hive October 4, 2014

        b**** please. This must be your troll account. The account you use to hide, to keep from getting dragged.

        B**** I will NEVER seethe over a troll 😉

      • NOLIES October 4, 2014

        @Slay-Hive: Troll account? B**** please. You are a troll. You get pressed over EVERY comment someone says about Beyoncé . They are DEMONIC puppets. I will NEVER STAN or love people I don’t know.

        @Sass: B**** STOP BEING DELUSIONAL!

      • Slay_Hive October 4, 2014

        B**** please provide a receipt of me getting pressed on every anti- Beyonce post.There are several on this post that I haven’t responded to, because it doesn’t matter. Bey is on top and all it takes is for me to mention Beyonce and you b****** automatically get pressed!

        I;m not a troll because anything I have to say, I can say with this account! 😉

        Also Beyonce does sing majority live on her tour. Hating ass b****

      • Sass October 4, 2014

        @Nolies. Delusional? There are plenty of receipts out there you can youtube babe.

      • Slay_Hive October 4, 2014

        They’re demonic puppets but you’re sitting on a dam blog discussing them. Go and read the damn bible!

  43. blue October 4, 2014

    this is what happens when you base you career on one specific gimmick… Mariah is nothing if she isnt the chick with the 5 octive range… And its something she is still trying to hold on too till this day, even in her prime days she was always singing her songs with these impossible notes, making it impossible for anyone else to sing and hard for herself to reproduce live. Which was commendable when she could pull the of or come close but there is a reason whitney was the voice, she knew how to to do live what she did in the studio and she knew her limits.

    • Stephon Maurice Jackson October 4, 2014

      1st of all, Whitney Houston damaged her voice too. Not, with just drugs but with singing with a HIGH larynx. Which is the MAIN reason why Nippy’s voice deteriorated. Whitney just possessed a better technique & had more POWER than Mariah. It was the choice of Tommy & Sony that made Mariah sing out of her range in the studio. She even said, they made her sing her songs twice as high. To appeal to that Nippy/Celine demographic. “Vision Of Love” was recorded WAY different on her demo version than the actual record. Sony/Tommy played a huge part in her vocal decline also…

      • blue October 4, 2014

        all im saying is she has a history of recording vocals she knows she couldnt pull of live. When whitney made her come back she she pulled it back to match more with her new vocal limitations… Mariah is still clinging to that ‘5 octaves’ when she can hardly do 3 convincingly.

      • Stephon Maurice Jackson October 4, 2014

        That’s True!

  44. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) October 4, 2014

    I bet the power bottoms working for this tragic as blog didn’t make a post on that mess ^ but they were quick as f*** to post on the #1 selling female of Soundscan. Awww, that dedication. 🙂

    • Del Bey October 4, 2014

      look who crawld back from the slums of the ghetto, no shade tho, I’m dragging for Mimi today

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) October 4, 2014

        Sorry I have no clue who you are. But thanks for the reply. God bless.

      • Del Bey October 4, 2014

  45. Kimbella October 4, 2014

    Mariah fans seem so jealous of Bey.

    • Del Bey October 4, 2014

      no boo, real hive members appreciate talent like mariahs, I’m hive and lamb so you’re point just became null

  46. Stephon Maurice Jackson October 4, 2014

    Anyways, I love Mariah. And, on a positive note. She looked pretty. The fans FROM the actual show have been twitting saying they ENJOYED themselves. So, as long as the fans are happy. Then, errrbody else opinions really dont matter. Sam, I know your gonna be posting 2834120389471203498 videos of each lil show. So, errrbody get ready for like 234523452352345 articles bashing/shading MC.

  47. Stephon Maurice Jackson October 4, 2014

    Why in THE hell would Mariah fans be jealous of Beyonce????????? \

    Child BYE!

  48. Del Bey October 4, 2014

    Sam you’re unsettling fixation with mariahs career is creepy, she is a legend and will always be, let her tour with sub-par vocals if she wants, she has nothing left to prove

    • NICKI IS QUEEN October 4, 2014

        I love drowning and f*** em only we know also! you’re my new fav on this site x can’t wait for the PP also, not long now!

  49. Lindsay Lohan October 4, 2014

    From what I’ve read, the visuals and the production are all impeccable. The voice, not so much. I just hope she does not get scared and lip the rest of her tours.

  50. Dossome October 4, 2014

    This first show is encouraging.She needs to work on her stage confidence and everything else will fall in line.This happened with her Charmbracelet Tour too,her first performance was messy in many places but as she progressed,she got better and better even pulling out vocals that rivalled her mid 90s voice.The same happened with her Australian shows just last year.She did have several highlights,including a cover of Billie Holiday/Diana Ross which unsurprisingly y’all won’t post.

    What is this with her dying????This is her first World Tour in years so of course things can’t get off to a perfect start.I’m sorry but some of y’all post the dumbest stuff.

    • NOLIES October 4, 2014

      I heard the Diana Ross cover. It was good, but I was referring to the fact that the industry destroys the images of legends and then they magically pass. I was only saying I hope it doesn’t happen to Mimi.

  51. Mya October 4, 2014

    Wow! What happen to her voice?!? We knew the reason why Whitney’s voice went … due to drugs. But what’s going on with Carey’s?

    • Del Bey October 4, 2014

      the voice naturally deteriorates, we are organic beings must u forget

  52. NICKI IS QUEEN October 4, 2014

    We all know this was gonna happen

  53. LB October 4, 2014

    Stop being so hard on Mariah Carey Sam, she is going through a hard time. At the end of the day, she is still a legend and the biggest and most successful female artist of the soundscan era.

    • NICKI IS QUEEN October 4, 2014

      Hey LB!

  54. Theman October 4, 2014

    This isn’t even that bad.. Sam u are a bytch.. U
    stay riding MC.. She just has to get her voice in
    shape.. She has to warm up..
    It was one song with something minor..

  55. The Boy Toy October 4, 2014

    We all know mariah doesn’t have it vocally anymore, but why should she stop if makes her happy? BTW I love her new album,

  56. RICHIE_RICH October 4, 2014

    Some of these comments are just awful. We all know MC voice isn’t like it was in the 90’s, but I feel she has nothing else to prove. She’ a living legend. MC wish you nothing but the best on this Tour.

  57. no October 4, 2014

    Y’all better keep Beyonce out of this. She gon be 65yrs old and stomping down stadiums around the world, like Tina Turner. She good, leave her.

        #888k I think that is a flop. The H.IV+ fagggs are the ones that must keep it cute

      • Jessica October 4, 2014

        Has Gaga SOLD 888k yet? Why are you forever worried about the Hive?

      • Slay_Hive October 4, 2014

        Has 888,000 people purchased FAGpop? I don’t understand why ya’ll let her flop like this. kii

        Half of the monsters are dead and the other half are delusional.

      • 1000 forms of Cake like Lady GaGa (Cheek to Cheek is #1) October 4, 2014

        Why did the H.IV+ faggss allow the OTR tour on HBO flop? Y’all were too busy trolling TGJ instead of supporting your tranny fave.

      • Jessica October 4, 2014

        We were too busy GOING to the Tour hence why its 100% sold out. Unlike Artrave.

      • 1000 forms of Cake like Lady GaGa (Cheek to Cheek is #1) October 4, 2014

        But all ArtRave shows are sold out tho. So were the BTWB shows, and The Monster Ball shows too. I see why you mad

      • Jessica October 4, 2014

        Mad? Not when Mrs Carter Show has outgrossed them all with less dates. Death.

    • let’s be real October 4, 2014

      886k vs 130k sis them p*** poor floppy cheeks album

  59. Kina October 4, 2014

    The first 2 clips were so sad to watch. Damn

  60. Jessica October 4, 2014

    Sad times!

  61. JOHNVIDAL October 4, 2014

    And another whole essay from Sam shading or even worse attacking Mariah Carey. Look everything has a limit, and your constant hate is getting out of hand. These are people (not to mention she´s going through a rough time). Of course nothing about the show being sold out and never a post with good news regarding Mariah Carey. It´s painful. I would stop and rethink what I´m doing if I were you.
    About the extremely brief clips: she didn´t sound good, but her voice changes constantly, when she did 3 big sold out concerts in Australia 2 years ago she sounded very good, and she´ll sound different in every concert in this tour. It is what it is. Oh, and her album is great.

  62. Mark111 October 4, 2014

    I guess the lambs are still converting their 20 year old MC LIVE vocals from VHS to digital.

    • NOLIES October 4, 2014

      You should do the same for R. Kelly’s ex wife

  63. Grump October 4, 2014

    I wish this site would leave Mariah alone and stop being so spiteful. She’s going through a lot right now and no matter how you want to turn it singing love songs when going through a divorce is a very very difficult thing. She sang a Diana ross song last night and switched the lyrics saying “I know you f****** cheated”. This is a very sad time for her. Just let her be.

    • Mark111 October 4, 2014

      Then why is she touring? Keep yo ass at home if you’re going through it.

      • Grump October 4, 2014

        Keep her ass at home and wallow in her sadness. Mariah always tours when she goes through s***. Butterfly tour, Charmbracelet. Keep being hateful, keep feeding into TGJ’s hate. I hope y’all will be satisfied when you kill this woman like all the greats the media has killed all over the years.

      • Revolution October 4, 2014

        Those people killed off themselves, through drugs.

    • NOLIES October 4, 2014

      That’s my point. Don’t hate her, because she’ll end up dead

      • Revolution October 4, 2014

        Shes going through a divorce for effs sake. Average people go through that everyday, without the money for top notch therapy.

      • Grump October 5, 2014

        @Revolution, you dumb b****. Average people don’t have numerous sites like these writing negative articles about HER and the divorce blaming HER when they don’t know what happened. All these sites always say “Nick is divorcing her” but claim he cheated and yet still find a way to blame her. Sad.

  64. Revolution October 4, 2014

    Egocentric. Thats why she cant admit shes done.

  65. smh October 4, 2014

    Lord help this poor woman, Mariah @ “Vision of Love”. smh

  66. Joe October 4, 2014

    This isn’t new… Mariah has gone through rough times vocally and every fan knows that the state of her voice fluctuates: around Butterfly things got ugly; on Rainbow she wasn’t totally recovered; when Charmbracelet came out she was amazing; during The Adventures of Mimi her voice was tired again, a fact that was reflecte on E=MC², even though during a big part of the promo for TEOM she sounded great; on Memoirs she got better and finally on Merry Christmas II she sang to the heavens again. On Chanteuse I noticed a very raspy voice… The chest voice is where the problem is focused; she couldn’t belt last night, and even talking seemed to be hard.
    At this point it looks like she has no control, so some days the voice will be on point – different, ’cause time goes by and change comes for every high performance achiever – in music, dancing, sports, etc. -, or bad.
    I don’t know what’s going on, but I’m sure that she felt terribly embarrassed; maybe surgery is an option and she’s too afraid to go ahead with the procedure… Also, there’s the break up. Almost all of the “Elusive” album had Nick as the main theme (Thirsty, You Don’t Know What To Do, Cry, Faded, Camouflage, Money, The Art Of Letting Go…), so, there’s definitely an emotional background playing a big part on her actual condition, aside from the physical component.
    Psychologically she’s perfectly sane, incredibly smart, but has made choices that aren’t the best (the over use of the Diva persona is included here).
    Finally I hope that people recognize Mariah not only as a genius of music, but mainly as a human being who goes through good and bad phases in life. Yesterday wasn’t a good day, she had worse days, and will get better.

    Oh sweet Jesus. I was expecting mediocre vocals from her, but I wasn’t expecting her to lose her voice outright in between vocals. That’s really bad! Her vocal cords need medical assistance ASAP!

  68. FutureCIARA October 5, 2014

    Oh my lord Jesus, Let us pray!!!!

  69. shaquinisha-rose October 5, 2014

    Again with the negative posts about Mariah. This site is sad. We know she has vocal issue (just like you have severe grammar and spelling issues). Give the girl a break!

  70. Oops I Did It Again October 6, 2014

    chose the worst two and showed only ONE good one?! Blogs focus on negative. Just another reason for the insecure gays to be messy and spiteful
