Report: Mariah Carey To Begin Las Vegas Residency In 2015



After Jennifer Lopez is said to have declined the offer, ‘Emotions‘ singer Mariah Carey is said to be close to be finalising a deal that’ll see her launch a Las Vegas residency this year.

Wants details on Mimi’s major new move?

You know what to do…

Following in the footsteps of Celine Dion and Britney Spears, Carey is now said to be readying a live show based in Vegas that may be ready before the 2015 holidays.

If reports published today prove to be true, she’ll earn more than the $30 million Spears is said to picked up to perform at ‘Planet Hollywood‘, and would start the show following the launch of poorly received ‘The Elusive Chanteuse Show‘, launched to support her latest studio album ‘Me. I Am Mariah…The Elusive Chanteuse.

    • RIP January 7, 2015

      Not here for the lip synching shows… 🙁

      • JOHNVIDAL January 7, 2015


        K BYE!

      • JOHNVIDAL January 7, 2015

        Everybody lips in Vegas. I´m sure, from what we´ve seen in her last tour, that she´ll sing live a bigger portion of her show than Celine Dion (no shade, she´s amazing), Britney Spears or Cher. So just stfu you ignorant fool.

  2. Arianator Barb January 6, 2015

    Yay I love Mariah, I’ll definitely go see her

  3. ORA January 6, 2015


    • AJ January 6, 2015

      lol….Its better to be a “Has Been” than a “Never Was”…like Rita Ora

      • ORA January 6, 2015

        B**** you So jealous

    • K** KarTRASHian January 6, 2015

      Rita never had a voice and is a NEVER WAS.

  4. Quinn January 6, 2015

    If it’s anything like the show at Pearl Theater, it’ll be good.

  5. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) January 6, 2015

    Diva supreme

  6. Stephy January 6, 2015

    Great News! Get that money Big Titty Mariah. Make sure those outfits slay & Pre-Recording tracks SLAY even harder. I’ma try to go see ha. OMG! I gotta save my coins for Mimi & Madonna!!
    My Mother Mariah & Grandmother Madonna gonna slay me this year! Cannot wait.

    • ORA January 6, 2015

      It’s gonna FLOP like everything else she did after 2005

      • TheElusiveLamb January 6, 2015

        Why do you even care to comment after 2005??

      • Stephy January 6, 2015

        LMAO!!! Rita ORAL S** ENTIRE career is a FLOP ho! NEXT!

      • BeyRihLiyah January 6, 2015

        but rita whora is a flop how many u.s. flop singles did she release ? she had to cling to uggly flopzalea to be relevant

  7. TheElusiveLamb January 6, 2015

    I hope they go all the way out for the production! I hate that MC never established herself as a touring force. When she did the Adventures of Mimi tour, I felt she was going in the right direction. She was still young enough to make up for the lack of touring done in her 20’s, but once E=MC2 came and she canceled the tour after the miscarriage, even though I understand why, I felt that door was closed. I can’t wait go! #MimiForever

  8. Gee January 6, 2015

    If said rumors are true this is a major deal for the elusive chanteuse to celebrate her 25 years in the game. Many things have been said about Mariah lately mainly negative but I believe this will be her rebirth to show the world at large she has earned her legendary and or iconic status and it should be respected.

  9. S****** Blonde January 6, 2015

    She should put a big show like Celine, her shows were awesome.

    • JOHNVIDAL January 7, 2015

      Celine Dion´s show in Vegas (I´m talking about her exceptional first stint, from 2003 to 2007) was unbelievably successful and changed the way people see these residencies. Many big acts were not afraid of going after she did it THAT big.

  10. Kemar (@S_C_Jr on Twitter) January 6, 2015

    Go Mariah! This would be great for her. I wish we could’ve gotten a U.S. tour though. I’m excited for her, especially after such a difficult year. Every time she falls, she gets right up!

  11. BeyRihLiyah January 6, 2015

    this is great news this is perfect for her

  12. LB January 6, 2015

    Vegas residency eliminates EXPENSIVE TRANSPORTATION and LODGING costs, so artists stand to make more from a residency than a world tour.

    Get money Mimi, congrats.

  13. Shameem January 6, 2015

    Who wants to pay to hear a p** oink for 90 minutes?

    • BeyRihLiyah January 6, 2015

      the only p** is your herpess infested prostitute of a mother and besides your broke ass probably cant even afford to see MiMi in concert

    • SMH January 6, 2015

      Lmao, sorry but @Shameem that shiit was funny lol.

  14. Musika January 6, 2015

    Hope she starts working on her next album while she’s doing this and I’m sure she’ll slay again!

  15. RihHive January 6, 2015

    Celine Dion, Britney, Mariah…

    Vegas is where former chart toppers go when they realize this industry is not checking for them no more. Not throwing shade, its just the truth. Their contribution to music is noted bt they need to make way for new talent… R.I.P. Mariah… lets hope ur performances are more “lively” than Britney’s

    • JOHNVIDAL January 7, 2015

      Celine Dion went right after selling 600,000 copies first week of her previous album just in the USA and becoming the second biggest album of the year worldwide that year (Shakira ended at #1, yes Shakira, think twice before shading people who are or have done it bigger than your faves). So… well, yes and NO! These artist are too big to die. Their previous music keeps selling without even trying for crying out liud!. Britney´s case is different though. She has literally nothing going on for her. Still so young but with zero to offer since her only talent WAS performing, musically she´s nothing.

  16. Rosie January 6, 2015

    This will be perfect for her, especially considering how successful Celine’s residency was.

  17. I STAN(D) FOR TALENT January 6, 2015

    Good for her. With her personal life in turmoil and her being the biggest flop of 2014, hopefully she can redeem herself.

    • BeyRihLiyah January 6, 2015

      who cares if her last album flopped she has been in the game for over 20 years she is the queen of the sound scan era she has set/broken so many records and she had a successful international tour with that “flop Album” last year …. your a fan of tinashe a jhene’ they will never have a career like Mariah hell those flop h*** wont even have a career like ashanti lmaooooo

      • I STAN(D) FOR TALENT January 6, 2015

        Lol. Tinashe and Jhene? Awww… You follow my comments. I’m flattered. Chill sis, I like her music, but her attitude sucks. Honestly, I didn’t feel sorry her and her personal troubles. She’s a straight-up bittch.

      • TheElusiveLamb January 6, 2015

        That’s a cute comment. I’m so happy that you know Mariah Carey. Tell her I said hi.

    • JOHNVIDAL January 7, 2015

      She´s not the bigest flop of 2014 hun. There are tons of bigger flops this year who actually promoted their albums like there was no tomorrow, and still flopped harder than her. Plus her Asian tour did very well.

  18. @RealMattPhoenix January 6, 2015

    Shame, she needs a bit of a good thing in her life right now. I think she’ll like the Vegas thing

  19. Theman January 6, 2015

    Mariah just came off of a great mini concert series at at the Beacon, where she sounded amazing. She doesn’t have to do this. Her money is stacked.. She makes millions doing absolutely nothing.. RihHive, focus on getting Bey some hits..

    • Tyler January 6, 2015

      And Rihanna hasn’t done anything but consistently get her ass whooped by light skinned muthafuckas…focus on that

    • JOHNVIDAL January 7, 2015

      She was even better during the last part of her tour in October and November imo. From Singapore and on, especially in Australia.

  20. SMH January 6, 2015

    If this is true, then she’s officially a HasBeen. You folks can fool yourselves all you want, bottom line is that Las Vegas is HasBeen City. Always was, always will be. So what if they get paid millions to do a residency there, that stigma is forever attached to Las Vegas. Love Mariah, but a spade is a spade. And calling me a ¨hater¨ or whatever other juvenile name y’all can come up with won’t change anything.

    • Stephy January 6, 2015

      What’s wrong with being a “has been”.. You cannot be on top FOREVER! What else do you want from this woman?

    • JOHNVIDAL January 7, 2015

      Even if she were over (which she isn´t, since an artist that can still make music non stop and has her writing abilities as strong as ever is not over quality wise), her run was incredibly long and she topped charts for way longer than any of her peers (We´ll let Madonna out of this, plus she is not one of her peers anyway). Now eat s***.

  21. Theman January 6, 2015

    When you’re a legend the word has been doesn’t apply to you, especially when you’re one of the most successful artist in music history. Take that SHYT somewhere else !! Has wens don’t get paid millions upon millions. They wouldn’t even be able to book shows at that magnitude. You sound stupid..

  22. Theman January 6, 2015


  23. Dossome January 6, 2015

    So while “The current chart toppers” are slaving for their labels and earning peanuts,their “has-been” counterparts are making eight figures,oh OK.

    i doubt this is true considering how much she loves living in New York but if it is,Make that money

  24. OMG Logic!!! January 6, 2015

    If Celine can stand on stage for an hour and a half lipping to pre-recorded tracks, Queen Mariah can too. She definitely needs to step up her stage production and acting lipping ability though.

    • JOHNVIDAL January 7, 2015

      Yeah Celine acts better 🙂
      Now seriously, Mariah sings live a bigger part of her shows than many other artists out there (some of them shouldn´t even need it not even to rest seeing the type of basic songs they sing).

  25. Bravo!! January 6, 2015

    When are they going to give Mary J Blige a Las Vegas residency?! They needs a black up in Vegas!!

    • TheElusiveLamb January 7, 2015

      When are they even going to give MJB a TGJ post? Seriously, I need to be updated. :/

    • Dossome January 7, 2015

      Toni had a successful run in Vegas couple of years ago til health issues started developing

  26. JOHNVIDAL January 7, 2015

    Her single flopped
    Her album flopped
    Her tour flopped
    Her marriage flopped
    Her fans…flopped.


    • Mark111 January 7, 2015

      Enough about Gaga, we’re talking about the legendary Mariah Carey.

      • JOHNVIDAL January 7, 2015

        That´s obviously not me you stupid hater. I love real talent, like Mariah (and Gaga).

  27. Mark111 January 7, 2015

    She should had done this a few years ago. Before the 99 pushbacks and bad singing. She could had been selling like hotcakes, but now people knows she’s well passed her prime. BUT, if Britney can do the robot and have success, than people will still line up for MC. I wish her the best tho, very few artist can stand next to her success wise. #90sQueen

  28. Cici da baddest January 7, 2015

    Will she be performing at motel 6?

  29. Theman January 7, 2015

    Very few can stand next to her in many areas. Tf are you talking about? She’s sounded the best that she has in quite a while at her XMAS concerts, when she puts in the effort she’s still untouchable.. She has like the best female catalogue & hits forever.. She’s all gravy !!

  30. MISHKA January 7, 2015

    Good news, she needs a retreat/vacation anyway.

    And she can still get paid while healing her broken heart, that’s what’s up!

  31. MariahIsMusic1 January 7, 2015

    This is a good business move, slay

  32. JOHNVIDAL January 7, 2015

    I´ll believe it when I see it.
    Whatever she decides to do will be great since she has done it all. I enjoyed her last concerts in Australia two months ago a lot. These artists earn a lot of money there so go girl! if you want :).
    Wasn´t Mariah going to headline Jamaica´s Festival? Like Celine Dion did a few years ago in one of her breaks from Vegas?

  33. popop January 7, 2015

    Make sure you got a voice and stamina like Aguilera. You may invite her as a mystery guest and duet to prove you got a power.

  34. REALLY January 8, 2015

    if its over… LET IT GOooooooo ( in my 90’S Mariah voice)

  35. justa January 11, 2015

    The writer of this post is in desperate need of basic research skills. “poorly received ‘The Elusive Chanteuse Show” – IS A LIE! Don’t make me post the amount of stellar reviews Mariah received. Get your facts right and someone at TGJ please start vetting articles prior to publish. This is embarrassing. …
