It’s been a week of mixed feelings for Mariah Carey.
On the one hand, her Las Vegas residency ‘Mariah #1 To Infinity’ has performed so well that’s it’s been extended to 2016. Yet, on the other, the show’s accompanying greatest hits album is only projected to shift 16,000 copies in the US first week.
Undeterred, Mimi charged on with the promotional push for both by hitting the stage on ‘Kelly & Michael’ to perform a medley of her first chart-topper ‘Vision of Love’ and new track ‘Infinity.’
Watch one of music’s most iconic voices soar after the jump…
Solid vocals (thankfully), but meh at this medley.
Given that ‘Infinity’ hasn’t necessarily rocked the charts, we’d have much preferred to see Mariah either a) go all out on the promo for that particular track or b) focus on the #1’s concept more broadly and perform different songs on different shows.
It’s somewhat grating, as she’s currently in the best vocal condition she’s been in for a long time.
Still, in light of the show’s extension, we imagine there’ll be more platforms to continue the promo in the weeks and months ahead. Hopefully, she’ll serve up more variety.
