First Look: Mariah Carey Takes Over ‘Lip Sync Battle’

Published: Thursday 24th Jan 2019 by Rashad

In an effort to help ‘Glee’ star Darren Criss take his performance to the next level, Pop icon Mariah Carey literally dropped in for a surprise appearance on the forthcoming episode of ‘Lip Sync Battle,’ sending her fans – affectionately called #Lambs – into a frenzy along the way.

Criss – who lip synced to the diva’s 1999 chart-topping single ‘Heartbreaker‘ – also remade the tune’s Brett Ratner-directed music video live.  Just as the audience cheered on his reenactment of the visual’s choreography, Carey descended from the ceiling via a swing decorated in the shape of a butterfly (a symbol she’s been associated with since her 1997 album, ‘Butterfly’).

Tapping longtime producer Jermaine Dupri to assist in the shenanigans, look inside to see your first look:

      Mariah Carey is a LEGEND. Have some respect on her name TRANNY. Moving along past your GROSS IMPERFECTIONS. Mariah carey needs to stop playing and release A NO NO and 8th Grade. Caution is her best album since Butterfly and She needs to be promoting this piece of work.

        @China bïtch stfu I love Mariah and I met her for the caution release. Did you? Nope. Still doesn’t mean she’s not seasoned for a lip synch battle. Hush

      • Jasmine Da Bi Asian ??‍♀️??‍♀️ Not TROLLmine nor TRASHmine January 24, 2019

        And I like Glitter, MIATEC, Emancipation, Charmbracelet and Rainbow better than Caution. It’s a great album but it’s just a trendy 2018 album without any big vocal moments. It will be lost in Mariah’s catalogue when we look back at her music in 20 years. It goes with her other trendy albums like “memoirs”, it’s good music but not very memorable

        @China look Shaniqua ??‍♀️ I’m sorry that you’re so jealous of me and my Hollywood connections but I can’t help it that I’m popular ??‍♀️??‍♀️??‍♀️. Maybe you’ll get to meet Mariah one day, too. I know in the summer she does camp Mariah where she brings less fortunate ppl from the ghetto to camp. As far, bald headed, black girl from the projects you’re the PERFECT CANDIDATE! You def should apply bïtch??‍♀️??‍♀️??‍♀️??‍♀️??‍♀️

      Dumb ass ignorant animal, if u knew anything about Mariahs vocal condition you would know that she has nodules. Even tho it’s possibly the worst thing for singers, Mariah has learned to sing through them. Still to this day vocal coaches can’t understand it really, but the nodules is also the reason why sometimes her voice is there and sometimes not.
      Mariah may lipsynch sometimes but acting like she is the greatest vocalist OF ALL TIME is a reach.

    sidenote: Darren Criss — is the gayest “STRAIGHT” guy ever. Another problem with the industry let him be Gay and at Peace. Who purchased his “wife” for him to hide his secrets. Hollyweird always on some straight bull_shit.

      • Monica’s Dove January 24, 2019

        Babyyyyy, Monica is a LEGEND. She has had a #1 every decade since her debut 24 years ago. Monica enjoys her family life, and sings whenever she feels like it. At least she still has her SANITY and VOCALS. Can Mariah say the same b****???????

  6. Jackx January 24, 2019
