I enjoyed her show recording so much (47,525) by Critter from USA

I thoroughly did. At first I was a bit annoyed by the chit-chat of 2 female concert goers. Very soon, their chat actually became enjoyable. One went like, "She is doing a wardrobe change." "I love her", "I wish I could be her scarf." "So beautiful". Then she went on saying, "After seeing her sing, who would watch 're Alice's (a Chinese tv show)." One of them of course said of Hero, "What a great song" and the "encore, encore" with the strong accent. All added more to the recording. Thanks for posting.

When CEO's play stupid (47,523) by nikki from usa

First off, I'd like to point out almost 3 weeks ago I posted that Mariah had a cold and would gradually get better as she gets over it. I don't doubt emotional issues would also take a toll along with lack of sleep doesn't help. I claimed this would cause her healing to take awhile and as Mariah's vocals improved the press would simply stop talking about it because there was no way to bash her. So far, everything I said has transpired. What are we at now? Clothes? Next, Bartels doesn't think the fact the label didn't promote the album or any of its singles had anything to do with its performance? Seriously? Or the fact MC's own promotion was only marginally better? How about the fact her last music videos weren't even released? No manager or publicist. No major appearances. No Oprah, Ellen, Jay Leno. No live singing to promote the singles after Beautiful. Just for the sake of principle, I hope MC does a re-release and promotes it like she used to. How much you want to bet if she did that the album and singles sales would do better? Then, Steve will claim last year was just a "bad" time to release it.

Anthony Basco, Vision Of Love GMA (47,522) by Elena from The Netherlands

It's on YouTube, so you can get your copy there. I watched that performance right after I read so many negative things about MC's voice. I shed a tear, because what did she know back then? She gave everything. She doen't have to be exactly that now, but if only the focus en the caretaking of her voice returns, I'll be happy.

What is there to complain about? (47,521) by Saint from UK

Forget the negative media, they're irrelevant. As fans we received a phenomenal album, rave reviews. Mariah looks great. Mariah seems to have recovered from what ever cold/allergies she had, her voice soon followed. It looks as though they are filming all the concerts which means a concert DVD release for next year perhaps. Her dancers have made it pretty clear to expect new music plus an era revamp or re-release. She shut the naysayers down as I hoped via the new "whistle video" and China fan tribute video. What is there to complain about? I know it's hard sometimes when haters like That Grape Juice and Wendy Williams do nothing but slam Mimi, but start enjoying her again instead of criticizing and analyzing.

Retire (47,520) by Danny Cedar from uk

Maybe if everyone is so unhappy and critical with Mariahs current voice then she maybe should just retire? That's how all your messages are heading towards. Shouldn't we just be greatful she is touring and recording?

Actually, Randy (47,518) by Marcel from Canada

I recall back in the early 90's she'd hit the high note at every single song and by Can't Let Go she was so critizised that they even took the high note out of the radio/video version. Music Box saw MC using it scarcely and just as an adornment in Daydrem and Butterfly. Then everybody was so fond on the issue that MC's voice was going through a severe damage that by Rainbow she came back hitting high notes here and there, like if a high note meant something. I spent last night watching the full China concert posted in here trying to find the greatness some were pointing out. I couldn't find it. It was a mostly lipped concert. Live: Emotions, part of My All, part of ABMB and guess Hero and VOL in a way. You cannot almost hear her voice not because of amateur recording and the girl moaning oh oh the whole concert because in the rest of it you were able to hear her pre-recorded vocals. I don't get why if she's lipping she takes so long between songs and she's not even talking to the audience. She's been lipping too much since the Butterfly concerts still, but I guess this is the worst because when singing live, in the Buttefly tour she was hoarse and almost out of voice but still somehow in pitch, now, everytime she hits a few words live over the backup record, she sounds out of pitch and tempo. I haven't heard any single performance in this last tour that has any improvement in her voice.

The Elusive Chanteuse Show and the Mariah fandemonium (47,517) by Baby from Sweden

LC and Deedre, so glad you all enjoyed the concert, as did I. Imagine, it was filmed by a fan, how much better wouldn't Mariah sound if it was recorded professionally? But I love how candid it was and how the fangurling was so on point. Encore encore encore. Lambs at their best. It's obvious to me that MC is getting undeservedly bad press on account of a couple bad notes. I now even question the validity of those early 00:16 clips that starred the whole "Mariah can't sing anymore" meme that had the anti-lambs salivating at the possibility of Mariah losing her mojo. Does anyone else find it funny how Mariah is only accused of singing live when it's "bad" and never when it's good? I mean, some hobby-critics go as far as splicing one single performance into: live plus lipped and dubbed vocals to try and justify their often times logical conclusions. God forbid, once in a blue moon, Mariah Carey live would ever be capable of sounding like, oh I don't know, Mariah Carey on a record?

Mariah's hair (47,516) by Lee TS from USA

I hope this doesn't come off as ridiculous, well it is, but I'm not feeling her hair in the recent performances. She looked really beautiful, I think it was Yokohama with the side swept hair in soft waves. But during the China leg, her weave looks a bit raggedy especially the ends. Her glam squad needs to get it together. Mariah needs to bring back the dynamic duo Kristofer and Roque, they always had her looking flawless. Just a silly post.

Grammy Award for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance (47,515) by Billy from Greece

Did anyone know that this particular category in the Grammys has been discontinued?

Critical lambs (47,512) by Max from United Kingdom

I don't know what the fuss is about. if you love Mariah, this is the time you should be garning for her most as it is the memento she needs us most. I think the Elusive was written whilst she was going through a difficult time, It's A Wrap with Mary J says it all. I think she told Mary J about Nick. I love it.

Pissed (47,511) by Randy from USA

I am upset that her team released this video on Facebook of her doing whistle notes. No one doubted that MC could still do whistle notes. In fact, that's the one note I am pretty sure she can hit live, even if the rest of the performance is a backing track and she's lip syncing. Early in her career, MC said she didn't want the whistle register to become a gimmick. Now it's used constantly. A whistle register does not a singer make. If that was the case, then Chante Moore would have 18 #1s. A friend of mine told me in the late 90s when things began to go wrong MC would be nothing without the whistle register. Now what do I say to this friend? I love MC. God knows I do. But when will it stop with the smoke and mirrors? When will she address what's going on with her full voice? For someone nicknamed "The Voice",' I'm not seeing a single performance worthy of that title. Even when most lambs are "moved" by a recent performance, I see it as marginal, capable of being copied by any singer, of course, except the whistle notes.

MC should sing new songs in concerts, not old songs (47,510) by jaker20 from US

New songs as in (1) songs on her current album, (2) songs that she can actually sing. She can't sing songs from the 90s anymore. It's a different time, different vocal abilities. I would rather hear her sing songs she can sing, than lip old "hits". During the concerts, people seem to dig her new songs too. And the reason is because they know it's live. It's like as soon as WTB plays, you know full well the belt is going to be lipped. Besides, why should she sing oldies? I just makes her look old has-been. Look at Madonna. You won't see her sing old popular hits unless it's completely re-done, re-mixed. That's why her concerts are always full-house. I just couldn't stand her butcher her own songs. She can sing her new songs because they're recorded recently to fit her voice. She simply can't sing Vision Of Love anymore and give it justice. You'll just get either sub-part, lipped, semi-lipped, or heavily-backtracked.

Orkum / tour (47,506) by RJJ12 from USA

Orkum, great post. I also believe that she went back on tour to re-build her voice. Going on tour forces her to sing at least some of it and start creating some type of structure and normalcy to take care of herself and get some rest and create a routine. Here is hoping that as the tour continues, her voice improves.

Meteroite / Don't explain (47,504) by Abraham from USA

I've really been feeling this song lately. I blasted it on my stereo at least 3 times. Along with some Earth, Wind and Fire. I think it's the "You got the light to light up the night" part that gets me. I'm gonna need Mariah to sing it live at one of her shows. I'm also feeling the "Don't explain" cover. I love it.

Songs that Mariah must include in the tour asap (47,502) by Panos from Greece

As the tour unveils and I see day by day that Mariah's voice reaches Charmbracelet standards, I just can't get past the fact that she doesn't sing [...]. I'm really curious why. [...] remix would be also be a great opener. These songs should be the core of the concert. She could make a medley of 15-20 more minutes and it would be perfect. She sings [...] now, so why can't she change the show a little bit? I would go to the concert even if she could only sing [...]. This song made me fan, it made me love her and appreciate her. Without it I feel the concert is lacking Mariah's vocal showcase and soul. Now it's the perfect time to change the usual playlist and surprise us with something elusive. Can someone sent her a letter or write a request in instagram please? I know you want it too . Am I wrong? The only song I don't expect her to sing again is [...] (Nick's favorite) and [...], because she hates them so much. I love them but who cares. She has a ton of other wonderful songs to perform. [...] is also my second most expected song to hear. It's a modern disco classic. When she released it, I couldn't believe that my wish for a disco song with a ballad intro, came true. This song would receive praise and shoot the album back in charts in Asia and Japan. They responded so well when it was released in May, even though it wasn't promoted. I wonder where is the video she was shooting? Where is that beautiful unreleased remix? Now that would be a surpsrise. She could sing it after [...]. Where are the new written songs? I don't wanna be negative but changes are needed. I am not an expert but I'm sure that some of these things could really work. The songs she lets out are the most popular among Asian fans and of course for the rest of her fanbase, even the general public. It's a shame to be so talented and not show it. To be honest the current playlist is a let down for me. But she is Mariah Carey. She can change the game and at the end of the day it's her show. Let's wait and see what she'll do in the next concerts. She can slay us right now that the voice is back. I believe it with all my heart. Come one Mariah do justice to the title of your show. Refresh your playlists. You can make it happen. Then Europe, South America and US would kill to see her again.

Better (47,501) by Orkun from The Netherlands

The Emotions video posted on here sounds much much better. Mainly live and stronger voice, better pitch. The whistles are lipped. The rest is live. I dont like the "hey, hey"s she does so often much but that's me. Now I understand that she has not been on vocal rest but that she just hasn't sung for a long time. Now she is training her voice again. So she should keep singing. From what I hear, seems like she got like 5 notes back which she struggled with before and seems more confident. Now we are finally getting somewhere, step by step, back to the top, where she obviously belongs. Less gimmicks, more natural talent.

Baby from Sweden (47,500) by LC from USA

Thank you so much for posting that. I just finished watching and it was beautiful. Even if this wasn't her best, it just shows that what the media made viral was uncalled for and unfair. This nearly two hours in China was a great concert. It was just amazing to see and hear the fans and their love for Mariah, especially the woman taking the video. She was screaming everytime Mariah made a high note or came back on stage and it was just incredible to feel that love. It's beautfiul to see how, at the end of the day, no matter what the press says or no matter what we fans argue about, Mariah is a legend who has touched the lives of millions in a way that no one else has. It must be incredible for her to know that people who don't even speak her language all over the world know her songs and her lyrics and her artistry. This is why we should love Mariah Carey. She is music.

You won't believe it, it's not only Kyla but almost all female singers (and some males) in the Philippines are Mariah-influenced. Lol, watch these two girls.
10:15 - favorite international singer Mariah
10:35 - she follows MC in tweeter but too shy to tweet her
10:40 - particular song that they are 'scared' to sing
15:12 - two girls saying that Mariah's "Emotions" is the most difficult song for them because of the high belting and whistles
15:44 - Jonalyn sings Emotions (chorus) no whistle though
19:58 - Jonalyn sings Through the rain
27:46 - Katrina sings never too far while jumping rope
28:44 - Jonalyn singing never too far while on a hoola hoop
katrina can exactly copy Beyonce's runs but she can hardly copy Mariah's. Lol. Mariah's voice totally unique and cannot be duplicated.

Especially the blue one. She looked like a goddess. Aside from that, I have to say that her live singing seems to be improving. The "Without you" performance was very good. Hope she keeps it up.

Funny how (47,494) by this_is_qhm from the Philippines

Funny how the media chooses to feed on negativity that it preoccupies them too much to also report the good. Funny how a lot of the critics are most probably not singers themselves which makes them incapable of realizing and relating to how it feels to have an "off" day as a singer. Funny how a lot of people are quick to compare Mariah's vocal state to how "better" those of Celine's, Barbra's, Aretha's currently are, as if personal differences was a myth and there was a "one-size-fits-all" approach to taking care for and using one's voice. Funny how a lot of fans are too quick to write Mariah off just because of a flop album and inconsistent recent performances when they know damn well they're the reason an interlude called Languishing was written. Funny how staying positive or even neutral in this board has lately become synonymous with "delusional", and how conversely, being critically constructive is derided as being hateful. Funny how even with all this crap I've just mentioned, we all still come around here once in a while to celebrate this remarkable woman, even if it means having to tolerate each other. Love, love, love.

I love how Mariah is (47,492) by Mandy Monroe from United States

Remember Mariah missed out a lot on her late teens and all through out her 20s - her prime. Working since high school and getting married right away. Mariah never really got that "freedom" being a 21 year old, meeting people, finding real love, partying and having the typical life. She was working day and night. "Pretty much having no life" in her own words. She really didn't get to fully enjoy her prime as she was greatly oppressed and abused. The free-spirited, adventurous, sexy, bubbly, "do what I ever I want" Mariah was stifled, imprisoned and controlled by the Partriarch, Tommy Mottola. Deep inside she's still that little girl, Nothing changed. Scarred and insecure, forever longing for the life she missed out on. This is why Mariah's spirit will forever be truly young. So don't get confused when she says she's eternally 12, because she really is. She's still that teenager when she first came out writing about her first kiss and her first love, first heartbreak, which she still does until today. I love it. I love how the inner child truly stayed with her because wouldn't have songs like ABMYB, Underneath the Stars, Dedication, Slipping Away, Candy Bling, Last Kiss, Love Takes Time, countless. Everything really does for a reason, she's just really meant to bring back the nostalgia darling. Forever young and beautitul Mariah Carey.

He's so talented. Ktktktkt. That was stellar. I love her so much. She should really sing with MC. I noticed she has no accent. I watched her Forever and Butterfly tribute and she honestly does it so good. It's stupid. And she did the ridiculously hard run (fly) at the climax of Butterfly where Mariah's back up singers take over and finish the run, but this girl did it all by herself. It's so ridiculous, I thought no one else in this world would be able to sing that part but this girl just poops at that part lmao. So amazing. If she was on American Idol Season 12, I think Mariah would cry every night.

Mariah's voice (47,483) by Dan from US

She might of had a cold, she could of been crying all the time because of all the personal things in her life. Imagine crying and being upset and then knowing you have to go out and perform.

Tianjin performances (47,482) by LC from USA

Seeing videos from this concert I was speechless. I really think that Mariah saw the criticism and learned from it. Or she really was just sick on the first few dates because her voice is in good condition again. That "Emotions" performance had incredible fifth octave mid belts and easily rivals or trumps her performances of that song in Australia last year. Also, her runs were incredible in that performance. She did some runs that she's never done before. She was confident and went for almost all of the higher belts that she dodged (almost embarrassingly) in the past dates. Then, her whisper voice, which was basically gone in the first few dates is fully back, as can be heard in her performances of ABMB and My All. Also, that buttery and beautiful tone and fluidity she has is already back, which you can see in Hero and WBT. Basically, those of you who said her voice was completely gone, think again, because Mariah is back.

I can't believe the dresses Mariah is wearing on this tour. They are hideous. Mariah is worth half a billion dollars and is friends with several high profile designers.

Incredibly amazing lamb (47,478) by Mandy Monroe from United States

Hey you guys. I know it's very hard to see anyone do justice to an MC song. But I've discovered this girl, she is a die-hard lamb, so please come check her out. She reminds me of Mariah a lot. MC never did this song live so this is the closest we can get. She emulates Mariah's vocals but she does it so flawlessly and with her own signature voice/tone. It's just amazing to see how talented lambs can be and how much MC actually influence other vocal talents. Mariah would smile if she sees her sing. I really don't want to do any type of advertisement but I really need to share how amazing this girl is. Please tell me what you think of this lamb, she is one of us.

[...] (47,476) by Mandy Monroe from United States

Whatever harsh things people have to say, it really would not trump over Mariah. "Do good to those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you, Psalms 129:2. They have greatly oppressed me from my youth, But they have not gained victory over me." Nothing will bring her down, for she has the Lord God almighty. I am just sharing these moving lyrics from "I Wish You Well". I listen to it when I'm dealing with difficult people. You know Mariah has leveled up from every album. Not even joking. E=MC2 has so much gems totally gone foiled and wasted. "Migrate", "Cruise Control", "Loving You Long Time", "I Stay In Love", "Last Kiss", "Love Story", "For The Record", "Cruise Control". I'm literally perturbed when people say she's not upping her game when the truth is she's getting better than ever. Countless gems on MIAM. Disregard the sales, Mariah smashed on every single album. She's so amazing. I am praying for her. We love you MC.

Tour / random thoughts (47,473) by L.H from Lebanon

We barely see news about Mariah's tour. Apart from the first gig which was relatively bad. I got no feedback on her other perfomances (vocally, not "clothingly" lol ). You can see that her performances are getting better, but sadly this isn't reported. She sang My All in Spanish, for a change, no comments from the press. Even on YouTube, videos are scarce. Surprisingly I haven't seen any video reporting her singing her new "elusive" songs. I read the comments about her voice. Yes, it has changed, she seems to have more difficulty to sing like before, but still she's singing better than anyone now on the scene. I wonder if her vocal cords got injured when she [censored] and if she had surgery for her shoulder, they could have been further damage done? Finally, I love her interaction with her backup singers, they re doing a great job.

Perhaps it's time for Mariah to leave Def Jam (47,472) by James from USA

She's only had one really successful album with the label unfortunately, and I don't think they're doing her any favors as far as promoting her as an artist. I think she needs an extended break, and think she should release music by doing features and maybe movie soundtrack type stuff. Would be cool to see Mariah feature in a movie and do a couple of songs for a movie. She just needs to retool herself as an artist and dial things back a little bit, I think. Do a little bit more by doing a little bit less sort of thing.

Steve Bartels comments on Elusive Chanteuse (47,471) by ADAM from USA

I was thinking about Def Jam CEO Steve's comments about Mariah's poor performance for her latest CD and I think it's a copeout. I believe Mariah created great music that would have resonated with the public had the label given MC a budget to actually make videos and a real campaign to launch Thristy, Meteorite, and YDKWTD as singles. With the amount of exposure JLo got, I believe Mariah would have secured her next #1 song. The sick beats and great upbeat choruses are fire and easy to hear on radio, streaming music, or clubs. Any one of those songs would have been a hit. Yes Mariah lost her range and texture but she knows how to craft a hit in today's market and it's such a shame she will not be able to have another credit to her name especially with such great material. I consider this CD even better than anything on Memoirs or E=MC2. Maybe the re-release will create a hit for this era like Don't Forget About Us did. Any thoughts?

Contrary to previous reports (and video footage of her slaughtering various well known classics), Mariah Carey can still sing. Here she is, pottering about some room, with a vase, in Shanghai, hitting notes only your Jack Russel can fully appreciate.
