New annual Christmas shows in New York / sponsored by Coca Cola (47,724) by Saint from UK

Damn I wish I was a New Yorker right now. The first annual set of Christmas shows in December are going to be amazing. Remember the Merry Christmas II You TV special? I think it's amazing that Mariah will be allowing fans to see her during her favorite time of year. Every year during a time when AIWFCIY goes to #1 every year and she's in the forefront of everyone's minds the entire season. Plus the shows will get things buzzing for a North American leg of the tour before she goes to Jamaica in January and rumored to be here in the UK Spring 2015. So much to look forward to, we should be celebrating. Also, happy Halloween to all the lambily.

The Urban Daily (47,723) by Saint from UK

Don't you hate it when a bored ass blogger makes a post titled "Why I may be the only person still rooting for Mariah", then makes an unintentionally transparent article claiming to be "rooting" for her, but then tears her to shreds for the sake of clicks. Yeah mate, you're the only person rooting for her when she's sold over 200 million albums to date and just ended 11 sold-out and packed out arena shows. Keep it moving trolls, there are more on this messageboard than I had originally thought. Good thing Mariah has better things to do than worry about that.

All Walter wants for Christmas (47,722) by Andrew from UK

At the risk if taking over the board again - I have no intention, let's not hate on Afanasieff. Or even Tommy. We will never know what went on. The woman is a beacon, as proved by the Minaj absurdity, and has a class for not reacting, a class we would all be better people for adopting. I don't recall MC praising Walter for his contributions. Although in her defence, the Proctor's Special: "I sing it and he plays it" (to paraphrase). It does genuinely now feel like Mariah was right about a so-called Mafia type existence (did he say something like "she moved away from *us*"? I don't care to re-read it). Mariah doesn't let people cover? Respect. But she doesn't praise him either. Don't you feel like they considered Mariah a silly little girl who left the protection of the "family" losing them their cut? Maybe. AIWFCIY is perhaps going to go down as the most genius construction of music in history long after we have all come to pass. Wish people "Mariah Christmas". And wish Walter well.

My all / car ride medley (47,721) by Abraham from USA

The "My all" performance was live. And she sounded great. That crack was nothing. It happens, but she made up for it with those amazing runs at the end. The car ride medley was also great. Mariah should definitely sing "Don't forget about us" more. Those whistles at the end are awesome. Try that Ariana Grande.

The future (47,720) by Andrew from UK

Mate, you are right: the attempts to cover up the lipping with the usual gimmicks is, ironically, definitely the biggest give away. The instant shift in behaviour and facial expressions, even though Mariah of course knows she hadn't sung that way since day one, suggests she may be embarrassed or nervous about doing it. Regardless, the parts I'm hearing her lip she's actually doing elsewhere. Is it a breathing thing? Does she need pauses for the muscles? I don't get it. She should drop the FLAB-style endings. Do we need massive powerhouse anymore? It's not even in fashion. Let's stick to the harmonies, that soul-depth tone, the party beats and the sentimentality. I accept now that MC concerts are very much nostalgia after 24 years. Run with it and do that well, no? It should be all about the party not the ridiculous notes. People don't miss nineties/noughties Mariah or nineties/noughties vocals, they miss the nineties and noughties. And she can bring it back for a party.

Billboard article and Mariah's reconciliation with Walter (47,719) by ADAM from USA

I loved the insight into the creation of the album and Walter's comments about Mariah's input and Tommy Mottola's wisdom way back then. We can all agree that Mariah was unhappy with Tommy's control over her, however I think we can all agree in hindsight, that this man was very smart to convince Mariah to record holiday music and choose the songs she did which made her a household name and legend. I think if Tommy wasn't involved and she had total control, the album would have never existed and if it did, we would not have AIWFCIY sounding as retro as it did which is the key to its success. I wish Mariah would get passed her grudges from 1998 and reconcile with Walter. He's said many times that she's wonderful and a great producer, composer, and vocalist. They make magic together and are my favorite producing couple of her entire catalog. I place them even higher than JD and MC. If it were up to me I'd trade "We Belong Together" for any other gem that wasn't released during the Music Box or Daydream era. I also hope that now that MC's has her own family, that she at least sends Tommy some flowers every Christmas for insisting she record holiday music because really although she has millions of records and 18 #1's, her best long-lasting legacy in music will be her contribution to Christmas. Everyone loves Mariah every December no matter if they think she's relevant or not and I think that speaks volumes more than any statistic.

Beacon Theatre (47,718) by Michele from USA

There is no word yet on the Beacon Theatre website of Mariah performing in December, so for now, I am treating it just as a rumor. But if it is true, Adam, I will go with you.

MC's NYC Christmas show at Beacon, who wants to go with me? (47,717) by ADAM from USA

I'm so excited Mariah's announced she's doing 4 shows at the Beacon Theater for December 15, 16, 18 and 20th. I'm flexible to go to any of these dates so it would be nice to go with another super fan from this message board. Unfortunately none of my friends are as big of fan of hers to want to go with me, so if anyone's planning on already going for any of these dates in NYC, can you email me at NY1COCO@gmail.com and we can coordinate what show your going to and chat beforehand please? Much appreciated.

Walter A. / Ben M. (47,716) by Lee TS from USA

I also felt Walter was a tad bit shady in the interview about AIWFCIY, but as a lamb I think we just want to hear all the praises of MC. MC also diminished Walter's contribution to the song when she told Andy Cohen she was stupid to give 50% of the royalties away. No matter what the story is, MC and Walter truly created magic together and they'll always be my favorite duo. It's sad that they can't move pass the situation and work together again. Walter has done well for himself and is a respected producer, he's still creating music with big artists like Celine and Barbra. I don't think Ben M. has done much of anything after Mariah and it's all thanks to his greed, having Mariah basically sign her life away. Those chapters of her life are closed, she put that wall up and walked the other way. I think what's important to MC is loyalty and that's why she always hit up JD when she needs to hit the studio.

Andrew / addicted to improve (47,714) by Edward from USA

Mariah's still lipsyncing here and there, but as her voice gets stronger, she's doing it less and less. Her voice has definitely improved a lot from the first few shows, to the point where she has included a few more songs in her playlist. My All, as easy as it may seem, is a very difficult song to sing. Let's give Mariah some credit. It's evident she's taken action to better her voice, I never believe the "She just had a cold" theory. Sometimes it is not only a confidence thing, but knowing when you can actually go for a certain note. As for covering her face or turning around when lipping certain parts, I agree with you. She could actually get away with it if she didn't do that. She's been consistent, and I'm personally happy with that.
(Friday 31 October 2014; 18:14)

My all (47,713) by Jenny from South Africa

I don't think any part of My All was lipped. Why would she lip the first chorus and then sing the belting at the end. She wasn't singing every word in the first chorus. She was waiting for the second verse. Maybe that's why you think she was lipping Andrew.
(Friday 31 October 2014; 17:59)

Addicted to lip (47,712) by Andrew from UK

I think Mariah is unable to let go of lip-syncing parts of songs completely. In that My All video down there, she does pretty well. I dare say it even sounds "good". But the first chorus is lipped, even though she was singing those notes in that voice throughout the concert. I think she is so lacking in confidence that miming is her "blanky". Why is she still lipping the long note at the end of the bridge in Hero? In other performances she's doing an equivalent note. This has to be confidence issue. But then the spinning around so the audience can't see it, putting arm in front of face must be equally as nerve-wracking/embarrassing, whatever the word is. If the Sisterhood of the Travelling Panties disagree that the above parts were lipped I congratulate them on their reverie. My point is that, by the sounds of other songs, what she's miming doesn't even need to be mimed.

Christmas shows (47,711) by Lee from UK

That poster for the Christmas shows says "first annual". Does that mean this is going to be a yearly thing that Mariah is doing from now on? I sure hope so. I would plan my holidays around this and go and see it every year.

Why Mariah will never work with Walter again (47,710) by Baby from Sweden

He won't give Mariah her props (a.k.a. R.E.S.P.E.C.T.) for being the principle songwriter on their collaborations. Notice how he dodges even mentioning the melodies and lyrics Mariah wrote herself on songs like AIWFCIY in every interview he gives to this day. He makes it all about his own contributions and will even go as far as to belittle the greatness of the songs just so Mariah's talents can remain unheralded. Wally still makes it so obvious with his shadey comments that he was part of Tommy's clique that kept Mariah in a gilded cage for all those years. Anyone who thinks Walter winning his only 2 Grammys right after his and Mariah's professional and personal association ended, is a coincidence, is a fool. It's been established many times that Mariah is no one's fool twice. I'd much rather Mariah write with Ben Margulies again. In fact, that is officially my Christmas wish for Mariah this year. Just listen to him continue to evade giving Mariah any songwriting credit, like he's still getting payola from Tommy, in this video from last year.

Edward (47,708) by MCvoice from Singapore

Hi Edward, will you kindly send me the mp3 of Lullaby of Birdland? Thank you so much. My email is bestvoiceMC@gmail.com. I have been checking out this site for years and this is my 2nd post. The thing I like here is the bond we share in loving Mimi. Whether her voice is gone/returned or whatever, as long as she has new music/tour, I will do my part as a fan in celebrating with her. It is not easy for a singer to be "relevant" in this age. Mimi has done very well compare to alot of her peers, or those who come after her. I just deeply appreciate her (and other veteran singers) effort in pushing on despite the hurdles physically, commercially or vocally.

Press release from 2015 Jamaican Jazz Festival (47,707) by travon austin from usa

Global superstar Mariah Carey has been confirmed as the headline act for the 19th annual Jamaica Jazz & Blues Festival next January. Carey, regarded as the best-selling female artiste of all time, will be making her first-ever appearance in the Caribbean, and her signing is being seen as a major triumph for the world-renowned festival, scheduled for January 29 - 31 at the Trelawny Multi-purpose Stadium on Jamaica's north coast. "Welcoming Mariah Carey to Jamaica's shores is truly exciting and we are extremely pleased to announce this iconic star as our headline act for 2015, " festival producer Walter Elmore said yesterday. "Her agreeing to perform on our stage is a testament to the quality of our production. We are the only festival in the Western Hemisphere to present Mariah Carey since her last tour 2006.

Abraham / black panties (47,702) by Edward from USA

Abraham, my post was intended for those who keep telling people what to post or not to, and you are one of them, so I didn't have to be specific. I want you to know that I respect the fact that you love wearing your panties, but assuming that the rest of us male fans like wearing them too is a little bit too much. I'm a fan of Mariah's. I'm not interested in imitating her or wearing any of her products. I don't have any problem with those who like that, but don't assume that just because you do, others do too. Another thing, why are you dragging Stacey into a post directed at me? I know it may sound cheesy, but my parents taught me to always treat women with respect. Oh, and my sister just informed me that wearing panties doesn't come with a bitch-pass.

I appreciate that everyone is able to express themselves here (47,700) by Deedre aka MiTodoChop @HBF from Canada

Which often means fans/posters aren't going to share the same perspective. That's to be expected. If we all shared the exact same thoughts, what would there be to talk about? I mean this in the most sincere, light-hearted, humorous way possible. March will will be my 37th birthday, and in the last few years I've really come to the place of acceptance of what is. For me, I don't come here and post because I want people to agree with me or because I want to convince people of my views on MC and her music. I don't have any control over anything but my own thoughts and responses. We don't have to have the same opinions on Mariah, to be respectful and kind to each other - especially when discussing her. It doesn't have to be so serious. Know what I mean. Vern? Lol.

No need to get dirty. Edward says what he feels in a very open and polite way as always. And so does Stacey. Sentences like "your girlfriend Stacey" are not nice.

Through the rain (47,689) by Tiina from Finland

I'm so happy that Mariah is doing better and I wish everyone could see that. It's not about being perfect (which she can be in the studio) but she has improved a lot since the tour started, I mean a lot, so you got to give it to her (it's so true when they say that Mariah should never be counted out). Could be that she's been lifted emotionally by the special love that Asia has for her. Exactly what she needs now. I think she went on tour to connect with her fans to get the support she needs. She needs love to carry her through the sadness and disappointment of what's going on in her personal life. Too bad the tour started on a sour note but what matters is that she got through it and is shining again, she's trying. You know, I may criticize Mariah or talk about the state of her voice here (because I care, that's why I analyze) but I'm a huge fan and will never stop believing in Mariah, that's for sure. I guess I don't say it enough.

Self righteous moderators / really? (47,684) by Edward from USA

Self Righteous Moderators, can you please let Eric, The Webmaster, moderate. Last time I checked and for 16 years he's been the sole owner of MCArchives. For those who want to moderate, try putting together your own website, these days is not that difficult, you can have your very own Utopian la-la Land, so you could ban those fans that disagree with you're "my-way or no way" point of view. Stop telling people what to post or not to, it is getting tired. Let people express themselves for heaven sake. If someone is not impressed with any of Mariah's performances and states it, does that make him/her a hater? Do we have to go on a witch hunt for a one line statement now? And whatever happen with men being a little bit more polite towards women? Or is bitchiness the new go to go now? So, next time you feel like you're having an ass-attack, you might consider having a seat or maybe two, it might mitigate the damages.

This is the best I've heard MC sing Hero in years. Like before the Emancipation era. It gave me goosebumps. I haven't liked the way she's sung the first line and the "no one reaches out a hand" line since her Adventures Of Mimi tour. This was the first performance since then where she's sung those lines like she originally used to and it sounded beautiful. I'm so happy for her. The entire song was beautiful. And she looks like she's feeling so comfortable and confident and serene like she knows she's sounding amazing again. I love miss Carey so much. I'm so proud of her.

Mariah Carey's current Australasian tour, "The Elusive Chanteuse Show", kicked off on a dour note, with pundits and concertgoers alike panning the pop-R&B star for flubbing lyrics, going off-key and bungling high notes during her Japan and Korea.
