    I have no idea what she sounds like, never heard any of her songs. Or any pop performers. Just don't listen to them. But read on CNN she was lip syncing. Really? I can't ever imagine someone like Jim Morrison doing that. If it isn't real, then why bother.

    Mariah Carey, in her prime, was one of the best vocalists of all time. Up there with Whitney Houston, Celine Deion, Adele, etc.

    Unfortunately, she may have just put the nail in her coffin on this one. Doubt she gets asked to do a big show like this again anytime soon.

    She's done a million of these things, so I'm more inclined there's more to it than, "She messed up". My guess is the technical failure she's complaining about were legit, but when you're alone up there, no one cares.

    I've heard Whitney sing, but the others listed never have. Pop, not my taste of music.

    From what I understand, he routinely screwed up performances by being wasted.

    On a side note, I'm going to see his grave in Paris tomorrow. I'll snap a pic for you.

    I don't get carey she is a total has been. also she is 46 yrs old quit trying to dress like a cheap teenager. I liked some of her songs when she started but after 1993 her music has been awful. just my opinion.

    Wow I am at a loss for words. Mariah Carey wasn't just a pop singer.. she was a real voice talent. Listening to her in both of those videos is not the Mariah Carey I've known over the years. She's without a doubt done.

    Haha totally agree with this one. I've said the same thing about madonna when she performed in the super bowl. I'll pass on seeing 40 and 50 year old women dressing "sexy." Not all women can be maribel guardia.

    At least Jim was real in his performance, unlike a lip synched performance.

    ......and the wife walks in the room.

    Agree with OP, what's the point? I'm sure there are thousands of "starving artists" who would drool for that gig and the chance to give it their all

    Big big fan.
    She was one of the best voices of our time.


    She has turned into this disgusting thing.

    Last night.
    She quit!

    True professional gets through it.

    Telling the dancers to dip me.
    Telling fans - you sing it
    Saying in trying to ve a good sport about this.

    She wouldn't stand with Gloria Estefan.
    Gloria was all class - Mariah, while not trash... she was/is pathetic,

    I would have to hear her in a serious, focused session before I knee jerked and said she was done.

    Towards the end Whitney tried to sing in Central Park.... "tried" ... she was DONE!
    I was mega Whitney fan too... early 80s... "baby, you give good love"

    Our wedding song - duet Whitney and teddy pendergrass - "hold me in your arms"

    I don't think it was a matter of will if she couldn't hear anything but the crowd. It's not a "put your head down and push through it" situation unfortunately.

    In the history of the world.... lesser performers have recovered where she couldn't care much less.

    unless you're deaf there is no way in hell you've never heard Celine Deion sing that Titantic song. You couldn't have avoided that if you tried. If you've spent more than 5 minutes in a store shopping the last 5 years you've heard Adele, you might not have known it but you did.
