She's got a great voice.
I can see why performers lip sync/ sing on top of a track while performing for large audiences, and/or while dancing around, it just sounds better.   On one hand it is funny it happened, on another it is an unfortunate situation for everyone.     It is getting played way too much in the media, who cares... move on.

I heard about it - and it's unfortunate.

Back in the day, performers rarely sang live (unless it was a concert) - it was all recorded.

If you look at performances of performers in the 80's and before, you will see that nearly most lip synched to their recorded music.

And Mariah's mishap is probably one of the reasons why a lot of performers did it that way back then.

I think it was... silly.... a little embarrassing for her, towards her fans for sure.... I believe they must have felt betrayed :D
But hey... it's always her...

It anyway gave a lot to talk about.... or else no one would have ever said anything about her NYE performance...

She's gonna prepare good for her next performance... that's for sure! :D

What an absolute train wreck that was!


Edit: LOL - it didn't even occur to me right away when I wrote that.  I was actually ON the train on New Year's Eve when it happened. I saw a news alert come across my phone about Mariah Carey's botched performance and it wasn't until a day or two later that I was able to get video of it.        Ultimately I am glad she was in the train wreck and not me!

I loved Mariah Carey when she was younger.  Now, she tries too hard to be sexy and she flaunts the fact that she's a Diva.  I still think she has an incredible voice; but my opinion of her as a person, has gone downhill.
Have a great day!

I didn't see the incident in question, but I know lipsyncing can sink a career. Ashley Simpson (Anybody remember her? Jessica's little sis that had a career for a hot minute?) She was caught lipsyncing on SNL back in the day and her career never seemed to recover.

So what are your throughts on her NYE "performance"?

Hello! :) :D

To me I honestly don't care! Mariah Carey have a great voice one bad performance shouldn't ruin her entire career. We all make mistakes sometimes, why should we keep bringing up her mistakes? I think the performance was made to be a disaster for her publicity. Look since this bad performance Mariah Carey has been all over the news and I'm tired of hearing about it. The real problem is that we treat celebrities like Gods :notworthy:, like they can't never make mistakes. When something like this happen to show they are human we get all upset about it. Lets move on! :rainbow:

I don't know why but I really don't like her! Any performance she does doesn't ring my bell at all!

I did not see the show live but did see quite a bit of the recorded portions.  It didn't look much like a performance at all.  That's probably why you have the word in quotes. 

I like her voice, I have a couple of her cd's but I'm really not much for live concerts.  There seems to be so many more 'mishaps' these days with performers; not just Mariah.
