    Hey guys! I just saw Mariah Carey's Merry Christmas Special and the last song she sings is with her Mom, Patricia Carey. They are both spectacular! Especially Mariah. There are many "live" performances where Mariah is obviously lip-syncing, THIS is definitely NOT one of them. enjoy!

    Mariah was amazing last night - she rarely disappoints me though. While she's had some live vocal trouble the past few years, whatever she's doing to solve it is working. She's not quite the same as she used to be, but she sounded close last night.

    I also liked the movie (yeah, I know it was cheesy, but what MC fan could NOT like the movie?) and the album was not nearly as bad as people made it out to be - it has some excellent ballads on it.

    She has a nice voice but I wouldn't say it was amazing. Not even close. It's more just a pop music voice whereas her mother really can sing better.

    I believe her mother is an opera singer.

    "Thanks for that weather report Cynthia. Our next story, there have been reported outbreaks of bank robberies late last night all across the nation. The twist? Apparently, they were all conducted by the city's neighborhood dogs. The only thing that the Secretary of Defense Department could pinpoint as the cause of this frightening display of animal behavior was that it happened during Mariah Carey's Christmas Special late last night.

    Scientists and psychologists alike believe that, in an effort to feed starving kids in Africa, Carey staged this Christmas show as a ploy to distract the nations citizens from her real intentions: using her supersonic voice to command all of the nations dogs to do her bidding.

    Daniel has Mariah Carey out in the field... Daniel?"

    Her voice is getting back into better form now that she's been off the booze/champagne for a while due to her attempts to get pregnant and being pregnant.

    I read an article tonight on a music website that said she is the 'last relevant diva' in Pop Music. She has been around for 20 years in the music industry, that's longer than most musical acts of today. To be honest, with her success record, impression on the music industry, and her MASSIVE list of #1's and awards, I think she could record 'Mary Had a Little Lamb' or sing the phone book and still be looked at as ultra successful.

    I went to buy her new Christmas album today in two different stores and both were sold out. I had to order it online this afternoon.

    It looked like she started lip syncing towards the end of the song...she is known to do that. Her vocals are not like they use to be. She hit too many of those high notes in the beginning of her career and she is suffering for it now.

    I don't think anyone sane would accuse Mariah of not being able to sing...her song selections after her early stuff has been questionable--but in the end she won a younger fan base which has extended her career for sure. Thus never had to compete with Whitney Houston directly--she proofed this by releasing an LP the same day or week as Whitney once and her sales were still the same and Whitney did well too. Mariah if she wants will still be around for the next 20 year if she wants.

    I don't see a reason why she felt the need to out diva her own mother...her ego is amazing..that was not a true duet--Mariah sang over her own mother several times.

    If you think she has bad songs, stay out, and stick to your precious lady GAG. If you think she lip syncs, get a life, or go watch your queen britney for some ACTUAL lip syncing.

    Don't look at it as Mariah's ego took over, the actual song is done that way and it's their voices together that makes the chorus so great. I LOVE how their voices blend.
