    Very poor performance.

    I agree it wasn’t her best, but it’s the thought that counts.

    rest in peace, king of pop.

    Eh. Her hands always annoy me when she sings.
    but i give her props for singing when clearly you can tell she was
    emotional.

  • Loocky

    Yeah agreed.
    As a MC fan I felt sorry 4 her. I think the best performance was Stevie Wonder.

  • thalia

    Loved It.Thanks Mariah.

  • Tarynd

    I just watched all of this on tv and it was very sad . i agree not the best performance of her but i loved what brooke and magic johnson had to say but when Paris spoke i broke into tears that was the most memorable thing to me there.

  • missuk

    I thought she would have been better – although she did improve nearer the end of the performance. But again, it is the thought that counts – R.I.P Michael Jackson xoxoxox

  • Velvet Goldminee

    Fantastic performance . Thankyou Mariah . R,I.P MJ

    Oh Mimi.. now that you’re getting older you should stop using that high voice. It cuts too much now.

    her voice sounds amazing when she’s singing regularly.

    when Michael’s daughter Paris went up and talked, i cried so hard :( Then she leaned on Janet and i cried harder. Those poor kids. I hope they stay with his family, and not Deebe Rowe or whatever

    Mariah was very good, not as good as she once was but good enough. I’m just glad Jamie Fox, Beyonce, Jay Z had no part in this tribute cuz they all suck azzzzzzzzzzz.

  • stefanyxoxo

    she SUCK! what the hell happened to her voice aaww my ears!!!!!

  • mela

    More than ever, those children need to be with the Jackson family. After seeing Paris speak at the memorial, and the entire Jackson family support her…it’s unthinkable that Debbie Rowe would try to take those children away from the family they’ve been raised with.

    I hope those children can stay together and stay with the Jackson family.

  • someone

    That was the worst performance at the memorial service..she could have stayed home..

  • Shakirakitten

    The memorial service was lovely, Mariah Carey sang beautifully and the entire program was sweet and dignified. At the end, Michael’s daughter was so heart rending that I broke up and it was sad to see those children, who had been so carefully guarded, out and about with their family and missing their father so very much.

  • lala

    Mariah was a big disappointment, but Jermaine, Stevie, Usher, John, Jennifer and This Is It! crew did a great job! MJ would have been proud…may he rest in peace.

  • steve korda

    Hey Folks! Mariah did OK! It’s Michael Jackson’s memorial – not an MTV video shoot!

  • Linzie

    @meme:

    Agree!!!

  • bea

    wasnt her best but she’ll come around.. i felt the emotion which was important.the end was such a nice touch.

    agree with steve korba: “Hey Folks! Mariah did OK! It’s Michael Jackson’s memorial – not an MTV video shoot!”

  • madloverci

    My ears are bleeding! Mariah was A.W.F.U.L. If I had $1 for every note she missed I’d be rich. And there is NO excuse for her performance – Jennifer Hudson belted out her song to perfection, Stevie Wonder was more emotional but held it together and sang perfectly, and even that little 12-year-old boy from the UK, Shaheen, sang his little heart out well. Mariah sucked like a hooker.

  • April

    She’s losing her extraordinary voice. :(

  • tia

    I blame Nick Cannon

  • http://dlisted.com lakers fan in boston

    ughh why would they invitve mimoo to sing
    cant stand her a bit
    i still cant believe some guys think she’s hot
    LOL!!

  • LuckyL

    Hers was horrible. Please post Stevie Wonder’s.

  • Ariana

    I HATE MARIAH! EW EW EWWWW….they should have had david cook do his interpretation of billy jean that he did on American Idol that was amazing!

  • joren

    Does this bitch own a dress that shows a LITTLE less cleavage? For gods sake woman, you’re at a Memorial service, not some disco. Cover your tits for once.

  • joanne

    Being she’s Mariah Carey, that was a bad performance. she was so much better a decade ago, what has happened to her voice?

  • Wille

    she’s still much better than that crackhead houston.

  • jamie

    are you people deaf! sure it wasnt as good as 90′s mariah but it was still better than Jennifer hudson’s perfomance. You people should be ashamed of yourselves Mariah will always be one of the best singers and perfomers in the music industry. She is still up there with all the great divas. But anyways, you people should be commenting on how great she did for being so emotional because its obvious that MJ was a big influence in her career. and that’s a fact haters!

    God Bless the Jackson family and i hope you can all make it through this difficult time.

    P.S. I personally think she should have sang “one sweet day” because it fit the moment better, but she still did great.

  • michelle

    You can tell she was fighting back tears during the performance. But she did a great job. And c’mon, it’s a memorial service, do you expect this to be an awards show???

  • Paranel

    She was emotional. What do you expect?

  • Tatiana miller

    Mariah was ready to start crying just look at her face !
    the end was very, very emotional and nice !

  • David

    I think the performance was touching, she was obviously upset after hearing the Rev speak.

    But it is a memorial, so sad that people would put down a performance at a funeral…so sad..

  • Just saying…

    Just tell it like it is. Mariah has lost her spark ! She’s let all these young’ns like Christina, Beyonce and Leona take the centre stage in the recent years and unfortunately they could easily out-sing her today!!

    The 1990s were her prime time – now she should try and focus on the ‘business’ side of the industry. Apparently she was good in her recent movie.

  • Raquel

    Oh please she lost NOTHING!

    Mariah in a bad performance is still better then the rest, now stop making fool of yourselves people, you have no clue!

  • what

    she was horrible as usual she should of stayed home and played w/ her child husband.

  • ya right

    @Tatiana miller:
    she was only ready to cry because it wasn’t all about her she’s so nasty and dresses like a ass today wasn’t about the tits.

  • maria

    What the hell is up with the hand movements? Is she singing or leading the 5th grade band? Very poor performance on her part.

  • huh

    its Michael Jackson’s memorial though it may seem as though she is emotional one may let the obvious slide through the backdoor. i’ll understand that its not about mariah and its about MJ so it wouldn’t matter whether she pulled off the song or actually anyone because it was a day to remember MJ but though as a human being/ a person one wouldn’t fail to notice the change in vocal strength that MC once had… don’t get me wrong she can still sing but not as before.

    @ the inaugural ball when she sang hero i was shock myself because it just wasn’t her, also @ x factor show when she sang it just wasn’t the same and the list goes on

    for me i believe that as long as you have a gift to sing you should treasure it and also use it for GOD

    its sad that her singing voice has lack extremeness (if that’s a word) but then again mariah’s image has change all round and not just her voice

  • mjforever

    it’s so sad!!
    don’t care about MARIAH “vocal”… it’s Michael Jackson !!

    good job, Michael & Mariah : )

  • naomi

    why are you so mean? she was sad you can see that in her face, nobody does a good performance when they’re sad.

  • wickedmish

    As usual, Mariah had her flop t%$s hanging out. Probably trying to distract from her awful singing. Ugh.

  • Seriously!

    WTF? I have never blogged, but couldn’t resist too the ingnorance I’ve heard here. The lady is in mourning, her voice cracked intitially, because, again, she is in mourning. What do you all expect? Grandeur. I am simply, appalled at the lack of consideration for the meaning of this occasion. WOW, are you all that disgraceful.
    Tell me it isn’t so.

  • Mozo

    F-U seriously. She was terrible. A fitting tribute for michael would have been an excellent performance. she sucked
