Mariah Carey Does ‘The Today Show’


My girl Mariah Carey, who just released her latest album Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel this past Tuesday, performed live in Rockefeller Square on The Today Show earlier today and she did a pretty damn good job, if I say so myself. Mimi was still rockin’ her mid-90’s big hair look but the more I see it, the more it continues to grow on me. Here are a few photos from her performance earlier this morning:

As you can imagine, Mimi brought along her much younger hubby Nick Cannon and made sure to give him some sugar in between performances so that the folks in their general vicinity would know that they are still so much in lurve. After the jump, check out a couple photos of Mr. & Mrs. Cannon lovin’ all up on one another and watch video of Mimi performing her new singles Obsessed, I Want to Know What Love Is, H.A.T.E.U. and her classic track Make It Happen

Try as I might, I still can’t get used to seeing these two as a married couple. The recycled 90’s look I can get used to, this marriage … well, I’m still workin’ on it. But I love me some Mimi so … let’s move on. Here is video of Mimi performing Obsessed:

Here is video of Mimi performing I Want to Know What Love Is:

Here is video of Mimi performing H.A.T.E.U.:

And here is video of Mimi performing Make It Happen (complete with gospel choir):

I don’t care what anyone says … Mariah can still belt out the jams. I haven’t been able to listen to her new album just yet (it downloaded to my computer while I was in San Francisco this week) but I’m loving what I’ve been hearing thus far. She sounded and looked great, no?

    They are trying way too hard to make it seem like they are in love and life is perfect…..

    I’ve always liked Mimi, she has some killer pipes, still dont like the 90’s hair but i guess it could be alot worse. AS for her and Nick, hey if it works, doesnt bother me, she was what 20 when old Tommy Mottola married her.

  • Shanna

    I saw on a magazine cover that she was preggers…
    Any truth to the rumors?

  • Diana

    Yeah, I’m looking at body language. In the pic where they are kissing he is sort of backing off and in the second pic, she’s all into it and he’s mugging for the camera, “look guys! I’m married to Mariah!”

  • Natasha

    I love me some Mariah and she looks great but uhm… her voice isn´t all that anymore!! She needs to rest and than sing again like the old Mariah!!!

  • Kendra

    I don’t like her hair so much here, but I’ve been LOVING the super curly hair she’s been rocking..

    im lovin the looks shes been rockin lately. and i can i just say H.A.T.E.U. is such a great song :)

  • eileen

    I don’t care what anyone says… Mariah can sing. She is most definitely in the top 95th percentile of singers EVER. People who put her down are just haters. You don’t have to like her, but you can’t deny her talent.

    i love her. and if she’s happy with Nick, let her be happy. they’re cute.

    The more I hear Obsessed, the more I like it. The “bathin in windex” line cracks me up! I dont think I would buy her cd, though. I haven’t liked her most of her music recently because she always sings in that whisper kind of voice.

  • I like the Mariah who SINGS. Not the rap-whispery kind of singing she does now.


  • schmee

    I like Mariah as much as the next person, but I think the big mid-90’s hair only exists to try and distract from her big mid-90’s ass. The girl looks like shes been eating lunch with Oprah

  • Lilliah

    Ria, your consistent nastiness just makes me want to have love for everyone!

  • debho

    Those blokes have got their work cut out holding her up like that. lol Holy smokes, she’s put on weight…not that I have a problem with that. I have a problem with her hair though.

  • ya she sounded better than she has in the past, I’m a fan to death though, luv the h.a.t.e.u. song and “up out my face boy” have to check that song out trent

    Her voice on this album sounds terrific. It has more “power” to it than it ever has. I really get tired of people complaining about Mariah not singing the way she used to- she has to sell records, and the way she sang 15 years ago doesn’t sell anymore. Besides, it’s more artistic and expressive, and her timing and phrasing are really brilliant. It’s 2009, people- get with the program.

  • Thanks again for the great video links.
    So refreshing to see somewhat enhanced
    “Live!” singing

    Seeing the Foreigner live didn’t hurt so much.

    With ya trent – she still has THE voice. Best in the industry.I cannot believe everyone excepts ones voice to be exactly the same 20 years later nearly. She may not be as good as the 90’s but she still is good and if not still the best!

    Problem is she has that gentle voice when she sings normally until she belts out and hits the high notes. So of corse that voice is gonna change cause she has a very high gentle voice compared to someone like Xtine who sings very deeply. Not hatin on Xtina cause she is probably 3rd after Whitney – but i’m just drawin a comparison. I believe Xtina’s voice will be around for a while, not cause she is young – but when she is Mariahs age and if she is still around, i dont find her voice will change that dramatically.

    I mean just cause Mariah is known for her wicked voice – doesn’t mean she needs to prove it on every album. She has already proved herself thousands of times over thousands of performances. Let her show off her writing skills or production side of things if she wants instead of belting out a whistle tone on song after song, album after album. I mean compare Beyonces I AM SASHA to BDAY – there aren’t as many screams or nutso outbursts like she does DEJAVU to be found on I AM SASHA – but she still has a good voice.

  • Janice

    That performance of hateu was top notch!! It’s my fav song on the CD.

  • Isabelle

    I love her but she has totally lost her voice.

  • noway

    She looks a little fuller in the tummy area… preggers?
