Mariah Carey took to her Twitter account yesterday to apologize for her dreadful rendition of the Jackson 5 classic “I’ll Be There” with Trey Lorenz.
Dreadful is an understatement. Carey was absolutely horrible. She was subpar as she stumbled and faltered from the opening note. Even Trey’s soaring high notes couldn’t save her.
“Trying to sing today was basically impossible for me. I could barely keep myself from crying,” Mariah later Tweeted.
“I’m sorry that I wasn’t able to pull it together and really do it right, but I was literally choked up when I saw him there in front of me….One thing I know is, we will never really have to say goodbye to MJ. His legacy lives on through his music and the millions of people he inspired with his timeless music. He will be forever in our hearts.”
