Mariah Carey celebrates her official residency At Caesars Palace Hotel in Las Vegas

Mariah Carey is not the gifted singer she once was. Decades of touring and recording have taken a toll on her vocal cords. Recent live performances by Mariah ended in disaster as she struggled to hit the high notes that once came so effortlessly for her.

So it comes as no surprise that Mariah has already canceled a show one week into her residency. It probably wasn't a good idea to offer Mariah a residency and expect her to perform multiple times a week.

From Gossip Cop:

Mariah Carey cancelled her Wednesday “#1 To Infinity” show in Las Vegas, one week into her residency at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace. The singer has been struck with bronchitis after performing just three times. The cancellation was very last-minute, and ticket-holders only found out when they arrived at the theater, where a sign read, “Tonight’s performance has been cancelled and will not be rescheduled.”

Carey posted at 9:30 p.m. local time, “Hey guys.. I’ve been fighting bronchitis for the past few days.. almost better but on mandatory vocal rest per doctor’s orders. I’m so sorry to cancel tonight’s show but I promise to make it up to you!!! Love you always, MC.” Gossip Cop has reached out for clarification since Carey promised to “make it up,” while the sign at Caesars Palace noted the cancelled show would “not be rescheduled.”

      No surprises here. How long did they think that she could keep up that scream thing that she does and calls it singing? I read a comment from someone who attended her show who said her whole performance was shaky but she hit every "high note." Chile that ain't no high note. That's a scream. She can't sing in the lower register, but she's hitting that glass shattering scream everytime. Sorry. I ain't never been a fan. Bih can't sing to me.

      Mariah didn't bounce all the way back from them babies. Not all women can especially when you have them in your later years. So she has a girdle or two now.. :shrug: The butterfly is now a bumblebee but okay...

      Umm...yes this too. But Mimi has vocal nodules that her azz shoulda had removed 20 years ago. Imma jump out on a limb and say the 1995 "Daydream" album. At the least "Butterfly" which was 97.

      Damn nodules probably done turned to stone damn near.

    • whitty hutton

      Plumb lazy and in withdrawals. They dried her out for opening night, complete with Memorex dap tape so the high notes would seem realistic...but alas, MC fell off the wagon in less than a week. This isn't gonna end well. :no:

      Its what Sandra calls Narcissism. She craves the attention. But she doesn't realize she is ruining her legacy by trying to stay relevant instead of going out on top... a lot of stars do this and they never reach the pinnacle they once had and we wind up feeling sorry for them instead of inspired by them...

      So my office manager (bless her incompetent heart) didnt hire a full time cleaning service. Instead she has her daughter come in 3 times a week (she bout 20 & reminds me of my son, Joey Carrington, & Dubb20) .

      So guess where the garbage at? Guess :)

      MaRIA Carey refuses to grow up, grow older gracefully, and cut out that ridiculous, "I'm fabulous, dahling" schtick.

      Get over yourself, lady. Your voice isn't the same, your shape ain't the same, your fan base ain't the same - the only thing that's the same is your ridiculous antics.

      Let go. Let God.

      wow mariah looks horrible.

    • Lodak

      Mariah hasn't hit a high note live since the 90s. I suspect she went into the studio on a bender during that era when she realized her voice was failing. They've been dubbing those samples into her music and on her live performances since then.

      Since that time, every time she begins flailing her arms and jamming her finger in her ear you know she's a lip-synching those notes. The flailing is a cheap magician-esque attempt to distract the viewer. I cringe every time I see the fakery. The NYT review hints at it.

      Bye Mariah. Thank you for "Can't Let Go."
