Mariah Carey Disappoints In China

One of Mariah’s fans has posted on the fan site Friends of Mariah messageboard that Mariah’s concert in Shanghai was a major disappointment and many of her Chinese fans were even leaving early because it was such a disaster. The concert was outside in the cold and Mariah as usual insisted on wearing her skimpy outfits and even cut several songs short. The fan indicates her voice sounded bad too.

Read on for the whole review by the fan who by the way goes by the name Irresistible Boy LOL.

Well Guys, I just got back from the Shanghai concert…and all I can say is that I am disappointed. This is my first Mariah concert live and I had such high expectations after hearing the other concert files. There where more than 20,000 people present You can say that the stadium of 29,000 was 90-95% full. I was seated at the front row (row 14) and could see Mariah very clearly and closely.

The show started an hour late with many of the Chinese fans complaining that is should have started on time, but they are not really used to international acts. There show started on the wrong footing when at beginning of, I expected Mariah to come out from behind and walk through the crowd but when they started Heartbreaker she was already singing the first few lines and people where looking for her and she just came out on the stage. The stage was very small so there wasn’t enough room for her to move in. The crowd was very boring and proper. They just down the whole and told me and my friends to sit down when we were standing, and they didn’t know most of the songs. I guess the Chinese are not very use yet to international superstar acts so they don’t know how to respond yet to an international performer.

The show was very short, about 1 hour and 15 minutes and SHE CUT OFF 5 SONGS (SI, CLOWN, BOTH, ABMB, VOL). So I felt cheated paying 200$ for a 1 hour show (She was gone changing all the time and Trey Lorenz sang) and the other Chinese felt cheated as well (this is a lot of money for Asia or for any part of the world for a concert).

Her voice was raspy and not in the very best condition, she had a hard time reaching the high notes and I know because I have the files of her other concerts to prove it. I guess this mess of a concert can be attributed to the weather. The weather in Shanghai is very cold right now and anyone wearing those outfits (the same ones in the other concerts) would have been freezing their asses off and not be able to sing properly. It just makes me wonder what was going on in the head of Mariah wearing these outfits for the concert. She could have just put on some more warm clothes to protect her voice and performance but she still wore the skimpy ones….yes she looked good but it is like wearing a bikini outdoors in winter…it doesn’t make sense and it is not good for your health.

The highlight of the show was Without You and Hero when everybody stood up and sang along and you felt the excitement in the air. But it was too late since the show was already ending. Some people where leaving after Make It Happen and one of the dancers had to come out to guide the audience to chant for an encore. After the show, people left complaining how short the show was and unsatisfied.

I was just disappointed thinking that Mariah didn’t do her best to entertain the audience. She came, she sang, she danced a little, and then changed outfits, didn’t do much interaction with the crowd or tried to bring them up to their feet. The crowd was just waiting for her to tell them to stand up and dance or clap their hands, they were just waiting to be guided. MAYBE I SHOULD BLAME THE WEATHER FOR THIS, MAYBE MARIAH IS NOT FEELING VERY WELL but expect some bad reviews from the Chinese press tomorrow. I hope she has learned her lesson and wear something more warm for the Friday show and give a much better performance.

If she goes to the Philippines with this type of performance, its much better for her to cancel the show, because the Filipinos will be her harshest critic since they know her songs by heart and they expect to be bowled over.

ANYWAY, I STILL LOVE MARIAH AND JUST WANTED TO SHARE WITH YOU GUYS MY CONCERT EXPERIENCE. I WAS HOPING TO WRITE SOMETHING MORE POSITIVE AND RAVE ABOUT THE CONCERT BUT THIS IS HOW I FEEL AT THIS POINT AND I WANT TO BE OBJECTIVE. I ENVY THE OTHERS WHO HAVE HAD ATTENDED THE PREVIOUS CONCERT WHERE SHE SOUNDED GREAT. I HOPE THE OTHERS WHO WILL WATCH THE FUTURE SHOWS WILL HAVE A MUCH GREATER TIME AND THAT SHE WILL GIVE THE BEST PERFORMANCE OF HER LIFE. I’LL JUST WAIT FOR THE DVD TO EXPERIENCE IT. GOOD LUCK MARIAH AND BEST WISHES!!!!

    Yeah, I can admit it isn’t very smart to wear nothing in the cold.. which is probably also why her voice sounded less than great.. but all in all.. she’s still my girl. I love her

  2. hotstuff says:

    Well, just one persons opinions. even tho she doesn’t dance, doesn’t really use the visual element that the stage provides, Mariah’s one of the true singers out there who doesn’t even have to move but just open her mouth and belt and it gives you gooesbumps.

  3. NJHottie24 says:

    Can we get a real review? Not some made up stuff. Wait till the reviews come out tomorrow in the paper douche bag webongo.

    is this the hater that actually goes to a Mariah site, they were caught, haha, you are a Mariah fan, live it , learn it, love it, you lost, we won

    Well, that’s one very excellent news there. Mariah is getting Mental and don’t know what she’s doing. She’s basically milking out her lamb-hos so she could get the $$ to get a doctor. Too bad she can’t dance, sing, or act now. It is always good to leave the circus early to go catch a better act from Cher, J-Lo or Britney.

    I HATE THIS STUPID ASS SITE FULL OF A-HOLES! TO THE PEOPLE WHO DON’T HATE ON MARIAH CAREY, I’M NOT TALKING TO YOU! I’M TALKING TO ALL OF THE IDIOTS WHO THINK THEY WOULD SAY CRAP ABOUT MARIAH CAREY TO MY FACE! I WILL BEAT THE SNOT OUT OF YOU! THAT’S MY SISTER I’LL KILL YOU! YOU AIN’T HARD AND YOU’RE A LITTLE PUNK!

    It’s always a relief to hear that some lambs are checking into the mental hospital too to keep the Mariah company. They are desperate enough to sacrifice their ass to get screwed up. Hopefully, the DVD will turn out to be an “animal-hos gone wild” strip video.

    I don’t believe this Review is true, because I have listened to a lot of her performances off this Tour and they all were amazing. I also heard song’s from this Concert and they sounded just as amazing. SO it’s obvious this hater made this up. Or maybe a Mariah Fan didn’t love the Concert and had a few thing’s they didn’t like about it but the hater changed the review up. I heard some file’s from this Concert and it sounded great so I am gonna wait for a real review to post on this site.

    Another attempt from dumbass haters trying to bring Mariah down. keep them coming. believe it or not I actually enjoy your pathetic posts.

  9. Crusader says:

    This “review” has losers like madfan and weebongo written all over it. Don’t believe this crap people it’s obviously made up! Pathetic I tell you!

    An idiot obviously wrote this. There’s no objectivity to be found in this “review”. I seriously doubt if an actual fan wrote it. Besides, if it is true, maybe Mariah just had an off night. She is fading into the sunset, after all. This tour is a “swan song”. If you don’t know what a swan song is, check out Webster’s definitions below: 1:a song of great sweetness said to be sung by a dying swan 2 : a farewell appearance or final act or pronouncement Her career is dead, and as much as I love Mariah, there’s no way to bring it back. It was a nice run though.
