Mariah Carey Reclaims Title At NextStage

Thor Christensen of The Dallas Morning News was on hand for Mariah Carey’s concert at NextStage in Grand Prairie on Tuesday night. Christensen says “as awkward and corny as the show was at times, it also reaffirmed her status as one of pop’s most powerful vocalists.” He added, “Ms. Carey might never own the stage the way Ms. Jackson or do, but then again, they’ll never have a voice half as potent as hers.”

    What’s with all these reviews of Mariah’s little theatre performances. We all know she’s a boring ass live singer. Why does she even bother supporting an album that spawned such huge flops for singles. These mini shows aren’t going to help it out.

    Ms. Carey owns the stage the way Ms. Jackson or Madonna do, but then again, they’ll never have a voice half as potent as hers. Even thou I like Madonna’s show because she’s a freak (think Virgin/Girle Tour) and Janet has been doing the same show for the last 15 years…Mariah’s show was laid back, well sung and she looked sexy and happy. Madonna’s last show was OK, but, it was a little boring because she played B-sides all nite. Mariah gave the crowd, what they wanted…they hits. I saw kids in tears, Grandma’s in tears, Old, Young, Mixed, White, Black, Rican, all in the house together. She’s doing her thing.

    Mariah set out to make a good CD. It is good. It has sold 1.5 million copies in the U.S. and Thru the Rain, was a number 1 hit on the sales charts. Worldwide she is approaching 3.5 million sales. So her CD is a Worldwide hit. 5million peeps have brought her CD. Granted Mariah, Madonna, Whitney are not selling like Christina and Britney, because they did that for the last 13 to 20 years. It’s time for others to shine. But, Quality-wise–Mariah’s CD is steller.

    Learn the facts before you open your nasty trap!! Flop?!? It’s sold almost 4 million, and that’s w/out the re-release. She hasn’t been promoting the album much cause she’s taking it easy. Its really easy to sit back on your ass and judge everyone, huh. Who are you to judge her? I know….NO ONE!

    4 million Ha. Not even close. If it sold a million Mariah would be lucky. It didn’t even have one hit single.

    “Loser Alert”^ You’re obviously a retard if you believe that Charmbracelet hasn’t sold a million copies. In the U.S. alone it’s sold over a million and counting. World wide sales are quickly approaching 5 million copies. Not only did Charmbracelet produce a hit but two hits, “Through the Rain” peaked at I believe, #81 in the HOT 100 singles chart, Which you dumb@ss makes it a HIT! Boy (I Need You) was also a hit. Stop being a baby, and go get a job or something. When you put out albums that have collectively sold over 155 million copies world wide then you can judge, but till then you need to shut the fu** up!! You’re some fat house probably sitting at your computer every day surfing the net, eating twinkies, with a gut hanging over you knees. Go get a life, LOSER!! Crusader!! Mariah Forever!!

    Charmbracelet has not sold near 1 million copies in the US and worldwide sales are sh1t for the album. It has gone Platinum but that means 1 million copies SHIPPED Not SOLD. Since it has shipped over 1 million copies there are a tons of stores with loads of Charmbracelet copies that no one wants to buy. These store owners will remember this next time a new Mariah CD comes out and not order it. “Through the Rain” only peaked at #81, what a huge flop. You’re an idiot if you think that’s a hit. Mariah used to always get to #1 with her first single from an album. Now all she can manage is #81, HaHaHA. ! Boy (I Need You) didn’t even make it on the Billboard top 100. Bomb #2. Same goes for Heartache. .Bomb #3.

    I agree, Mariah isn’t known to be a dynamic performer, despite the power of her voice. Most of her reviews, good, point this out. And her material needs to mature.

    Whatever, Mariah will never bring to the stage what Madonna does. Sorry, even if her last show wasn’t that great, She has better dance skills and charisma than Mariah. And when she was Mariah’s age, she was much better look and fit. Sorry, but, Madonnas are real.

    Charmbracelet was not a good quality Cd, she has much better. It got horrible reviews. And what does letting others shine have to do with anything? Talent is talent. Jimmy Page re-digitalized one of their albums from the 70’s and people bought it like crazy.
