The BET Awards, which airs next Sunday (June 30), will have quite a few performances, despite a lack of promotion. Mariah Carey, Nicki Minaj and Ciara joined the list of performers this week, which already included Kendrick Lamar, Miguel & Chris Brown. No word yet on if Carey and Miguel will perform together, but Ciara will release the music video for her latest single “I’m Out” before her performance at the awards show’s pre-show, according to Rap-up. Comedian Chris Tucker will serve as this year’s host.
Mariah Carey is officially making her musical return this summer. The “Beautiful” singer tweeted the release date for her forthcoming album this afternoon with the message “The New Era Begins” and the hashtag #MC723. No word yet on what the album will be called, but Mariah’s new single sure has me excited for what’s to come! What about you?!
Hot 97′s Summr Jam XX featured many of hip-hop’s finest, but a few R&B acts stopped by to perform too. Miguel had a set early in the afternoon and brought out Mariah Carey to perform her new single. Wearing booty shorts and a crop top that revealed her swimsuit top, MC was certainly a nice addition to Miguel’s already energetic set.
Watch the two perform “Beautiful” below. Continue reading
Mariah Carey & Miguel appeared on Good Morning America this morning and everything went wrong. No, Miguel didn’t harm anyone this time, but still. Shortly after performing “Always Be My Baby” Carey’s dress popped open in the back and she exclaimed “Oh, sh*t” on live television. We’ll chalk it all up to the fact that it was “very early” (8:30 a.m.) and Mariah Carey is not use to being up at that hour. The diva hadn’t even put her mic pack on before she got on stage!
Following the entertaining mishaps, Miguel joined Mariah Carey on stage for a performance of their latest single “Beautiful.” The audio wasn’t the best, but Carey’s vocals were 100% live so that was a bonus! Continue reading
One of the perks of being a judge on a single reality show is guaranteed promo and a performance slot to perform new and old material. Mariah Carey took advantage of this perk when she took the stage for nearly five minutes during Season 12′s finale to perform a medley of her hits, including “My All” and “We Belong Together,” before ending with her latest single “Beautiful.” It didn’t look like her vocals were live, but she looked amazing regardless.

It hasn’t even been a week since Mariah Carey unveiled her new Miguel-assisted single “Beautiful” and the diva has already released the video for the song. The video debuted on American Idol moments ago and features the Idol judge riding on the back of Miguel’s motorcycle and teasing him as he sits in a red convertible and watches. Mimi comes across as a lovestruck teenager as she giggles and dances for the guy who makes her feel “beautiful” and “undressable.”
Check out the video for the new summer jam below! Continue reading
“You’re beautiful. Good Lord you’re f***ing beautiful.”
Good news all around! Mariah Carey hopes to release her forthcoming album this summer and today she released the Miguel-assisted “Beautiful.” The song is built around the guitar riff that fans heard in the teaser clip, and features sweet lyrics and Carey’s signature airy vocals over distorted instrumentation. After “Triumphant,” this is certainly a step in the right direction…and it grows on me more and more with every listen.
In an interview with Ryan Seacrest this morning, Carey revealed plans to have American Idol’s top 3 contestants, Candice, Kree and Angie, on the new album.
Apparently Carey thinks teasing fans is funny.
In true diva-like fashion Mariah Carey released a 30 second teaser for her forthcoming single “Beautiful,” but aside from the singer’s laugh we don’t hear any vocals…just a rewinding sound and a looped guitar melody. The video does show Mimi chilling with Miguel, though. The popular R&B crooner will also be featured on the single when it’s released in full on May 6. Continue reading
Head Diva Mariah Carey released the music video for “Almost Home” moments ago. Like most videos for soundtrack songs, the video is full of clips from the movie, but it’s Mariah’s glamorous black and white performance shots that steal the show.
Hopefully MiMi will perform “Almost Home” OR a new song from her forthcoming album on the American Idol stage this season. It’s only right.
“Almost Home” serves as the lead single for the “Oz: The Great and Powerful” soundtrack. The film is in theaters as of today. Continue reading
Over the weekend Mariah Carey released a snippet of her new song “Almost Home,” and today it premiered in full. From the snippet, I knew the song would feature Carey’s powerhouse vocals, but I didn’t think it would be THIS good! The 90s reminiscent, Stargate-produced track gives fans everything they’ve been asking for: stunning vocals and a catchy beat.
“Almost Home” serves as the lead single for “Oz: The Great and Powerful,” which hits theatres on March 8. Continue reading
