‘Last night’s situation was beyond my control’ – Mariah Carey apologises for THAT shocking performance exposing her vocal struggles
ON Wednesday night, Mariah Carey took to the stage for a live holiday performance of All I Want for Christmas is You.
But unfortunately for the Vision If Love singer, a video exposing her isolated vocals went viral – and it sounds as if she struggled.
Mariah seemed to be coping fine until she proceeded to try and hit the higher notes of the song, which forced her to apologise for the shaky performance.
She tweeted: “Last night’s situation was beyond my control.
“I apologise to all that showed up, you know that I would never want to disappoint you.”
However, some fans still felt the need to criticise her ability to sing.
One male tweeter wrote: “In other news, Nick Cannon must’ve got Mariah Carey’s voice in the divorce.”
Another added: “The only word to describe Mariah Carey at the Rockerfeller Tree Lighting: Unfortunate :/.”
Meanwhile, Mariah’s devoted fans leaped to her defence following the performance.
“People should really try and cut @MariahCarey some slack. Try and be at your professional best when your personal life is at it’s worst,” one female wrote.
Mexican actress Laura Flores added: “Stop criticising Mariah Carey, she s a great singer she just needs to heal her vocal cords.”
