Pat got me on a moomoo tip.

This clip brings a smile to my face. She's just so effortless and breezy when she hits those insane notes. And all the people backing her up are having so much fun and so amazing (check out David Cole on the piano). I feel like I do when I watch the Body Electric number from Fame.

I still love mimi now

But there was something so optimistic about her back in the early 90s.

I can't say I like new Mariah. As far as I'm concerned, Mariah died in after Butterfly, and Mimi is the one who killed her. Tracks like My All, Vanishing, and Vision of Love are unparalleled by other pop artists. Her voice was impeccable back then too. Now when she performs she sounds like she just ran a marathon, she is constantly out of breath. She's often pitchy nowdays too, and her voice always sounds tired and overused, which is to be expected. Her only good performance in recent years was in 2003, when she sung at a stevie wonder tribute, and she sang in the alto range, I think that area of her voice is stronger than her overused mezzo and soprano areas. I strongly recommend looking at all her 1993 proctor theater performances on utube. They are the most flawless live vocal performances out there. Anyways, I'm a fan of old mariah, but new mariah, including Mimi, annoys me very much.

I couldn't have said it better emerson. I loved her back in the day. Her low range is amazing, but she never uses it anymore. I thought she was gonna make her comeback with glitter though. Who would have thought it would bomb so bad?

Don't nobody say nuthin' bad 'bout Mimi, ya hear? The poor thing is likely to slit her wrists again over any bad publicity.

(AlthoughI agree with emerson, et al).
