New York Times Rips Mariah Carey's Vegas Residency To Shreds

May 14. 2015

On May 7, 2015 the New York Times issued a scathing review of Mariah Carey’s Vegas residency entitled “Mariah Carey and Her Can’t-Look-Away Debut in Las Vegas.” The newspaper pointed out the fact Carey’s voice has significantly deteriorated, as the Judiciary Report has stated for the past few years. The New York Times review stated of Carey:

“But the notes have not been there for Ms. Carey of late: Some performances have been markedly off-base, the subject of intense scrutiny. Ms. Carey is still durable, and sometimes excellent, but her once-transcendent voice is like decaying manufacturing machinery: It still churns, but the product might be polished or dinged. You don’t know until it happens.”

“When it came to the notes, though, the struggle was real” and “’Fantasy’ featured Ol’ Dirty Bastard, who died in 2004, rapping via video, and he felt more alive than Ms. Carey, who was right on stage” and “even Ms. Carey’s movements were kept to a minimum. Several times, she was wheeled out on stage - singing in a pink convertible, singing on a Jet Ski, singing on a round bed.”

The New York Times also accused Carey of lip sync some of her show, “But as the night wore on, it became increasingly unclear whether the sounds coming through the speakers were coming from her mouth.” The article goes on to state Carey is contracted to perform 50 shows over 2-years at the Coliseum at Caesar’s Palace. Considering Carey’s barely done 3 shows and there is already a problem, her residency is going to be very difficult, as I anticipated months ago.
