Mariah Carey Caught Lip Syncing Her Hit Song! Watch Her Go Completely Silent For The High Notes Of This Performance!

| Filed under: Music MinuteMariah CareyGIFs

mariah carey lip sync today show always be my baby 3

Oh Mariah Carey, what happened?!

Mimi was on the Today Show late last week and performed a couple of oldie but goodie songs for the telecast, and one audience member caught her lip sync flub during Always Be My Baby!

We all know the We Belong Together songstress is cuhrazy talented with that voice of hers, but maybe it just isn't what it used to be.

Especially following her winded performance of All I Want For Christmas this past December!

Exercise those vocal chords and you'll be back to normal in no time, Meems!

Ch-ch-check out her performance, starting at the 2:35 mark, (below)!!

    I'm not surprised by this! Another proof that she can't sing anymore. not a big loss! If you want strong,beautiful and powerful vocals you go with Céline Dion.

    Perez I think you should take this down…don't post any random video that claims something, not with all the tricky audio tools out there. 1) There are other fan phone videos that show differently. 2) Suspiciously, this "lip-synching" smoking gun video doesn't even have the track audio that we and the audience would hear…usually on her lip-synching scandals you hear the stark difference between her voice and the track…not total vocal silence. Lip synching or not, does she REALLY have to prove she can sing after 24 or 25 years ? Why waste time on the negativity dude?

    no… it is real, her voice has been mess up since a long time, i remember when she failed singing live for stand up to cancer.. too bad, her voice was amazin

    Hmm. If this is real…she must have had some SERIOUS vocal rest when recording songs for her album because she sounds amazing on it. Pro-Tools couldn't do ALL of that. Mariah - if your voice is trashed, watch the alcohol consumption and take care of your voice. Eventually your body is going to go…that's just age. But the voice can last longer if you treat it right.

    this was live!! It was not her best performance of that song the day. it was obvious that she messed up the words and she even acknowledges it when she sings! it seems her mike went off while she was hitting the real high notes because u can hear it on the phone speaker of the person recording it than on the mike!!!!!! just take note Damn. why all the hate!!!!

    So what. Whether she lip synced or not. Morning is not good for Ms. Mariah. Seems like for all the songs there were backing tracks with the lead vocal along with the live mic.

    Perez oh Perez, you're a donut. The microphone cut out on her- I was there!

    Don't understand how some people can be so deluded. It's mimed. She has mimed the same part of this song for well over a decade. This clip hasn't been altered, it's what happened. The mic didn't just magically cut out over the belts, then come back when the belted part was over. God know's what magic she must use in the studio to belt out notes. The belts sound so strained and thin and whiny on her new album. I reckon theyre the result of a lot of attempts and a lot of layering.

  16. anthony says – reply to this

    its live! its obvious she messed up the words she even says it or sings that she forgot the words1? if it were lipped how could we hear here sing "I messed up the words etc"? you can hear that her mic was off when she tried to hit those super high notes but you can hear it on the cell of the person recording this…. this was not her best performance of that song for the day, but she slayed with her new song that same day!!!! Haters will hate but she is THE QUEEN OF POP!!!!!

    Re: anthony – You're actually retarded. The verses and easy parts are live, but the belted part is, and always has been since 2000, mimed. The doesn't just conveniently cut out at the hard bit and the come back straight after. Mariah is over. Her voice is done and a nasty hoe performing for evil African dictators!!!!!!

    Music is not just about sounding good, she looks awful seriously. She looks old and it's not the first time she can't powerfully hit the high notes. And even if she did, she should care for herself, look more presentable. Kim is a well rounded kind of gal but she is immaculate, Mariah looks old and chubby (with these loose locks) and not in a good way, kind of a runaway old lioness…I know she can take it (critics) and maybe time time around she should try to find her slimer figure (what happened to her breasts!!!! she sed to have a cute petite frame, she was so beautiful before)

    Um she wasn't lip-synching her mic went out….ya'll should know the difference. Stop trying to feed into the lip-synch rumors.

    Mr Perez Hilton is back to his old ways. first of all.. you cant lip sync a song in the studio and plus outside is not good for doing high notes because it can mess up your voice. this blog is full of shit.

    Hi,

    I'm a voice coach in Nashville. Just wanted to let you know from the video, that was her singing live. She tried to sing those notes (and I think was hoping the BGVs would fill in for her), but they wouldn't come out. That's what happens when you're sick or sing in an unhealthy way and lose your range (as many do because it's "impressive"). It's totally possible to sing high in an impressive way correctly, many natural talents just don't take the time to learn how.
    Hope this helps!

    OKAY AND THIS IS MY OPINION. IT SEEMS THE HOUSE SOUND DROPPED OUT.BUT THE BROADCAST LEVEL STAYED THE SAME . I mean she's totally singing live. And she continued to sing she May not have realized her mic had cut out becauae she could still here herself in her inner ears. Becauae if she was lip syncing then we would have heard the vocal track. We heard silence as mariah continued to sing unaware her mic blanket out. THE SOUND TEAM NEW AND CUT IT BACK ON. Everyone wants to hate on Mariah. But what many of your beyonce illuminati consuming mindless drones fail to realize is Mariah Carey pioneered what Beyonce is doing now. She was the first Pop singer to dip into hip hop and those of who are old enough to know remember they tore her ass up about it. Mariah Carey is a Fuckin legend shes the first q Women in music history to accomplish what she has THEY are even giving her the WMA ICON award. BEYONCE TIRED ASS HASN'T BEEN BESTOWED THAT HONOR. AND SHE BEEN IN THE GAME SINCE 90. And is about to drop album #14. Whats Beyonce on number 5. And its sum ILLUMINATI mind altering garbage. Got lil girls talkin about drinking watermelon and pull in up partition…someone's morals are skew. And that is what we call a roll model….Y'all gags here that…thats the sound of Dr king turning over in his grave #yallbettergetyourlivestogether
    The fact than any of u can throw beyonce name in the mix with mariah Carey's is basic

    Poor MiMoo. Maybe she should spend less time trying to be 20 while dressing like a baby doll/sex pot and take better care of her voice. The voice can go and change with time and age, but no need to keep trying to make it look like you still have it when you don't. Neither the voice nor the body is the same Mariah, and that's ok. It's called age, but stop trying to pull a fast one on your fans. They know. We ALL know. It just ain't working ma'am. You had a good run and made LOTS of money. Just let it go. Or at least stay away from the live performances. Just do studio stuff where they can doctor the voice and make it sound like it was back in the day.

    Mariah didn't CAUGHT, she just DID it, like she does ALL her LIP SYNC performances that she's done since 199freakin7. She ain't no start up so I don't see why people think she needs to sing at the opening of an envelope. Whoever started this "singers lipsyncing controversy" nonsense circa Beyonce was clearly bored, b/c this has been going on for ages, and Mariah is the queen. Personally, as long as it's not a concert I've paid for, I DON'T CARE.

    She always lips the ending of her songs! She did it through The Emancipation of Mimi era too.

    Re: Meghan – No. By singing a certain way you cannot permanently damage your voice. She most likely was not waiting on background vocals as she never has had background sing the highest parts of always be my baby for her. What are you talking about? just because you are a self proclaimed vocal coach doesn't mean you are a good one, nor does it mean that you know what you're talking about.

    this the same idiot that attacked Lady GaGA Perez is nothing but a bully and he been for years. he tell everybody he changed and he against bully but that what his blog is basic about . He needs to look at his self in the mirror and know that he is not Perfect. He needs to get Several Seats. Mariah Carey has talent.. Perez you dont you are like Kim K you got to have shit to talk about to stay famous. I aint wasting no more of my life on this wanna be celebrity. Mariah Carey doing something good to be worth 500 Million Dollars.

    All that booze ate at her vocal chords. That bitch ass delusional attitude does not help. This whore drinks all day into the night everyday and she getting more and more SLOPPY!

    Hey, to whoever the author of this article.

    Before you call out Mariah in this rant of yours. You must know that what she did is a standard practice to some singers specially if they dont feel like they are in the best of their voice. Even in broadway tour shows, female opera singers often lip the most difficult parts of their ensemble because if they didnt, it would cause strain in their vocal chords. Mariah was just being smart because she knows the current condition of her voice.

    Why is it that when Celine Dion, Beyonce, Cher, or even Rihanna does the same, you insentitive writers dont even bat an eyelash. Why make such a big deal when Mariah does it?
