Mel B threw in her two cents when she stopped by The Real on Tuesday, and questioned if the diva’s vocals were to blame!
The former Spice Girl, who was also in Times Square on December 31 to host NBC‘s New Year’s Eve with Carson Daly, told the panel she “couldn’t believe what I was actually seeing” when Carey stopped singing.
“As a performer, as somebody on TV, if something happens, you just keep going. Your first reaction is to not let silence go too long, so I was in complete shock. I was like, ‘Why did you let that happen?’ And this is Mariah, who’s an amazing singer and an amazing performer.”
The America’s Got Talent judge then got a little shady by speculating that the Elusive Chanteuse just may have not been able to hit the notes she used to belt out earlier in her career! She questioned:
“Maybe she doesn’t have that voice anymore├óΓé¼┬ª I hate to say it ├óΓé¼┬ª I think maybe she was having a rough day vocally and didn’t even want to attempt that when it actually came to singing live because some of the track was pre-recorded, all of the high notes, and some of it was just blank for her to sing live.”
That’s a scary statement to make, Scary!
Though we’re pretty sure we did hear some isolated high notes…
