    The Sydney Morning Herald: Seven lines up superstar Mariah Carey for The Voice


    The Seven Network is courting US superstar Mariah Carey to be a judge on talent contest The Voice.

    The network recently stole the show from under the nose of rival network Nine (owner of this masthead), which had broadcast it for nine seasons. Seven has promised to "supercharge" the format for its 2021 season, and installed Sonia Kruger as its host.

    Nine spent about $40 million on its version of The Voice, with a fair whack of cash deposited in the pockets of judges Deltra Goodrem, Guy Sebastian and overseas imports Boy George and Kelly Rowland.

    Nine was happy to throw shade at its rival for poaching the format. "Unfortunately due to the age of the show and declining demographic profile, The Voice had become by far the poorest financial performer on our slate. We wish Seven well in their quest to revive yet another Nine show," a Nine spokesman said.

    The fate of the judges is uncertain. But CBD has learnt that Seven West Media chief executive James Warburton, who plans to cut the program's costs to about $20 million, is wrapping up negotiations with Carey to appear in the series next year. If successful the signing will be a formidable statement of competitive intent against his free-to-air TV rivals.

    During her career, Carey has sold more than 200 million records globally.

    The 50-year-old singer is also the former fiancee of Crown Casino billionaire James Packer. The couple split in 2016 after fellow mogul Kerry Stokes, owner of the Seven Network, stalled the wedding by grounding Packer’s jet in Israel so the younger billionaire could deal with his personal issues.

    Packer told The Sydney Morning Herald on the weekend: "I wish her well."

    Carey is about to hit a publicity wave, with her new memoir, The Meaning Of Mariah Carey, published on Tuesday.

    She is no stranger to talent contests, having judged American Idol on the US Fox network in 2013, which led to a headline generating feud with younger singer Nicky Minaj.

    Seven declined to comment to CBD on Monday.

    No doubt Warburton will be hoping for a relaxed quarantine system by the time the series starts to film next year. CBD can’t imagine a fortnight’s quarantine at the Ibis Darling Harbour will meet Carey’s exacting standards.

    and now alt-rock/grunge mariah (not just a track or two but a full blown album complete with videos)

    my mind is blown

    no one’s fave could ever.
    please stop comparing any wannabe divas with her anymore. she lives in a different universe.
    She is on another level entirely. It makes me sick when people don't respect her musical talent and dismiss her as "just a singer who can't even sing anymore." These ignorant people just do not know and don't want to know.

    So much sexism, racism, ageism in the music industry -- both from the people who control how music is made and consumed and from the audiences who consume it.

    I have the album. Wow, the first song Joe is so good.
    Violent is great too.

    I can definitely hear Mariah's voice here and there but I personally do not hear her extensively. Unless of course they disguised her voice. There is one song and the tone of the adlibs reminds me of that Hey Jude performance when Paul told her to sing. Same tone.

    Interesting - Clarissa has also worked with Debbie Gibson (on backing vocals) - the Debbie/Mariah connections deepen.

    WTH. Never heard this before. It's actually catchy. She did the weirdest head voice/falsetto at 3:19 though...it's almost like an Xfactor Ken Lee type contestant trying to sing a whistle note ...

    The Chick album is a mind blowing revelation, it must have been irritating for her to see her peers (Janet/Madonna) be praised for reinventing themselves musically at that time when she had to do things secretly.

    also the Pinko campaign has always been one of my favourite shoots.

    I wish more top level fashion companies would pick her up and do more compaigns back in the day. She's obviously done stuff for Versace (which suits her diva image, gam, over the top)....and Louis Vuitton (for the Say Somthin video).....though they're more her shopping at them rather than doing proper campaign.

    Oh, I wanna hear the entire Chick album! Just from that album sampler, these two girls were serious about their craft. I have a newfound level of respect for Clarissa, having never revealed any of this.
    Malibu, Freak and Violent sound FANTASTIC. I used to listen to punk and go to punk shows throughout LA back in high school, and this album fits perfectly into that alt-rock genre. Love it, and hope it goes on streaming sites!
