I would love the Star live if she even tried doing it live :oops:
She does most of it live, and her live parts are imo more pleasant than the studio version. She really has no excuse to lip any of it though :evil:
I guess a Mariah Carey song is extremely hard to sing, even for Mariah herself. :lol:

The star is one of the easiest to sing power ballads ever recorded. She has 0 excuse.
F*ck off and lose my number.

Radio increase over the last week rather low, especially in comparison to streaming and download increases.

"Christmas" crowns Billboard's Holiday 100 chart for a 27th total week, dating to the chart's 2011 launch; no other song has led for more than two weeks. It reigns with 26 million in all-format radio airplay audience (up 11 percent), 16.5 million U.S. streams (up 60 percent) and 16,000 downloads sold (up 41 percent), according to Nielsen Music. It ranks at No. 16 on Streaming Songs, No. 19 on Digital Song Sales and No. 47 on Radio Songs.

Digital sales total to 27,000 over the last two weeks.

I've long said Mariah needs an entire team/company of managers to successfully handle her many ventures. Obviously, she'd still need a point person to handle day to day functions to get her from A to B, but she has broadened her brand sufficiently to require managers who are well versed in her different ventures.

Hopefully, there will be a careful tying together of everything so that there's a single narrative and strategy over all.

I am still more interested, though, in Mariah getting her label off the ground. I know this wont be for a while but it's going to be refreshing, for me, to see MC writing/producing for other talents again.

Sooooooo. I'm going to see Mariah on Sunday in Manchester. Does anyone know what time the show is likely to end? I'm trying to organise trains back to Liverpool, but the last train is just after 11pm. I reeeally do not want to miss hearing my all time favorite Christmas song live ( one of the many reasons I bought tickets haha) equally I don't want to be stranded in Manchester.

Cheers. Absolute nightmare though. the buses ( national express) seem to finish earlier than the trains. I have work the next morning so a stopover is out of the question haha. I'll probably have to drive and not drink ;(( thanks for your reply

They’ve just changed the weather forecast to heavy snow on Sunday. Hopefully it won’t be any disruption to traveling to or out of manchester, that’s what I’m really worried about as UK trains gets easily affected by any weather changes.

I think my only option will be to drive and to crawl home in the snow. Cancelling isn't an option, unless Mariah cancels. I couldn't live with myself :)

She's doing it mostly live tho, and the live parts sound better than the studio vocals lol

GRYMG should be the opening song with the choir. She has removed C(BPCH) from the setlist so she has to replace it with another track, the show is too short according to lambs that have attended so I think cutting songs isn't cute.
