I agree, the only thing that remains amazing is the E5. I still prefer the smoothness of My All in Cardiff the best. If she hit the E5 in Cardiff, It would've been the best performance since 1998 for sure!

Not understanding the need for a locked thread, then a new one etc when bans could've been handed out in an hour....

Anyway, fresh start and what not.

This is literally what I said Mariah's social team should be doing a couple days ago!. Group pictures that are cute and give a BTS look. It's so much better than the boring posts for the SSFT.

It is just a joke :lol: but frankly I kinda dislike him/her. I feel he/she behaves like a dictator of UKMIX.
Give us back the old thread!!
I still don't understand what making a new thread is going to do when the same users are going to come on it anyways :-?
Hopefully those same users will get the message that rule breaking has consequences. The old thread needed a lot of tidying up so it was just easier to create a new and improved thread.

If this new thread turns into a mess, it'll be closed too. So just make sure y'all play nice and keep it clean :)

The quality of the audio can make a huge difference, that's why everyone says that she sounds different (miles better) when they're listening her there in person. Periscope's audios are usually bad, don't know if it has something to do with the app per se.

Well technically Cardiff was the best (very polished), but I prefer her tone in Cologne and this one in Cape Town is special 'cause that E5, I know it's only an E5 belt and that she hit the same note multiple times in every concert in other songs, but keep in mind that this is her first attempt since '97 and she even struggled with that part back then... these little things are very important for me (like the E5/F5 in ABMB) 'cause after so many years she's actually trying and doing things that I thought she would never do again :D

Judging from the "exclusive" clips we've seen the audio quality is bad. I hope the quality is as good as the TAOM DVD but that's just a dream bc that DVD was tweaked for Blu Ray.

It's a shame that she didn't post these beautiful new pics in any of her social media.
I like them 'cause they show how close she is with her crew. Especially with Kris and Trey ❤ They've been together for so long! You can tell they really love her.

I hope the B collab is real, and that way we all unite and make
it #1 19th number one and another number one for b, it would be exciting and especially a video with MC looking amazing

TBH that's what I'm waiting for a beautiful video! :lol: Interestingly enough Beyoncé hasn't had a number one hit since 2009!

Imma have to disagree. She sounds better here

I honestly prefer this performance over Cardiff because she sounds less shrill and her tone is richer. She was almost going to do the "coz I CAN'T (E5) go on" belt (not that it matters) 8-) Cardiff is my second fave though.

I still think she sounds good!

Sometimes it's confusing because the lambs change the pitch a step or half step up before uploading and these are the same ones chastising her for doing the same on an album track or two, and I just truly don't get it

She has always performed "My All" a step lower, even in 1997

Btw just to add to the discussion from before, it's clear to me that her voice in Feb 2016 was actually in a much healthier place than the July leg last year. I'm talking about the actual physical condition of her cords. Her vocal cords were able to handle the physical pressure of chesty grunts and upper belts in comparison to July last year. But she did sound better more consistently from July 18th onwards, as she was extra careful.

I actually think she might've started recording some of the new vocals for the SSFT during the Feb 2016 leg.

I haven't really seen performances being pitched up by many people. I've only seen a few in compilation videos. The one posted above isn't pitched up at all.

Fantasy Intro, Cape Town.

Nice belts from 0:50 onward.
1:10 - 1:15 was so creative, loved the whole run, very musical.

The opera singers F6 actually sounds like whistle. Most female opera singers eventually cross into the whistle register eventually the higher up they go anyway :D

I really hope that the Mariah/ Bey collab is true. That Instagram account posted a bunch of things, and now it seems kind of fake, but I'm hoping it's real. It got a lot of people buzzing, and Mariah did say "you'll be seeing another single at least very soon." Hopefully this is what she was referring to!
