because her voice needs constant singing. her first 1-2 shows during a tour aren't as strong as the rest of the tour. She is to blame for it. As a professional artist she needs to train and use her voice EVERY single day to keep it strong. She must not drink alcohol. She must not inhale dry air or smoke of any kind.
A great TV performance may require 2 weeks of preparation for her today.. and I believe she is not willing to work THAT hard for a TV performance.
But the thing is, even with those shaky TV performances... she does have amazing concerts on her tours and that is what ppl will never accept nor mention bc it doesn't fit their narrative. And that's the worst thing.
I mean call the latest VoL performance good or bad.. but the fact that people claim she lipsynched the whole song (while it was the first time since 1998 that she sang a song completely live and without a backing track) shows a) how uneducated people have become and b) how deep-rooted the hatred towards her has grown.
I remember when she peformed HERO on X-Factor looking so stiff... and ppl bashed her for it, like loveguru is doing right now ... the thing is that she said on Barbara Walters that she had just suffered a miscarriage.... hindsight is 20/20.
The stiffness accusations never deal with context. How would you feel when the entire world called you a liar, when Whoopi said that there were NO technical errors on NYE and that the problem laid on Mariah 100%... (she would later address the fact that some artists had technical issues at the Grammys last sunday reversing her own reasoning of how there cannot be technical issues on big shows)...
I would stand like a statue trying to hit all the notes and not pass out bc the slightest inconsistency would have been used against her. Mariah is not allowed to stop a performance and say "let's start from scratch"... She tried that once at VH1's Save the Music and was crucified by the media...
She cannot like Sia address a horrible vocal moment live while singing, like sia did last year on GMA when her voice was shot and she couldn't sing her own songs. It was adorable to see all the support she got and how the audience tried to help her sing the song...
Mariah had the same issue in 1999 performing CTTA on Oprah i believe and was murdered by the press.
There is a double standard. The fact that she addressed it shows how afraid she must be when performing on TV.
