Christina Aguilera appeared on ‘Late Night with Jimmy Fallon’ exactly one month ago and embarrassed herself by croaking the high notes of ‘Your Body’. Yet, her fans defended her by stating that other divas, including Mariah Carey, wouldn’t perform any better. Well, we finally got our answer last night!
Emerging from stage left, Carey joined The Roots for a Calypso-styled rendition of her Holiday anthem, ‘All I Want for Christmas is You’. Unlike Aguilera, however, the top songbird soared through the arrangement and took her fans back to her 1990s glory days as she belted the still infectious tune.
Watch Carey’s stunning performance on ‘Jimmy Fallon’ below:
Now that is how a skilled vocalist projects her voice while remaining in time with the music! Indeed, Carey didn’t scream from her throat and she used her range like a true professional. What’s even more significant about this showing is that we’ve finally gotten the chance to hear her voice in its raw form without the assistance of a microphone or a backtrack.
Yes, ladies and gentlemen, it’s safe to say that Carey’s instrument has regained much of its strength and flexibility, and that the real issue affecting her is the consistency of her performances. She definitely isn’t flawless during every show but when she is on point, she is on point!
