After more over a year of avoiding the stage, Mariah Carey finally retured to the stage! The diva was among several major artists, including Mary J. Blige, Maroon 5 and Diddy, who performed at the multi-city ‘Plot Your Escape’ concert last evening and she was in fine form.
Carey performed six songs – ‘We Belong Together’, ‘Hero’, ‘It’s Like That’, ‘Obsessed’, ‘Shake it Off’ and ‘I’ll Be There’ – for the ‘Plot Your Escape’ patrons at Gotham Hall. However, only her rendition of ‘Shake it Off’ aired during the live stream of the concert and the rest will presumably air during ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ on March 3rd.
Watch Carey’s ‘Shake it Off’ performance below:
Obviously, ‘Shake it Off’ was not the best song selection for Carey to demonstrate the present condition of her voice. The staccato arrangement and the constant switches between registers gave her little room to really display her abilities.
Yet, Carey still delivered a good show and she looked amazing! Let’s wait for her performances of ‘I’ll Be There’, ‘Hero’ and ‘We Belong Together’. If Carey could handle those songs live then we would truly know if her legendary voice has returned.
