She will survive
Though Sunday night's Divas 2000: A Tribute To Diana Ross concert at the Theater at Madison
Square Garden in New York was indeed a tribute to the supremest of the Supremes, for Diana
Ross herself it was nothin' but a house party. The show featured some of the most talented
and well-known divas in the world: Mariah Carey, Donna Summer, Destiny's Child, Faith Hill,
Ru Paul and, of course, Diana Ross. Through it all, however, Ross was able to give the
proceedings an intimate, down-home feel.|
Mariah Carey, who was in fine voice (and fine form) despite a very recent bout with food
poisoning, opened the evening with a version of Ross' solo hit "Love Hangover," which morphed
into Carey's own "Heartbreaker" and included bits of disco classics "Doctor Love" and "Love
To Love You, Baby." In a perilously short silver dress, Carey looked like she could give
Tina Turner a run for her money in the "she's got legs and she knows how to use 'em"
department. And she's got a future in disco, too, should she ever feel like taking a break
from the hip-hop beats. Carey's got both the pipes and the attitude to pull off dance music
Mariah Carey, who came across more as a sweet and sexy homegirl than a fierce ruling diva,
reminisced about seeing Ross at her now-legendary 1983 Central Park concert. Carey was just
a girl then and recalled how Ross valiantly tried to keep the show rolling despite a downpour
of Noah's Ark proportions. The image of Ross trying to defy Mother Nature herself stuck with
Carey: The diva would not be dismissed.
Finally, in the ultimate diva duet, Ross was joined by Carey for "Baby Love" and "Stop! In
The Name Of Love," trademark hand gestures intact. For this vocal summit, they both wore
versions of the perilously short dress in which Carey opened the evening - and they both
The entire "diva-licious" crew, as Carey put it, returned for the grand finale: Ross' signature
tune, "Ain't No Mountain High Enough."

Album sales and number one albums are so relative. For instance, Sia sold 30,000 copies and she tops Billboard. Mariah sold more then that and lands a number 3. So, the question is, was Sia a hit because she topped the chart or was it a flop because she sold less?

Im with you. But I don't think Mariah's problem isn't promotion, we saw what happened to JLo. It's a problem with mentality. Today's music listeners are very impressive and brain washed young people that do know a Michael Jackson, a Chet Baker, a Etta James and believe some new acts are the bomb. I accept we must embrace progress and change but I a... read more
