Mariah's "Without you" popular on talent searches
Mariah's remake of Badfinger's "Without you" has recently made rounds on several talent
searches all over the world, sang by some of the most promising young discoveries today.
A couple of years ago on American Idol Season 1, Kelly Clarkson, then a rising popular
contestant in the idol search, sang Mariah's version of "Without you" to the delight of
the judges, critics, and fans alike. Kelly later won the talent search.|
On December 2, X-Factor's (UK's answer to American Idol) Leona Lewis took the stage and
gave her own rendition of the song. Louis, one of the show's judges said of her
performance: "After that performance I think the UK has found itself the new Mariah Carey,
Celine Dion, something we haven't seen for a long time. You're going to be a big star."
Leona's voice has been repeatedly hailed as almost at par with Mariah's legendary pipes.
And to no surprise. Leona herself said Mariah is one of her influences.
In the Philippines, Pinoy Dream Academy's (local franchise of Star Academy) Irish is also
set to perform "Without you". Yesterday, during the 12th Expulsion Night, Yvan, another
PDA contestant, gave his rendition of Mariah's "Open arms".

by Edward from USA|

She made sure that her songs were so technically challenging that they were impossible to sing by anybody else, that's why most people who attempted at singing songs that seem easy like "My All", failed miserably. Jessica Sanchez, first runner up to Phillip ... read more

So seems like YME won't be promoted anymore by MC. She did her share of radio interviews but without major live performances not many people would know about it. It's sad, because I really enjoyed both versions of the song and thought it would at least be a top 10. I understand Mimi is busy with the album but I do hope she still releases an upbeat ... read more
