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".

M thanks for the info. I wonder if they'll give any announcement prior to the video release or they'll just drop it and tweet about it. I hope they don't decide to release it after uploading her commentary on the videos of all her 18 #1's. Then it'll be too late and it will be like trying to revive a dead body that has been dead for weeks. Anyways ... read more (Thursday 28 May 2015; 11:59)

"The video should be coming tomorrow but everything with this video is been like taking longer than I can't even say or tell you so I'm hoping for tomorrow." - MC on "Fitzy & Wippa" (Nova 96.9) *Fingers crossed* for the Lambs. (Thursday 28 May 2015; 11:21)
