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".

Money ($*/...) and starving children (45,602) by Shelly from United States

Mimi L, I like your idea. Jet plane would probably be better because that's what it says in the song. She does look gorgeous in those pics. She looks like she's a really healthy 30 year old, her skin. I loved the shoes and that her toned legs reemerged. I'm so glad she didn't really say that about the starving children. I had heard that before but ... read more

And I dream the impossible dream (45,601) by Bill from UK

I never thought this was a reference to "The Impossible" from MOAIA, but more likely a reference to the very popular song if the same name, reading the lyrics they seem very Mariah-y about strife and fighting for what you know is right, even if it is to your detriment. I love the song, and it's on my wish list for Mariah to cover (and has been for ... read more
