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 Marquise from USA|
Mariah Carey has said numerous times that she won't stop making music because it's her passion It's like a part of her, it helps her get away and get through pain any many other things. I can't see Mariah not making more music, she was born into music. It's been with her all her life, it's something very close to her, especially songwriting. PS. I'... read more

||Vocal rest (42,714)
by Joyce from USA|
I just hope she doesn't sound like she just woke up as in the last song released. I think all that vocal bed rest took a toll. It's like a marathon runner on couch rest. It's true we are more flexible in our youth but as we age, to stay in shape, muscles require exercise, warm-ups and practice to remain in the sport and signing definitely is a spor... read more
