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".

It was lol worthy and could... read more

What in the hell did I just watch? The Fantasy lipsyncing was a complete mess. The sloppy outfits that I've seen from the Jamaica concert look like someone made them while blindfolded. Come on MC. Please no more mess before the residency.

I love Mariah to death but she really needs to start wearing more better and appropriate attire, because what she wore in Jamica was terrible. She looked phenomenal on "Ellen". I don't understand. Anyways, I'm glad she's going back with Sony. I see something big happening this year.
