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".

Whitney and Celine are/were interpreters of songs and Mari... read more

I don't know if you even remember this but you once (end of last year?) out of nowhere practically threatened to have my head because of some affront I had supposedly committed against Diane Ernestine Earle Ross in my commentary. I never responded since I hadn't been posting about her and just assumed you had me mixed up with another poster. Come ... read more

Everybody is comparing voices but nobody is comparing arm choreography. Mariah's is way better. All classic moves, including the "wax on" and the "squeeze and shake vigorously imaginary object and then throw it to the side while running on stage" or the "petting of an imaginary elephant". It's all very theatrical and half the experience for me. Now... read more
