Billboard chart dated 7th January 2023 (101,982) by Edward from USA
(Thursday 29 December 2022; 12:06)
Nobody's conspiring against Marian [sic]. The charts reflects what people are listening to. Should Brenda hit #1 next week, good for her. The rules apply to everyone.

Let's see about that. December 24 and 25, in which Marian broke records count towards next week. Marian still has a huge chance to remain at the top. If not, three weeks is good enough for me.

AIWFCIY locks another week at #1 (101,970) by Edward from USA
(Tuesday 27 December 2022; 17:27)
Mariah locks her second week at #1 this year for a total of 11 weeks. Brenda was close, but with Mariah breaking the record of most streamed song ever on Spotify, Brenda didn't stand a chance. Actually, this is the 3rd week at number one for this year.

The cringe of it all (101,955) by Edward from USA
(Saturday 24 December 2022; 21:50)
The thing about AIWFCIY is that the lyrics are as important as the music. It is true that Mariah doesn't read or understand music like that, but it is not less true that she wrote the lyrics all by herself. I think she should've given him 30%, but that wasn't the case. I think Mariah was too generous and inexperienced, she was only 23 at the time.

Miss you most at Christmas time (101,953) by Edward from USA
(Saturday 24 December 2022; 17:35)
It is a great song indeed. I loved it since the first time I listened to it. It is just one of those songs that's great lyrically and musically. On top of that, Mariah's yearning makes it perfect. The three original songs on that album are simply great. I know many here don't like "Jesus Born on This Day" but I do love it. Merry Christmas Stacey.

Article: Mariah Carey scores milestone 10th week at No. 1 (101,945) by Edward from USA
(Friday 23 December 2022; 16:11)
Since Billboard calculates the last week of the year as two, should she remain at #1 next week, that's an extra week at #1. AIWFCIY would be sitting nicely with a whopping 12 weeks total till next Christmas season. If things continue this way, 2025 will be the year in which Lil Nas X will have to pass the torch back to the queen.

What a feast. If AIWFCIY keeps topping the charts for at least 3 weeks for the next 3 years, she'll by herself this time would reclaim the title as "The Artist with the Longest #1 Song" on "Billboard Hot 100" by 2025 with 20 weeks at the top. The OSD record kind of hurt when it was broken.

So what (101,872) by Edward from USA
(Saturday 17 December 2022; 14:29)
These supposed fans love it. They are just like Trey, Mary Ann and the rest. They looked at how horrible she did and clap happily in the background. I hate to see her get ridiculed. Marian owns Christmas, she should be ready to kill a few shows once a year. If she isn't then it is OK, but don't tarnish your wonderful legacy with mediocre performance for the sake of money. If you're not in a good place vocally, just don't do those shows until you are in a good place, period.

Why is everyone surprised? (101,855) by Edward from USA
(Friday 16 December 2022; 16:36)
I was in the audience when she recorded her session of the BET Network Special in which she sung "With You I'm Born Again" with John Legend. I had to stand in line for 3 hours, but it was worth the wait because she was simply great. She just needs to deal with the problem and she'll be fine. She needs real lambs and real friends to tell her she's just further damaging her voice. The cat has been out the bag for years now, she should've been doing something about it. She knew she would be defrosted for these few shows, she should've been better prepared. Lose the weight and avoid the effing restricting corsets, get a vocal coach and get the voice in shape. She might sound good on a clip on Instagram, but the problem has always been about consistency with her.

MIAM has some great vocal moments. The whistles on Dedicated are some of her best, in my opinion. "The Art of Letting Go" is the last song I remember she sung in full voice, the climax is just great. Sadly four years later her range had reduced by almost halve on "Caution", and four years after there's almost nothing left. Even though I was quite impressed with her vocals on "The Roof Re-imagined".

I'm pretty sure Trey, Tanaka and Mary Ann would say the same. The evidence says otherwise though. Many attendees are commenting that while it was fun, they noticed the struggle on the live parts. Of course as good lambs many are blaming it on the shows in Toronto. Sadly, she won't do anything about until another very publicized new year disaster happen again. If she were to go on tour with her newly recovered pandemic voice with two year rest, she would not make it past 3 shows and she knows it. Don't expect her going on tour after this. At this point it seems she's damaging her voice further trying to sing. I hope she doesn't listen to the sycophants and ass kissers and take care of her instrument, an instrument that has been considered national treasure.

Here's hoping for AIWFCIY to stay at #1 for at least 4 weeks.

Who was actually there? Toronto shows (101,819) by Edward from USA
(Tuesday 13 December 2022; 17:29)
I couldn't have said better. I've gone to the Christmas shows three times at Beacon Theater, and with the euphoria and excitement, one don't really notice the miming or even the struggle unless it is really bad. At Beacon Theater she was way better than this, but guess what? When I got home, and looked at the videos my friend and I recorded from third row, I could notice everything, the good and the not so good, but at that point, the not so good was very decent. She wasn't sing-shouting or singing as if she was in pain or constipated. It's delusional to think that cellphone recordings are altering anything to make her look bad. Video and sound from camcorders can't compete with the high quality of cellphones recordings nowadays, but if you watch that awful recording of Mariah on the Music Box Tour, you would notice that while the image was bad, Mariah sounded amazing, so there goes that theory. If anything, fan's recordings with cellphones have just come to expose her, that's all. Nobody is expecting her to sound like in the 1990's, but she should have some respect for the people who are paying their hard earned money to go see a decent show and there's nothing wrong about it. Mariah doesn't owe us anything, but we don't owe her anything either. It's only fair to demand a decent performance for a decent amount of money. Being delusional is looking at those recordings and think that the recordings are so distorted that they make her sound as if were struggling or plain flat.

Who the [censored] are you to tell him to stop following her? Anybody with decent hearing can tell she's struggling, but really struggling. She's struggling even with songs that are not vocally demanding. "Christmas Time Is in the Air" is a prime example of that.

Because vaccinated or not Covid-19 is still a thing. Cases are rising and it is not a good time to bargain with one's health. My friend was healthy, vaccinated, double boosted and died at just 32 from it.

Well, no this early, but I'm pretty sure she'll be #1 next week. I predict she'll be at the top for at least 5 weeks.

There's nothing sarcastic about your post and you know it. You're backpedaling because you realized how ridiculous her attempt at monopolizing Christmas was. It's actually arrogant on her part to even think she could sequester Christmas in perpetuity. I hope she doesn't go for Hanukkah next year.

You took the words out my mouth. It is in fact ridiculous to try to monopolize anything Christmas' related. It's good we have a legal system in place to avoid stuff like that.

Chart question (101,618) by Edward from USA
(Thursday 10 November 2022; 02:15)
Remember that during the 90's they were heavily invested in getting people to buying albums, because singles would usually cannibalize album sales, that's why "Can't Let Go" never made to #1. The rules were also different then. Many songs were #1 on airplay, but since they weren't commercially available as physical singles, they were not allowed to chart. AIWFCIY has benefited from such the rule change for four years now, and it will eventually claim the record as the song with moths weeks at #1 in about three more years if it keeps scoring at least 3 weeks at #1 per year.
