Unfortunately for the beautiful star, Mariah Carey was unable to deliver the performance she wanted during her appearance at the Rockefeller Center, on Wednesday night. Mariah opened the live NBC telecast of the annual Christmas tree lighting.
The star performed her widely famous sing All I Want for Christmas is You. However, she seemed to have serious issues in delivering the expected performance. So, Mariah seemed to struggle during the entire live performance. The 44 year old star seemed unable to hit certain notes and appeared to be avoiding others. She seemed out of breath and actually this was shocking, Mariah being well known for her great singing skills.
And that was not all. Mariah actually disappointed her fans, letting everyone wait for her no less than three hours. The star arrived later than scheduled at a pre-tape for the performance and this made hundreds of fans wait in the rain. It has been reported that the popular actress was actually on the phone with her lawyer, establishing the last details of her divorce from Nick Cannon. In fact, it has been a difficult year for the star, who is going through a divorce from her famous husband.
Mariah took to Twitter to apologize for the fact that she did not show up for the pre-tape. “Last night’s situation was beyond my control, I apologize to all that showed up, you know that I would never want to disappoint you,” the beautiful star said. “You’ve kept me here, in your hearts, and I keep you mine always. We are #Iambily! #ThereFor Me. I will be opening tonight’s live show in Rockefeller center with ‘All I want For Christmas Is You’!!!” she added.
Well, Mariah was not the only star who delivered a performance for the event. LeAnn Rimes, Lady Gaga, but also Tony Bennet and Cyndi Lauper took the stage. The Christmas season is here and everyone enjoyed the moment when the tree at the Rockefeller Center was lighted. The event is always beautiful to enjoy and this year made no exception from this point of view.
