Many music fans applaud Mariah Carey for actually singing live at her concerts, but some fans in Japan might be wondering if she should try lip-syncing.
The 44-year-old singer played the first date of her ‘Elusive Chanteuse World Tour’ at the Makuhari Messe in Tokyo. But during her rendition of ‘Vision of Love’ – her debut single from 1990 – Carey’s voice cracked and she couldn’t hit her trademark high notes, reported TMZ online.
A video of her struggling on stage was posted on Instagram and resulted in a backlash on social media for the R&B legend – who has hit the road in support of her new album ‘Me. I Am Mariah … The Elusive Chanteuse’.
One Twitter user wrote, “Mariah Carey started her tour in Japan and it was awful. She couldn’t hit the high notes and appeared to forget her lyrics a few times.”
