Mariah Joins Oprah’s Music Club

Maura / September 18, 2009

Her fans radiant and her hair back to its “Vision Of Love”-era curl tangle, Mariah Carey brought her desperation-borne cover of Foreigner’s “I Want To Know What Love Is” to Oprah’s makeshift set in Central Park today. While she certainly did hit some old-school Mariah high notes while on stage, the performance further magnified the reworking’s odd pacing. (Oh well, at least her fan-read intro did include data points about her numerous No. 1s. Because you can’t argue with data! Except when it paints Mimi in a bad light!) Clip after the jump.

Anyway, expect the usual gaggle of Mariah fans to flood this post’s comment section and tell me that I’m wrong for hearing anything bad at all. Yay!
