We curated this list in celebration of Mariah Carey's '#1 To Infinity' compilation.

It’s against my religion to write anything shady about Mariah Carey, so I’m just going to stick with the facts. Mimi reunited with Busta Rhymes at Hot 97’s Hot For The Holiday’s concert over the weekend to perform 2003 smash “I Know What You Want.” The Lamb Whisperer looked exquisite in a black leather ensemble — proving that time has largely stood still for her over the past 12 years. If only it had been as kind to those holy vocal chords.

However, the 45-year-old has been sounding flawless of late. Perhaps she is still a little under the weather from that flu? Or maybe there were audio issues? (I’m clutching at straws and open to all conspiracy theories!) Busta didn’t have a particularly great day either, plodding through the performance with minimal energy and enthusiasm. Happily, Christmas is just around the corner and we all know the festive season has the same effect on Mimi as Spinach does on Popeye. Watch up top.

Was this Mimi’s worst performance? Let us know below, or by hitting us up on Facebook and Twitter!
