We already heard the leaked recording of Mariah Carey singing You're Mine (Eternal) at the 2014 BET Honours after some cheeky chappy uploaded the audio straight after the ceremony was taped. Well yesterday finally saw the show televised, giving us the opportunity to watch Mariah belt out the ballad for the first time ever.
Not having had the luxury of seeing Mariah's actions/ mannerisms while singing, or even having heard the song prior to the leak, I initially thought Mimi sounded live when I heard the audio. However, watching the accompanying visuals, the whole thing looks lipped- and almost comically so.
Now, I'm not sure if that's down to the editing, or if they went in and dubbed bits, but it looked SOOO lipped. The oddest thing about it was how consistent the voice remained throughout, despite the microphone being at different distances from the Diva's mouth. Along with Mariah's tell (hamming up a performance), I couldn't help but come to the conclusion that Mimi was lipping to a pre-recorded track.
Anyone hoping this showing would be the one that reignited interest in the flagging song, prepare yourself for disappointment.
