Mariah Carey Bombs During Sold Out Australian Tour [Details]

Pop star Mariah Carey received harsh reviews after wrapping up her Australian tour over the weekend.
Carey traveled to Australia after Christmas to ring in the New Year with three shows in Gold Coast, Sydney and Melbourne. But Carey’s tour got off to a rocky start. After Carey walked onstage late the first night, she was forced to stop the show midway to fix a few technical problems.
The American Idol judge’s second show in Sydney also failed to win over critics. They thought she spent too much time off stage. Carey’s final show in Melbourne on Saturday night was better, but many fans thought the set list was too short.
Rachel Olding of the Brisbane Times wrote:
“The diva has turned into a downer… But Mariah has become a caricature of herself – and not in a lovable Dolly Parton kind of way… Mariah seemed too absorbed to give us much at all. She hobbled around the stage in heels, escorted by mystery males, touched her hair incessantly and disappeared backstage three times while back-up dancers and singers entertained a yawning crowd… “She flailed amid poorly refined production with awkward silences, unrehearsed lighting , uneven levels and a backdrop of graphics more suited to a 1998 Windows screensaver than a multi-million-dollar worldwide tour… And, to top it off, she didn’t even play the hits!”
Carey didn’t let the reviews ruined her time in Australia. She showed off her weight loss on a beach Down Under.
Regardless of the reviews and problems with the show, Carey seem enthused about coming back. She tweeted, “I love you Australia and already can’t wait to go back!!! Thank you Australia, I love you!!!”
