Everyone has an opinion on Mariah Carey’s disastrous New Year’s Eve performance, and if you’re a BreatheHeavy reader (you are!), an onslaught of coverage in the aftermath has engulfed the Internet (just in case you need catching up, here’s the Mariah Carey category on BH). The chatter has now made its way onto daytime television when it became one of the topics on The Real with special guest Mel B.

The Spice Girl witnessed the debauchery in-person, and had this to say about it: “I was in complete shock. I was like, ‘why did you let that happen?’ And this is Mariah who’s an amazing singer, an amazing performer. Maybe she doesn’t have that voice anymore.”

She adds: “She was having probably a rough day vocally and didn’t even want to attempt that when it actually came to singing live, because some of the track was pre-recorded, and some of it was left blank for her to sing live.”

Don’t worry though, she’s still a big fan.
