Put some respect on her name.

Never doubt Mariah again.

The Internet should know by now not to write Mariah off because she just proved her talents (again) with her first live performance post-New Years.

The legendary diva gave a pitch-perfect live debut of her new single “I Don’t” on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night (Feb 15).

With featured rapper YG by her side, Mimi actually sounded better singing the track live, giving the emotional lyrics a much-needed ‘oomph.’

“I Don’t” is undoubtedly one of Carey’s weakest singles, and YG’s awful verse only makes matters worse, but even then it’s not a bad song. With a different chorus, it could ‘go off’, as they say.

What’s sad is that not even a quarter of the people laughing at the NYE mishap won’t give this a chance. I’m sure Mariah is unbothered with her new toy boy and millions in the bank.

Watch the performance below.
