Mariah Carey Apologizes for Memorial Performance

Mariah Carey doesn’t think she was completely on her game yesterday during her performance at Michael Jackson’s memorial service. She sang “I’ll Be There” with Trey Lorenz, which was a No.1 hit for the Jackson 5 in 1970.

But Mariah just wasn’t satisfied 100%, so she took to her Twitter page to tell fans how she felt.

She wrote: "Just recovering from the day. Still filled w/sadness as we listen to KJLH in LA (Stevie Wonder's radio station) paying tribute to MJ. Trying to sing today was basically impossible for me.

"I could barely keep myself from crying. I'm sorry that I wasn't able to pull it together and really do it right, but I was literally choked up when I saw him there in front of me.

One thing I know is, we will never really have to say goodbye to MJ. His legacy lives on through his music and the millions of people. He inspired with his timeless music. He will be forever in our hearts."

How did we know Mariah would do something like this? Who cares if she wasn’t completely perfect! It was more about the actual song being sung, and the event taking place. We highly doubt too many people are going to look back on yesterday and think about Mimi’s performance.
