All she wanted for Thanksgiving was to get through “All I Want for Christmas Is You.”
Dozens of social media users raked Mariah Carey over the coals following a performance of her hit holiday anthem during Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade Thursday morning, mocking the diva for allegedly delivering a carbon copy of her original 1994 rendition.
“No one is more thankful for anything today than Mariah Carey is for lip syncing,” tweeted user @chelseanachman.
“Yo Mariah Carey is doing a horrid job at lip syncing at the parade SOS 4 her,” added @maincommadev.
Mariah Carey waves from a float during the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade on Thursday.
“Amazing – Mariah Carey sounds just like she did in 1994! … #lipsync #originalrecording,” wrote @CLEvival.
Some acknowledged that the 45-year-old vocalist, who performed atop a float dressed in a figure-hugging red dress and white coat, appeared to be mouthing the song’s words — but were delighted just to watch her perform it.
“@MariahCarey looked STUNNING on her float, even with a recorded performance she’s magical!” said @missysheldrake.
I know Mariah Carey lip sung that song! It’s no way after all those flops she is singing live and sound that good. LMBO
