When it comes to the legendary Mariah Carey we have a few expectations:

1. Stellar vocals (and that fluttery thing she does with her hand when she hits those whistle notes)

2. The usual diva attire (a fur coat with a glass of champagne)

3. Excellent lighting

This was obviously not Mariah’s most glamorous performance and the internet made sure she was aware, giving their critique via alleged rival Jennifer Lopez.
