Mariah Carey kicked off her Elusive Chanteuse Show tour in Japan on Saturday, but it wasn't quite the start she was probably hoping for. Amid a few technical difficulties with her microphone, Carey's powerhouse voice also seemed to fail her.
Videos surfaced on YouTube following the 23-song set (um, 23-song set?!?!) in which superstar's iconic voice (GASP) cracked and, at times, failed to hit her signature high notes.
No matter: Mariah is shaking off the haters by posting photos from the sold-out show on her official website and re-tweeting some of her more vocal fans.
What do you think: Was Mariah just a little rusty, or should we be worried about her voice?
