Mariah Screws Up, Lights Up

Earlier this morning, Mariah Carey took over Times Square in NYC to perform live on Good Morning America and was met with technical difficulties. At the start of her performance of her hit single Touch My Body, the backing track was miscued and it started playing before she was ready ... and well ... it didn't look too good for our dear Mimi:

The video must be watched in order to get the full, terribly embarrassing effect. The question becomes just how dead did the person who mispressed the button become? I wouldn't be surprised at all if Mimi ended up ripping the person's heart out with her bare hands. Touch my body, indeed. [Source]

At any rate, Mariah did look pretty damn good while she held herself together for her 3 GMA performances:

The news was much better for Mimi later on in the day ... at just after noon, Mariah was honored by a special lighting ceremony at the Empire State Building where the iconic structure was made to shine in lavender, pink and white (the color scheme of Mariah's new album) in honor of a "Great New Yorker" (according to the press release) and her #1 album E=MC2 ... and Extra TV was there to talk to Mimi at the event. Here are a few photos of Mimi at the ceremony:

Only "Extra's" AJ Calloway is with Mariah Carey on top of the Empire State Building as it shines pink and lavender lights in honor of the singing sensation. She admits, "I've been growing up in New York my whole life and I've never been up here ... It took this to get me here!" Carey tells Calloway that she truly appreciates New York City's landmark honor saying, "It's very overwhelming. It's really exciting. I feel very blessed. Very thankful to God for everything." Not only is Carey on top of the charts, but her amazingly fit body has been the talk of the town as well. Revealing her secret, she exclaims, "I've been dieting ... Patricia, my trainer, is very, very strong!" And as for her film, Tennessee, which is premiering at the Tribeca Film Festival, she says, "He [Aaron Woodley, director] wants people to see it and access it for themselves."

Despite the glitches earlier in the day, I think Mariah ended up having a pretty spectacular day ... which is apropos since she's been having a pretty spectacular week, month and year.
