Mariah Carey performs at the Macy’s Parade – and the internet’s reaction is hilarious

Self-proclaimed “Queen of Christmas” Mariah Carey performed at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade on Thursday, and the internet is having a field day with her show.

Wearing a massive pink dress with an umbrella, Mariah sang her iconic tune “All I Want for Christmas” while flanked by dancers.

As usual, Mariah stood still during her performance and did not join in the dancing.

Sports journalist Ian Hest wrote: “Mariah Carey is making millions right now just to stand there with her umbrella and frankly I’m not mad. Mad respect.”

“I love the lack of energy Mariah Carey brings to her performances. It’s the one thing we can all count on,” Twitter user Nick Russo said.

“Mariah Carey gets paid to just stand there at the Thanksgiving parade and not even pretend to actually sing the backing track lmfao queen behavior,” another person tweeted.

Other users joked that the chart-topping pop star was coming “out of hibernation” and “thawed” just in time for Christmas.

Many made fun of Mariah for lip-syncing her performance, but her fans pointed to a John Legend tweet from 2018 in rejection.

“Fun fact. We all have to lip-sync at this parade because the floats don’t have the capacity to handle the sound demands of a live performance. Hope you all enjoyed it anyway. Know that if you come to my shows, the vocals are 100 % live!” he said at the time after taking heat for the same.

“There is no way not a single artist is performing live at this parade, but people are mad at Mariah for it. Are you okay???” another Twitter user said in her defense.
