Mariah Carey is currently in the middle of her “Caution World Tour” and is killing it every night.
Over the past weekend, the “We Belong Together” hitmaker began her stint of shows at the iconic Royal Albert Hall in London. Tonight will be the last of three shows at the venue.
The tour is in promotion of her 15th studio album, Caution, which reached the top five on the U.S. music charts while also receiving critical acclaim.
For Mariah’s setlist, she is performing a mix of songs from the new album as well as fan favorites from her back catalog. From classics like “Without You” to more recent chart-toppers like “Touch My Body,” there is a song for every generation of Mariah fan. Carey also had a special surprise for her London audience, as she performed “Endless Love,” her duet with Luther Vandross, for the first time since 1994, according to Setlist.fm.
Over the years Carey has had a few negative periods, a common occurrence for an artist whose career has spanned decades. As she has aged, speculation regarding whether she still has the vocals she was originally known for has arisen. But if her recent performances are anything to go by, Mariah has proven them wrong and effortlessly belts out those ballads like its 1995 all over again.
Fans who paid to see the legend in London over the weekend were left awed after her mindblowing concert.

2019 HAS PEAKED.
If there was any need to question whether Mariah can hit those whistle notes, the fans in attendance provided the proof.
After her final show in London, Carey will continue the European leg and will visit the likes of Paris, Barcelona, and Amsterdam.
Recently, Mariah was awarded the Icon Award at the 2019 Billboard Music Awards, as previously covered by The Inquisitr. During the ceremony, she performed a medley of her hits and was presented the award by another powerhouse vocalist, Jennifer Hudson. During Mariah’s speech, the “Anytime You Need A Friend” songstress tossed the tissue she wiped her face with on stage and became another meme. Billboard made a gif out of the tissue situation and posted it to their Twitter account.
“Getting rid of negative people in your life like,” they wrote in a funny manner.
Carey was quick to see the tweet and responded in the best way possible, joining them on the joke.
“Toss the tissue is the new drop the mic,” she quote-tweeted.
From being an all around fun person, and an amazing performer and vocalist, Carey clearly has it all.
