Christmas in Rockefeller Center With A Mariah Carey and Justin Bieber Duet

      NBC’s annual salute to a big tree, a tall tower, and itself was its usual mixed bag.  Neil Diamond (never my favorite, though beloved by others) was in great voice, moved well, and struck the right contrast between traditional holiday pop singing and a more contemporary, jazzed rhythm.  Tony Bennett, who seems to be everywhere this season to sell his album, delivered the goods.  Carole King, a great songwriter, is past her prime vocally and was off-key.  I also don’t understand how Jewish performers can’t at least add “Happy Hanukkah” after getting all tearful and joyful over Christmas.  

Mariah Carey and Justin Bieber
The spectacular point had to be Justin Bieber singing a duet with his mother – I mean, Mariah Carey.  Yes, she has a hot body and she had to pay
a heckuva lot for it, I’m sure, but can’t she just deal with the fact that she was 21 twenty years ago?  The duet was more about her cleavage and Justin’s teeth and shopping at Macy’s than “All I Want for Christmas is You.”  Mariah looked like she was going to either hump the wall or hoped Justin would hump her on the wall and, after getting nowhere with him in the sleigh by the cosmetics department (they both wore the same lipstick), which just goes to show you that he’s the sensible one, Mommy finally gave up waiting to kiss Santa Claus and felt herself up instead.

I was a little embarrassed for Mariah.  You can view the video here and see what you think.

It wouldn't have made for a very interesting story. Besides, I was entertained...and amused!
