#Beautiful could be a hit. Has anyone else been monitoring its activity on iTunes? It's been hovering from 19-24 for the past three weeks, and now it's finally up to 17. Mariah never gets UK hits, what a waste this is!

I heard it on the Radio once. I think it could be a hit soon. It's a shame Miguel recently made himself look like an ass though.

What's he said this time ?

I don't think mariah really needs nor wants a hit here to be honest .
She has the $$ and the backing of america.

I meant when he injured two fans when trying to jump between two stages.

She's leaving the UK promo until the album release it seems. It doesn't help that MIguel is really busy too.

Miguel recently supported Alicia Keys over here in N.Ireland - think he sang Beautiful.

I think it's an awesome song

Hmmm...I don't know.

Her performances have been truly awful lately, so I don't know if promotion would benefit the song or harm it. The promo she did in the US not only made the song stall (or rise insignificantly) on US iTunes, but it also discouraged radio from playing it.

Its still rising up billboard hot 100, i doubt it get top 5 but hopefully top 10. She should think bout releasing single number 2 to go along with the album launch.

Shame is she's not doing much promotion here.

Btw, how many concert tours has she ever done in the UK? I seem to remember her doing some "world" tours but not coming to the UK, which was odd, or just touring, say, Australia and Japan but nowhere else! Has she ever done a proper UK concert tour?

And then a swarm of fans would probably kick you in the face
(And no doubt a few angry 7ft bodyguards)

I don't think Mariah could cope with all this wind and rain. I'm sure she will be over once the sun arrives.

Mariah has never been a touring artist because she basically hates it but she has toured the UK many times, its just that her tours are always so short. Anyway this where shes toured in her career -

Music Box Tour (1994) - US Only

Daydream Tour (1996) - Asia, Europe and UK Only

Butterfly Tour (1998) - Asia, Australia Only

Rainbow Tour (2000) - World - US, UK, Europe, Asia, Australia

Charmbracelet Tour (2003) - World - US, UK, Europe, Asia, Middle East

Adventures Of MIMI Tour (2006) - US, Japan Only

Angel's Advocate Tour (2010) - US, South America, One or Two European Dates (The European and South American dates were about a year later because she got pregnant but are still counted as being part oft his tour according to Wiki)

Triumphant Tour (2013) - Australia Only

And I'm sure you've heard the rumours that she's planning a world tour for this/next year

So yeah..if you need a walking Mariah Encyclopaedia I'm here all night lol

She should have bagged herself a spot on The Voice.

I'd say it's already been a hit tbh. Not massive, but certainly a hit. I wasn't expecting it to go top 40, but it's been charting for weeks now, so I'm pleased at that.

Are they doing a remix for the song? Mariah has always been great with doing remixes. The song's airplay is starting to slow down in the US, so one could be useful.

It's a shame she doesn't come here more. Just been looking up the list of her tours and she actually only did a UK tour once, for Charmbracelet. I don't count Daydream and Rainbow as UK tours as she only did one concert in London.

I can't believe she didn't even come over here for her Butterfly, Mimi and Angels tours!!

Ah well, maybe one day she'll return!

I haven't seen her in concert but have seen her twice. Once when she switched on the Christmas lights at Westfields in London, which was awful with all the pushing, shoving and kicking by a bunch of yobs who turned up late and tried to get in front of us. The best time was when I was in the audience for the Paul O'Grady show when Mariah was a guest and when she performed Touch My Body. I was right at the front and it was great to see her so close up!

Completely agree. Amazing track - probably my favourite song by her in years. What a waste.

Is it really worth it for her to come to the UK for a couple days of promotion

That will make her sell what? 100 000-200 000 extra downloads

thats maybe 25000$ in her pocket for 2 days of work its just not worth her time
