Mariah Carey f/ Miguel "Beautiful" Premiering This Week (Joseph Kahn, dir.)


Maybe Mariah hasn't been getting her respect on American Idol, but what better platform could there be to set up her comeback? The Diva will look to put the show to work for her this week, with new video "Beautiful" set for a premiere during Wednesday night's episode.

The video is directed by Joseph Kahn; Miguel is the featured guest. And based on the trailer for it, the video will live up to the song title.

Mariah Carey - Almost Home

Remember the days when every big Hollywood movie had a soundtrack and accompanying music videos? Mariah Carey and David LaChapelle sure do and this clip has all the classic hallmarks of the field — a gorgeously lit vocal performance, plenty of film footage and a sweeping crescendo. Mariah's performance is simple, which certainly works with a performer like her, but I couldn't help but hope for an Oz-like transformation from black and white into color for the big finish.
