Mariah Carey

Mariah Carey (born March 27, 1969 or 1970) is an American singer, songwriter, actress, and record producer. Referred to as the "Songbird Supreme" by Guinness World Records, she is noted for her five-octave vocal range, melismatic singing style, and signature use of the whistle register.

She rose to fame in 1990 after signing to Columbia Records and releasing her eponymous debut album, which topped the U.S. Billboard 200 for eleven consecutive weeks. Soon after, Carey became the only artist ever to have their first five singles reach number one on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart, from "Vision of Love" to "Emotions".

Taylor Swift

Taylor Alison Swift is an American singer-songwriter. She is known for narrative songs about her personal life, which have received widespread media coverage. At age 14, Swift became the youngest artist signed by the Sony/ATV Music publishing house and, at 15, she signed her first record deal.

Her 2006 eponymous debut album was the longest-charting album of the 2000s in the US. Its third single, "Our Song", made her the youngest person to single-handedly write and perform a number-one song on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart. Swift's second album, Fearless, was released in 2008.

Buoyed by the pop crossover success of the singles "Love Story" and "You Belong with Me", it became the US' best-selling album of 2009 and was certified diamond in the US. The album won four Grammy Awards, and Swift became the youngest Album of the Year winner.

What the Billboard Music Awards bust means for future pop prize nights

Reading now: 330

2024 Grammy nominations were announced.But even as top contenders SZA, Taylor Swift and Olivia Rodrigo were already getting fitted for gowns, something was amiss.The fact that the nominees for music’s top prize were being announced before anyone got to chow and cocktail down for Friendsgiving — let alone Thanksgiving — made it feel way too early in the awards season.I mean, Mariah Carey didn’t even have enough time to properly defrost.Add to that the fact that the 2023 Country Music Awards took place just two days before the 2024 Grammy nominations were announced — and you knew that something just ain’t right with music award shows.That trend continued on Sunday night, when the Billboard Music Awards took the pre-Thanksgiving weekend spot long occupied by the American Music Awards — and turned it into one big turkey. (To make matters even weirder, both the BBMAs and the AMAs are owned by the same parent company.)Indeed, while the BBMAs were previously aired on NBC — these awards were relegated to a damn Billboard website.

And there was hardly anything “live” about them with a host of pre-taped performances and award presentations.Womp, MFing womp.If the BBMAs, which had previously been held in May since 2011, were going to bogart the AMAs — which had previously given us such iconic moments as Whitney Houston’s bravura, 10-minute medley of “I Loves You Porgy,” “And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going” and “I Have Nothing” in 1994 — they needed to bring it.Instead, it was such a fail that no one even cared — or even knew — about it. (That is, of course, if you weren’t one of Carey’s Lambily who were all about her performing her holiday classic “All I Want for Christmas Is You” on an awards show for the very first time.)As.
