MARIAH CAREY had a worldwide hit with her cover of The Jackson 5 tune I’ll Be There – but she isn’t too keen to remind anyone about it.
The superstar has quietly cut the song from her set list after 27 years of performing it following fresh allegations made against Michael Jackson in the recent Leaving Neverland documentary.


Mariah Carey has axed her cover of Jackson 5 hit I'll Be There after fresh sex abuse allegations against Michael Jackson were aired in the Leaving Neverland doc
It had been a firm favourite during her gigs but she decided to axe it from her Caution World Tour in March, two weeks after the Channel 4 documentary aired.
She took the song to No2 in the UK singles chart in June 1992 and performed it at Jackson’s memorial service in 2009.

She would show footage of the late singer doing his version of it as a youngster while she did it live
Mariah has now gone seven shows without the song and it is not expected to return when she brings her tour to these shores in a fortnight – including three nights at the Royal Albert Hall.
In March, Drake dropped from his UK tour set list his posthumous Jacko collaboration Don’t Matter To Me.
Amid all the claims of child sexual abuse levelled against Jackson, I reckon they’ve both made a wise choice.

MJ isn’t muted, so she’s probably switching up her song lineup. The media is trying to start something. Which tabloid is that from? Is this THE SUN? MJ is not muted at all.

Not n mj fan but she cut the song long before his allegations came back up, after her #1 to infinty tour was over. It's a shame because thats one of the few songs she sings 100% live. The dj at her concert recently said they love mj or something like that.

This is a non-story. I'm a lamb, I would know. Uninformed people going to her concerts this year have complained about her DJ playing Michael Jackson's music back-to-back when warming up the crowd.


DJ Suss One has been doing that at Mariah Carey's concerts for almost 2 decades. Prince gets a musical shoutout now too...

"Jay Gabler‏ @JayGabler

Before the Mariah Carey show I saw last week, her warm-up DJ started his set by playing Michael Jackson and asking us to point up to MJ in heaven."

Is Michael Jackson too big to cancel? After #LeavingNeverland, the industry says yes https://blbrd.cm/0Htswu"

Every concert I've been to they've paid homage to MJ before the concert & during. Mariah's DJ, DJ SussOne warmed us up with Mike. When you came in the theater. Before DJ Suss & before Mariah. Many songs were in rotation. Michael came on many times. The theater had been blessed
