Something happened to Mariah Carey‘s voice, you guys… And it’s not a good thing.

The 44-year-old singer took the stage at the Rockefeller Center for the NBC special Wednesday night and performed a cringe-worthy version of her holiday hit “All I Want for Christmas is You,” struggling to hit the high notes and stay on key.

A website called The Concourse released an unedited edition of the performance, which isolates Mimi’s vocals and shows the world what she really sounds like… And it’s bad.  Like painstakingly bad.

However, as sad as we are that “The Voice” is no longer the best singer in the business, we have to admit she sort of deserved it.  The performance was delayed 24-hours because Mariah couldn’t get her act together.  She was originally supposed to perform for the taping on Tuesday night, but showed up 3-hours late and was asked to leave.

NBC told her the only way she’d be able to perform for the special is if she did it live on Wednesday… And look what happened!  Karma’s a bitch, Mimi.
