Billy Throws Shade at Mariah Carey’s Performance

Mariah Carey is highly respected for her impressive vocal skills. But sometimes, even chart-topping singers miss a note — and Carey's 2014 performance at the Rockefeller Center tree lighting wasn't, shall we say, her best. (Get a quick refresher here.)

Pose star Billy Porter also performed at the tree lighting ceremony with Cyndi Lauper. And when Porter appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen on June 19, one caller was quick to bring up the holiday memory. 

"What was the vibe like after Mariah Carey's performance?" the caller asked. Porter's first reaction was to throw back his head and laugh. "Our callers really want to get the tea," Andy Cohen remarked. So, Porter gave them the tea!

Watch the clip above to hear the singer describe the mood after Carey's questionable performance.
