Mariah Carey's rambling, cursing, dress-popping "Good Morning America" concert

She might be leaving “American Idol,” but Mariah Carey sure knows how to make live TV thrilling.

In a Central Park concert this morning on “Good Morning America,” Mariah Carey popped out of her dress. “This is the diva drama. I wake up at this hour — I don’t mean I wake up, I mean I go to sleep,” she announced shortly before narrowly avoiding getting ABC News a big FCC fine.

“My dress popped. I love you Donatella, but it popped, darling. I just wanted to change the ensemb’. Both of them are out now. These are out. What should we call this, the Central Park Saga?” “G.M.A.” anchor Lara Spencer threw to commercial as Carey was sewn back into her dress. “This seems like a YouTube moment, possibly Spotify even,” Carey, who memorably melted down live on MTV in 2001, quipped.

It was a tough morning for “Good Morning America”‘s summer concert series. Carey had to hold her microphone pack while singing “Always Be My Baby” as she hadn’t had time to put it on; she audibly cursed while climbing a staircase; and she struggled to hit high notes while performing her new single “#Beautiful.”
