The highly anticipated performance was broadcast on the Wednesday America’s Got Talent August 5, 2009 episode of the show of which Carey’s husband, Nick Cannon is the host. It is the network TV premiere of the official lead single from the five-time Grammy winner’s forthcoming twelfth studio album, ‘Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel’.

The Mariah Carey Obsessed lyrics, which she co-wrote with The-Dream and Christopher “Tricky” Stewart (who co-produced the track), have widely been believed to be referring to Eminem. The music video directed by Brett Ratner and shot on location in New York City at the Plaza Hotel with the singer portraying a character with a strong physical resemblance to the Slim Shady rapper intensified speculation and presumption. The rapper himself has responded in the Eminem The Warning, a diss song against both the singer and her husband Nick Cannon, the latter who, in turn has responded via Twitter by quoting Biblical verses.

With the high profile premiere of the Mariah Carey music video last month on the TV talent show, and now the Mariah Carey America’s Got Talent video of her live performance, there is mounting interest both in the hit single as well as in the forthcoming release of the album Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel which will be out on September 15, 2009.

The performance was taped in advance of broadcast before a live studio audience, featuring the singer and her back-up dancers, and can be seen below.
