It's Mariah Carey & Miguel's "#Beautiful"

Mariah Carey has been working the phrase "hashtag pow" into her critiques all season long on American Idol, and now we see why: early promo for her new single, a pair-up with Miguel called "#Beautiful." I can't be mad about this song, as it's actually in a different league than Mimi's previous outing, that Oz The Great And Powerful soundtrack single "Almost Home." And don't get me started on "Triumphant (Flop 'Em)."

Anyway, Mariah and Miguel make a nice duo on this bombastic, old-timey mid-tempo number. And even though Miguel gets the first verse, Carey still feels like less of an afterthought than she did on "Triumflop."

What do you think?
