Although Mariah Carey’s original performance of “I’ll Be There” was unplugged, yesterday’s shaky attempt had some searching for plugs. And don’t think she didn’t know it.

Hours after Michael Jackson’s memorial service, the singer turned to Twitter to apologize to her fans.

“Trying to sing today was basically impossible for me. I could barely keep myself from crying. I’m sorry that I wasn’t able to pull it together and really do it right, but I was literally choked up when I saw him there in front of me. One thing I know is, we will never really have to say goodbye to MJ. His legacy lives on through his music and the millions of people he inspired with his timeless music. He will be forever in our hearts.”

Alright. We forgive you.
