MTV got about 1,000 cool points when it created MTV Unplugged. Taped live and using only acoustic music, MTV Unplugged separates the artistes from the artists.
Mariah Carey is definitely an artiste. Programs like MTV Unplugged showcase talent like hers with an exclamation point. Carey's show was taped back in March, and received such a warm, spirited reception that an extended play, or EP, disc was produced.
