Mariah Carey, Miguel, Good Morning America

ABC/Ida Mae Astute

Good Morning America's editors were extra busy today.

In addition to the wardrobe malfunction that resulted in a live S-bomb from Mariah Carey that was ultimately scrubbed out for viewers on the West Coast, technicians also later tweaked the high notes that the hitmaker struggled with during her duet with Miguel on "Beautiful."

Carey appears to be paying an unusual amount of attention to her earpiece during the part in question, so perhaps she was distracted by feedback or some other in-house issue.

Reps for ABC and GMA have not yet responded to requests for comment.

But you can't miss the difference between the two feeds: The live East Coast performance is, to quote Carey pal Randy Jackson, "pitchy," while the West Coast version is pitch-perfect.

Watch them both now, pitchy version first.

What do you think the problem was?
