A song as good as "Beautiful" by Mariah Carey & Miguel deserves an amazing video. Unfortunately, it didn't get one.
Mariah looks hot. That's great. Miguel is looking cool. We could have seen that in photos and not in a video format.
If they spent more than an hour making this video, I will be surprised. 45 minutes looking for a location...and 15 minutes with Mariah posing and Miguel smiling.
Miguel, buddy. I LOVE your style...but you need to find your own identity. This whole riding on a motorcycle like your Prince and Mariah like she is Apollonia from "Purple Rain" is just too much. You are about to break out tremendously in the next year and a half. Big time! Avoid doing anything "Purple" to make sure that breakout is permanent.

Mariah. Looking good. Every video since "Loverboy" has to show off your body. You are proud of it. Heck, we are proud to be looking at it! We would have been even prouder to have seen Miguel in a tux and you in an elegant dress ala "It's Like That" but for the entire video. Do you remember your video's before "Honey" and how they looked? We do.
"Beautiful" is an amazing song and a great vehicle for Miguel's career, more-so than that awesome ride in the video. I hope it rocks the charts.
Perhaps, after "American Idol" is over, you and Miguel can reshoot the video and give the song what it deserves....which is a video NOT like that.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Like that girl at the mall, it looked good from far but the closer she got, the more she was far from good.
