Mariah Carey has admitted she felt "very intimated" by Aretha Franklin when they duetted together for 'Divas Live' in 1998.
The 'Hero' hitmaker has opened up about the day the pair hit the stage together for VH1's 'Divas Live' in 1998, which saw them perform the late Queen of Soul's hit song 'Chain of Fools'.
The pair only got the chance to rehearse once, hours before going on stage, and the 48-year-old megastar confessed she was so nervous, she didn't want to do the gig.
Recalling what it was like performing with the music icon - who passed away after a battle with pancreatic cancer at the age of 76 in August - she spilled: "I was very intimidated and didn't want to perform with her.
"Everybody else was like, 'Let me have it.'
