Mariah Carey's new year got off to an awful start as the singer was the victim of a series of technical malfunctions during her performance on ABC's Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve with Ryan Seacrest.
Mariah Carey had a rockin' New Years nightmare in Times Square.
However, judging by her reaction, Mariah isn't sweating it. I'm going to say let the audience sing, okay? She even tells the audience at one point that she's being a good sport, which is pretty much the opposite of what a good sport in that situation would say.
After a brief, flawless "Auld Lang Syne", it was all downhill for Mariah Carey on New Year's Eve. "Here's to making more headlines in 2017", as fans were reacting to the situation.
Her management said technical difficulties, not Carey, were to blame for the mess.
Carey was supposed to lip sync to the song but before long she was complaining about more sound problems. Mariah looked visibly flustered when she struggled to lip-sync to her hit songs "Emotions" and "We Belong Together" in front of millions of television viewers. "We can't hear, but I'll just get through the moment, okay".
That's when Grammy-winning German pop stars Fab Morvan and Rob Pilatus (a.k.a. Milli Vanilli) were performing their hit song "Girl You Know It's True" during a televised MTV concert in Bristol, Connecticut.
Mariah Carey ended 2016 on a bad note. or make that, a wrong note. Carey claims that right up until she went onstage, she couldn't hear anything from the inner ear pieces and was repeatedly assured everything would be fine.
The track finally came to an end with her saying sarcastically: "That was. fantastic".
"Who needs to drop the ball for New Year's when Mariah Carey already covered it", tweeted another user.
