Mariah Carey, New Year’s Rockin Eve Producers Fight Over Perfomance

Submitted by on January 2, 2017 – 12:48 pmNo Comment

After a disastrous performance on live television on New Year’s Eve, Mariah Carey‘s representative claimed the singer was “set up to fail” by the production company. Dick Clark Productions, the group behind New Year’s Rockin’ Eve in Times Square, responded that such accusations are “defamatory, outrageous and frankly absurd.”

Carey did not sing throughout much of the brief performance. She stood, visible irritated, and encouraged the audience to sing.

The singer claimed that her earpiece wasn’t working, and that she had brought this to the attention of the producers, to no avail. DCP denied that technical difficulties were a factor.

“A person familiar with the production of the show who asked for anonymity” claimed that Carey was the evening’s only performer not to attend the technical run-through.

This is not Carey’s first troublesome performance on live TV. In 2015, she botched a rendition of her signature holiday song, “All I Want for Christmas is You” at the NBC Rockefeller Center Christmas tree lighting.
