Mariah Carey To Get Another Chance on Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve Following 2016 Fiasco
We remember Mimi’s 2017 New Year’s performance disastrous performance.
The singer, 47, announced on Instagram and Twitter that she will be once again taking the stage during the live broadcast of Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest. “Take 2. #RockinEve #NYE,” Carey wrote.
Carey and Dick Clark Productions released a joint statement to PEOPLE: “We can all agree that last year didn’t go exactly as planned and we are thrilled to move forward together to provide America with an incredible night of music and celebration on Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2018. See you in Times Square!”
Last year, sound problems plagued Carey’s performance, beginning with her take on the New Year’s Eve classic “Auld Lang Syne.” Seconds into that number, it became clear the mother of two could not hear the backup vocals heard on the live broadcast, causing her to get flustered.
Then when Carey made the transition into her second number of her 1991 hit “Emotions” she paused to tell the audience: “We didn’t have a [sound] check for this song, so we’ll just say it went to No. 1 and that’s what it is, okay?” And it all went down hill from there… Do you think Carey will redeem herself?
Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest airs on Dec. 31 on ABC at 8:00 p.m. EST.
