Mariah Carey Reboot: Songstress Returns For New Year's Rockin' Eve Redemption

Adjust Comment Print

Mariah Carey will return to Times Square to perform for a live audience of more than one million people, just minutes before the ball drops on Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2018. She made her entry into the world of independent film with her landmark performance in "WiseGirls" starring alongside Academy Award victor Mira Sorvino and Melora Walters.

The singer was invited to take the stage at New Year's Rockin' Eve last year, but Carey's performance took a turn for the awkward after she refused to sing throughout the majority of the set. The "All I Want For Christmas Is You" singer stopped singing during the performance a few times and was visibly upset despite a pre-recorded track playing in the background.

But later on, after making several headlines for the mishap-filled show, Carey's reps cited "technical issues" as the reason that the performance went downhill.

Following the show, Carey posted a meme of herself on social media with the message "s-- happens".

The pop diva recently rescheduled dates for her Australian tour next year but bumped Perth off the list off performances.

Boeing , she said, is seeking to "advance its market dominance by excluding Bombardier's C Series aircraft from the USA market". The decision follows the DoC's preliminary recommendation of duties on Bombardier's C Series jets earlier this fall.

"All I can say is Dick Clark was an incredible person and I was lucky enough to work with him when I first started in the music business", Carey told Entertainment Weekly.

"Last night's situation was beyond my control", she tweeted.

Other performers already announced for the live Times Square performances include Camila Cabello, Nick Jonas and Sugarland. During what was supposed to be her performance of "Emotions", Carey didn't sing.

Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve with Ryan Seacrest airs Sunday, Dec. 31 at 8/7c on ABC. "See you in Times Square!" a statement from Carey and Dick Clark productions reads.
