Mariah Carey Returns To Perform At "New Years Rockin' Eve"

Mariah Carey Returns To Perform At

The performance will come exactly a year after the singer staged a messed up gig at New York's Times Square on the 2016-ending special.

During last year's Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve show, Carey stumbled during the performance, going off the lip-sync track that played. The megastar and her camp claimed Dick Clark productions sabotaged her performance with with technical glitches and a faulty earpiece.

Mariah Carey also took to Twitter nearly immediately after she departed the stage, and sending a self-deprecating tweet about the mess up. (Last month, Bulochnikov said she and Carey had split as manager and client.) This New Year's Eve, the singer will top a lineup that also includes pop singers Camila Cabello and Nick Jonas, plus country duo Sugarland. Because that seems about right, and it's still better than anything any of us could do, so have some damn respect for the Eight-Octave Angel.

Carey would be the first to tell you that her appearance on the show previous year did not rock.

USF: 5 bold predictions for Birmingham Bowl
After a goal line stance by Texas Tech early in the 4th, USF ties it up at 24-24 with a 5 yard touchdown run by Flowers. Flowers ended his day with an MVP performance with 311 passing yards and four touchdowns and 106 rushing yards.

Part of the New Years tradition for many is gathering around the TV for Dick Clark's New Years Rockin' Eve, including the live performances that accompany the ball dropping.

All Mariah Carey wants for Christmas this year is a do over.

"There was a production issue and technical difficulties", a rep for Mariah said in a statement obtained by Us Weekly at the time. The even sound problem was there on her show. Dick Clark Productions made the decision to ask her on and she agreed. The singer tweeted hours later, "S- happens ..." This will no doubt come to a surprise for many, considering her disastrous go a year ago, and the fallout that followed in the days afterward. Sure, it might be amusing to watch something fall apart in front of your very eyes, but deep down inside you're still wanting to see them bounce back fully.

Are you excited for this year's Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve show?
