Mariah Carey returning to NYC 'New Year's Rockin' Eve'

  • Mariah Carey New Year's Rockin Eve

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.

Thrilled to see her return, one fan responded to her post: "Super excited about this and so proud of you!"

Carey will join previously announced Rockin' Eve performers Camila Cabello, Nick Jonas and newly-reunited country music duo Sugarland.

Carey's performance during last year's show in Times Square was marked by embarrassing problems.

Carey claims that her performance was targeted to get better ratings.

"So imagine, [the ear piece is] no longer there, so you can't hear the music, so if you can't hear it, how can you sing to it?"

The news comes from a joint press released to the Associative Press. This will no doubt come to a surprise for many, considering her disastrous go previous year, and the fallout that followed in the days afterward. Dick Clark Productions called the accusations "outrageous and frankly absurd". In response, they claimed that Carey hadn't put enough time into rehearsing her set and saying that she showed up unprepared for her performance that evening.

The diva responded to the technical difficulties by basically giving up on the performance. Then things started to glitch as "Emotions" took off: She said mid-song that her monitors weren't working. I'm of the opinion that Dick Clark would not have let an artist go through that and he would have been as mortified as I was in real time.

Mariah Carey, the Queen of Christmas and Also Everything Else, is coming back for another NYE spectacular and I, for one, could not be more ready. "But it will make me less trusting of using anyone outside of my own team", she said.

ABC trashed her performance previous year, and her decision to blame it on the production team frankly offended Dick Clark productions so much that they called it defamation.
