Listen to Mariah Carey explain New Year’s Eve performance disaster

Listen guys, they foiled me, thus it turned into an opportunity to humiliate me and all those who were excited to ring in the New Year with me”

Mariah Carey has posted an audio clip of her explaining her botched New Year’s Eve performance to her Twitter page.

The singer was booked to perform three songs on Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest, but made headlines after technical issues turned her appearance on the show into a disaster.

I haven’t really addressed the situation that happened on New Year’s Eve, and in time I will,” she said in the recording. “But for now, I want everyone to know that I came to New Year’s Eve in New York in great spirits and was looking forward to a celebratory moment with the world.

She then went on to blame the production team for not fixing technical issues, saying it was “a shame” they “chose to capitalise on circumstances beyond our control”.


“It’s not practical for a singer to sing live and be able to hear themselves properly in the middle of Times Square with all the noise, the freezing cold, the smoke from the smoke machines, and thousands of people celebrating, especially when their ear monitors are not working properly,” she reasoned.
