What in the world happened to Mariah Carey during her New Year’s Eve performance in Times Square? Who is to blame? And will she ever be the same? We need answers!
During the multi-Grammy Award winner’s set during Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve in New York City, the pop star suffered a series of malfunctions that has officially become the talk of 2017. Talk about ringing in the new year on a low note … literally.
The first mishap occurred while the mother of two started to sing her hit track, “Emotions.” Off the top, it became very clear that she was lip syncing when you hear the 46-year-old tell her backup dancers, “Just walk me down” while the track played over the top.
It continued to go downhill when the track kept playing and Carey wasn’t singing a darn word. Oops. “We can’t hear,” she then said while attempting to keep up with the audio.
Folks, it didn’t end there.
Carey oddly just stood on stage like a deer in headlights while her dancers danced in circles. “We’re missing some of these vocals, but it is what it is,” she said at one point. “Let the audience sing.”
She added, “I’m trying to be a good sport here.”
And as if the “Emotions” meltdown wasn’t enough, Mariah’s downfall of a performance continued into “We Belong Together.” At one point during the classic song, the performer completely stopped making any attempt to sing.
“It just don’t get any better,” she said before walking off stage. Yikes.
Following the uncomfortable performance, Nick Cannon’s ex-wife posted an “oh well” GIF on Instagram with the caption: “Sh*t happens. Have a happy and healthy new year everybody! Here’s to making more headlines in 2017.”
It’s still unclear what exactly went wrong, but the event representative, Nicole Perna, tells the Associated Press that “unfortunately there was nothing she could do to continue with the performance given the circumstances.”
According to reports, there was some kind of altercation earlier in the day with Carey’s team and the audio producer, who apparently has worked the event for several years. “Every monitor and in-ear device worked perfectly,” Robert Goldstein said in a statement. “ I can’t comment beyond that and don’t know what her nontechnical issue may have been.”

Kim Kardashian Savagely Claps Back At Lamar Odom Over Khloe Diss
Let’s be clear, Kim Kardashian isn’t a savage, but her clapback to Lamar Odom after he low key dissed her sister Khloe was pretty ferocious.
After Odom appeared on BET’s The Man Cave and told the hosts that he knew his marriage to Khloé was over “when she was with her second or third NBA ballplayer,” Kim got him all the way together.
“Or second or third brothel,” she shot back via Twitter.
The former NBA player reportedly frequented brothels including Dennis Hof’s Love Ranch were he infamously overdosed back in October 2015. Khloe helped nurse him back to health and even called off their divorce until he was fully recovered.
Odom told the hosts that he has nothing but love for her and wished well with her new relationship with Tristan Thompson and her pregnancy. “I’m happy for her! She took care of me,” he said. “She’ll be a good mother, for real. She’s a great woman.”
You can see the full episode of BET’s Mancave Thursday at 8/9c.
