Mariah Carey’s New Year’s Eve Epic Fail: Embarrassed Before Millions on Live TV (WATCH)

*Po’ thang.

To say Mariah Carey‘s New Year’s Eve performance in Times Square on live TV didn’t go well would be an understatement.

The diva was straight up exposed you could say. On ABC’s “Dick Clark’s Rockin’ New Year’s Eve,” Carey had to deal with an audio equipment malfunction, which resulted in a very awkward situation that she and millions watching would like to forget.

Apparently, Mariah couldn’t hear herself via the on-stage monitors which meant she couldn’t lip sync. Anyway, maybe SHE couldn’t her anything on stage, but the live audience at the event and everybody watching on TV had no problem hearing the music and backing track for her hit song “Emotions” — including all the pre-recorded high notes. (Oops. Not a good look)

Watch it all fall apart:

We really felt sorry for her because, while her back-up dancers kept doing their thing, she was pretty much reduced to walking around the stage, repeatedly asking a technician to turn her speakers on.

At one point she told the crowd, “I’m trying to be a good sport here.”

Po’ thang.

In any event, trying to make the best of a messy situation, a frustrated and embarrassed Carey later tweeted:

“Shit happens. Have a happy and healthy new year everybody! Here’s to making more headlines in 2017.”

And of course social media was merciless:

If you’re looking for an excuse, there really isn’t any, however the Hollywood Reporter says Carey had suffered from a tight and difficult rehearsal schedule earlier in the night and was unable to hear through her in-ear monitor for most of her set, according to a source.

The source told Billboard, “She didn’t have the kind of time that she usually gets for her “Mariah-ness.’”

Whateva.

  1. That was God awful, and I’m not referring to the singing. What’s with the ill-fitting bodysuit and fat girl tights? She looked bloated and uncomfortable. And that fat belly. She would have done better in a classy dress, standing still and just letting her amazing voice entertain the audience, instead of stumbling around around with those cheesy looking dancers. Sometimes less is more.
