Mariah Carey gives Times Square gig another try

Theo Wargo  Getty Images       Carey struggled to get through her set during her New Year's Eve performance last year

Mariah Carey was set to perform during "Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve with Ryan Seacrest" following last year's chaotic performance.

Mariah Carey performs during New Years Eve celebrations in Times Square in Manhattan NY on December 31, 2016. She was visibly upset and at points stopped singing, despite a pre-recorded track playing in the background.

"Afterward, Carey posted a meme of herself on social media with the message "(expletive happens)". Things then went downhill when Carey started performing "Emotions" and "We Belong Together", during which the pop icon couldn't hear through her in-ear monitors. The production company denied the claims and reiterated that Carey's performance was troubled because she didn't properly rehearse.

Carey was allegedly the victim of a technical malfunction when she appeared on the big stage in 2016-2017, although her freakish off-camera demeanor made others question whether sound was the issue. "See you in Times Square", the singer said in a statement in conjunction with Dick Clark Productions. Pop sensations Camila Cabello and Nick Jonas and country duo Sugarland will also rock the mic.

"We can all agree that a year ago didn't go exactly as planned and we are thrilled to move forward together to provide America with an incredible night of music and celebration on", Dick Clark Productions and Carey said in a joint statement.

Carey should be a huge ratings lure, because last year's performance was so widely discussed.

She blamed technical difficulties, saying her earpiece wasn't working, for last year's flop.

"Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin'?Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2018" is produced by dick clark productions with Ryan Seacrest, Allen Shapiro and Mike Mahan serving as executive producers and Barry Adelman and Mark Bracco as co-executive producers.
