I’m still cringing from watching video of Mariah Carey’s dumpster fire of a “performance” on New Year’s Eve. And just like when she was onstage refusing to sing, Mariah is blaming everyone else for the disaster except for Mariah.
TMZ is reporting that Mariah insists she was “sabotaged so TV execs could score bigger ratings than usual.” She bases this on her earpiece did not work properly.
Mariah was in the holding tent for last minute makeup, and she was alarmed, telling the production team she could barely hear anything. Mariah sources say they were assured the tent muffled the sound, and it would be fine on stage. At that point someone said her mic pack wasn’t working because the battery was dead, so they changed packs. Mariah was suspicious and got on stage 4 minutes early to test things out, and she couldn’t hear anything in her inner ear. She and her team say they complained repeatedly, but nothing was done. To make matters worse and even more suspicious, Mariah’s people say when she got on stage the prompter wasn’t working.
Sabotage? Did the TV executives change the lyrics to Mariah’s song that she has been singing for 25 years?
Dick Clark Production sources say that Mariah’s “sabotage” claim is “silly” because she’s the one who decided not to do a sound check, and had a stand-in do it instead. They also allege that there were eight monitors on stage amplifying sound, so even without an earpiece the diva should have been able to hear everything.
I’ll tell you who sabotaged Mariah, it was that damned Russians. That’s who.
