Mariah Carey Had A Cringeworthy New Year’s Eve Disaster And The Internet Got Mad Jokes
Add Mariah Carey to the list of celebrities who died in 2016. During ABC’s live broadcast of Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve on a stage in Times Square, Mariah Carey had an unmitigated disaster in front of millions.
The singer was lip-syncing her performance when one of the songs played did not have the lead vocals. So one would imagine that Mariah would do a crazy thing and actually sing her own song.
Instead, she walked around on stage and blamed everyone else for the catastrophe. The first song she was not able to sing was “Emotions.” A song that Mariah Carey has literally been singing for 25 YEARS.
“We didn’t have a check for this song… we’re missing some of the vocals, but it is what it is,” Carey said. “I’m just going to let the audience sing. We didn’t have a sound check for this New Year’s baby, it is what it is.”
She then instructs the crowd to sing her song. If only there was a professional singer in the area with a mic in their hand. If only…
“Trying to be a good sport here,” she said. Then she was totally not a good sport and stormed off the stage before finishing her three-song set.
Mariah had this to say about her pathetic and humiliating “performance.”
I understand that shit happens, but oooooff that was hard to watch. I’ve cringed less watching beheading videos than this debacle.
Twitter mocked the singer mercilessly.
