Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – Mariah Carey’s New Year’s Eve performance did not go well and the host of the annual show, Ryan Seacrest , broke his silence regarding the matter.
In the Thursday morning edition of “On Air with Ryan Seacrest ,” he talked about the performance of Carey at Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve. His statement comes after the camp of Carey and that of Dick Clark maintain that they were not at fault. Carey’s team that the singer was sabotaged as her ear piece was not working and Dick Clark’s production team did not do anything about it. Dick Clark's organizatiojn , on the other hand, said that the statements of Carey and her camp are defamatory and absurd as they would not do anything that will hurt the reputation of any artist.
The forty-two-year-old Seacrest said in his show, “It is difficult to perform in Times Square. I mean, she had done it before because she was the first musical guest that we had had live when I started doing the show a decade ago. So she had seen it; she knows what Times Square is about. It’s complicated. I don’t know what you realize on TV or you see, but imagine: Every single TV outlet in the world is there. There’s all kinds of technical things going on. It’s live television, and things happen on live TV — if something goes wrong, it’s unfortunate for anybody.”
Seacrest , however, was not fully aware of what was happening as he was no longer onstage during Carey’s performance. He was moving to another stage to continue his hosting job.
What happened was that Carey sang the classic “Auld Lang Syne” before she was supposed to sing her “Emotions” and “We Belong Together” songs. Carey took of her ear piece multiple times to say that something was wrong. She did not sing most of her songs and let the audience do the singing. Towards the end, she said, “That was… amazing.” She also later tweeted, “S— happens … Here’s to making more headlines in 2017.”
