Mariah Carey Reboot: Songstress Returns For New Year's Rockin' Eve Redemption

Posted December 24, 2017

Producers of the popular year-end program have confirmed that Carey will ring in 2018 with a celebratory performance.

The music superstar will no doubt be very prepared for the upcoming gig, after last year's complications, where sound problems plagued the concert, beginning with her take on the New Year's Eve classic Auld Lang Syne.

Mariah Carey will return to the scene of her infamous major malfunction in Times Square on New Year's Eve, agreeing to another performance this year for Dick Clark's Bew Year's Rockin' Eve With Ryan Seacrest. She was visibly upset and stopped singing, despite a pre-recorded track playing in the background proving that she does not sing all her music live.

Well, it looks like Carey and New Year's Rockin' Eve producers have kissed and made up - and they're looking to put last years debacle far behind them and redeem themselves this upcoming year. The show is marking its 46 anniversary, and Seacrest has hosted from Times Square for the past 12 years.

Words flew afterwards with Carey saying that her show had been sabotaged by ABC, citing an unsatisfactory run through earlier in the day. Actress-comedian Jenny McCarthy will be stationed in Time Square.

Last year, Carey's live performance in Times Square on New Year's Eve was a hot mess. She developed a close association with the holiday season through her hit "All I Want for Christmas Is You" and for several years has performed a set of Christmas-themed concerts in NY. Pop sensations Camila Cabello and Nick Jonas and country duo Sugarland will also rock the mic.

The news comes as Carey has rescheduled her planned February 2018 tour to Australia, delaying her visit.

Days after the performance went viral, Carey told Entertainment Weekly she was "mortified", though she had previously tweeted "s-t happens" as her name started rising up the ranks of Twitter and Facebook.
