Mariah Carey refused to sing at her NYE performance

Alicia WestJan 02, 2017

The ultimate music diva was scheduled to perform on ABC's New Year's Rockin' Eve special last night live from Times Square in New York City.

The singer, 46, asked for the monitors to be turned on during her two-song performance, but a technical glitch caused her to eventually walk off stage. The performance didn't go as planned, but if you were otherwise occupied to watch, or were asleep by the midnight ball drop in NY, then you can rewatch Mariah Carey's New Year's Eve performance to see what everyone will be talking and tweeting until something else happens.

Her management said technical difficulties, not Carey, were to blame for the mess.

Sound problems appeared during Carey's appearance, beginning with her take on the New Year's Eve classic "Auld Lang Syne". "Here's to making more headlines in 2017" and a GIF of herself shrugging.

At one point during the performance the increasingly frustrated singer reportedly said, "I wanted a holiday too, can't I just have one".

According to sources speaking to Billboard magazine, Carey had experienced a hard and highly abbreviated rehearsal process prior to the New Year's Eve festivities, amd couldn't hear her vocal track through her in-ear monitor.

Throughout some moments of the song, however, Carey didn't move her lips or attempt to sync with the vocals on the track.

Mariah Carey thinks you should all get over it because "shit happens". She may have been wanting to sing, even if that backing track was meant to be so loud that it would be hard to hear her. It was the year of unexpected surprises, with many of them being tragedies just as losing a number of beloved people. "Let the audience sing, OK?" "No matter what Mariah does, the crowd absolutely loves it".

She took to the stage ahead of the celebrations at midnight, and stunned in a bedazzled nude bodysuit.
