Just in case you missed it…
Mariah Carey was to perform two songs just before midnight on Dick Clark’s Rockin’ New Year’s Eve hosted by Ryan Seacrest…
Here’s what happened: Mariah’s manager told stage managers that the “in-ears” weren’t working four minutes before showtime; reassurances the ear pieces would function once live turned out to be bogus so Mariah “pulled them out but could not hear the music over the crowd.”
Some claims were made that the production company sabotaged the performance.
Some claimed that Mariah had a body-double attend rehearsals and didn’t go herself and didn’t care about the performance.
Anyway… DNCE was great!
