Mariah Carey redo headlines Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve

The New Year's Eve co-hosts spoke with US Weekly about Carey signing up for round two for "Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve With Ryan Seacrest". Carey performed previous year, but she allegedly had technical difficulties, which caused her to have what some called a very awkward performance. She's scheduled to perform again for New Year's Eve 2018. A rep for Dick Clark Productions denied any staffer would "intentionally compromise the success of any artist".

Mariah Carey is in Aspen with BF Brian Tanaka, but she'll be leaving for The Big Apple the next day ready to prep for round 2 of Dick Clark's Rocin' New Year's Eve. and this time there's a plan to avert disaster. Carey cut her performance short and had social media in a frenzy. Well, according to TMZ the chance of viewers seeing Mariah tank another performance are slim considering soundcheck is absolutely mandatory.

Mariah initially met the handsome back-up dancer when she employed him on her 40-date, $27.9 million grossing Adventures of Mimi Tour back in 2006. "I don't know if the idea was hers or ours, but it's a great idea, and so we're happy to have her back".

"I give her tremendous credit for saying, 'I'm coming back".

She is set to perform Sunday in New York City's Times Square a year after her problematic performance went viral. Telling the revellers jammed into Times Square that there had not been a sound check for her hit song Emotions, she lamented that "we're missing some of these vocals, but it is what it is".

In Carey's 2016 performance, the pop star claimed she couldn't hear the music and stopped singing on live television when footage aired that showed her clearly lip syncing. "I'm trying to be a good sport here", she said, adding her own sarcastic review of the performance. Here's everything you need to know to get you up to speed. The finishing touches are in place on the New Year's Eve centerpiece, that features more than 2,500 Waterford crystal triangles and weighs almost six tons.
