Mariah Carey “New Year’s Rockin’ Eve 2017″ Video: Watch Performance!
Mariah Carey performed on “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve With Ryan Seacrest 2017” on Saturday. But there were all sorts of problems. Watch the video below!
The singer helped ring in the new year by performing for more than one million people camped out in Times Square, and millions more watching at home prior to the annual ball dropping. She seemed to have issues, however, lip syncing and said, “I’m gonna let the audience sing.” Carey also told the audience she was “trying to be a good sport” about all the technical problems.
In 2005, Carey was the first artist to perform live from Times Square on the ABC special, which is now in its 45th year. In a statement released earlier this month, the superstar said, “I am so excited to return to ‘Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve With Ryan Seacrest’ and feel blessed to be a part of this year’s magical celebration. I can’t wait to perform once again for my incredible fans as we ring in the New Year together live from Times Square.”
Host Seacrest also chimed in, saying, “Mariah was the first live performance from Times Square in 2005 when I joined Dick Clark as co-host. After nearly a decade, I’m excited to join her again in Times Square, along with all our incredible performances, to ring in 2017.” In addition to Carey, others slated to perform live included DNCE, Gloria Estefan, and Thomas Rhett.
