Twitter just about melted down over Mariah Carey‘s disastrous performance last night on live TV. (Did you watch?!) The trouble started as soon as she got onstage to sing Auld Lang Syne in Times Square… her backing track didn’t match up with what she was singing.
The she went into Emotion but appeared to not be able to hear the track.
“We can’t hear but I’ll just get through ‘Emotion.’ All right, we didn’t have a check for this song, so we’ll just say it went to number one….
We’re missing some of the vocals, but it is what it is … I’m gonna let the audience sing. We didn’t have a sound check for this New Year’s baby, it is what it is.“
Then as the next number, We Belong Together, started to play, Carey tried to sing along but was a little out of sync with the backing track. She soon gave up on that song too, telling her dancers to
“Bring the feathers… (then giving up.)
It just don’t get any better.“
Viewers RACED to Twitter to trash Carey’s performance…
“Mariah Carey’s performance pretty much sums up 2016.”
“Just when you thought 2016 wasn’t taking anything else, it took Mariah Carey’s career with it too.“
Actor Josh Gad tweeted,
“#MariahCarey doing a Second City improv workshop on live TV is giving me life right now.“
But the superstar took it all in stride, tweeting.
“Shit happens. Have a happy and healthy new year everybody! Here’s to making more headlines in 2017.“
