Mariah Carey has opened up about her “horrible” New Year’s Eve performance in Times Square, in which the singer lip-synced her way through two songs as audio issues plagued her set.
“All I can say is Dick Clark was an incredible person and I was lucky enough to work with him when I first started in the music business,” Carey said in an interview with Entertainment Weekly. “I’m of the opinion that Dick Clark would not have let an artist go through that and he would have been as mortified as I was in real time.”
The Grammy-winning singer faced myriad technical difficulties Saturday while headlining Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve live from Times Square. The audio issues quickly turned Carey’s performance into a cringeworthy lip-sync nightmare seen by millions and which subsequently went viral online.
