Carey returns to 'New Year's Rockin' Eve'

Adjust Comment Print

The pop diva confirmed that she will return to Times Square in NY to ring in 2018, a year after she was humiliated by technical issues at the annual televised ball-drop.

The pop singer will perform on the ABC telecast minutes before the ball drops to usher in the new year.

Carey first appeared on Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve in 2005 when she became the very first artist to perform live from Times Square on the program.

Carey had a performance that was marked by problems - at one point she stopped singing - and it led to a public spat between the best-selling singer and Dick Clark productions as to who was at fault.

Well, it looks like Carey and New Year's Rockin' Eve producers have kissed and made up - and they're looking to put last years debacle far behind them and redeem themselves this upcoming year.

Last year, Carey's live performance in Times Square on New Year's Eve was a hot mess.

The microphone system last year began to malfunction as Carey sang the opening notes of the New Year's song "Auld Lang Syne". Carey later claimed her performance was sabotaged. The show is marking its 46 anniversary, and Seacrest has hosted from Times Square for the past 12 years.

In a statement on November 4, Bulochnikov said: "After working together for nearly three years, Mariah Carey and Stella Bulochnikov have determined that it is in their mutual best interest to part ways on day-to-day management". Have a happy and healthy new year everybody! Sources within the network told the site that Carey would be the "featured performer" for the show.

Carey also teased her return to the NYE broadcast on Twitter, calling it "take two".
