ICYMI: Mariah Carey decided to talk through her performance of ‘Emotion’ during her Dick Clarkl’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve With Ryan Seacrest performance.
Mariah Carey tweeted shortly after the flub that sh*t happens.
I think if all parties involved left it there we’d be done talking about this- but it’s not. Mariah’s camp claimed that Dick Clark Productions set her up for failure… that the song ‘Emotion’ was NOT part of Mariah’s 3 hour soundcheck earlier that day. On top of that- they said that 4 minutes before Mariah was set to perform she found out her in-ear piece wasn’t working. They said Mariah couldn’t hear the track over the crowd.
THEN, Dick Clark Productions said that to suggest DCP would ever sabotage an artist, and that such claims were ‘defamatory, outrageous, and frankly absurd’.
UPDATE: TMZ now has photos to prove that Mariah WAS at soundcheck… apparently her ear piece was ‘choppy’ then but she was told it’d be fixed.
