Mariah Carey has opened up about her New Year’s Eve performance in Time Square, which has left her “mortified” after experiencing live technical difficulties.
In the beginning of all of this, the 46-year-old singer attempted to shrug off the performance after technicians played the wrong lip-synced track over her performance of her song Emotions.
After experiencing severe backlash on social media when her performance went viral, Carey has now offered an explanation for what occurred onstage and said that telling the audience to sing while she was unable was “horrible”.
Carey’s publicist initially blamed the producer of the event Dick Clark Productions for not doing various sound checks before the show started, but the singer told Entertainment Weekly that she was grateful for working with Dick Clark earlier in her career.
“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.
Carey went on to say that she does not think that Clark would have let her or any other artiste fail at such a globally recognized performance.
“I’m of the opinion that Dick Clark would not have let an artiste go through that and he would have been as mortified as I was in real time.”
Although quite a few people on social media are of the opinion that her poor performance is an indication that Carey should retire from her singing career, she said that this mishap will not stop her from future performances and thanked her fans for their support.
“It’s not going to stop me from doing a live event in the future. But it will make me less trusting of using anyone outside of my own team.
“My true fans have been so supportive and I am so appreciative of them because it really was an incredible holiday season that turned into a horrible New Year’s Eve.”
