    Default Mariah Carey botches New Year's Eve performance and storms off Times Square stage

    That's one way to drop the ball! Mariah Carey botches New Year's Eve lip-sync performance and storms off Times Square stage without singing ONE WORD after shocking technical glitch




    • The superstar singer will perform as the clock strikes midnight and New York ticks over into the new year
    • Preparation for her performance has been chaotic, with organizers worried she will be late to the stage
    • Carey had to be carried onto stage during rehearsals by her new boyfriend and back-up dancer, Bryan Tanaka
    • Huge crowds of people have since packed into Times Square, eagerly awaiting the start of the new year


    PUBLISHED: 23:04 EST, 31 December 2016 | UPDATED: 00:06 EST, 1 January 2017


    Mariah Carey lashed out during her botched New Year's Eve performance, after the wrong lip-sync track played when she took the stage.
    The diva stormed around the stage, repeatedly asking for the monitors to be turned on during her performance, before trying to rescue her set by dancing briefly.

    However, she didn't last long, and then said into her microphone: 'I'm trying to be a good sport here.'

    She then remained on stage as one more song played, before walking off in a huff.

    There had been panic all day after asking earlier in the night what time the famous ball drops in Manhattan. Booked as the top guest for Dick Clark's Rockin Eve with Ryan Seacrest, the megastar is supposed to herald the start of 2017 as the Waterford Crystal drops at midnight.

    The first alarms bells rang when the star's team appeared not to be aware of the world renowned ceremony, according to the New York Post.







    Producers of the show are so concerned she might be late, that they have hired an entire crew to ensure the legendary diva makes it to the ball on time.
    When producers asked what time she would arrive, Carey's people replied, 'What time exactly does the ball drop?'


    An apartment was reportedly booked for Mariah to have her hair and make-up done in at the top of the Times Square hotel, as organizers feared she would not make the trip from her Manhattan apartment in time.
    'There's a team of top producers tasked to get her there on time and shepherd her to the stage,' a source said, according to the Post.

    In another bizarre moment earlier in the day, Carey had to be carried on stage for rehearsals by her boyfriend and back-up dancer, Bryan Tanaka.

    It was as epic as Britney's Gimme More performance at the VMA's.

    This was really bad. I think it's worse than Britney's MTV comeback performance a few years ago.

    Yes it was! It was completely baffling. She could have been a really good sport and salvaged it, but she's such a diva.

    I still think Britney's was worse.

    Mariah looked so embarrassed. At least she tried with some words and notes. Her body was mega stiff too.

    When I got online and heard "something crazy" happened with Mariah Carey, my first thought was she burst through a too-tight dress onstage.

    I think she would have been better off if that had been what happened.

    Firstly, what the fuck? How big does your own personal diva bubble have to be that you think this is OK? I thought she couldn't get any worse when she had that "personal shoe remover" on stage a few years ago, guess I was wrong!

    Secondly, put the bottle down Mariah.
