Mariah Carey Will Return to Times Square for New Year's Eve After Last Year's Embarrassing Mishap
Mariah Carey again will close out the year with a performance in New York’s Times Square — no doubt determined to redeem herself after an embarrassing audio malfunction during last year’s festivities.
The global icon will return for Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2018 despite butting heads with Dick Clark Productions after last year’s snafu.
In a joint statement, Carey and Dick Clark Productions said: “We can all agree that last year didn’t go exactly as planned and we are thrilled to move forward together to provide America with an incredible night of music and celebration on Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2018. See you in Times Square!”
The superstar first appeared on Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve in 2005, when she became the first artist to perform live from Times Square on the program.
