Mariah Carey back to Times Square New Year's after debacle

Mariah Carey's last New Year's Eve performance in Times Square was disastrous, but she'll be back to give it another go on "Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2018".

She later cited "techinical issues" for the headline-making fail, but producers had called her claims "absurd". The "All I Want For Christmas Is You" singer stopped singing during the performance a few times and was visibly upset despite a pre-recorded track playing in the background.

The singer was invited to take the stage at New Year's Rockin' Eve last year, but Carey's performance took a turn for the awkward after she refused to sing throughout the majority of the set. Things then went downhill when Carey started performing "Emotions" and "We Belong Together", during which the pop icon couldn't hear through her in-ear monitors.

"Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2018" marks the 46th anniversary of America's largest celebration of the year and will include 5 ½ hours of special performances and reports on New Year's celebrations from around the globe.

After the show, she went on to talk about what happened, blaming Dick Clark productions for sabotaging her with technical glitches and a faulty earpiece. "See you in Times Square!" a statement from Carey and Dick Clark productions reads. The production company denied the claims and reiterated that Carey's performance was troubled because she didn't properly rehearse.

Carey should be a huge ratings lure, because last year's performance was so widely discussed. Carey joins previously announced Times Square performers including chart-topping singer/songwriter Camila Cabello, multi-platinum singer/songwriter and actor Nick Jonas and award-winning duo Sugarland.
