Mariah Carey will return to New Year's Rockin' Eve as headliner

MusicIn Epic Attempt at Redemption Mariah Carey Returns to ‘Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve’ Written by Alexander Kacala

The singing legend took to Twitter to announce her "take 2" performance at Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve with Ryan Seacrest.

But shit, her New Year's Eve performance in 2016 was a total disaster of career-ruining proportions. "See you in Times Square!" a statement from Carey and Dick Clark productions reads.

Carey will join Camila Cabello, Nick Jonas and Sugarland as other acts slated to perform during the show. Carey is certainly no exception after her mishap and the backlash that followed past year.

The mother of two made the transition into her second single which was from her 1991 hit "Emotions".

We love her. She is just like us.

"So imagine, [the ear piece is] no longer there, so you can't hear the music, so if you can't hear it, how can you sing to it?" "Put these monitors on, please", she pleaded with the production crew.

The latest violation of ceasefire took place at a time when the chief minister was at the Rajouri district headquarters. The deceased personnel are identified as-Major Prafulla, Sepoy Pargarh and Sepoy Gurmeet Singh of 2 Sikh battalion.

She told an interview shared by the Associated Press that both her earpiece and her microphone were "effed up" and that the "wrecked" event had left her feeling "upset" and later "vilified". This year, the production will be more bombastic and grand, complete with a full band and dancers, much more in line with her Las Vegas shows.

Dick Clark's New Years Rockin' Eve will air December 31st on ABC.

At the time, the production company described her claims that she was sabotaged as "outrageous and frankly absurd".

But later on, after making several headlines for the mishap-filled show, Carey's reps cited "technical issues" as the reason that the performance went downhill.

Oy. In a nutshell, let's just say that Carey's last time performing at the event ended up being tarnished by a whole lot of drama and misunderstanding.

Carey has recently changed managers, and the switch to Roc Nation may have prompted the return. "But it will make me less trusting of using anyone outside of my own team".
