Mariah Carey's New Year's Meltdown Performance

by VVN Music

The curtain was opened into the inner-workings Mariah Carey's live performance and the man behind it is probably going to be unemployed come Sunday morning.

Carey appeared on ABC's Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve about twenty minutes before midnight and, after a chorus of Auld Lang Syne, the performance went straight down hill.

It is doubtful the Carey sang one word of Emotion due to, what appeared to be, monitor problems. She talked, halfheartedly did a few dance steps and made a few excuses, yet her high notes still rang out loud and true from the backing tape. Amazingly, her dancers could hear the backing tape as they stayed right in step with their choreography.

Carey then moved into We Belong Together which she sang very well as it was obvious she was lip-syncing. At one point, while her voice held a lengthy note, she began singing a totally different set of lines into the microphone.

This was a majorly bad performance for Carey, an artist who is currently struggling to return to the spotlight after a couple of failed albums.

The following is one of the lengthier versions of the performance currently available:
