The Grammy winner rang in the new year on a rocky note when she gave a shaky performance during the annual Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve With Ryan Seacrest. While she was slated to perform two of her career hits, "Emotions" and "We Belong Together," the songstress ultimately spent her set walking around the stage out of sync, claiming she could not hear the background track. "We didn't have a check for this song," Carey told the packed Times Square crowd as she tried to carry on with the routine despite alleged technical difficulties. "I'm trying to be a good sport here."
Amid rising speculation and public criticism, the reality star later took to social media to try and shake off the snafu. "S--t happens…Have a happy and healthy new year everybody!...Here's to making more headlines in 2017," she tweeted.
