Mariah Carey to Return to 'New Year's Rockin' Eve'
The singer's performance on last year's show encountered numerous issues and sound problems.
Mariah Carey is determined to have a better New Year's Eve than she did in 2016 — she is returning to Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve With Ryan Seacrest after last year's debacle.
Last year, Carey had a performance that was marked by problems — at one point, she stopped singing — and it led to a public spat between the best-selling singer and Dick Clark Productions over who was at fault.
But both sides have since kissed and made up.
"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," a joint statement released to the Associated Press said. "See you in Times Square!"
Carey was the first live headline performer for the longtime special back in 2005, and that performance went seamlessly.
