Morto: Mariah Carey faces technical issues in NY Eve gig

Mariah Carey has done it again, in yet another woeful performance which was blamed on ‘technical issues’.

Crowds gathered last night at Times Square, New York for Dick Clarke’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve hosted by Ryan Seacrest to hear the star sing.

Even surrounded by feathers, it was clear something wasn’t right with the lip sync as the star sang Auld Lang Syne.

Recognising the issue, Carey said “Well, Happy New Year! We can’t hear, but I’ll just get through the moment, okay.”

After strutting awkwardly across the stage, waiting for the issue to be rectified the star resolved to let the crowd sing before carrying on.

The mortified Carey finished by saying “That was… Amazing”.

She later brushed off the debacle in a tweet, “Shit happens. Have a happy and healthy new year everybody! Here's to making more headlines in 2017.”

Let us not forget what happened in 2014 at the tree lighting ceremony at Rockefeller Centre.

This was apparently due to ‘circumstances beyond her control’.
