MANILA, Philippines – Mariah Carey welcomed 2017 in New York in the most uncomfortable manner.
The singer was performing “Aude Lang Syne” during the Dick Clark New Year’s Rockin’ Eve 2017 and started to have problems afterward.
One of her classic hits “Emotions” started to play and according to netizens who were watching the show, it seemed she was not prepared for it at all. At some point of the performance, she just kept walking around the stage because she claimed she could not hear the song.
“Put these monitors on please,” Mariah said at one point.
Mariah also sang “We Belong Together” but walked off the stage before the song finished.

After her performance, Mariah took to Twitter and said: “S**t happens .Have a happy and healthy new year everybody! Here’s to making more headlines in 2017.”
