Mariah Carey redo headlines Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve

Ryan Seacrest and Jenny McCarthy

ABC is preparing for the Sunday night special New Year's Rockin' Eve hosted by Ryan Seacrest and Jenny McCarthy but the show is getting some serious attention for their lineup.

For years, this event has been the American way of starting the year with a bang, offering spectacular performances and exciting celebrity appearances.

Mariah Carey performs during a concert in Times Square on New Year's Eve in NY, U.S. December 31, 2016. But can the comeback queen find similar success when she returns to "Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve with Ryan Seacrest" after last year's debacle?

Dick Clark Productions, which produces the show, countered that the monitor was fine and that Carey skipped rehearsals - something TMZ reports will not happen this year. Carey also shared a photo to her social media pages and wrote: "Take 2". Previous year didn't quite work out as planned for the star. "She's a legendary, iconic artist so we're excited to have her back to do it again". "I don't know if the idea was hers or ours, but it's a great idea, and so we're happy to have her back".


In a 2014 Instagram post, Tanaka gushed about the singer, saying, 'She has always supported me and been so kind'. "I'm going on the same stage at the exact same moment before the ball drops in front of tens of millions of people'".

She added: "So I'm honored that she said yes, and I'm honored to be a part of a show that is doing something so nice". Her performance was disastrous, to say the least. "I think it's to have a crushing performance in Times Square", Seacrest said.

"I know everybody felt like, 'That is not how we want the memory to live on.' What is the memory we all want?" Telling the revellers jammed into Times Square that there had not been a sound check for her hit song Emotions, she lamented that "we're missing some of these vocals, but it is what it is".
