Shame and embarrassment befell Mariah Carey on New Year’s Eve when she botched her performance her televised performance in New York City.
Yesterday, her aides stepped forward to cry foul play.
How the show’s organisers, Dick Clark Productions, responded?

As the premier producer of live television events for nearly 50 years, we pride ourselves on our reputation and long-standing relationships with artists. To suggest that dcp (Dick Clark Productions), as producer of music shows including the American Music Awards, Billboard Music Awards, New Year’s Rockin’ Eve and Academy of Country Music Awards, would ever intentionally compromise the success of any artist is defamatory, outrageous and frankly absurd. We want to be clear that we have the utmost respect for Ms. Carey as an artist and acknowledge her tremendous accomplishments in the industry.
A source close to production claims Carey chose not to rehearse on-site and opted to have a stand-in fill in for her.
They claim that all was well on a technical front during the rehearsal making Mariah’s mishap surprising to Dick Clark’s camp.
Alas, camp Carey aren’t convinced.
We told them [the stage managers] that the in-ears were not working 10 minutes before the performance. They then changed the battery pack, and they were still not working on the frequency four minutes before the show. We let them know again, and they just kept counting her down and reassuring her that they will work as soon as they go live, which never happened — at which point she pulled them out but could not hear the music over the crowd.
Unfortunately, Jennifer Lopez‘ decision to “like” a comment mocking Mariah’s incident has seen her come under fresh fire from detractors.
Their weapon of choice?
