No backlash, social media ridicule, or all out war with network producers will get in the way of redemption for Mariah Carey. And, let’s face it…who knows a comeback story better than Mariah Carey?
The pop diva, whose illustrious career has seen her counted out many-a-time over its 27-year tenure, is ready to show detractors once and for all. That’s right; taking to Instagram minutes ago, Carey announced she will grace the Dick Clark ‘New Year’s Rockin’ Eve’ stage again for a redemptive performance after delivering her worst televised performance to date on that very platform this time last year [click here to relive the horror].
See the announcement inside:
Yes…and no! On one hand, we have to admit the announcement is a surprise and one we’re (overall) here for. Mariah – the queen of comeback – has certainly seen her back against the wall a time or two in her career and always comes out on top. We hope this time is no different. And, her willingness to return to the platform is evidence that a) she’s smoothed things out with the show’s producers & co. and b) her team is confident enough in her ability as a performer to redeem herself.
The scary part of this all is that it has to be perfect! The ridicule she suffered at the hands of last year’s tech glitches and simply not giving-a-f*ck set a poor tone for her entire year. Truthfully, with a new management deal and inevitable new album to follow, she cannot afford (for this next era’s sake) to kick off another year – a successive one at that – the way 2017 was launched.
Here’s hoping Mimi brings her absolute A-game and reminds everyone yet again why she is triumphant.
