The Greenlawn-raised diva will return to Times Square on New Year's Eve to perform shortly before midnight, the same slot where she endured an embarrassing appearance last year plagued by technical difficulties and her stunning inability to sing or even lip sync to her hits. Carey performed a year ago, but she allegedly had technical difficulties, which caused her to have what some called a very awkward performance.
This year's edition of "New Year's Rockin" Eve' is going to feature some epic performances, including Mariah Carey's comeback!
Mariah Carey is in Aspen with BF Brian Tanaka, but she'll be leaving for The Big Apple the next day ready to prep for round 2 of Dick Clark's Rocin' New Year's Eve. and this time there's a plan to avert disaster.
"Afterward, Carey posted a meme of herself on social media with the message "(expletive happens)".
Mariah and Bryan have been practically inseparable since she split from her billionaire fiance James Packer last October. A rep for Dick Clark Productions denied any staffer would "intentionally compromise the success of any artist". "We're excited to have her back".More news: Look out for a Wolf Moon over Manchester this New Year

Seacrest called Carey an "old friend" and said, though he didn't have the idea to bring her back, he is glad she is returning to the show.
"I give her tremendous credit for saying, 'I'm coming back".
Workers prepare to install the last panels on the New Year's Eve ball above Times Square, New York, Dec. 27, 2017. She developed a close association with the holiday season through her hit "All I Want for Christmas Is You" and for several years has performed a set of Christmas-themed concerts in NY.
Carey will be joined on the televised show by other musicians, including Britney Spears, Joe Jonas and Imagine Dragons, performing in at various sites across the country. 'See you in Times Square!' "I'm trying to be a good sport here", she said, adding her own sarcastic review of the performance.
