And the blame game begins.
You probably won’t be surprised to learn that the Mariah Carey camp believes her botched New Year’s Eve performance was blown up just so it would get higher ratings.
According to TMZ, sources close to Carey say they made repeated complaints to execs at Dick Clark Productions that her earpieces (“inner ears”) weren’t working.
The report says Mariah did an interview with Ryan Seacrest an hour before she took the stage in Times Square and she was having trouble.
“It’s hard for me to hear you,” she was heard telling Seacrest.
Mariah and her team went to the production trailer after the interview and once again told Dick Clark execs her inner ears weren’t working. The sources say they were told her inner ears would be on a different frequency when she hit the stage and there would be no problem.
Fast forward to 6 minutes before her performance. Mariah was in the holding tent for last-minute makeup, and she was alarmed, telling the production team she could barely hear anything. Mariah sources say they were assured the tent muffled the sound, and it would be fine on stage.
