Can Mariah Carey Bounce Back from Last New Year's Eve Mishap?

Loved up Mariah Carey 47 was spotted holding hands with boyfriend Bryan Tanaka 34 in Aspen on Wednesday

As the final preps are made in New York City's Times Square for the annual New Year's Eve ball drop, ABC is gearing up for an annual tradition. "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", said the SiriusXM host. If you can remember, Mariah stopped singing numerous times throughout her performance and blamed Dick's production for the disaster. 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.

TMZ broke a series of stories after last year's disaster, where Mariah claimed she couldn't hear the music through her earpiece.

"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", the statement said. Imagine Dragons, Britney Spears, Nick Jonas, Kelly Clarkson and Shawn Mendes are among those slated to perform. Ryan is the host of television's largest live broadcast New Year's celebration.

Her ex fiancé James also appears to have moved on from their split, as he has been holidaying in Aspen with his new squeeze over the last week. "I think it's to have a crushing performance in Times Square", Seacrest said. Lucy Hale will be hosting in New Orleans.

Mariah Carey will look to redeem herself after a catastrophic and headline-grabbing performance at ABC's 2016-2017 New Year's Rockin' Eve show. 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". Her performance was disastrous, to say the least.

Seacrest, who will share hosting duties again this year with Jenny McCarthy, said he is mostly anxious about the near-record low temperatures expected in New York City on Sunday night.
