    Nothing like the expectation of Mariah Carey screwing it up again, lip-synching again, or acting like a diva again, to increase ratings. She didn’t disappoint on the acting-the-diva part!

    You used “is” but you meant to use “are.”

    I’m sure these ratings are can be attributed to the arctic temperatures that plagued a lot of the country. Here in the Northeast, many bars and clubs took a bit hit on NY Eve when it came to numbers due to peoples staying home because in some places, the temperatures was below zero. These people who stayed home probably tuned into the NY Eve countdown shows.

    agreed, but she nailed her performance. i was surprised lol

  • timmyy

    cant lie, i tuned in to watch mariah carey to something horrific, but she killed her performance. i mean that woman 100% REDEEMED herself.

    she sang in – 10 degree weather & didnt lip synch a SINGLE WORD.

    i have to give credit where its due.

    seems like the media is giving her credit too

    i wouldnt doubt for a second that the reason the views sky rocketed was because of mariah carey alone..
