Was Mariah Carey 'Sabotaged' on New Year's Eve? Producers Respond to Claims

Mariah Carey‘s team believes that she was “set up to fail” during her performance on New Year’s Eve 2017 and now the producers of Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve are responding to the claims.

The entertainer’s manager Stella Bulochnikov, who is often seen on her docu-series Mariah’s World, spoke to Billboard about the performance, which went horribly wrong when Mariah couldn’t hear through her in-ear monitors.

VIDEO: Watch a clip of the performance from New Year’s Eve

“We told them [the stage managers] that the in-ears were not working 10 minutes before the performance,” Bulochnikov said in her statement (via THR). “They then changed the battery pack, and they were still not working on the frequency four minutes before the show. We let them know again, and they just kept counting her down and reassuring her that they will work as soon as they go live, which never happened — at which point she pulled them out but could not hear the music over the crowd.”

“After the show, I called [Dick Clark Productions'] Mark Shimmel and I said, ‘What the f–k happened?’ He said, ‘Let me call you back,’ then called me back and confirmed the in-ears were not working and asked if I would make a joint statement,” Stella added. “I said, ‘No way.’ I asked him to cut the West Coast feed. He said he could not do that. I asked him why would they want to run a performance with mechanical glitches unless they just want eyeballs at any expense … It’s not artist-friendly, especially when the artist cut her vacation short as a New Year’s Eve gift to them.”
