|Mariah Carey performed during New Year's Eve celebrations in Times Square in New York.|
I just watched the video, it was bad. Before the ball dropped and 2016 finally came to an end, revelers in Times Square and viewers watching at home got an awkward treat from Mariah Carey.The pop diva had just finished singing ‘‘Auld Lang Syne’’ as part of ‘‘Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve With Ryan Seacrest.’’ Then the track of her 1991 hit ‘‘Emotions’’ began. ‘‘Got me feeling,’’ Carey attempted, before stopping and telling her backup dancers to ‘‘just walk me down’’ the stairs.
‘‘We can’t hear,’’ she said. Throughout the rest of the song, Carey walked around the stage and alternated between attempting to sing a phrase and explaining what was happening.
‘‘We didn’t have a check for this song, so we'll just sing. It went to number one,’’ she said. ‘‘We’re missing some of the vocals, but it is what it is.’’ Check out the video!!!
