Mariah Carey’s New Year Perfomance Dubbed ‘Trainwreck’ By Jenny McCarthy
Jenny McCarthy, the co-host of Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve for the past 7 years, has responded to claims that Dick Clark Productions sabotaged Mariah Carey’s new year’s eve performance for ratings.
Giving her input on “The Jenny McCarthy Show”, the host described Carey’s performance as a ‘complete trainwreck’. She said that what was shown was just part of it and that they went through a whole song of Carey just walking around. McCarthy said she felt sorry for Carey at some point, but her sympathy stopped as soon as the singer accused the production company of sabotage.
The host went ahead to deny claims that the We Belong Together singer finished her rehearsal. According to her, a stand-in for Carey did the sound-check. She also described the rehearsal as a dance rehearsal taking place as the singer stood off stage.
During the New Year Show held in New York, Carey stopped singing mid-song as the beat went on, explaining to the audience that the audio was off and that she could not hear the track. She went on to say that a sound check was not done. After the moment went viral, her camp accused Dick Clark Productions of deliberately messing up her performance by use of faulty equipment.
Stella Bulochnikov, Carey’s manager weighed in on the matter and said that the producers should have taken a commercial break when it was noticed that Carey’s earpiece had a hitch. The manager maintained that according to her, the production company wanted a viral moment and some drama at any cost.
The production company refuted the claims as ‘absurd’. According to McCarthy, Dick Clark Productions is an experienced company that has been in the business for 45 years and is very supportive and accommodating to artists. The seven-time New Year Show host maintained that Carey was nervous, chose tough songs to sing and even went ahead to suggest that the Emotions’ singer’s voice is not as good as it was before.
Three days after the show, Carey has since spoken to Entertainment Weekly. She praised Dick Clark as an incredible person. The singer maintained that Clark would not have allowed for an artist to experience what she went through. As a parting shot, she maintained that she will continue doing live events though practice a bit more caution at all times.
