.MariahCarey's manager says 'Rockin' Eve' producers wanted "eyeballs at any expense," DCP calls claims "absurd" https://t.co/pl5qxGVxkU— billboard (@billboard) January 2, 2017
-Mariah's manager claims that Mariah's in-ears weren't working before the performance yet the production staff reassured them that they'd fine on stage. As we know now when it was time for the performance, Mimi still couldnt properly hear the music.
-Her management also asked for the performance to be removed from the West Coast feed but they were denied.
-Another rep for Mariah stated that Dick Clark's production team set her up to fail.
-Dick Clark's Productions have refuted these claims calling them absurd and place the blame Mariah's own tech team for the sound failure.
Also, here's Mimi's very festive pre-show interview with Ryan Seacrest. She also complains about not hearing him towards the end.
