Mariah Carey’s Manager Lashes Out At ‘Rockin’ Eve’ Producers
Mariah Carey‘s manager lashed out at Dick Clark Productions, the company behind the New Year’s Rockin’ Eve special, following the singer’s disastrous Times Square performance.
Millions of viewers and thousands more congregated in New York City witnessed Carey’s technical difficulties-marred performance, which featured the singer proceeding with the choreographed dance moves while making little effort to actually sing the music, often just speaking directly to the crowd about the sound issues.
In a statement to Billboard, Stella Bulochnikov blamed DCP for continuing with the performance even though Carey’s in-ear monitors weren’t working before she took the stage, as well as not removing the soon-to-be-viral performance from the West Coast feed of the Rockin’ Eve special.
“We told [the stage managers] that the in-ears were not working 10 minutes before the performance,” Bulochnikov said. “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.”
