Mariah Carey shrugged off an awkward, botched New Year’s Eve performance plagued by technical difficulties early Sunday, observing: « S*** happens. »
The singer struggled through her Times Square appearance that was aired on « Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest » on ABC.
She was the headline act at the event, where about a million revelers were ushering in 2017.
Carey stopped lip-synching to her song « Emotions, » paced the stage and told the audience to finish the lyrics for her. « I’m trying to be a good sport here, » she told the crowd.
Later, the visibly unhappy singer abruptly left the stage.
A representative for Carey confirmed to The Associated Press there were technical difficulties.
The star later posted on Twitter and Instagram, saying: « S*** happens. Have a happy and healthy new year everybody! Here’s to making more headlines in 2017. »
