Mariah Carey is returning to the scene of her 2016-2017 New Year’s Eve debacle — Times Square in New York City — for a “redemptive” performance, Variety has confirmed. The singer, who famously suffered a major technical malfunction during her previous performance for “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve With Ryan Seacrest,” and spent her airtime vamping for the camera without singing a note, will once again take the stage at 11:45 p.m.
This time, she’s expected to have a grand production more in line with her Las Vegas residency with a full band and dancers. Production company Dick Clark Productions made the ask of Carey, who is now being managed by Roc Nation, and she agreed without hesitation, says a source.
Other performances set for the show, which airs on ABC, include Camila Cabello, Nick Jonas and Sugarland in addition to Britney Spears, who will appear via remote from her “Piece Of Me” show in Las Vegas.
