By now you’ve probably heard about Mariah Carey’s disastrous New Year’s Eve’s performance at Times Square just before the end of 2016. On the bright side for Carey, at least there weren’t tens of millions of people watching on television and hundreds of millions that would see it on the internet afterward. Oh wait, never mind.

So yes it was an absolute nightmare of a night for Carey, exposing her as a lip-sync performer and just flat-out embarrassing her in front of the entire world. But she should look the Steve Harvey debacle for a playbook to what to do next. After all, all press is good press, so if Carey’s willing to make fun of herself she can capitalize greatly from this.

Here’s the video of the botched performance, for all of your schadenfreude needs.


As I’m sure you can imagine, the Twitter reaction to Carey’s performance was both ruthless and hilarious. Here are some of the funniest reactions:

In 2017 we are all Mariah Carey back-up dancers, capering in our purple jackets, waving our fans, and wondering wtf our leader is doing.
