Mariah Carey’s meltdown on national television is the talk of Twitter as 2017 began with a bang.
The diva stormed off the stage in New York’s Times Square during the New Year’s Eve telecast on ABC after the wrong lip-synced track played during her performance.
Carey appeared flustered and on the verge of tears as she declined to sing some lines of her songs.
She stormed around the stage, repeatedly asking for the monitors to be turned on during her performance, before trying to rescue her set by dancing briefly.
However, she didn’t last long, and then said into her microphone: ‘I’m trying to be a good sport here.’
‘Who needs to drop the ball for New Years when Mariah Carey already covered it,’ tweeted another user.
Others compared her to infamous lip-syncers like Ashley Simpson and 80s pop duo Milli Vanilli.
Another Twitter user wrote that ‘Hellen Keller could have lip synced to Mariah Carey better than Mariah Carey.’
