While 2016 has been a terrible year, Mariah Carey?s NYE fail might have given the singer something that will live on for 2017. The 46-year-old singer?s performance on Dick Clark?s New Year?s Rockin? Eve 2017 didn?t go as planned. It is clear that Carey lip-synced to the class song ?Aude Lang Syne.?
As a result, Twitter users have reacted in various ways. Some Twitter users say that Carey?s performance is truly the perfect representation of 2016. And apparently, Carey was able to give 2016 the send-off it deserves through a disastrous performance that can never be forgotten.
In the midst of figuring out where in the song she was supposed to sing, Carey said, ?Well Happy New Year!?. She also added, ?We did not have a check for this song, we will just say it went to number one.? Carey still tried to continue the performance.

However, she just performed the choreography alongside some vocal riffs. After some time, she eventually gave up. Carey then proceeded to sing along with the backing vocal track in the next song titled ?We Belong Together.? However, she gave up on it too.
In the end of her performance, she appears to be defeated. People?s various reaction on Twitter can be found below.

Meanwhile, it didn?t take long before some Twitter user turned this whole ordeal into politics
I'm choosing to believe Mariah Carey's performance was an artistic reinterpretation of the 2016 Presidential election.

While it is indeed a hilarious, as well as disastrous, there?s no doubt that Carey felt terrible too. As a matter of fact, the video below indicates that she?s just as disappointed as most of the people are.

Furthermore, the production company stated that Carey?s performance wasn?t sabotaged. Rumors suggest that Carey was a victim of foul play given that her earpiece wasn?t working at the time of her performance. However, the production company rejected the idea and stated that the company had no involvement in the difficulties that took place during Carey?s performance
