Mariah Carey is in Aspen with BF Brain Tanaka, but she’ll be leaving for The Big Apple the next day ready to prep for round 2 of Dick Clark’s Rocin’ New Year’s Eve … and this time there’s a plan to avert disaster.
According to TMZ, Mariah and Dick Clark Productions struck a deal where she will come back and perform just before midnight on Dick Clark’s Rockin’ New Year’s Eve broadcast on ABC.
TMZ broke a series of stories after last year’s disaster, where Mariah claimed she couldn’t hear the music through her earpiece. A war erupted, with Dick Clark’s people claiming the system worked fine … the real problem was that Mariah didn’t want to be bothered with a full-on sound check. She had a stand in for part of it, and that, DCP claims, was the source of the problem.
