Let’s be like Mariah Carey’s dancers in 2017

So if you read the papers yesterday, you already know that Mariah Carey had a rough performance when she tried to ring in the New Year.

Hey. It happens, but the twitterverse was quick to jump all over the veteran performer because I’m pretty sure all those tweeters have been in a similar situation, and handled it better.

That, or they are just nasty, small-minded people.

But watch the backup dancers. They didn’t miss a lick and I have decided it would be awesome to approach this new year with the same kind of devil-may-care attitude of those dancers. They’re dancing like everyone is watching, and the effect makes me happy. So be it. Helloooo, 2017.

  1. I’m a little surprised she went on without a working earpiece.
    I’m even more surprised DCP insisted she go on without a working earpiece. DCP has been working with that kind of performance tech since American Bandstand was on the air. It seems out of character for them, even given the recent sales and acquisitions of that property. DCP is a billion dollar enterprise. Letting something like this happen doesn’t really inspire investor confidence…or artist confidence…or venue confidence.

    1. All good points. I thought she handled herself as well as can be expected. But dang.
