She will once again be closing out the year in Time Square on Dick Clark's New Years Rockin' Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2018.

The do-over, which may have seemed like a long shot given last year's fiasco and the finger-pointing that followed, is also a way to cash in on the attention whipped up by the controversy.

Mariah Carey Laughs Off Her NYE Performance Debacle was a top 17 story of January 2017: (Radio.com) So, you're Mariah Carey, one of the world's biggest stars for a quarter of a century, and you fail on national TV, big time. It is the television business, after all, where ratings are queen. During what was supposed to be her performance of "Emotions", Carey didn't sing.

The song "We Belong Together" seemed to face the same issues which led to Carey walking off stage.

This time around she will have a full band as well as backup dancers just like she does in Las Vegas. She developed a close association with the holiday season through her hit All I Want for Christmas Is You and for several years has performed a set of Christmas-themed concerts in NY.




After the show, she went on to talk about what happened, blaming Dick Clark productions for sabotaging her with technical glitches and a faulty earpiece. Mariah did them a favour.

Other performers already announced for the live Times Square performances include Camila Cabello, Nick Jonas and Sugarland.

Mariah Carey has confirmed that she will return to Times Square in NY to ring in 2018.

"We can all agree that previous year didn't go exactly as planned and we are thrilled to move forward together to provide America with an incredible night of music and celebration on", Dick Clark Productions and Carey said in a joint statement.
