Mariah Carey believes her New Year’s Eve performance on ABC was sabotaged by TV execs for ratings and her Lambily launched a cyber attack on Jennifer Lopez for being shady.
Let’s start with the tragic performance that took place in Times Square last night! Roc and Roe’s mama literally gave up on stage when her earpiece allegedly stopped working.
She snatched it out and attempted to sing a few times before letting her vocal track do the work for her as she sashayed back and forth across the stage like it was a high school talent show.
Please allow me to roll the tape.
Hours after her performance, Mariah Carey took to Twitter and said, “Sh*t happens!”

But, now her camp says the Queen of the Lambily is calling sabotage!
We’re told after the interview Mariah and her team went to the production trailer and complained to Dick Clark execs her inner ears weren’t working. Mariah sources say they were told her inner ears would be on a different frequency when she hit the stage and there would be no problem.
Fast forward to 6 minutes before her performance. Mariah was in the holding tent for last minute makeup, and she was alarmed, telling the production team she could barely hear anything. Mariah sources say they were assured the tent muffled the sound, and it would be fine on stage.
At that point someone said her mic pack wasn’t working because the battery was dead, so they changed packs.
Mariah was suspicious and got on stage 4 minutes early to test things out, and she couldn’t hear anything in her inner ear. She and her team say they complained repeatedly, but nothing was done.
To make matters worse and even more suspicious, Mariah’s people say when she got on stage the prompter wasn’t working. The prompter has the lyrics when they appear in the song as well as stage cues.
Mariah ripped the inner earpiece out — out of frustration — and thought she had a fighting chance just listening to the music, but the crowd was so loud in Times Square she could hear nothing.
Short story — Mariah’s team believe there are too many coincidences and too many warnings … they say it was sabotage “so they could get Mariah drama.” We know Mariah’s people fired off an email to an Exec at Dick Clark Productions, saying, “This is sabotage.”
