Mariah won't be missing sound check at NYE rehearsal this year

Just like in recent years, the 2018 celebration will be held live from New York City's Times Square, with Ryan Seacrest - who replaced Dick Clark since he retired as the event's host - hosting.

During last year's "Rockin Eve" show in, Carey struggled to sing her song "Emotions" while a set of prerecorded vocals played in the background.

Mariah Carey performs during a concert in Times Square on New Year's Eve in NY, U.S. December 31, 2016.

After Carey left the stage, she tweeted that "s-- happens".

Mariah and Bryan have been practically inseparable since she split from her billionaire fiance James Packer last October. "She's a legendary, iconic artist so we're excited to have her back to do it again". And this New Year's Eve, Carey is the headliner and says we can expect something similar to her Las Vegas show - a big production with a full band and backup dancers.


The Dick Clark show will celebrate the new year across America's time zones, heading down to New Orleans with Imagine Dragons, Walk the Moon and Lucy Hale to see 2018 kick off in the Central Time Zone.

"I give her tremendous credit for saying, 'I'm coming back". The pop diva confirmed that she will return to Times Square in NY to ring in 2018, a year after she was humiliated by technical issues at the annual televised ball-drop. Here's everything you need to know to get you up to speed.

In Carey's 2016 performance, the pop star claimed she couldn't hear the music and stopped singing on live television when footage aired that showed her clearly lip syncing.

Seacrest, who will share hosting duties again this year with Jenny McCarthy, said he is mostly anxious about the near-record low temperatures expected in New York City on Sunday night.

"It is hard to perform in Times Square", Ryan Seacrest said on his On Air With Ryan Seacrest 102.7 KIIS-FM radio show in January, "[Carey] knows what Times Square is about.
