Mariah Carey returns to 'New Year's Rockin' Eve'

It's a redo for the musician Mariah Carey, who will be making a grand return to Times Square to ring in the new year.

Following a spectacular flameout of a performance moments before the ball dropped in Times Square last year, Mariah Carey is giving New Year's Eve another chance.

Mariah Carey's last New Year's Eve performance in Times Square was disastrous, but she'll be back to give it another go on "Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2018". Carey also confirmed her appearance on the show in a joint statement with Dick Clark Productions.

But both sides have kissed and made up.

She half-heartedly mimed her way through her hit "Emotions", in what was meant to be the entertainment climax for the throngs waiting hours in the cold in Times Square. Last year, Carey's performance was a fiasco.
