Ryan Seacrest and Jenny McCarthy weighed in on Mariah Carey’s back to perform on new year’s eve after her disastrous performance last year.
The New Year’s Eve co-hosts spoke with US Weekly about Carey to sign up for round two for “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve With Ryan Seacrest.”
The “American Idol” host turned out to be the shock of Carey’s failing performance.
“Last year it was not as planned. We all know that,” said Seacrest of Carey’s public flub. “I give her enormous credit for saying, ‘I’ll be back. I’m on the same stage at the exact same moment before the ball falls in front of tens of millions of people.”
McCarthy echoed his feelings.
The new Year celebrations by the numbers
“It is a wow! I am truly grateful that not only do they say yes, but we gave her the chance. It’s like, how many times would we like to have a second chance in life? I know I need about 40 of them. So I am honored that she said yes, and I am honored to be a part of a show that is something so beautiful,” said the SiriusXM host.
In Carey 2016 performance, the pop star claimed that she could not hear the music, and stopped singing on live tv when the images broadcast that showed her obvious lip syncing.
