Mariah Carey’s Team Releases Pics Showing She Was At Rehearsal
Dick Clark Productions says that Mariah Carey chose to skip the rehearsal for her already-infamous New Year’s Eve performance, but Carey’s team have released pics that appear to tell a different story. TMZ has the photos which show Carey at a sound check earlier in the day, around 3 PM according to the site. Sources close to Carey claim that the sound from her earpiece was “choppy” at the time and that Dick Clark Productions’ team said it would be fixed.
Carey has accused DCP of sabotaging her performance in order to get bigger ratings, which the company labeled as “absurd” and defamatory. DCP are accurate in that Carey used a stand-in, who did the dance routine while Carey reportedly did the actual singing during the sound check.
The site also says that Carey’s people claim that people from Dick Clark Productions were “screaming’ about the ear piece glitching out, with one source saying, “I don’t care that her ears didn’t work. She could’ve just winged it.”
