Mariah Carey’s Lip Sync Mess

For those who don’t have cable and weren’t able to watch the ball drop in NYC a few days ago. Mariah was brought into ring in the new year and instead of watching a dazzling performance, we all witnesses an epic disaster. Mariah started the concert singing “Auld Lang Syne” but as I watched it, I noticed that her lips were out of sync with the music. Was she lip-singing? Then when ‘Emotions’ came on, she couldn’t sing to it and danced around on the stage. It was a meltdown in front of millions. Mariah, the diva herself, even owned up it saying: ”We didn’t have a soundcheck but it’s New Year’s, baby…I’m trying to be a good sport here.” Then she let the audience do the singing for her. I then went to Twitter to comment and see what was up. Apparently, Mariah was prepared to lip sync, but many of her vocals didn’t play at all ― and when they did, she was often far out of sync with them.

After the shock and awe of her performance, what I liked about Mariah’s next move was to apologize on Twitter. She owned up to the mistake and moved on. And that’s what life and business is about. You don’t blame other people, you take responsibility, you take the good with the bad and you promise to make more headlines in 2017.

Happy New Year!
