The epic failure took social media by storm with people tweeting videos and memes mocking the singer. Carey, who is known for her high pitches apparently is no longer able to sing possibly due to age or lack of practice. Days leading to the New Year's Eve show, she was seen purchasing marijuana from a vending machine. Carey took to twitter to respond by playing the incident off as "things happen" by using colorful language. She blames producers of the show claiming they tried to sabotage her career. The host of the show, Ryan Seacrest remained neutral when asked about the incident stating that he did not see the performance because he was moving to another stage.
