- New Year’s Eve Chaos
- In rare instances, there are technical errors that occur on live television. For example, during Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve Mariah Carey, along with many other performers, took the stage. While some put on great performances, Mariah Carey did not. In the middle of her on-stage performance of "Emotions,” Carey's lip syncing was very off, and it was noticeable to her audience. The reasoning behind this, despite what you may have heard, isn't because she was drunk or high... it was because of technical difficulties. Mariah's manager tried to blame the faulty wiring on the producer to take the blame off of Carey. The producers did know about the difficulties they were having with the wiring, however they let the performance go on to increase ratings.
