  • Mariah Carey performs during New Year's Eve 2017 in Times Square

During last year's performance, Carey, 47, was barely singing through most of it, declaring she couldn't hear herself in the mic.

"All I can say is Dick Clark was an incredible person and I was lucky enough to work with him when I first started in the music business", Carey told Entertainment Weekly. But the singer and her team do seem self-aware of last year's problems, as her Twitter post read "take 2", referencing her botched attempt at ringing in the New Year.

But Mariah Carey took some time to relax before the big show as she was spotted leaving Stash Cannabis Dispensary in Aspen, Colorado, on Saturday afternoon.

Nick Jonas, Camila Cabello and Sugarland are also scheduled to perform.

"I'm trying to be a good sport here", she said at one point.

Later, Carey said in an interview shared by The Associated Press that both her earpiece and microphone were "effed up" and that the "wrecked" event had left her feeling "upset and vilified".

Part of the New Years tradition for many is gathering around the TV for Dick Clark's New Years Rockin' Eve, including the live performances that accompany the ball dropping.

For those who didn't get to witness Carey's performance a year ago, suffice it to say that it was marked with technical difficulties. Stella Bulochnikov, her manager at the time, accused the show of sabotaging the performance "to get ratings".

But they intend to make up for it this year during the 2018 New Years Eve party.

Hopefully, it will be all smiles once she returns to Times Square next week. Dick Clark Productions called the accusations "outrageous and frankly absurd".

"Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin'?Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2018" is produced by dick clark productions with Ryan Seacrest, Allen Shapiro and Mike Mahan serving as executive producers and Barry Adelman and Mark Bracco as co-executive producers.
