In response, they claimed that Carey hadn't put enough time into rehearsing her set and saying that she showed up unprepared for her performance that evening. Ryan Seacrest will host the primetime festivities and lead the traditional countdown to midnight from Times Square in New York City, as he has for the last 12 years, with live onsite reporting from actress and comedian Jenny McCarthy.

Now, both sides have apparently kissed and made up.
Thrilled to see her return, one fan responded to her post: "Super excited about this and so proud of you!"More news: United Continental Holdings, Inc. (UAL) — Trending Stock Alert
The microphone system last year began to malfunction as Carey sang the opening notes of the New Year's song "Auld Lang Syne".
Producers of the popular year-end program have confirmed that Carey will ring in 2018 with a celebratory performance. Her response at the time? That's right, I'm talking about New Year's Eve. During their time working together, they have accomplished great things, including, most recently, Mariah Carey's new music and motion picture projects for this upcoming holiday season.
"Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2018" marks the 46th anniversary of America's largest celebration of the year and will include 5 ½ hours of special performances and reports on New Year's celebrations from around the globe. Sources within the network told the site that Carey would be the "featured performer" for the show.
Carey also teased her return to the NYE broadcast on Twitter, calling it "take two".
