Mariah Carey Walks Off Stage After Lip Sync Snafu on 'New Year's Rockin' Eve'

Mariah Carey (photosMariah Carey photos) was a show stopper during her New Year's Eve performance in Times Square, New York but it was for the wrong reasons.

Carey experienced what some are calling a musical meltdown in front of a live audience of millions on ABC's 'Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve with Ryan Seacrest'.

Carey walked off stage after a technical snafu made it clear she was lip-syncing to some of her biggest songs onstage.

Carey sang 'Auld Lang Syne' before her act started to unravel. The singer's backup dancers walked her down the stairs as she looked puzzled attempting the second song, 'Emotions'.

She blamed a sound check before her performance when she couldn't belt out the 1991 song that earned her a Grammy Award for best female pop vocal.

As the track continued to play, an exasperated Carey said: "We're missing some of these vocals, but it is what it is. Let the audience sing."

Carey made another attempt with her third song of the evening, 'We Belong Together', but after much the same fate with the prerecorded track playing in the background, she gave up and walked off the stage.

"It is what it is," she said. "It just don't get any better."

The singer's performance was to be the headline of the show at 11:30 PM, before the ball dropped in New York's Times Square at midnight.
