Mariah Carey set for first performance since THAT New Year's Eve disaster

Mariah Carey will be hoping to put her disastrous New Year's Eve performance behind her this week - once and for all.

The pop superstar rounded off 2016 in a controversial way at Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve with Ryan Seacrest , with a set that was marred by technical difficulties.

However, Mariah is set to leave all that in the past as she steps out for her first performance since December 31 with a special rendition of new ballad I Don't.

The singer will appear on Kimmy Kimmel live on Wednesday, and shared the news with a picture of the pair on Twitter.

In an audio recording she released on Twitter, Mariah previously expressed her disappointment in how the performance went on New Year's Eve.

She said: "I haven't really addressed the situation that happened on New Year's Eve, and in time I will. But for now, I want everyone to know that I came to New Year's Eve in New York in great spirits and was looking forward to a celebratory moment with the world.

"It's a shame that we were put into the hands of a production team with technical issues who chose to capitalise on circumstances beyond our control.

"It's not practical for a singer to sing live and be able to hear themselves properly in the middle of Times Square with all the noise, the freezing cold, the smoke from the smoke machines, and thousands of people celebrating, especially when their ear monitors are not working properly.

"Listen guys, they foiled me, thus it turned into an opportunity to humiliate me and all those who were excited to ring in the New Year with me. Eventually, I will explain this in greater detail than I can give here."
