Mariah Carey Dick Clark Productions Says ... Give Her The Chair!!

Second time's a charm On Friday it was reported by TMZ that Mariah will be in charge of a mandatory sound check

"Mariah Carey is adamant she'll be doing the soundcheck ahead of her performance at Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin" Eve' because she doesn't want a repeat of last year.

Ryan Seacrest and Jenny McCarthy are holding down the fort in Times Square with tonight's headlining performers.

Ryan Seacrest has been hosting Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve live in Times Square since the end of 2005 and his girlfriend Shayna Taylor doesn't mind that he'll be working at the stroke of midnight.

Ryan told Female First: "This year we are anxious to see Mariah come back".

Seacrest added that the timing for the NY lineup - which includes the reunited Sugarland, Camila Cabello, and Nick Jonas - couldn't be better, as all three have big years ahead of them. As for the central time zone, Lucy Hale will host for the second time in New Orleans where Imagine Dragons and Walk The Moon will take the stage.

Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve With Ryan Seacrest airs on ABC on December 31 starting at 8 p.m. ET. On the West Coast, Kelly Clarkson, Kane Brown, BTS, Fitz and The Tantrums, Khalid with Marshmello, Shawn Mendes, Charlie Puth, Florida Georgia Line, Halsey, Portugal. We do wonder if things are reasonably subject to change at the moment, given that this is now slated to be one of the coldest New Year's Eves in recent memory. The ABC telecast will feature parties from both New York City and Hollywood.

McCarthy and Seacrest hope this kind of gesture carries into the new year.

You may remember that she headlined the festivities last New Year's and she stopped singing multiple times throughout her set of songs. The special also will be live on Facebook, as well as the network's live streaming and on demand subscription service Univision Now. As the video shows, that didn't work out so well, so hopefully this year everything is set up for Carey to succeed in her shot at redemption.

New Year's Eve Live With Andy Cohen and Anderson Cooper: This year, Bravo king Andy Cohen will join Anderson Cooper as his co-host for CNN's New Year's Eve telecast, replacing Kathy Griffin.
