Washington D.C.[USA], Jan 2 (ANI): The world has been talking about Mariah Carey's lip-syncing mishap on New Year's eve, stating it as one of the most awkward television moments of the year.

After a brief, flawless " Auld Lang Syne," it was all downhill for Mariah Carey on New Year's Eve.

A spokeswoman for Carey's team addressed the awkward performance that aired during 'Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve with Ryan Seacrest' on Saturday night.

"Unfortunately there was nothing she could do to continue with the performance given the circumstances," the rep told the Associated Press as reported by People Magazine.

On a related note, Carey wrote "s-t happens" in an address on Twitter in the aftermath. "Have a happy and healthy new year everybody! Here's to making more headlines in 2017." (ANI)
