Mimi is finally taking action following her New Year's Eve failed performance on "Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest."
The R&B Diva is axed her music director, Anthony Burrell earlier on Wednesday. "He’s not being brought back [in 2017] for a number of reasons," according to an insider.
According to reports, Burrell had Carey’s back-up singers moved off stage prior to the mishap-filled set, leaving her without their vocal support when her in-ears malfunctioned.
After the incidence, Mariah said that the experience has made her lose trust in outsiders. "It’s not going to stop me from doing a live event in the future. But it will make me less trusting of using anyone outside of my own team."
Though Burrell haven't made a comment about him been fired, he tweeted, "I haven’t been able to watch NYE performance. 30 sec from live TV, boss couldn’t hear her own vocal in her in-ears from Mic. #heartbroken." Sucks to see all of the hateful messages," He continued. Peep are so quick to judge, not knowing we were all in a state of panic."
Mariah is set to hit the road with Lionel Richie starting this March. Click here for full tour dates.
