Mariah Carey performs on live TV for first time since disastrous NYE performance

Fox411: Tommy Mottola slams Carey's performance, team


Mariah Carey performed live for the first time since her disastrous New Year's Eve performance.

Carey made her big live TV return Wednesday night when she performed her new song "I Don't" on "Jimmy Kimmel Live." The song was inspired by her breakup from Australian billionaire James Packer.

So how did the singer do?

Wearing a curve-hugging red gown, Carey belted out her new single with the help of rapper YG without a hitch.

One fan wrote on Twitter, "So Mariah Carey just served outstanding vocals live on Jimmy Kimmel."

Another chimed in, "...Mariah Carey! Is looking amazing tonight!!! & sing amazing as well on jimmy kimmel tonight."

It was the first time Carey had performed live since her less than wonderful performance on "Dick Clark's Rockin' New Year's Eve." The singer stopped singing in the middle of her performance, began pacing the stage and told the audience to finish the lyrics for her.

Carey blamed her disastrous show on technical difficulties and said it was Dick Clark Productions fault for not addressing the tech issues before the performance, including a malfunctioning earpiece. The production company denied Carey's claims.
