Stella Bulochnikov pointed the finger at Dick Clark Productions (DCP) for proceeding with the execution despite the fact that Carey’s in-ear screens weren’t working before she made that big appearance, and in addition not evacuating the impending viral execution from the West Coast nourish of the Rockin’ Eve uncommon.
“We told that the in-ears were not working 10 minutes before the performance. They then changed the battery pack, and they were still not working on the frequency four minutes before the show. We let them know again, and they just kept counting her down and reassuring her that they will work as soon as they go live, which never happened”, said Bulochnikov.
After the six-minute execution, Bulochnikov called a DCP executive to inquire as to whether they would expel Carey from the West Coast bolster. “He said he couldn’t do that. I asked him for what good reason they would need to run an execution with mechanical glitches unless they simply need eyeballs to any detriment,” Bulochnikov said. “It’s not craftsman cordial.” The West Coast nourish broadcast unedited.
In a different proclamation, Carey’s illustrative Nicole Perna said Dick Clark Productions “set [Carey] up to flop.” However, Dick Clark Productions firmly denied contriving against Carey or her execution in their own announcement that reacts to the Carey group’s claims.
“To suggest that DCP would ever intentionally compromise the success of any artist is defamatory, outrageous and frankly absurd. In very rare instances there are of course technical errors that can occur with live television, however, an initial investigation has indicated that DCP had no involvement in the challenges associated with Ms. Carey’s New Year’s Eve performance. We want to be clear that we have the utmost respect for Ms. Carey as an artist and acknowledge her tremendous accomplishments in the industry”, Dick Clark Productions said in a statement.
