Mariah Carey has ushered in 2017 with a botched performance on “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin' Eve with Ryan Seacrest” on ABC.

The singer appeared to have technical difficulties during her live performance Saturday night in Times Square. She even stopped singing her song “Emotions,” paced the stage and told the audience to finish the lyrics for her.

She told the crowd, “I’m trying to be a good sport here.”

Carey headlined the festivities in Times Square, where about a million revelers jammed in to greet 2017.

After the song finished Carey looked exasperated.

She started saying, “That was,” then she paused and finally finished by saying, “amazing.”

After the show, she tweeted out, “S--- happens Have a happy and healthy new year everybody! Here's to making more headlines in 2017”
