Mariah Carey did not have a good end to 2016, with a disastrous New Year's Eve performance in Times Square.

The audio track malfunctioned while she was lip syncing to some of her biggest songs onstage in front of millions.

Carey paced in frustration across the stage as the malfunction continued.

The pop star's backup dancers walked her down the stairs as she looked puzzled and attempted to sing another song.

"It is what it is," she said. "It just don't get any better."

Then she walked off stage.
