Even if you didn't tune in to Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve on Saturday, you probably heard about a certain part of the celebration — and nope, it wasn't the ball drop. Before officially kicking off 2017, Mariah Carey had a confusing New Year's Eve performance. Due to technical difficulties, things didn't go as planned. She claimed she didn't soundcheck the song "Emotions," which came on during the medley. So instead, she let the fans sing. Social media had a field day with the blunder. Tons of people posted tweets and jokes about Carrie's New Year's Rockin' Eve performance.

Following the incident, Carey's rep released the following statement to Bustle, "There was a production issue. Technical difficulties. There unfortunately was nothing she could do to continue with the performance given the circumstances."

In all honesty, Carey handled the mishap like a champ. She didn't seem phased at all and instead pointed out it was a number one song when it came out. And at least there's another upside: Technically this performance happened during the final moments of 2016, meaning it's so last year.

Still, since people can't stop talking about it, here's a round up of the best jokes and memes about Carey's performance.
