‘The Talk’: Sharon Osbourne Weighs In On Mariah Debacle

The singer "didn't explain it properly to the viewers"

Mariah Carey could have communicated better.

The Grammy winning diva did a lousy job of letting viewer know why her New Year’s Eve performance was imploding, Sharon Osbourne revealed on Tuesday’s edition of THE TALK.

Carey, of course, wrapped up 2016 with a cringeworthy lip sync snafu during DICK CLARK’S NEW YEAR’S ROCKIN’ EVE on ABC.

The singer blamed a faulty ear piece while her reps claimed the producers staged the fail for ratings.

“Everything is against the artist when you do a performance like that…a technical nightmare,” Osbourne says.

“However, I think that Mariah didn’t explain it properly to the viewers, to the crowd…if she’d have taken the time out to say, ‘Look everyone, my in-ears are not working, I can hear nothing. Let’s all just sing along to the track.’ And I think it would have been the way to go and to stop all this speculation.”

THE TALK airs weekday afternoons on CBS.
