Carey experienced technical difficulties during Saturday night’s live performance. The mayhem began when she started to sing her 1991 hit, “Emotions.”

She told the crowd, “We can’t hear but… We didn’t have a check for this song. So, we’ll just say it went to number one, and that’s what it is, okay.”
