Mariah Carey to perform live from Times Square

History will be made when international superstar Mariah Carey performs live from Times Square on “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve 2006 on Saturday, December 31st on the ABC Television Network. Her performance will mark the first time in the 34 year history of the program that a singer will perform from the famed New York landmark before nearly a million fans in Times Square and millions more across the nation. Ms. Carey will join hosts Dick Clark and Ryan Seacrest as the final minutes of the year are counted down climaxed by the traditional ball drop.

What a way to cap off an amazing year. This year’s 8-time Grammy Award nominee Mariah Carey is riding high on the success of her 5-times RIAA platinum album The Emancipation Of Mimi, which has sold more than 7 million copies around the world and spun off three smash hit #1 singles: “We Belong Together, “Shake It Off, and “Don't Forget About Us. In early September, Mariah made music history when she became the first female lead artist in the 47 years of the Billboard Hot 100 ever to occupy the #1 and #2 chart positions in the same week, with "We Belong Together" and “Shake It Off, respectively. With 16 #1 career singles to her credit, Mariah is the only active artist with the hitmaking potential to match or surpass the all-time records of the Beatles (with 20 #1's) and Elvis Presley (18 #1's).
