1. Mariah Carey's New Year's Eve Performance Goes Awry
The first real viral moment of 2017 goes to Mariah Carey, who awkwardly lip-synced through an entire New Year's Eve performance after audio equipment went haywire. Though her actual performance went down in 2016, the aftermath of it was felt well into the new year. Mimi and her team blamed sabotage on the part of Dick Clark Productions (a blame they vehemently denied), and... well, things ultimately got really weird.
