New Year’s Eve Shows Awkward Moments

  • Viral badge

Meltdowns, off-key performances, and bizarre branding. Yup.

Now, we all knew that the New Year’s Eve shows — like award shows and other events — would be a little awkward this year. Between Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve on ABC and New Year’s Eve on NBC, there were definitely a few hiccups.

Here are some of those awkward moments we all love:


For starters, it was a pretty empty Times Square because of COVID-19 restrictions.

no one:

absolutely no one:

And the Planet Fitness branding was a lot, like A LOT.

Jennifer Lopez bashed into the camera during her performance:


She also performed the vocally challenging Aerosmith song “Dream On,” which definitely was not received well:

Didn’t think 2020 could get worse but then we get JLo singing Dream On by Aerosmith. #RockinEve


Cyndi Lauper had a rough time with her performance:


Mariah Carey corrected Andy when he said she “recorded” her song, “All I Want For Christmas Is You,” instead of him making it clear she WROTE it. YES, MARIAH!

Mariah Carey reminding that she even WROTE the biggest christmas song ‘All I Want For Christmas Is you”


And Jennifer Lopez’s performance audio interrupted Mariah’s interview. :/ :/

Not Jlo performing while Mariah Carey speaks 😭😭 Andy AINT SH*T for mentioning Jlo lmaooooo


Andy Cohen went off on New York City’s Mayor Bill de Blasio:


Blake Shelton debuted his new song, “Minimum Wage,” which features the out-of-touch lyrics, “Girl, your love can make a man feel rich on minimum wage.” In 2020, please, no.


Jhené Aiko was mislabeled as Saweetie, SMH:


And lastly, Dr. Jill Biden couldn’t open up her confetti cannon:

Is this a preview of what we can expect in 2021?!? 🤣 #newyearsrockineve #rockineve #newyork #fail #biden #dud
