Like all of you, we waited we with baited breath over how Mariah might come across in Times Square this time around. As we all might remember the controversy of her last year attempt when Mariah’s onstage monitors became problematic, at best, during her two-song attempt of “Auld Lang Syne,” and her hit “Emotions.” The Twitter barbs and online accusations that went back and forth between the singer and Dick Clark Productions all seemed to be mended for this year and in that so extreme cold NYC night Mariah performed “Vision of Love” and “Hero” flawlessly.
The #WatermelonDress phenomena squished its way into social media frenzy during 4th of July. Ryan Seacrest actually “dropped” a picture on Twitter wearing the watermelon cut out held over a picture of himself a few days before the 4th . But by all accounts, Twitter exploded over the trend during and then following the U.S. Independence Celebration.
