During the now infamous live TV performance, Carey blamed her meltdown on sound checks and technical difficulties, before finally telling the live TV audience to "sing along, well not sing along but have a moment" during her third and final performance of "We Belong Together."

Amid her camp's continued claims of sabotage, all of which have been denied by Dick Clark Productions, the source told, "she seemed completely unprepared! It seemed like she should really only blame herself, because she lived up to her diva name."

To make matters worse, the insider claimed that Carey, 46, screamed at bystanders after the brouhaha.
